A lovely, friendly welcome from the owners set the tone for an enjoyable, though brief, stay. We had a room with a view of the water and the falls. The room was clean and generally of a better standard than you might expect from a budget motel. Nothing to fault.
Do take their kayaks out on the water if you fancy that sort of thing, as we made the mistake of booking in advance and paying silly money to do the same thing down in Paihia! Owners still very kindly saved us a taxi and drove us down to Paihia to do it. Ouch!

We stayed in the motel part of it and it suited our needs very well for a family of six.The host was most helpful with suggestions of what to see and good beaches.
There just a couple of annoying things.The kitchen didnt have windows we could open and no extractor fun and the smoke alarm kept going off when we cooked breakfast and the louvres in the bathroom could do with a good clean,but beside that,we enjoyed our stay.Internet is not great.

This is a beautiful place for families with a nice pool, cool playground and good room layout. The only thing hand it really shouldn’t discourage you from using it) is this wifi. Dial up is faster! Otherwise great place, not far from the city centre and the hosts are very friendly and informative.

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.
