The thing that really separates hotels from each other is not only the price, location or even reviews, such as this one.
What I can contribute is that your hosts at the Paihia Breakwater Motel are excellent.
The motel is great as well, but the big difference for us is the welcome and that feeling of total relaxation after a long day of driving.
Highly recommended.

We stayed here in December for 6 nights, the views were great, We booked a room with sea views and you could wake up to the sound of the waves. Bed was comfortable, everything nice, clean and tidy. You hear the road noise if you leave the doors open, but at night after a while traffic quietens down so you get used to it eventually. There was a beautiful garden just below us, occasionally we found bees flying in and out of the room :-) First few days we did not have any other guests in the near by garden apartments, so it was nice not to worry about guests taking a walk in the garden apartments. The owners are nice and friendly, we would definitely stay here again.

We have just spent 8 nights at this hotel and we had an excellent stay. Nicely updated apartments with an excellent view over the bay. Very good location and an easy walk into town. We watched the New Year fireworks from our balcony.

Room Tip: Pay the extra and get a room with a view.

Really enjoyed staying at Breakwater - plenty of room for the 3 of us, nice little kitchenette for quick meals. The staff were very kind and incredibly helpful - always! And the view is spectacular. Very easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. Overall, truly great place to stay, with the only downside being the road traffic. That made getting to sleep a little more difficult the first couple of nights. Would stay there again, though!

Room Tip: Back rooms may have less road noise, but you'd miss a great view.
