Ann and Reid are excellent hosts. Very good facilities; off road parking, lots of TV channels and free fast WiFi. Location is perfect. Two minute walk to all shops, restaurants and beach. The treaty grounds are just about within walking distance or an easy five minute drive.

Great location. Good service. Clean room.
We travelled to see the bay of Islands but weather was terrible but luckily we had a great place to come back to and unwind after a wet windy day. Plenty of things to do here, even in wet weather. Ferry to Russell. Waitangi treaty reserve and museum are a must!

I can only review my own experience a this motel, and it was absolutely wonderful. We were greeted by the lovely Anne and her husband Reid, very warm and kind people who couldn't have been more helpful. The room was SO comfortable with two nice beds and two very cozy chairs for hanging out and watching a movie,and a cute little balcony. The little kitchen was nice.

We have just spent 3 nights here and really couldn't fault the place. It is situated only a couple of minutes walk to the beach and amenities and in a quiet location. The owner was very nice and friendly and helpful, we couldn't have asked for more really. If we were to return to Paihia, we would definitely stay here again.

Reviewed 22 October 2017 via mobile

Property has a great location and owners are friendly. Unfortunately there are 2 bedroom apartments behind the rooms. The type of people who rent these out appear to be young people who are intent on partying well past midnight. Bought this up with the owners as they have the right to request anyone to leave at any time without giving reason (as per info. given to us upon checkin)-they seemed unwilling to do anything. Property is a bit dated but good value for money.

Ann S, Owner at Austria Motel, responded to this reviewResponded 14 February 2018

We are sorry to hear about your experience. However the type of people who rent our 2 bedroom apartment are not young people intent on partying, they are mature people of all ages who are responsible and considerate. Very rarely do we get complaints about noise - when we do we will always act as quickly as possible to stop it.
