A small family run motel. Units are self-contained, serviced daily and are very spacious with Sky TV and queen size beds. All with balconies that get the afternoon sun. We are in central Paihia, one street back from the busy main road, about 90 metres from the restaurants and wharf.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We absolutely loved our 3 night stay here at the Austria motel located in the centre of Paihia and close to all the amenities needed. The absolute highlight was the giant balcony on which we wined and dined every evening. The owner (who was filling in for the actual owners) was absolutely wonderful to chat with and offer help and advice. I absolutely know where to stay the next time we're in Paihia !

The motel next door was fully occupied and recommended we try this one. We were shown 2 bedroom accommodation with seaviews from a balcony. Very clean and well appointed with modern bathroom and kitchen. The stairs were an effort with luggage but good excercise. Excellent service and welcome from Elaine. Would return again.
Wifi was intermittent but this is a problem for the whole area I believe.

The owner was wonderful and gave us lots of ideas of what not to miss in NZ's north. We had a great room, on the front of the units, with a large deck out front, and a small one to the side...sat out every afternoon and evening. Everything was nice and clean and we even got REAL plunger coffee, rather than instant. Close enough to everything, including the ferry to Russell. Can't recommend it any higher!

This motel is situated just behind the centre of Paihia with restaurants and shops in walking distance.
It has just a few rooms, but that makes it very comfortable. Rooms are spacious and clean, with a small kitchen.
The owners are very helpfull.

Arriving late on Friday night after informing owners, we found key in room and Milk in the fridge. A heater was provided and extra blankets also an electric blanket on the bed.
Free WiFi at this motel and also as fast as any where in NZ.
Neither my husband or myself where disappointed, we were able to sit in recliner chairs to relax and at the dinning table for meals. You could also close the kitchen door to block out light and good curtains for blocking light from the street as well whilst sleeping.
The hosts are lovely and we will be visiting again :)

Ann and Reid are excellent hosts. Very good facilities; off road parking, lots of TV channels and free fast WiFi. Location is perfect. Two minute walk to all shops, restaurants and beach. The treaty grounds are just about within walking distance or an easy five minute drive.

I can only review my own experience a this motel, and it was absolutely wonderful. We were greeted by the lovely Anne and her husband Reid, very warm and kind people who couldn't have been more helpful. The room was SO comfortable with two nice beds and two very cozy chairs for hanging out and watching a movie,and a cute little balcony. The little kitchen was nice.

We have just spent 3 nights here and really couldn't fault the place. It is situated only a couple of minutes walk to the beach and amenities and in a quiet location. The owner was very nice and friendly and helpful, we couldn't have asked for more really. If we were to return to Paihia, we would definitely stay here again.

Property has a great location and owners are friendly. Unfortunately there are 2 bedroom apartments behind the rooms. The type of people who rent these out appear to be young people who are intent on partying well past midnight. Bought this up with the owners as they have the right to request anyone to leave at any time without giving reason (as per info. given to us upon checkin)-they seemed unwilling to do anything. Property is a bit dated but good value for money.

Response from Ann S, Owner at Austria Motel
Responded 13 Feb 2018
We are sorry to hear about your experience. However the type of people who rent our 2 bedroom apartment are not young people intent on partying, they are mature people of all ages who are responsible and considerate. Very rarely do we get complaints about noise - when we do we will always act as quickly as possible to stop it.
