You can't beat the location of the Breakwater Motel. It's close (walking distance) to local shops and restaurants and is literally on the waterfront offering spectacular views of the pacific from the rooms, garden and terrace. The suites have water-facing gardens that are really well kept and quite pretty. The suite was very clean and comfortable, with good (but basic) facilities. Convenient parking. Will stay here again without a doubt.

Hi ssc923

Thank you so much for your wonderful review of your stay in a Waterfront Suite. Our location is an absolute bonus offering the amazing ocean views plus just a short flat walk to town. All our Waterfront and Seaview suites have now been fitted with double glazed floor to ceiling sliding doors to enhance your stay.

Kind Regards
Lyn

We enjoyed our warm accommodation unit offering good facilities and comfort. Excellent location for accessing Pahia restaurants, shops, and access to ferries. Private parking and very good free wifi access. Our hosts were helpful with recommendations and information. Pleasing stay.

Very clean and updated! Lovely views of the water in the Bay of Islands. Owners are on site and very friendly and helpful. Short walk to all the action in Paihia. Rooms are very roomy with plenty of space even if you are pulling out the sofa bed. Highly recommend! Wish we could stay longer!

Centrally located near restaurants, shops and grocery store. We walked down to these with ease. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. We noticed they had laundry access. We loved that our room was clean, modern and had air-conditioning. I made use of the kitchen to cook myself a meal. We had a relaxing and comfortable night after a long day of riding. We were able to park our bike right outside our room.

Great views and facilities. Wonderfully heated for our whole stay. Easy walking distance to shops and restaurants . Owners very helpful with late check in and advice on places to visit. Would definitely recommend a stay here.
