Reviewed October 23, 2009

Stayed here for only 1 night unfortunately. The place was spotless and for a studio room was spacious, lovely little balcony with table and chairs outside. Close to everything. The owners were very welcoming and so helpful. Cant say enough good things about the place and will definately be going back.

On 16th. Sept. 2009, Together with my family I stayed at the above mentioned Motel. We were very impressed.. The owners and staff went out of their way to make sure that we enjoyed our holiday. We had most magnificent views from our rooms and it was only a few minutes walk to the centre of the town. I have no hesitation in recommending to others

We recently spent 8 days at Swiss Chalet with family in the 3 bedroom executive suite. The views from this apartment were absolutely magnificent. Maureen and Phil were extremely welcoming and friendly. The rooms were spotless, beautiful fresh linen and towels and the cleaning staff also very friendly and accommodating. The location is very convenient within a block from the beach and a 5 minute walk to the shops and resturants. Thank you for a wonderful stay and we will definitely recommend you to friends and family.

  • Liked — Friendly hosts, beautiful view and location
  • Disliked — Only 1 toilet in the 3 bedroom unit

we were extremely dissapointed to read a letter on your website titled "what a dump" and we wish to strongly dissagree with this letter.We are annual visitors to the swiss chalet and it is always an absolute pleasure to stay there. The hospitality and facilities are consistantly first class with cleanliness and presentation always faultless. We are very pleased to see the display cards indicating that the mattresses are cleaned and sanitised on a regular basis.well done swiss chalet we recommend you with utmost confidence to anyone seeking first class accommodation in paihia

Were shown the room prior to accepting as we aked for a water view if available. The room was very clean and modern . The owners Phil & Maureen were very hospitable. We were advised on what tourist trips to take (which they booked for us) and where the best value meals were - they were very friendly & kind to us. We would love to take our family back to Paihia & stay at the Swiss Chalet in the near future.
