“Self-Contained Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2012

Great place to stay in Paihia if you're looking for self-contained accommodation at a budget price. It is a bit far from the town area which is problematic if got there via bus and lack your own transport, especially when you got bags with you or when making supermarket trips.

The apartment we stayed in was great and in very tidy and clean condition. A queen bed in the lounge area which also had comfy sofas and a dining table. Kitchen was well equipped, with microwave and cooktop, all necessary pots and pans, utensils and dishes. A separate bedroom had a comfortable double bed and we used that primarily coz I have a haunting suspicion the bed out in the lounge had bed bugs.

The manager was very easy to deal with, friendly emails from the very start when I started making enquiries. The other guests were also very friendly and seconded that.
The pool pictures were a drawcard but was sad to discover that the pool was out of use, dirty and freezing cold. But that could just have been a temporary thing given we stayed there in the middle of winter and this was a while ago now. But overall happy with my stay there

A great 2 night stay and pleasantly surprised just how comfortable it was. Had every amenity needed not to mention a great view. Was impressed with the friendliness and helpfulness of the manager. Would definitely recommend to all.

Nice place to stay. Quiet and clean. Older units, but looked like they had been done up reasonably recently. Liked the bush setting and only a 10 minute walk to the centre of town. Some welcome supplies (milk/coffee/sugar would have been nice, but not a biggie). Quick and easy dealings with Mark. Thanks.

If what you want is very reasonably priced accommodation which is basic but entirely functional and comfortable then you have found the right place. Mark is a very helpful guy, the location is close enough to the centre without being right in it, and the beds were super-comfy. Would have been better if the pool was functional and the bbq clean but never mind. When we are up that way again we would definitely use sublime again; especially given the value for money. thanks sublime.
