We spent two pleasant nights at the Pines Motor Lodge in Pauanui and enjoyed our stay. The proprietor Barry was very friendly and helpful. He provided us even with beach towels and a shovel for the hot water beach. If we come back to to New Zealand, we definitely stop by at the Pines Motor Lodge again!

We received a very personal welcome from the owner on arrival. The room was spacious, clean, bright and airy (lots of windows which open) and contained every amenity and convenience one could imagine. The bed was comfortable, with quality pillows and duvet cover. The location is superb with mountain and estuary views. Several good restaurants are within easy walking distance.

My husband booked us into Pauanui Pines for a surprise weekend away for my birthday.
The motel was easy to fine and close to the shopping centre, our room was welcoming, clean, and comfortable and Barry and Robyn were warm and friendly and gave us tips and advice on what we could do in the area.
The overall theme for our weekend was "Rest and Relaxation" and we defiantly got that staying here.
I would stay here again and I would recommend it to my friends and family :)

Barry the proprietor was very helpful from the moment we stepped in the door. We were two families travelling together with a teenage boy each and had booked two rooms but Barry gave us a spare room for the boys to sleep in. He was also very helpful with guiding us with what to do around the area and giving directions with how to get to our next destination.

Hello Brett
Thank you for your kind comments. Long legged young men need a lot of space, I used to one myself, so it was a pleasure giving thier own unit.
We do take a pride in being useful and informative. Most of our gueste are from overseas like you and it is only fair to give you all good directions.
We trust the rest of your holiday was a great success.
Regards
Barry

This very cosy and comfortable cottage was situated walking distance to beach, park and shops. The advice on attractions and directions to these was offered generously and with attentiveness. We loved our two nights stay.

The first thing we noticed was a warm welcome. The rooms were cabin like and well appointed with a really comfortable bed. The room was very clean, tidy and functional with everything we needed. We really liked the flexible layout of the rooms. The lodge provided a swimming pool and BBQ . The lodge is centrally located to all services and shops. The scenery was spectacular and provided a good base for exploring the peninsula. The owner could not have been more helpful and was a great source of information for both Pauanui and the peninsula - nothing was too much trouble. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

By chance last minute find for a nights stay- really good vibe and accommodation- onsite swiming pool and use of bbq's- great views of landings of small planes (but still very quiet) and surroundings hills - could not find fault with facilities and great location- only comment would be fans for the rooms would be good though for those sticky summer nights

You will be pleased to hear that all the units now have a good fan to stir the summer night air, and day time too, of course.
