We had a seaview apartment and could make use of the outside table for breakfast. Ideally situated. You can access both pier and downtown shopping stores within some minutes of walking. Room was well equipped, clean and spacious.

Nice motel in excellent location with friendly helpful staff. Quiet and comfortable. A pizza place down the road did nice breakfasts otherwise Paihia has a poor choice of restaurants, either junk food or pretentious nonsense. We chose to eat whilst out on trips.

Recently stayed 2 nights in a 1 bedroom suite. Lovely water view, clean and comfortable with plenty of space for a couple. Check in was simple with friendly service. A very short walk to Paihia shops, wharf, ferry etc. Traffic was too noisy to leave...More

We stayed 4 nights. Great staff, had organised for us to check in late. Can get quite noisy with traffic, but you have a great view overlooking the water. Could maybe add a fan in the bedroom. Big bathroom, great shower. Everything was clean. Thanks...More

We were very pleased with the location, cleanliness and spaciousness of the Breakwater Motel. We would certainly recommend it to other travellers. The view of the bay is lovely. The owners were very pleasant and helpful.
