lasting impression of the hotel and the lady host !!.. she's bubbly, personalized service, friendly and helpful on my visit. the room is big and cosy.. i wish i spend more days in Paihia. The location is central enough but away from the centre of town.

Very clean, tidy and comfortable plus being nice and close to the bars and restaurants of Paihia. Love the modern touches to the 1960's fixtures. Staff friendly and helpful. Above all excellent value for money in what can be an expensive place to stay. Will come again.

Hello. Thank you for the nice comments. We are situated just minutes from Paiha Township and Paihia Wharf where all the cruises and tours depart. The Cape Reinga/90 mile beach Tour will pick up from our door. Paihia is the ideal location to see the Far North and is a busy little seaside town with unique shops and restaurants.

very good location, few minute walk to the water front. room is clean and nice. upon check in, owner advised me there is the play ground behind, I found that is the big boon to me as my two boys can have some extra things to do.

The motel is 5 minute walk from the wharf, very convenient. The room was fairly old and really needs renovating. When I first checked in, I realised there were lots of ants in the kitchen. The owner came in and sprayed the ants. Seriously the cleaner didn't do his/her job properly. Despite that, it was an ok stay for one...

We found this hotel to be quiet, a good size, clean easy walking distance to eateries and many shops and owners were very helpful with anything we needed. They even helped us to book a bus tour for the day, guests at motel get a discount on tours. Would stay again.

We had the pleasant surprise to see our booking to be upgraded to a slightly bigger room, with a separate room for our kid. The kitchenette was effective with all basic ustensils provided; dishes were washed every day when we were out which was a nice surprise as well. The reception offered us a set of brochures fitting our wants...

This motel is only a couple of hundred meters from the Paihia centre in a handy and quiet location. We had a family suite and it was perfect for our needs, very clean and comfortable beds.
