This is a nice motel, very centrally located in Paihia, close to the beach. The staff helped us check in late at night without any issues. They even left a bottle of milk for us, which was a very thoughtful touch.

The tiny so called kitchenette of studio room.
do you have a hot tub? Is that what you mean by spa pool?
They have a large spa pool beside the pool. Im pretty sure in NZ our Spas are what you call hot tubs. It heats its own water, has chlorine in it and bubbles up and can seat a few people, try googling spa pool nz and see what images come up. Their swimming pool is also heated. Hope this helps.
