Stayed in a waterfront suite and it was perfect - thank you. Beautifully clean, modern, comfortable and the views from these rooms are spectacular. Location is ideal - central and so close to wharf. Owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. We can't wait to return.

I can't recommend the Breakwater highly enough. Full marks for location (right on the water, stunning views, close to restaurants/bus/ferry), sleep quality (good mattress, linens, room darkness and temperature control), shower (hot and decent pressure), amenities (great kitchen, coffee supplies, dining table, couch and chairs etc), room decor and comfort, and friendly customer service. I was especially impressed by Lyn as she went above and beyond to ensure I was taken care of. I would absolutely stay at the Breakwater again, the next time I'm in the area. Thank you Lyn!

Room Tip: Waterfront rooms are well worth it.

I was in Paihia in business and stopped here for 1 night. Ken (the owner) was very helpful and friendly and booked me into a waterfront suite. The suite itself was extremely clean and well equipped and very comfortable. It was great to have heating as well as heated floors in the kitchen and bathroom. Only a very short walk to the shops etc and I would absolutely stay here again. Very impressed.
