Friendly and helpful reception. Rooms very old and tired. Everything was clean but still had an odour. Buy your own water do not drink tap water even if boiled. Conveniently located for all shopping, beachfront and tours.

Okay, we didn't stay here and it's a long story. We were lost! We arrived for a wedding but left the address of where we were staying 500 kms away! Thought that they had a vacancy (had to stay somewhere) but no, fully booked. Told them our story and No Problems they said, we will find the place for you. Big relief for us. And they found they place where we were supposed to stay. So this place, the people here we give our highest recommendation ever! Words cannot describe our feelings of relief! Our 4 day stay was back on.

A short walk from the centre of Paihia. This isn't a top class Motel but it's clean, tidy and very reasonable price for the area. It's airy and the amenities are just as you would wish. I particularly liked all the matching crockery, it may sound silly but one Motel we stayed in had a right mismatch of stuff and only one bowl for cereal! It just added that little bit extra to make you feel at home. We would definitely stay there again.

We enjoyed a two night stay at this property! The host was very friendly and helpful... walking distance to the wharf, stores, restaurants, bars. we rented a small studio and it was perfect! great value to a popular destination spot for locals

Room Tip: we had a main floor room, and it was convenient to get luggage into the room

Everything you will need for your time in Paihia! Great welcome, brilliant local knowledge of restaurants and things to do and always available! Located centrally and right next to a great kids play area! Clean, modern rooms, good wifi, free sky tv and a room for all budgets and group sizes! Thank you Rochine, Tony and family for everything!

Hi,

Thank you for your nice review, we pride ourselves on our local knowledge, especially the restaurants, we have eaten at every one.... more than once!

The kids area is a bonus, with the trampoline out the back and the playgrounds and kids bike/scooter park next door, it makes it easy for adults to relax while kids are entertained.

Thanks again,

Rochine
