Reviewed 11 May 2014

We arrived late and had the keys rightaway from the reception as I called to inform earlier .The rooms were spacious and had what we expected. Kitchen was very well equipped and everything was pretty new and working well. Location was excellent not far from main street, anyway I don't like too crowded places. As the suites faced the sea, the sunrise was a great morning wakeup call. I would highly recommend anyone to stay there esp. the units on the higher floors.

We were very happy with our one bedroom apartment, no view but very quiet. The rooms are spotlessly clean and modern with quality fittings. A lovely bathroom and well appointed kitchen.
A bit of a walk to restaurants & ferry to Russell, ok if reasonably fit and it's not raining! The chocolates and personalised welcome is a nice touch.
The only grumble I have is no free wifi, something that is becoming expected by travellers these days, particularly the overseas variety with no roaming.

Room Tip: Maybe rooms on the first floor would be more private?

Dear TassieAussie,

Thank you for taking the time to let us know how you found your time with us. We appreciate your compliments regarding the cleanliness and layout of our suites - excellent to hear. Regarding the Wi-Fi, we do offer some data free of charge, and then a small cost applies from there forward, but please accept my apologies if this was not properly explained to you during your stay.

We hope to see you again should you visit New Zealand in the future!

Kind regards,
Lucy

Nice!
A lot of thought was put into fitting out this small apartment and the result is very favourable. We found it very comfortable and tasteful and could really relax when we were not out exploring the area. We didn't have a water view, but we didn't expect one for the price, but it is right across the road from the water.
We loved it.

Nicely furnished with most things you need. Clean and looks recently refurbished. A short walk to town and the treaty grounds. The downside is that it is very near the petrol station and it can be a bit noisy. An ocean view room would make a difference. In general, the rooms aren't very private. It's more like a nice motel room than a hotel but okay for the price

Can't believe anyone has anything negative to say about this place!
Great location - short drive/walk to restaurants & shops
Beautiful rooms - comfortable beds, good size bathroom, very soft couch and an AWESOME full kitchen!
Not many places at this price have such amenities.
Downside - no free wifi & pillows are a little hard

We stayed in 14 different motels during our time in New Zealand and this was by some way the worst. While one small side of the motel overlooks the beach the vast majority of rooms share a view over the next door petrol station and/or adjacent motel. The cooking facilities while adequate in scope were complex and without instructions. Even the helpful receptionist could not get them to function. Worst of all there was no indoor table on which to eat. This required either the use of your lap or the use of the table outside the room. Given the need to eat outdoors the privacy/noise from other guests was also a problem. We reported the toilet flush as faulty but it was just as faulty on our departure as on arrival. Look elsewhere - there must be better options in Paihia!

Unfortunately my friend booked this so I couldn't really complain, but the room we are in is awful. Furniture is worn, no washing machine (supposed to be fully self contained) and there is an awful smell. We spent 1 night in the Ocean View suites which were lovely except no aircon in the bedrooms. Unfortunately for our second night there were no ocean views available . The room we are in is totally overpriced. Won't stay again.

Dear Di K,

Thank you for letting us know your thoughts on your recent stay with us. I am quite surprised by your comments, as we generally receive very positive feedback regarding the upkeep and standards of our suites. I assure you I will be following up with a management inspection into the suite you were in for the latter half of your stay to find what issues we need to address. Please accept my apologies on behalf of the team here.

Kind regards,
Lucy
