We booked a couple of 2 bedroom apartments for our family trip over the Easter long weekend and had a very comfortable stay. Very friendly and helpful - gave us some great tips for places to go which was very much appreciated.

Stayed 5 years ago in one of 2nd floor room. This year lower floor as more of us... its nice but not luxury. Nice and quiet and near everything you need. Easy walk to town and beach! Bathroom needed some updating. Large but not great!

Booked ahead & Penny was there to make sure we got the perfect room. Admiral’s View is a real gem in this tourist City. Quiet side street but so close to the beach, main town & restaurants. Clean, comfortable with in room kitchen. We had a downstairs under the residence but never heard them above. Penny & Craig are there to help you with loads of information if needed. Thank you for a great stay.

Thank you for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to meet you both and we are glad you enjoyed your stay! Our garden rooms are great if you don't mind the smaller room and very easy on the budget.

The Motel is just a 5 minute walk from the centre of town and therefore conveniently positioned. When arriving by car I would recommend entering Bedggood Close, not MacMurray Road into your SatNav so as to avoid driving round in circles. It is true that there is a partial view of the sea, but it is rather distant so don’t expect the sea to be on your doorstep. The owners are friendly and helpful and the facilities are fine, if some of them are perhaps a little ‘wing and a prayer ‘ at times. All in all the motel is good value for money but we might seek somewhere along the front if we were to return to Paihia.

Thank you very much for your comments. We are set back from the main road and our view is across the village to the sea. The benefit is we are in a quiet location away from the busy state highway that runs along the front of Paihia.

The hosts at this hotel were very helpful when our flight back to Auckland was cancelled due to bad weather. As for the room, it was very large and spacious with kitchenette area which we only used once to make tea. The property is situated close to restaurants so we ate out. It has air conditioning which we did use, 1 double bed and a single bed. Very comfy so no complaints there. Flat screen tv with sky which my husband loved as he could keep up to date with the cricket. Balcony area as we were on the top floor with a partial sea view. The other rooms may have offered a full sea view. Big bathroom with shower, no bath, twin sinks. Filtered water tap although water is safe from the tap in NZ. Guest laundry is also available which I took advantage of and is cheap and easy to use.

Room Tip: Higher floors for the views
