This is a great motel with a very friendly owner who was extremely helpful in every way! The motel was an easy walk down to the pier and everything that you wanted. The room was spacious, comfortable and very well maintained. Highly recommended!!

Very pleasant stay, set back from the shoreline by a block, eliminating road noise impact. Very tidy spacious rooms, clean and well maintained. Will definitely return again when next in Paihia. Thanks

Thank you for the great review. We do try to include everything into a unit that you need while away. It drives me mad when staying other places with the kids and they don't have the basics!

We received a warm family welcome at the hotel on our 5 week trip around NZ. We travelled with our 2 year old daughter and were well catered for, including toys in the room a really nice touch. Nice clean room with all the facilities you could need. Good location close to waterfront, within walking distance of town, shops, cafes...

Thank you for you lovely review. Having travelled with small children both in NZ and overseas we understand the challenges you face, sometimes a new toy makes the all the difference!

We booked an apartment suite at Admiral's View because a google search informed me that it was one of the few motels in Paihia in our price range that allowed 4 guests in two bedrooms (which I thought was strange, but that's another story). Despite the sight-unseen nature of our booking, we certainly were not disappointed.The two rooms were each...

We booked two rooms for two nights and could not fault it. The rooms were spacious, clean, light and well equipped for a short stay. The owners were fantastic and a great source of local information as to where to eat, and places to visit that would suit our family. The chocolate shop in Kerikeri was a treat - thanks...

We had 2 rooms and no complaints. The rooms were spacious and made you feel like you were on holiday. Easy walk to the water. Short walk into town. Restaurants near by. The staff were helpful and accommodating.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Friendly 4+star self-contained and serviced motel in a central location. Relax and enjoy the view to the sea from the sunny balcony or patio of most units. Admirals View Lodge is well located for walking to all your Paihia activities and attractions - plus tours pick up daily from the motel. We are close to the Paihia beach (only 1 block, 250m) but benefit from a peaceful location away from Paihia's main road. Let us help you plan your trip to see the Bay of Islands and the famous Hole in the Rock. Take a bus on an exciting journey to Cape Reinga or enjoy the thrill of swimming with dolphins. Enjoy a ferry ride to Romantic Russell or soak up the history at Waitangi Treaty Grounds. ... more   less
