Guest reviews

  • Family with children

    The room was very spacious and clean.

    The room was very old. For the money there were things missing like, sky television, an iron in your room. The pool was not really in a fit state to use and even though a view was mentioned our family room looked out towards the car park. We only stayed two nights of our three nights booked as I could not watch the rugby as there was no sky tv. We ended up staying at another motel that was a similar price was brand new with everything we needed with a view of the bay. I will not be recommending this motel to anybody.

  • Family with children

    The rooms were very clean and neat, and well supplied with towls, crockery etc.

    It was a very basic and dated room.

  • Group of friends

    Accommodation was comfortable, clean and functional. The appartment was well equipped and better than many I have stayed in.

    Hotel was not on the seafront (about 100 yards away) and rooms did not have a sea view.

  • Group of friends

    Service and sweet smiles from stuff(Owner), thats the most important thing in trip,feels warm as home. and everything else was way above standards.

    not really

  • Single

    Free, genuinely high-speed wi-fi (tested as 12Mbps download), despite its being advertised as attracting an extra charge. - Apparently, this charge applies only to customers staying for just one night. As I was staying for ten, I got it free but two nights would have been sufficient. Very friendly and helpful staff and, being a husband and wife joint venture, you always got to talk with the top person! The staff advised upon and arranged all my excursions and cruises whilst I was in Paihia.

    The fast, free wi-fi came in bundles of 50Mb, after which you had to "begin again" with a new access code. So was fine for surfing the net and email, but not so good for applications such as Skype or which gobble up the megabytes.

  • Couple

    Good location right near to the beach, decent size and well equiped room. Pretty decent budget accomodation.

    The cleanliness was only let down by a couple of pubic hairs on the towels. The room is quite bright with outside lights staying on all night. We understand the need for security but the glass doors have no blinds or curtains. The bed was uncomfortable.

  • Older travelers

    Owners are a nice obliging couple, the facilities were clean and comfortable, handy location and good vale for money.

  • Family with children

    The helpfulness and friendliness of hosts

    NOticed that a few other motels in the area had a spa pool. While this is not essential it would have been nice to have had the option of as the summer holiday we booked was really wet and cold weatherwise.

  • Family with children

    Nothing. Owner was a grumpy bloke and I will never go back there. Would not recommend it to others. Quite the most unfriendly place we stayed in new zealand

  • Older travelers

    Very helpful staff, nice room with small garden/play ground.

    We found ants on the dinning table.

  • Group of friends

    The room was clean and tidy

    The staff were incredibly rude. I stayed there for my sisters wedding which was next door at the Scenic Hotel. The staff were yelled at my mum when she tried to book me into the room (under my name as I was staying there, plus one other) while I was out doing bridal photos for the wedding. The next morning (before checkout) the manager knocked once and let himself in and forced me and a friend out of the room yelling and abusing I was not the correct person for the room. My mum came over to help out and they also abused her and were very disrespectful. I would never go to this motel again!

  • Older travelers

    It is a lovely clean well maintained Motel run by a truly wonderful couple

    No sky tv

  • Older travelers

    It was very clean and light. It had all the facilities it promised. It is reasonably located to town.

    Smell of mildew in the cupboards under the kitchen sink. The price must have risen for Waitangi days because I think it was overpriced for its location and decor.

  • Older travelers

    friendly manager,

    TV was not up to scratch.Most of the channels had very poor reception.Suggest either freeview or sky to bring it into this century.Digital is mandatory soon so i guess this will be solved.Also flat screen and a bit bigger.That was the only problem.

  • Family with children

    Good sized accommodation at a reasonable price in a great location.
