Ash Grove Motel
Ranked #25 of 43 Hotels in Paihia
Reviewed 10 January 2013

Really clean place with everything included that you could ever want. Busy road at the front of the unit, but it did not affect our stay.

Premises was located out of town, but only 5 mins in the car to Paihia.

The decor was a little dated, such as the touch lamps and the bedspread. The frying pan in our room looked like it lost its non-stick coating several years back and we did not use it because of this.

We paid $165 per night for 6 nights which I thought was pretty steep.

Fabulous welcome from Carol and Stuart on our arrival for our two nights stay. Muffins and a bottle of milk for our cuppa. Our room was superb, with everything included - Hob, microwave and fridge; TV and DVD; large double bed, comfortable chairs, and desk. Ouside in the garden was a table and chairs, barbeque and a swimming pool. Other facilities were free Wifi, laundry, car parking right outside the room, and a superb free Spa Pool, in which we indulged. In fact, we wanted for nothing! This was indeed the best motel/hotel that we stayed in throughout New Zealand. Fantastic value for money. Highly recommended and many thanks to Carol and Stuart.

We couldn't ask for better, this place rocks. BBQ, pool, hot pool, nice room and nice staff.
We had an amazing day/ night in this place.
We decided to have a nice BBQ instead of spending a lot at the restaurants and it truly worth it.

Even here in the winter, it was a lovely place to stay. We arrived to homemade muffins for afternoon tea. Complimentary Continental breakfast supplied, and a well fitted out kitchen for our own use. More than enough room for five adults. Swimming pool surrounded by gardens and a spa bath. Thank you to Carol and Stuart, we look forward to coming back and will recommend your motel to friends

Quiet location just out of Paihia, we had an immaculate suite looking out to the pool and gardens. Very engaging and helpful owners made our stay enjoyable.

The first Motel we stayed in ,in our six week tour of New Zealand. What a stunner. A separate cottage all to ourselves. There was a pool , spa bath and also the much needed laundry room .
The accommodation was very clean and met highly with our expectations.
A great place to stay if you want to tour The Bay of Islands. Many thanks to Carol and Stuart

Room Tip: Ask for the separate cottage

Together with my wife and one of our kids we spend 3 sunny days here. A beautiful small motel with spa, pool, cosy garden and free Internet. The hosts were very helpful.
Wish list: more TV channels that actually works.
