    We had a 4 night say in the motel part of this establishment which was excellent in all respects. Rooms were of a reasonable size and well fitted out. Due to its location being a short drive out of Paihia, sleep quality was high and the whole site was very quite.
    Prices were within the average of this part of North NZ.
    We can highly recommend either the motel or the camp site to all travellers.

    Room Tip: All rooms appeared quite

    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
