My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights while visiting the bay of islands and it was great. We had the smallest room however didn't struggle for space. Our room didn't have a cooker however, only hobs, which wasn't a huge problem but did limit our meal choices slightly. The staff are helpful and the rooms are cleaned daily....

Good value accommodation a few minutes walk from the centre of Paihia. This is a small family run motel with parking right outside your unit. There is a small patio area with seating at the back of each unit and a guest laundry and BBQ area. Free wifi.

We had a very pleasant week long stay at the Tui. Our children enjoyed their 'holiday home' and loved playing on the trampoline and the playground at the adjacent Paihia School. The location was great - just a short walk to town. Everything we needed in the kitchen was provided, the beds comfortable, wi-fi reception excellent and the shower had...

The motel is in a good location in Paihia, only a few minutes walk from the seafront (but so is everything). The motel looks a little tired, my unit had some unusual renovation features (see picture). No A/C, but the building itself is cool inside and windows can be opened. WiFi is included, but was very unreliable in my unit....

We just spent three nights here and we loved Paihia. The hotel offers great space and convenience for the price but it is a little dated. That being said, the owner Rochine couldn't have been any nicer and more accommodating. We would stay here again for the location, space and price.
