I can only comment on our "unit" which was in an old house behind the (apparently newer) units in front of it. The house has been converted into 3 "units" - we were in a 2-bedroom unit below the two others. There is absoluelty no sound proofing in the house so even the slightest noise can be heard. We had a bad night's sleep from the noise in the above units and were woken early by one lot leaving at 6.30am. Any noise outside in the surrounding houses and motels can also be heard quite clearly. The beds were too soft and uncomfortable. The decor and interior fixtures and fittings are all very old and worn (in keeping with the age of the house); the bathroom is average with a very poor shower. The owner and website boast a view of the bay (inner Bay of Islands) from this unit but it is obstructed by the rooves of all the units and other motels in front of it - it is disappointing. The charge of NZ$250 a night for 4 adults is excessive for this unit relative to other motels in Paihia. We were booked for 2 nights but moved out after one night to a better, cheaper motel - the Aarangi Tui Motel
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
