Nice clean Motel with great views of the falls. Nice being just outside of Paihia. The man at reception was very friendly also. Kitchen was well equipped. Only downside was parking at the Motel gets abit full but we did come at a very busy period of the year. Would definitely stay again.

Paihia itself is a bit crowded and touristy for my taste. The Falls Motel, is just a ten minute drive outside the town, so clear of the hustle and bustle. Perfectly adequate rooms, great couple running the place, and a little kitchenette.

Views of the nearby Haruru Falls are excellent and watching passing paddle boarders, canoeists and boaters is fascinating. The sites are more than ample in size and the nearby ablutions block is clean and tidy. There is a small pool serving the motel that campsite guests can use and the free WiFi is effective. The management are friendly and welcoming.

We were originally heading next door to Haruru resort but chose this place instead and so glad we did. $18 pp non powered. Everything was great from the friendly and helpful guys on reception to the amenities and of course the view! Got a van spot with front row view of the beautiful falls. The setting is so lovely and peaceful. Great use of the laundry room, charging points, kitchen and wifi. Bathroom clean, the showers fluctuate in temperature a bit but they do warn you of that and it’s ok if no one else is in there

BEST CAMPSITE AT THE BAY OF ISLANDS. Arriving into the Bay of Islands in our motorhome, we had our mind sets that we had to be on the water, as you do here! We arrived into Russell (cute town!) and then got the car ferry from Opua to Paihia. The campsites around Paihia were not great, so we took a punt on the Falls Campground; wow we were pleased we did. The views here are amazing; campsite looks directly at Haruru falls. The grounds man and reception were fabulous. If you score the front sites great, however don’t be put off if you don’t.; we didn’t and we loved the site we got as all sites really have uninterrupted views. The bathrooms were very clean and the laundry, which I used worked really well. Cost was the cheapest we had to date. We would have stayed here another night, however time was not on our side. TIP: take the walk from the campsite to the falls and you can even continue to the Waitangi reserve if you have a few hours up your sleeve. Would stay here again in a heart beat.
