Very good 8.0
Clean spacious units
Two couples in adjoining units. We were in the unrenovated units which had minor maintenance issues though still very spacious and clean. Loved the proximity to the township.

Exceptional 10.0
Great place to stay in Paihia, central, roomy, clean and with all the facilities we needed. Management very helpful and accomodating.
Peter, nz2 night trip
Very good 8.0
Great location
We were a family of three adults and one child. The Bounty is in. Great location, just a 5 minute walk into the commercial area of Paihia and ten minutes to the wharf. Also just 10 minutes drive to the car ferry at Opua. Friendly staff and good parking. Our unit was very comfortable but, as mentioned to the owner, subject to noise from the unit above us....could clearly hear people walking around. Cooking facilities were OK, but pretty basic utensils in the kitchen. We would stay here again, but maybe in an upstairs unit.

Clean and comfortable
This is probably one of the best motels we’ve ever stayed. The room was tidy and had everything we needed for our stay. Location is another bonus as it was pretty close to everything. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and definitely visit again.
Vivek Kumar, nz3 night trip
Very good 8.0
Nice location and helpful staff
A motel with really good location, walking distance to the harbour and nice restaurants nearby. We arrived late in the evening but it was no problem, the staff arranged late check-in. Nice room but the hair-dryer was working very poorly which is a problem if you have long hair... The wifi was only working in one of our rooms.

2 night Bay of Islands
We stayed at The Bounty Hotel for 2 nights. Well positioned hotel only 300 yards from the beach. Staff very helpful and friendly. Bed was very comfortable and bathroom was newly refurbished. Good value.

Fair 4.0
Old & run down
Unbelievably over priced for the condition of the room. Doors didn’t close, back door to kids room didn’t lock to outdoor area, shower leaked, toilet barely flushed. So run down.
