Location is only a few minutes drive to both the town and the waterfall. Room was clean and spacious and the bed was comfy. The swimming pool is a great size to relax and cool down and is surrounded by well kept grounds.

My friend and I stayed here after coming from a not so nice motel in Kawakawa so it was a surprise to find something that was so lovely and welcoming. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and gave us lots of info. Our room opened up onto the pool and we made full use of the hot tub -...

When using outside sources to book this hotel, they have found a loop hole that allows them to advertise free cancellation but in the fine print they state a policy that you must actually cancel before 7 days, thus it is not a free cancellation- but they will still enjoy charging your credit card. So if you are a free...

I stayed two nights here and loved it. My room opened to the pool and gardens which were very pretty and the pool itself was a really good size. The room itself was lovely and clean and had all amenities. It's a three minute drive to the shops. I would stay here again.

We loved our clean and spacious room with French doors opening onto garden area. Very quiet peaceful location and we would have stayed longer but it was a little further from town than we expected. Manager was extremely obliging

We stayed here over New Years and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our unit was clean, spacious and very comfortable and the kitchenette modern and well-equipped. What we particularly liked about our stay was that the motel is located about five-ten minutes drive away from Paihia itself and away from the crowds. Our room had french doors which opened out onto...

Very nice place to stay in Paihia. Although there are not on the waterfront, the motel is very nice, with a swimming pool and nice clean rooms. We had a family room with living area and kitchen. They do not offer breakfast as others Motel do.

We booked this motel for a short break from work in Auckland to explore the northland. We stayed 4 nights and found the room clean and comfortable.

We loved this motel, it was a beautiful ensuite room, which opened up onto a garden. There was a TV and DVD player in the room and we found the kitchenette very useful. There were also laundry facilities. Would definitely stay there again.
