“OK for 1-2 nights”
Reviewed 23 January 2010

Pros:
- The location is overall pretty good: a short (flat) walk to the center of town
- The rooms are clean and spacious
- Pool and sauna
- Our room was fairly quiet on the first night; on the second, we could hear some noise from the backpackers, but it wasn't too loud. Not sure what it would be like in other rooms.
- Free off-street parking

Cons:
- Staff not very friendly (unusual in our experience so far in New Zealand)
- Seemed expensive for what it is
- In the backpacker part of town, so lots of bars (one advertising nightly karaoke and wet T shirt contests), no good restaurant options

Overall, it felt like a generic motel without the character and warmth that we've found in most other accommodations in NZ.

The room was dark and the furniture was old. We had a big room, but is was not clean. Also the little swimmingpool and jaccuzi were not clean. A plaster was floating in the pool for two days, so it was not cleaned every day.... Of course we didn't swim.
On our first night we had diner at the hotelrestaurant. The place was empty, but we had made a reservation, so we give it a shot. Unfortunately the mussels were very bad and also the bread was old and not good. The next day we had diner at "Only Seafood" in Paihia and that was very good!!! So please don't eat in the hotelrestaurant, there are better places to go in Paihia.

We stayed in the standard room and thought it was excellent value for money. It was very spacious and very clean. Of note, was the exceptionally friendly and accomodating staff who went out of their way to make our stay a pleasant one. I would happily go back for another visit.

We stayed here for 3 nights in March and upon checking in we were given a free upgrade to a premiere room. The resort hotel was in a good location for a peaceful nights sleep and the room was very spacious with all that you expect to have in a hotel room. After staying in some really nice modern places in New Zealand in comparison, I would have to say that this place seemed a tad dated and would benefit from a bit of a refurb.

We arrived from Sydney via Auckland without some luggage and Karen was absolutely brilliant in chasing it up on our behalf so that it was delivered within hours of our arrival in Paihia. You could not wish for better service.

The hotel was excellent value.

Its only disadvantage was having to cross an open area between our room and the restaurant.

We enjoyed our stay very much. All the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful with tips on where to eat and what to do. The room we had was spacious, not luxurious, but nice.

It is a very nice little hotel with very helpful and friendly staff. It's not luxurious, but it does not pretend to be, but it is good value for money.

  • Liked — the helpful reception staff
  • Disliked — the pattern of the blankets is not very nice ;-)
