I was in Paihia for two days. It was a great value and I would stay there again.
As the other reviewers have mentioned, it's clean and close enough to the beach but still secluded. It's really a trade off in Paihia - if you want something with a great view of the beach, you have to be willing to tolerate the stares of all the tourists walking by :) But considering it was only a 10 minute walk from the main pier, I could just as easily take my reading material and find a nice place to sit right on the beach.
Extremely helpful and friendly staff. I would use it again if I were to visit the Bay of Islands again.
