Pauanui PML offers great chalets. Diningroom with tv and heater, shower, bedroom with large beds and Kichinette. Tennis court and pool. Very kindly and helpful staff. Chalets are clean and well maintained. Ask for a free shovel if you go to Hot Water Beach! Marvellous place to stay on 3 min from shopping center and 12 to beach.

What a great motel! Spotlessly clean and comfortable but the best thing was peace and quiet! As a light sleeper I value silence and darkness. Have a separate bedroom really makes a difference and this motel has it. Very friendly staff too, plus free laundry with dryer really helped us ☺

One of the best motels we have stayed in anywhere! Like private chalets, very quiet, well equipped and handily located a couple of minutes walk to local shops, restaurants and facilities. Guest laundry on site. Swimming pool, tennis court, guest BBQ, and free use of bicycles also available. Gary and Jan are perfect hosts, very welcoming and extremely helpful.

They were very friendly and reassured us that they'd still be around if we arrived after reception closed at 8 (although in the event we arrived just in time). The cabin was comfortable with a spacious living area, kitchenette and...

I stayed here on two occasions for practical rather than tourist reasons and the motel was a perfect base for me. Clean, comfortable, quite modern and with everything I required (no oven but I wouldn’t have used one anyway). Stay was in winter so I didn’t even look at pool (but heating was very good), and the place was quiet...

Pauanui Pines Motor Lodge made us feel like we were family. We enjoyed staying at the Pauanui Pines. We had a fantastic trip and this location added to the great travel experience. The service was great. It is family run and just a nice homey atmosphere. Highly recommend this location.

We were expecting a hotel and what a wonderful surprise this turned out to be. The units were excellent , comfortable and extremely clean. Gary was very helpful explaining how the Barbecue worked and I was surprised that you didn't have to clean it after you used it. Easy walk to the shops and the beach on the other side...
