I was in Paihia for two days. It was a great value and I would stay there again.

As the other reviewers have mentioned, it's clean and close enough to the beach but still secluded. It's really a trade off in Paihia - if you want something with a great view of the beach, you have to be willing to tolerate the stares of all the tourists walking by :) But considering it was only a 10 minute walk from the main pier, I could just as easily take my reading material and find a nice place to sit right on the beach.

Extremely helpful and friendly staff. I would use it again if I were to visit the Bay of Islands again.

Clean, tidy, nice facilities, close to beach yet still secluded and not exposed to the road. Spa bath suite recommended for couples. Friendly and helpful managers. Is now the only motel my wife and I (and our kids) will be using in Paihia. Absolutely recommend.

Room Tip: Choose one of the spa bath suites if you're travelling as a couple, well worth it.

Recently in our trip to New Zealand my wife and I decided to take a trip away from the family we were staying with headed towards the Bay of Islands. Having never visited the area we looked ahead beforehand and found an amazing deal at the Edelweiss which seemed to be located perfectly.

When we arrived we we're quickly checked in and escorted to our room. The location was superb, less than 1 minute walk take you directly to the beach front near a few bars and restaurants but you were far enough away not to be bothered by the noise. The room itself was very clean with plenty of space and a good sized bathroom. If this was all the hotel was to have we would have had a bargain but there was much more.

There is a pool which both my wife and I made very good use of with a spa and BBQ available for use if you want with a laundry room which again we made good use of. We were both surprised by the amount of facilities available to us and delighted with the Motel.

Trish and Jim were excellent hosts throughout our stay, we were that thrilled with the area and Motel that we were fortunate enough to be able to book another nights stay with them. We expected to be charged the nightly rate for the additional night but we were charged the same (special promotional) rate we received for the previous nights. We also booked a trip through the Motel after seeing that this is a service they provide, we were again surprised and delighted with the extra discount Trish was able to secure for us on this booking.

Overall we were both delighted with our stay here and would have no hesitation with visiting again. Trish and Jim are excellent hosts and care deeply about their guests experiences of their whole trip.

Room Tip: We were in room 7 and would recommend this for any couple.

Set back a little from the beach but still less than 10 minute walk from city centre. We stayed for 3 nights in an upper story unit with small but well equipped kitchen. The next street along has a few backpacker hostels and each night there was noise until at least midnight but certainly not enough to keep anyone awake. The owners are lovely and quite helpful. The unit was clean and reasonably modern. Only drawback was that there were only 4 analogue and no digital TV channels but guessing this will change when NZ goes digital in 2 weeks. We booked at a discounted rate and value for money was excellent and seemed better than any others in the area.

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms are much brighter and have a private balcony, also more spacious and worth the sm...
