This hotel is perfect for the couple days to visit Paihia and very well located. Highly recommended. The staff are very nice and ready to help you on any questions. It is waterfront but rooms can be also at the back and with the mountains view which is nice as well.

Tried to get a room at the Copthorne but they were fully booked. Luckily this hotel had space. We got a triple room and the facilities were decent. Really centrally located and lots of parking.

Enjoyed our stay here and wish we could have stayed longer as it was one of the most comfortable places to stay so far. Friendly helpful staff who assisted us with a booking error. Great views across to Russell and easy walking distance to restaurants, cafes and shops. Slept ver y well here with minimal disturbance.

I love the old NZ Hotels. They have been around for a long time and may seem a bit tired and not super trendy but they are comfortable, quiet, in good locations and in this case with well trained and friendly staff. The restaurant was good and food fresh with the most amazing views over the Bay. We were there... More

Pros: Heated pool and outdoor pool which my son loved. Location - close to everything and clean. Cons: We had a 2 year old with us and despite booking a family room were only given 2 towels (2 of everything actually). We constantly had to park away from our room (no parks near us). We were also next to a... More

No problem with this hotel - it was very clean with friendly service and great views and location. The staff were very helpful and the rooms were adequate - Wi-Fi, as with most of New Zealand, was hit and miss but we managed to send a few emails.

We were welcomed by helpful efficient Matawaia even though we had no booking and the hotel was busy. Parking outside our room. Long bench under the TV is very useful.
