Enjoyed three nights here in front room. Great outlook and location, largo room and jimmy a helpful host. A few aspects of room a little tired but overall a great stay. 5-10 mins walk to restaurant precinct, close to shopping and immediately over road to beach. Front unit can be a little noisy but didn’t bother us

Room tip: Parking could be tight in large vehicle

We are a retired couple from Australia visiting NZ for the first time. We had booked this accommodation before leaving home, so hoped we had done our research well enough.
We were not disappointed! We were warmly welcomed by reception who were very obliging with any of our questions or needs.

A very pleasant 10-minute walk along the coast and you were in the centre of Paihia – very convenient.

Our room was clean, spacious and very comfortable. The Wi-Fi speeds were unbelievable! Besides Sky TV, there was Netflix, Prime, even YouTube. We couldn’t have asked for more. Would highly recommend.

A comfortable, very clean, fully appointed suite right across from the beach. Stayed 2 nights at the best price for a sea facing room. Did a half day tour and saved parking fees by walking from the motel. The owner/manager is very friendly and courteous. Really happy with our choice and value. The real kicker the sunrise view on a good day.

We had read prior reviews and this motel rated well. We booked a downstairs sea view studio but when we arrived Jimmy offered us an upgrade to an upstairs suite with even better views. He couldn't have been more helpful and he's very friendly. The unit was serviced daily and was clean and tidy. Loved snoozing off at night listening to the waves just across the road. We had a great stay { 4 nights } and will definitely be back, next time for longer. Highly recommended.

A good location, as it is out of central (and very busy) Paihia, yet walkable into town (ferry wharf, restaurants etc). Really good-sized rooms with comfortable beds and good facilities; being able to relax on the balcony in the evening sun was a real bonus! Helpful and friendly host. Perhaps a slight lack of privacy on the balcony side.

Room tip: Sea views are limited, so if that's what you want.......but it may be noisier!
