Our premium studio room was so well appointed, good kitchen, very comfortable and wonderful views over Paihia and The Bay. I wanted to bring home the superb retro glass dining table and green chairs! On arrival we borrowed bikes (yes that's right - not rented but borrowed at no charge) from the lodge and explored the village and environs. We had prebooked 3 days sailing from Paihia and also preorganised to leave our hire car with staff at Admiral's View - such wonderful relaxed service.

Room Tip: We had a premium studio room at the front which included a spa bath and balcony with fantastic views...

Charming motel just two blocks from the ocean makes this place extremely convenient. Each unit comes with a furnished kitchenette and there are washers/dryers onsite (for a fee). The owner and staff were very helpful and friendly with information on the ferries, restaurants and area attractions. Most units have a sliding glass door that leads to the common balcony/entrance. There are two end rooms that have private balconies. It appeared all rooms were the same size, which was large. The beds were very comfortable. The bathrooms were efficient.

Room Tip: Choose and upstairs room if you want less traffic. This is a two story facility (no elevator). Par...

We stayed for 2 nights at Admiral's View. We were very impressed with the level of service, the rooms were really comfortable and the amenities available on site were an added bonus i.e. free bike hire and WiFi. The location was perfect too, within easy walking distance of the beach and town. We will definitely stay here when we visit the area again.

After a terrible night in a hostel not to far away we decided to have a night in admirals view. As we arrived late the man at the reception deck was lovely he gave us a deal for a twin room. There was a beautiful double bed and a single. Just what we wanted. Everything was so clean (spotless) the bath and shower were fantastic. Brilliant night sleep. Gorgeous view. We couldn't ask for any thing else. Would certainly stay here again.

I booked 3 nights, stayed 5 nights and returned for a further 3 nights it was so good. Lovely suite. Was upgraded to this from a cheaper room. Boy was I pleased.
Owner tremendous. This is the place to stay in Northlands.
Paihia, Russel and the Bay of Islands was enchanting. Did not make it to Rienga Point but next time . . Plenty of eating places in Paihia.

Room Tip: Sea View rooms excellent
