Review of Austria Motel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 8 Oct 2017via mobile
My only regret is not staying longer!

The Austria Hotel is warm and welcoming.
It is centrally located and within a 5 minute walk to the wharf, supermarket and bus stop.

The owners are lovely and helpful.

It is quiet, two streets back from the beach.

While it isn't modern in terms of the decor, it's cosy and homey and an ideal place to stay.

I wouldn't hesitate to stay here in the future.

Booked for 4 nights initially (2-bed apartment) and ended up booking a further 3 nights (studio room). So friendly and helpful.
Great location, on road behind the main harbour side road, so it's a bit quieter. Reasonable views of the Bay of Islands from apartment, and studio has nice balcony area too, with side-on view.
Parking easy, laundry facilities useful! Mid-range accommodation that is well run and well thought out, and you just need to ask if you need something.
Easy to walk to all that Paihia has to offer, and Waitaingi is close by. Great base from which to explore Bay of Islands.

Room tip: 2-bed apartment is very spacious and more private. Up 2 floors though. Studio rooms are very comfy and well-equipped, on first floor.

The room was very spacious and clean with a large deck to sit in the sun. They were very friendly owners and very helpful. Also the best laundry facilities we have found in New Zealand. The unit was self contained with a very clean kitchenette.

Last week had a four day visit with a friend to this budget motel.
On arrival we were greeted by a lovely lady not sure if it was the owner . She even helped to take our bags up the stairs ( we didn't ask for assistance) came back with milk and local information of the area.
Day 3 my friend was sick and she even offered to go to the supermarket and chemist for her.
The room was a studio had everything we needed comfortable beds and reclining chairs.
Great location just a street back from the water five mins walk to most things and also quiet at night.
Great value for money and would certainly return here.

We stayed 3 nights in Austria Motel. The owners are very friendly people. The room was big and comfy, but a bit old and not to clean. We had to kill some big spiders and had to remove several spider webs from the ceiling. Yes, it was the time of the year for spiders. I talked to the owner and she promised to spray the room at a moment that no guests were staying in it.. It was nice to have a small balcony with table and chairs. Location is excellent, very close to the harbour, the busstop, a supermarket and restaurants. We even walked from the motel to the Haruru falls. We took pictures of plants and birds that we did not know, and the owner told us the names and showed us more pictures on the internet and that was nice.
