We arrived quite late on a Monday night, but Paul was there to meet us with a smile, to show us our room.
The units are clean and comfortable, just right to use as a base for activities around Paihia. They are centrally placed which is ideal as I am unable to walk far without tiring. Restaurants and convenience stores and the pier all easily reached from the Motel. The units have cooking facilities, a good sized fridge, a microwave and dishwasher.
We decided to stay another night while we were sightseeing and rang Paul to see if he could put us up again. He cheerfully allocated us another room at a very reasonable price.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I will look no further than the Dolphin Motel on my next trip to Paihia.
