“Weekend getaway”
Reviewed 24 October 2012

Just what we needed, to get away from a busy city life to relax in Pauanui for a couple of days. Barry was so helpful when we arrived, showed us to our unit (immaculate and everything we needed for our stay was available) and showed us places to see whilst in the area. It was very quiet and delightful. Breakfast was included which just added to our holiday experience. Just the right place we needed to rejuvenate. Thank you.

Very well designed complex, individual cabin style units which were exceptionally clean and well equiped.We were there in an off peak time with only a couple of other visitors. The cabins were nicely placed and quite private and the outlook was lovely. a very peaceful and picturesque area,with all you need in walking distance from your room. I would strongly recommend staying here to anyone looking in this area, we were on a road trip of the beautiful Nth Island of New Zealand and found this sort of accommodation so much nicer than motels. There is a laundry for guests to use, ideal when you are on the road for a long time,and self catering is an added bonus. The owner Barry was very pleasant and took time to advise you of all the things in surrounding areas worth seeing,going as far as to lend a a shovel and towels so we could venture off to the hot beach and dig our own thermal hot pool.[something that is really worth experiencing]. We would have stayed longer if time had allowed and certainly hope to visit again in the future. There is also a pool and tennis court if you are there in the summer and the property backs onto a golf course, which is a lovely backdrop.If you are looking for a nice casual spot for dinner try the Lime bar restaurant across the road, excellent food and extremely friendly hosts.

Whilst this was out of season for Pauanui we had a great if very short stay at this property. Barry met us with all the news and some great local tips then escorted us to the unit. The unit was very well set out and quite comfortable. We had a two bedroom unit which was quite clever in layout to clearly split into two single units if needed. Bathrooms were clean the hot water magnificent.
Easy walk to anywhere, whilst there is not much in Pauanui, what is there works.

Great spot in the lovely New Zealand Coramandel area.

Room Tip: Check with the operators to ensure you get a unit layout that suits you. Very helpful over email

Great place - a refreshing change from the hotel bit. Barry Fitzpatrick the owner was delightful to work with...very helpful. We enjoyed using the Bar-B and having breakfast self-catered in our room. The dogs were an added bonus! Fun time and central to a tour of the peninsula. What scenery.

This motor lodge is beautiful, in its surroundings, and its accommodations, The cottage we rented in August 2012 was immaculate and very comfortable with a coziness and ambiance that was delightful. Instead of the usual white sheets and towels of most places, they have beautiful taupe towels and lovely soft creamy sheets. We loved it and highly recommend it. The price is reasonable with a very friendly, helpful owner. It is walking distance to the beach and shopping center. Archies is the fabulous restaurant just a few blocks away from the motor lodge. I'm impressed by their size of the cottage andI look forward to a return visit.

In my honeymoon in NZ we arrived late to Pauanui ready to rest in the Pines Motor Lodge with an already booked room. when we arrived, there was nobody there to receive us. My surprise was next day, after being afraid to sleep in the car during a frozen night and finally sleeping in a B&B, the boss told me that he was there all night looking the All Blacks!!! We called, rang the bell all night without any reply. This has been an unfortunate experience and I think that it is not a good place to stay because In the case of being there nobody could have helped me if I was in trouble during the night!!!

Hello Fuzzytrip
It is a pity you have written this revue Such a revue requires you to be totally factual. We believe you fall well short of this. Therefore, we will make little comment.
We feel we must point out to readers that we do live on the property, close to our office, and the night you claim we were out we were certainly here, waiting for you..
Regards
Barry
