The location is beautiful near beaches and harbour. It was a quiet "village" with a few basic shops and cafes in easy walking distance. The people were friendly and helpful. The first full day we were there of our scheduled 2 night stay was spent driving around the nearby area seeing the various beaches, both in pauanui and along the...

My husband and I started our New Zealand vacation at the beginning of January on the Coromandel Peninsula. We stayed at the Pauanui Pines Motor Lodge and loved it. Although Pauanui is not a large town, the lodge was right in the middle and accessible to everything. The owners were such nice people and offer free self-serve laundry and bicycles....

We booked two nights and wish we could stay longer. Immaculate accommodation and a nice and relaxed atmosphere. The owners were chilled and this permeated throughout the Motor Lodge - nothing was too much trouble. Bikes were available for use as were the three BBQ's. Shops and cafes are a 10 minute walk and the fantastic beaches a 5 minute...

We stayed here for 3 nights over the New Year. The motel is exceptionally quiet, very clean, well looked after, with very good owners. It is a short walk to the nearby shops, and the beach is also within walking distance. We caught the ferry to Tairua one day which was lovely, and took a trip up to Hahei another...

Very comfortable motel cabin with kingsize bed. Kitchen area meant we could prepare snacks, breakfast and simple dinner. Local shops nearby. Borrowed shovel for visit to Hot Water Beach. Free wifi but limited to 500 MB each. Free guest laundry very useful, too.

Run by such friendly people. There is everything here you need, including spades for hot water beach. Kitchenette has 2 rings and a microwave so you can manage to cook a meal. Nicest place we have stayed so far. Just wish we were staying longe.

We couldn't fault this motel at all. Check-in was fast, friendly and efficient. The room itself was spotless with all the facilities that we'd need for a one night or even a one week stay. Guest laundry, WiFi, swimming pool, tennis court, barbecue - all are there for the guests to use. We'll be staying here when we pass through...

Pauanui PML offers great chalets. Diningroom with tv and heater, shower, bedroom with large beds and Kichinette. Tennis court and pool. Very kindly and helpful staff. Chalets are clean and well maintained. Ask for a free shovel if you go to Hot Water Beach! Marvellous place to stay on 3 min from shopping center and 12 to beach.
