Our country is just magic, took us 2hrs 15mins to get to the the magical Bay of Islands, and from the moment we arrived everyone was happy, what a lovely waterfront apartment we had, even our little old jack russell loved it, thank you so much for allowing pets here. The kids had a swim in the pool, yes its winter, real kiwi kids. We had such perfect weather. We didn't want to go home.. We will be back for sure, already looking for great deals to come back.

We had such wonderful family time up here.

We stayed at the Edgewater palms from 1st to 7th February 2012 in a two bedroomed waterfront apartment. From the moment we arrived, the staff at Edgewater Palms did everything to make our trip as pleasant and easy as possible. We were collected from the airport by Rex who then offered to take us to the supermarket to stock up once we had unpacked. The appartment itself was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The manager Nicki and her colleague Ben were very helpful,, organising trips and offering to drive us to some of the many festivities planned for NZ Waitangi Day. At the end of our holiday, Rex was on hand to drive us back to the airport - all free of charge. We would throughly recommend the Edgewater Palms for a trip to Paihia. The setting is beautiful and the staff so friendly and helpful. A wonderful week to finish a great holiday in New Zealand. Kia Ora

Well appointed apartments, very clean and modern. We were disappointed that we were given a one bedroom appointment overlooking the shabby rear car park of the bar next door even though we had booked a water view. We really didn't want to look out onto their rubbish and lines of laundry full of bar towels! The reception staff did move us on request to a ground floor apartment which was an improvement. However there was no privacy as we were feet away from the pool and people walking past could see right into our bedroom and lounge. We enjoyed our stay but compared to the other 9 hotels/apartments we stayed in on our tour of NZ we would definately not rate these 5 star, only 4.

Room Tip: Ask not to be located overlooking neighbouring car park!

This property is now part of the Ramada chain so booking is easy. It is directly on the main street through Paihia. Our one bedroom apartment was on the street front but yet it was very quiet. We sat on the balcony one night enjoying a nice bottle of NZ Pinot Noir (purchased next door at the liquor store) and watched the lights of Russell, across the bay. You can simply cross the street and the beach is there. Very convenient. The rooms were clean, neat, and had TVs in both the bedroom and the living area. Fully equipped kitchen if you stay longer and want to cook. The management, Nikki, is wonderful and very helpful in suggesting sites to see and restaurants. A really lovely property in a really lovely place.

We arrived quite late in the afternoon and Nicky could not have been more helpful. She gave us a great rate and booked us on the most amazing tours (at last minute notice) and advised us on the best places to eat. We were so comfortable and relaxed that our very special 25th wedding anniversary could not have been better. We found our apartment warm, spacious, comfortable and very relaxing. We had a waterfront apartment looking over the bay. This place was the highlight of our trip to the north island of NZ.

Stayed here for 2 nights during our trip. The staff were very helpful and the 2 bedroom apartment was excellent, very clean, a home away from home.
Even though it rained for 2 days and we could not go on any tours this was fantastic.

Room Tip: Get a room on the first floor

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.
