hello, stayed 2 nights mid December. previously booked a 6 bed unit but when we arrived we had 2 extra teenagers with us and Andre quickly sorted us an extra 3 bed unit so the older girls went in there. units well appointed with tv,tea and coffee facilities and a pint of milk which is a nice touch.
andre advised us of local shops and stuff to do.
kids went in pool several times during our stay and we also hired the kayaks and went from the private beach front out onto the river and right up to the falls which we all enjoyed as we were able to get out of the kayaks and mess about in the water,we were also able to catch up on some washing in the laundry(not in the kayaks) we enjoyed our stay thank you

We enjoyed staying in this clean, well appointed motel unit. Lovely view, great shower, useful kitchen. Wish I'd brought my swimming togs! Haruru Falls offers a gateway to the Far North but there are also lots to do here too, A walk through the kiwi reserve and on the mangrove boardwalk to the grounds at Waitangi is very scenic and at 5 km, an easy walk for most people. Get a ride back!

Room Tip: Downstairs by the pool - very convenient.

Stayed for 3nights at this Hotel/Motel and were doing an overnight cruise on the Ippiri cruise and Anton was kind enough to let us leave all of our luggage in the unit and we did not have to pay fr the room for that night. The rooms were great, two separate rooms as we were two couples travelling and most of motels have a bed in the living room. We had a lovely balcony where we could sit and have drinks before dinner. Anton was a great host and very helpful. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed a couple of nights in clean, comfortable if a little dated accommodation. The location is pretty and about 5 minutes drive from the heart of Paihia so its important to have a car. The manager and his lovely wife are friendly and helpful. The location is picturesque and the rooms overlook the river and the falls can been seen from the garden. There is a swimming pool but as it wasn't heated only brave hearts used it while we were there. Don't be put off by the road view of the motel its much prettier on the river side.
