Very good 8.4 From 68 reviews

Very good 8.0
A great spot, close to everything, great views and a very helpful and welcoming owner.
Nora, nzRomance trip
Fair 4.0
I thought the property looked tired - the curtains stuck on the tracks and didn’t close properly, the taps dripped, there were no tissues, we had to ask for the third guest towel every day...not what I was expecting after having stayed there before
Ellen, nz3 night trip with friends
Very good 8.0
Very basic
Dated but clean no air conditioning. Bit over priced but close to town
Carolyn, nzOther trip
Exceptional 10.0
Paihia Overnighter
The Studio we were in was facing the sea with stunning views. Sitting on the balcony overlooking the Harbour with your coffee in the morning was very refreshing. I could get used to that but unfortunately had to return home.
Brian, nz1 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Great centrally located Budget Motel
As budget motels go there is nothing wrong with this one - it has everything you need if you are just looking for a comfortable place to sleep. It was ideally located about half way (walkable) to the main township and Waitangi which suited our requirements perfectly.
