“Ideal location”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

I would reiterate the comments of other reviewers for this hotel. It was perfectly situated, very clean and staff were very helpful. The rooms were of a good size, very clean and with aircon - which was needed as it was very hot whilst we were there. Would recommend this hotel for a stay in Paihia, within easy walking distance of all attractions. Would definitely return for a longer stay there.

Great hotel with good facilities. Very neat and clean hotel. It was great to see that the hotel is located near the beach and restaurants. Located just opposite the beach. The location of the hotel was great for our travels. The hotel is also located just 4 minutes away from waitangi treaty grounds. Highly recommended.

This hotel is very centrally situated, right opposite the road from the waterfront and within a minute's walk from the village where the shops and restaurants are. We had a standard double room and our rate did not include breakfast, so I am unable to comment on breakfast. The room was immaculately clean - with two double beds, which gave a good night's sleep. The bathroom had a separate loo and washbasin, with a shower and bath. Fresh towels were available for the spa-pool- which was free to use in half hour slots, in the afternoon and evening. There is also a heated outdoor pool, but it was not warm enough for me to use. Tea and coffee making facilities were good - plunger and ground coffee were included. The reception staff are helpful and friendly.
I would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: If you want to maximise the spectacular views, request and ocean-facing suite.

This motel is situated on the Waterfront only 2 mins walk to the boat trip terminal. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated with aircon. I had breakfast once through choice and it was excellent. Reception and bar staff were all very good and chatty. The location is excellent as it is also only 2 minutes walk to the town but without any noise.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask if you're getting a double double or a double single. A motel of this nature h...

This was one of the better rooms we stayed in while travelling in the North Island. The rooms are spacious enough and were found to be surprisingly very clean. My partner is very scrutinising of hotels when it comes to cleanliness and she was very impressed with this room. However, our showerhead provided very poor water pressure, which was the only let down. The facilities were very good at this hotel, including the heated spa, swimming pool, and games room. The restaurant was also good in terms of quality, but seemed a little overpriced. Definitely, would recommend staying here.

This is the third time that we have stayed in this hotel this year and the quality of the rooms and breakfast has not changed. Service was average, which was to say that barring the very friendly receptionist (Management, you need to do everything to keep her). There was no friendly feel about the place.
Shame.

Room Tip: Get a room on the first floor.
