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.

Really a great place where we could feel like home. The rooms are very nice, spacious and comfortable. The hosts really care about the details and that’s something you can see everywhere. Parking is easy and there is a restaurant, a takeaway and a supermarket directly on the other side of the street. The lodge has a huge BBQ space with two nice grills.

Beautifully kept property with nicely appointed and immaculately clean units. Loved my 2 night stay and would have loved to stay longer. The units are spacious with cosy furnishings and are really well equipped for self-catering, and the location is super convenient to the little collection of shops and cafes in Pauanui. The owners were very nice and even kindly gave me a jumpstart for my car when the battery went flat!

Pauanui Pines is most definitely pet friendly and gets the big thumbs up from our pooch and family. Local walks are fabulous, peaceful and safe: dogs can be walked around most of Pauanui's beach and harbour trails, shops, cafes and bars. Dogs are welcome in the units too, which are warm, very clean and homely. The dog thought the harbour and beach swimming were great too - and we enjoyed the motel spa 😄

We had a double room, which in effect was 2 units with an interconnecting door, so 2 bathrooms, a full kitchen and a kitchenette. Was super impressed by cleanliness of the place. For a motel, it had some of the better decor you can see in NZ. Exceptionally close to the small shopping centre in Pauanui, so if you want a night at the pub, this is the place to stay!

We found Carole and Simon very welcoming and always friendly and helpful. We commended them on how they have improved the Pauanui Pines facilities and amenities in the time they have run it. We really enjoyed our stay and will return again and again.

The unit is very clean, well serviced and the owners have updated and improved the unit furniture and facilities enormously. Bed was very comfortable and the information booklet helpful.

We visited for a wedding so spent very little time at the accommodation. It was exceptionally clean and the bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped with cooking utensils and crockery etc. The accommodation was perfect for us to spend a night. We unfortunately didn't have time to check out the pool, spa and other amenities on site. Staff were friendly and welcoming.

Very welcoming motel. Room comfortable with everything we needed. Happy to lend out umbrellas and spades for use at beaches etc. kitchenette well equipped. If the weather had been better we would have used more of their facilities. Very short walk to restaurants and supermarket
WiFi signal could be better, but was enough for emails etc.
