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.

Great place to stay in Paihia if you're looking for self-contained accommodation at a budget price. It is a bit far from the town area which is problematic if got there via bus and lack your own transport, especially when you got bags with you or when making supermarket trips.

The apartment we stayed in was great and in very tidy and clean condition. A queen bed in the lounge area which also had comfy sofas and a dining table. Kitchen was well equipped, with microwave and cooktop, all necessary pots and pans, utensils and dishes. A separate bedroom had a comfortable double bed and we used that primarily coz I have a haunting suspicion the bed out in the lounge had bed bugs.

The manager was very easy to deal with, friendly emails from the very start when I started making enquiries. The other guests were also very friendly and seconded that.
The pool pictures were a drawcard but was sad to discover that the pool was out of use, dirty and freezing cold. But that could just have been a temporary thing given we stayed there in the middle of winter and this was a while ago now. But overall happy with my stay there

Our family really enjoyed staying at Sublime Apartments for 2 days during New Year. My two little sons loved to play water guns at the swimming pool, we liked to go for a walk to the town after dinner, very nice place to stay, Mark was very friendly and always put a great smile on his face, thanks for upgrading us to a high view one, we enjoyed the beautiful views, we would like stay again next time.

We booked this on the faith of the photos and description. We are not fussy travellers but simply look for safe and clean. This place was neither. The bed covers were stained and the sliding main door was broken with a very low end (not installed properly) temporary fix. I did not feel as though our belongings would be safe at all. The on sight manager was very accommodating and did his best however the units are individually owned and you get what you get. Our unit was clearly unacceptable. For the same 200$ per night we found a much better option on the waterfront that suited our clean and safe needs.

Nice place to stay. Quiet and clean. Older units, but looked like they had been done up reasonably recently. Liked the bush setting and only a 10 minute walk to the centre of town. Some welcome supplies (milk/coffee/sugar would have been nice, but not a biggie). Quick and easy dealings with Mark. Thanks.

If what you want is very reasonably priced accommodation which is basic but entirely functional and comfortable then you have found the right place. Mark is a very helpful guy, the location is close enough to the centre without being right in it, and the beds were super-comfy. Would have been better if the pool was functional and the bbq clean but never mind. When we are up that way again we would definitely use sublime again; especially given the value for money. thanks sublime.

I LOVED how quiet it was here, and it was great to have the heated swimming pool right there for the kids! Friendly staff. Generally enjoyed our stay.

Definitely a DIY sort of place though - I quite like that but a couple of times I wanted some help and nobody was answering at the desk. Also, would be nice to tell us that no shampoo is supplied! We travelled earlier in the year and both budget places provided shampoo.

Not new and not sparkly clean either - other minor problem was with only the very basic stall shower in the bathroom it was a bit hard to bathe the kids.
