“Great base for Bay of Islands”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

We spent a very comfortable week there. The appartment was well appointed and the service excellent - friendly, prompt and helpful. The Palms is conveniently located for visiting the sights, the markets, the vineyards, the beach and transport/tours starting point.

Stayed here a few nights while traveling the Bay of Islands. The rooms are nice and big as well as great views of the ocean! Very lovely staff at the front desk that goes out of their way to try and make your stay a great experience. Would highly recommend to anyone.

We had a wonderful few days in Paihia staying at the Edgewater Palms.

The Edgewater is in a perfect location in Paihia, walking distance to the shops and wharf area. The 1 bdrm apartment we stayed in was well appointed, clean, quiet and very comfortable for two of us. The staff were very helpful organising tours and suggesting

Would definitely stay at the Edgewater again and recommend to others!

Having decided to have a long weekend away in the glorious Bay of Islands, I was trawling Wotif to find somewhere nice to stay, when a work colleague told me they had recently been in Paihia, had booked in somewhere else, then moved to The Edgewater Palms .... good enough for me.

Got a great rate from the friendly staff on the phone, welcome when we arrived was equally as friendly - room - fantastic !!!

Modern, clean, balcony, comfortable bed, swimming pool - probably the best accomodation in town, would thoroughly recommend.

Have been to Paihia a number of times, is an incredible spot, so quiet and relaxing. Thought the town itself was a little tired. Needs some better restaurants, a decent cafe - food in general was a bit dated and lacking in choice compared to the likes of Queenstown, Hawkes Bay etc.

Edgewater Palms was brilliant, would stay again in a heartbeat. Man that pool was cold - hoooooo weeeee ( loved the spa ) !!!!!

Thanks Edgewater, your friendly service made all the difference.

Room Tip: Little bar next door does a good breakfast.

On behalf of all our friends and family I would like to say a huge thankyou to Nicki for all her help and support when we stayed for our daughters wedding. From the time we started looking for motels in Paihia (a year in advance) Nicki was amazing - her help with all our bookings right through to helping with a pre wedding function were absolutely fantastic and very much appreciated. What a great place to stay for a function such as a wedding- our guests were all most impressed - Nicki I dont know how to thank you enough for your help and support which went way beyond the call of duty, I feel we left a real friend when we sadly had to say goodbye. I would thoroughly recommend Edgewater Palms for anyone requiring accommodation and particularly if like us you need that extra bit of help. Thanks heaps Nicki we'll never forget you and we'll be back!!! Dawn

Expert, generous and warm on-site managing family make this lovely hotel feel really special. Location is perfect for Bay Islands visit and every day sports, restaurants and beach. Rooms are immaculate and have great kitchens with washer/dryer, nice glass and cookware, great closets, linens and bathrooms. Bedrooms are a little tight and we missed windows that could open or air conditioning, though the big fans are good. Lovely pool and great views from lots of rooms -- the family that runs the place is very present without bothering you -- they have great advice and make quick fixes for any issue. Wifi service was a little dodgy but we managed. i would go back in a second.

Maintenance is lax, in a beautiful place. We had a studio, bedroom very small, as was the bed.
Bought Internet vouchers, the only places we could get on line was sat on the concrete step outside the office or on the front of the pool steps! Halfway through our stay we found it worked really well sat in Alfresco, the cafe next door!
The television in the bedroom didn't work, the bedroom blind had no cord and couldn't be raised and the loo roll holder was hanging off.
Great kitchen, but who goes on holiday to cook.
