    Perfect location

    We have stayed here on 3 or 4 previous occasions in the past. We came back here because of the ideal location and comfort of the motel. As always we were welcomed in a very friendly manner and offers of any assistance we may have wanted was offered. Full cooking facilities and utensils are provided and the furnishings are comfortable. We stayed in a unit overlooking the Bay with just a five minute stroll to local restaurants and shops. We did unfortunately have a slight mishap in the unit which would have resulted in some extra cleaning, but our offer to pay for any additional costs was declined. We will certainly return here on our next visit to Paihia.

    Great Views

    Central for everything, great sea views. Kitchen and BBQ, outside seating. OK for a couple of days stays, no drawers, small area for hanging clothes. Interior a little tired.

    Clean. Good location. Had everything we needed. Slightly dated. Shower head a little low and stove too close to wall. Could do with air conditioner as very hot at night. Would recommend.
