We stayed here for a night with the in laws and were lucky enough to secure side by side rooms with our own shared balcony. The hotel is only a very short walk to the beach and the main street of Paihia so we had slight ocean views from our balcony. Everything you could need is walking distance from the hotel including bars, restaurants, cafes, supermarket, pharmacy and tourist attractions. We had one bedroom apartments which were very generously sized and sparkling clean. It was hot summer weather when we stayed but the pedestal fans in the wardrobe were more than sufficient for keeping us cool. The check in and check out process was very quick and efficient with friendly helpful service. We loved our stay at the Bounty Hotel and can’t believe the value for money we received. We can’t wait to return! …
Great place to stay, lovely host and good prices. Close to the beach and shops , will definitely be back accommodation had everything you need the bed was comfortable and the kitchenette was great. I can recommend staying there
I challenge you to find a better deal in Paihia for your accomodation if you want to save money. Even the backpackers down the road was more expensive so we stayed here. Paul's place is 5 minutes from Countdown and the wharf with the restaurants. Asked for second floor and that's what we got. As previous reviewers mentioned the wood does make noises on occasion but this didn't bother us too much. WiFi was great, room was cleaned daily and I had a lot of extra $ to spend on dining out, tours etc. Room wasn't brand new, you can pay $300 a night down the road if that's what you want, but there's no guarantee the experience would be any better.
Had a poor experience with this place. We changed the date for our bookings to be pushed out one day. several months before we were due to travel. Admittedly I didn't follow this up as we had spoken on the phone and in the end, the motel couldn't accommodate us the day before our booking, which I understand. However the tone of the email and phone communication implied we were at fault and the continued confusion over whether there was or was not space for us on the revised dates was frustrating.
The rooms are very spacious and clean. Kitchen has the basic utensils and crockery and room was serviced daily. I always read many reviews prior to booking but MY WORD nobody mentioned the structural noises and cracking sounds that keeps you awake at night. These are loud cracks due and sometimes so loud that it will wake you up
