“Really enjoyed the deck in the afternoon.”
Reviewed 30 October 2011

We recently stayed in the Sea Spray Suites, in an upstairs unit. We were very happy with the unit. It had a very well stocked kitchen, one of the best I have seen in a motel.
I am pleased we took an upstairs unit as it gave us a lovely deck to sit and enjoy the afternoon sun.
The beds were very comfortable and firm.
I liked the location as it was far enough away from main part of town, but also close enough to go there if needed. Next door was a good takeaway shop and also a mini supermarket.
We would definitely stay there again.
Management were very helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Get an upstairs unit.

We stayed in a two bedroom ocean view room - thought there would be road noise as the road is between the complex and the beachfront. The views are great - but check first that your room has a view if thats what is important to you. Our unit was clean, warm, spacious and had a lovely full kitchen. A large balcony with comfy chairs. Well stocked in the tea, coffee, soap and towel department. Its probably about 10 min walk to the main shops and ferrys at Paihia, and a two minute journey to a large supermarket the other direction. The management are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble.

My only two negatives is that the noise from other room above was loud and clear and the spa unfortunately was not working when we were there. Would stay again when in Paihia ;-)

Room Tip: Get a beachfront room if you want a guaranteed seaview - top floor if possible to avoid any noise fr...

Situated in a little piece of heaven, Paihia, Northland, New Zealand, Sea Spray Suites offers really good accommodation for a reasonable price.

the rooms were very well equipped with everything one would need for a short or long stay. Very clean and well lit rooms with balconies for smokers in each room.

Room Tip: try and request an ocean view room

We stayed three nights at SeaSpray on our cycling holiday. The checkin was smooth and friendly, and they arranged to securely store our bikes downstairs.
The seafront unit was fantastic - nice appointments, and a great kitchen - so much so we did actually self cater (well the boys liked the chips from the takeaway next door, as a side to my cooking!!).
Supermarket close by and the wharf was a short 700m ride or walk away
And loved the sound of the waves at night

Room Tip: Pay the little extra for the sea front rooms

The Sea Spray Suites provided an excellent location with a spacious and clean environment. Shirley was great to deal with and very friendly. The rooms were unbeatable value for money. The room had the most well equipped kitchen I have ever seen for accommodation of this type and came with an extremely well stocked mini bar (that was also very reasonably priced!). The room was well serviced with everything you would expect.

We only stayed at this place because we had discount vouchers for it. We probably wouldn't have picked this place if we had had to pay full price but the rooms were very, very nice, with a fully equipped kitchen and nice comfortable lounge. The location is good, close to the beach, but the sea views will depend on what side of the building your room is located at (so if you're booking because we want sea views, make sure you check with them which room you're getting).

Reviewed 12 June 2011

We stayed for one night in a Sea View Suite - we liked the room, it was very clean and the facilities were good. We like a firm bed so the bed suited us fine. It was very hot so we slept with the door to the terrace open and it was great listening to the waves, until about 7am when the traffic started up but that was to be expected, no problem.

Our only issue with the room was that we could hear every sound from the neighbouring rooms - even light switches being turned on and off. We could hear the other guests talking, walking, etc... Instantly made it feel more like a backpacker hostel room rather than the luxury room it was supposed to be!! I would still go back though, overall we liked the place.

Room Tip: Pay the extra $30 or so for a sea view room.
