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.

What a great motel! Spotlessly clean and comfortable but the best thing was peace and quiet! As a light sleeper I value silence and darkness. Have a separate bedroom really makes a difference and this motel has it. Very friendly staff too, plus free laundry with dryer really helped us ☺

One of the best motels we have stayed in anywhere! Like private chalets, very quiet, well equipped and handily located a couple of minutes walk to local shops, restaurants and facilities. Guest laundry on site. Swimming pool, tennis court, guest BBQ, and free use of bicycles also available. Gary and Jan are perfect hosts, very welcoming and extremely helpful.

Our first experience was calling to warn that we'd be late due to very heavy traffic travelling down from Paihia. They were very friendly and reassured us that they'd still be around if we arrived after reception closed at 8 (although in the event we arrived just in time). The cabin was comfortable with a spacious living area, kitchenette and...

I stayed here on two occasions for practical rather than tourist reasons and the motel was a perfect base for me. Clean, comfortable, quite modern and with everything I required (no oven but I wouldn’t have used one anyway). Stay was in winter so I didn’t even look at pool (but heating was very good), and the place was quiet...

Pauanui Pines Motor Lodge made us feel like we were family. We enjoyed staying at the Pauanui Pines. We had a fantastic trip and this location added to the great travel experience. The service was great. It is family run and just a nice homey atmosphere. Highly recommend this location.
