We booked this as it looked to be good value for money and close to town. We also really liked how honest the room advertisement was, as we booked the 'petite studio' so we knew to expect a small room and not to take lots of luggage (thanks to the honest advertising). When we arrived we were blown away by the friendly and warm welcoming. Everyone that worked here was SO LOVELY and kind to us, it really made for an awesome experience. We even got upgraded to a much larger room for our 3 night stay which was incredibly generous! Our room felt very clean, the bed was comfortable and it was really well equipped. Every part of this motel demonstrates the passion the wonderful owners have for their region and trade. We have stayed a lot of places this summer and because of the wonderful humans here, Edelweiss was definitely our favourite :)

Although older these motels are scrupulously clean and well appointed. Reasonably quiet location just up the road from the waterfront, eateries etc. Welcoming proprietor and very helpful. Would definitely stay here again...in fact we added an extra night.

We stayed two nights at the Edelweiss Motel, I can’t express how pleased I was when I walked into our room and it was spotlessly clean and had a lovely fresh fragrance. The staff at the check in desk were excellent to deal with, and while this isn’t the newest motel in Paihia I would go back and stay again. The pool was clean and didn’t smell of chlorine and the water temp was good for the time of year.
