The friendliest host ever! He went out of his way to help us, even giving us extra wifi for free!
The rooms were comfortable but dated in decor. One of the bathroom lights didn't work, neither did one of the kitchen sockets. Luckily there were two in both!
So, a little bit run down but very clean. Once the upgrade has been done it will be a superb little motel. It was definitely value for money, so nothing to complain about!

Room Tip: Some rooms are dated in decor. Request info before booking. All have a great outlook!

Motel is on Wanganui River just out of Piahia. Excellent position. Our room was dated although the owner said that all rooms other than four (including ours) have been updated. We originally booked for two nights and ended up staying for four. Rates were reasonable.

Stayed at the Falls Motel. The owners were so warm and friendly and welcoming. Excellent value for money. Husband and wife team with their 2 lovely children whom we met while swimming in the pool. Great facilities and location, just out of Paihia and Waitangi. Wanted to stay longer but had to go home.
I will definitely stay again but not sure if the same owners will still be there as they were in the process of selling up. It is not often you get sincere and genuine people like this couple.

Room Tip: Most rooms

We were recommended this resort by a young shop assistant in Wellington. We were a bit nervous due to the fact the motel had mixed reviews. However we were very pleasantly surprised. The location is excellent with marvellous views. The Motel is old but it is very clean and the owners are very friendly and accommodating.
And it is very cheap for the accommodation provided.

We are not usually campers but we decided to give it a try. We were very impressed with the Falls Camp ground. We got put right on the waterfront and our site was quite a decent size also. Surprisingly quiet even though the camp ground is near the main road too. Loved the free WiFi each day (yes I know we are camping) haha and also the kayaks for hire. The only the room for improvement was the bathrooms, a little run down - needing some definite TLC. Only 5minutes to the centre of Paihia, location is fantastic.
