Nice, peaceful location some 3,5 km outside Paihia. Spacious, clean rooms, incl fully equipped kitchen, well laid out garden and a great private terrace. It also provides laundry and drying facilities, free internet service and a swimming pool. A very comfortable place managed by helpful and discreet hosts. The nearby highway is sparsely frequented at night.

Only stayed 1 night on 14th. Everything was clean, shower was hot and consistent. Tv and sky fantastic. Pool was refreshing and deep for a change. Was nice to have amazing broadband(35megabit down! ) without a time limit or cap(although they appreciate fair use) Free dvds to use during your stay Thanks so much for your chilled hospitality

We stayed there 3 nights and had a pleasant time. The room was spacious, clean and the kitchen well equipped, we used the stove a few times and it was great to have the option. It doesn't have air conditioning and too many bugs came in at night if the windows were open, but at least we had a fan....

We had a five day stay, we were given a spacious well equipped suite with a good kitchen and lovely private terrace.The service was excellent there was a good barbeque and washing machine. The pool was very good for a small site. It is a short drive from the town but well sited for the supermarket and waterfall walk.

Great place, quiet and clean. A little way out of Pahia which is great if you want a quiet locale as we did. We had a great individual unit with an excellent outlook and a mini kitchen. Recommend it to all.

We had an enjoyable stay at Ash Grove Motel on a long weekend away in the Bay of Islands. A friendly welcome, large room with full kitchen and large bathroom. All the comforts of home and perfect for a multi-night stay, with option for self catering. The decor in the room is slightly older, but still exactly what you need...

The rooms are a good size. The decor is outdated. The kitchenettes were a good idea and we ended up using them. Unfortunately there was no air conditioning but there was a fan that was needed. The pool area and surrounding areas need some maintenance on the gardens. The internet was hopeless at busy times.

Thank you for your comments. Since your stay we have installed a new Wi-Fi booster which gives all units high speed internet access. Very few motels in this area have air conditioning however we do provide fans in each unit for our guests comfort. All units are kept in a clean and tidy condition and are refurbished during our annual...

This was a marvellous place. Nice surprise of a personal small area to sit outside. So clean and tidy. Had everything you could need. We would recommend staying. Friendly and helpful owners who gave good advice.

Booked at short notice, we had the Honeymoon Cottage, very comfortable, but website omits to say that it backs onto the main road, which was very noisy during the day/evening. Unit was clean and comfortable, but faulty ball valve ran water all night. We opted for breakfast out of convenience, but for the money, would have expected butter instead of...
