We had spent a couple of days in Auckland then headed to Paihia for 3 days of a month long holiday of the North and South Islands. We had booked approx. 6 months before travelling as we were told February is the most popular holiday month of the year. We were greeted by a very friendly gentleman, I think Pel, he was very helpful. We had booked a one bed and were given 2 bed. The rooms were clean, great kitchen, and lovely comfortable bed. The balcony had a beautiful view over the Bay. We were within walking distance of main thoroughfare and beach. Sadly the weather was terrible, we had booked a boat trip through the manager out to "the hole in the rock" but the weather on the water was pretty wild so he kindly cancelled our trip, no problems. We did decide on our last day to take a ferry trip to Russell Island, the water was pretty rough but worth the trip. You worry sometimes when you book accommodation on line but I would recommend Admirals View to anyone. Great accommodation!!
