“Pretty little Paihia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

A lovely little town, with excellent facilities catering for travellers. Clean and tidy. Volunteers do a great job to manage traffic, on cruise ship days, when there is also a local market selling local wares. Easy to get to both Russell & Waitangi from here, on coach, foot or ferry.

“A must place o go”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

We had just two nights in Paihia at Morepork B&B ( see seperate review). We did the Bay of Islands boat cruise, went to Russell, & wandered around the village. Had Dinner at the restaurant on the pier.
Weather was a bit iffy, so we reckon Paihia in lovely sunshine would be fabulous. We will certainly visit again.

Kayak to Russell, you'll be glad you did. Paihia is a lovely place, wish we could have stayed longer.

“Stunning a beautiful place”

Beautiful weather gave us the best time here. Nothing about it was not nice. Great time of year to go. Hot in the sun and great temperature at night to sleep

“A Tranquil Seascape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

This is a really beautiful harbour with boats of every description to view. Some are moored and others are taking visitors on the numerous trips available in the area. There is always something of interest to view.
