My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon trip to Paihia. The value for money is ok, I guess. But two single beds pushed together does not make a "king" (I've got a king bed and I never once fell into a crevasse in the middle of it) and open windows and a fan next to the TV is a very creative boast of "air-conditioning". But hey, the room was well cleaned so there's that.

A group of 9 of us booked in for 5 days, we paid and booked quite a long way ahead. When we arrived, our bookings were quite muddled! We found our allotted studio rooms were very close to the main road out of Paihia to Kerikeri and extremely noisy! We had to use ear plugs to sleep. However the beds were very comfortable and servicing excellent. I guess we got what we paid for as the room rate was quite cheap. If you do stay here, go for a room at the back of the motel complex.

Needed a reasonably priced one night stop en route home. This motel is tired. Needs renovation. 3 of the 4 gas hobs didn’t work, and due to a power outage in the night, there wasn’t any hot water in the morning. Staff very pleasant, offered another apartment to use for showering. We had a 4 bed spacious apartment, no bedside lamps though. Owners need to invest in upgrading to ensure future survival. Can walk into Paihia in around 20 mins with great views along the way over the Bay of Islands.

The rooms are small and very basic but clean. We were near a very busy road so quite noisy. It's also next door to countdown supermarket so trucks pulling in from around 5am with deliveries which were also very noisy. The pool is a real disappointment. It looks nothing like the picture. It is filthy and there is a bare wire where a light has broken in the pool so it should have been closed but wasn't. There is no way I was going to risk swimming in there. If its a pool you are after don't stay here would be my advice
