I can only review my own experience a this motel, and it was absolutely wonderful. We were greeted by the lovely Anne and her husband Reid, very warm and kind people who couldn't have been more helpful. The room was SO comfortable with two nice beds and two very cozy chairs for hanging out and watching a movie,and a cute little balcony. The little kitchen was nice.

We have just spent 3 nights here and really couldn't fault the place. It is situated only a couple of minutes walk to the beach and amenities and in a quiet location. The owner was very nice and friendly and helpful, we couldn't have asked for more really. If we were to return to Paihia, we would definitely stay here again.

Property has a great location and owners are friendly. Unfortunately there are 2 bedroom apartments behind the rooms. The type of people who rent these out appear to be young people who are intent on partying well past midnight. Bought this up with the owners as they have the right to request anyone to leave at any time without giving reason (as per info. given to us upon checkin)-they seemed unwilling to do anything. Property is a bit dated but good value for money.

Ann S, Owner at Austria Motel, responded to this reviewResponded 14 February 2018

We are sorry to hear about your experience. However the type of people who rent our 2 bedroom apartment are not young people intent on partying, they are mature people of all ages who are responsible and considerate. Very rarely do we get complaints about noise - when we do we will always act as quickly as possible to stop it.

My only regret is not staying longer!

The Austria Hotel is warm and welcoming.
It is centrally located and within a 5 minute walk to the wharf, supermarket and bus stop.

The owners are lovely and helpful.

It is quiet, two streets back from the beach.

While it isn't modern in terms of the decor, it's cosy and homey and an ideal place to stay.

I wouldn't hesitate to stay here in the future.

Booked for 4 nights initially (2-bed apartment) and ended up booking a further 3 nights (studio room). So friendly and helpful.
Great location, on road behind the main harbour side road, so it's a bit quieter. Reasonable views of the Bay of Islands from apartment, and studio has nice balcony area too, with side-on view.
Parking easy, laundry facilities useful! Mid-range accommodation that is well run and well thought out, and you just need to ask if you need something.
Easy to walk to all that Paihia has to offer, and Waitaingi is close by. Great base from which to explore Bay of Islands.

Room Tip: 2-bed apartment is very spacious and more private. Up 2 floors though. Studio rooms are very comfy and well-equipped, on first floor.
