Although we booked a studio we ended up with a two bedroom unit. It was very spacious and comfortable and had excellent kitchen facilities. The location is very convenient and the hosts are very welcoming.

This motel is located two blocks from the main street and wharf in Paihia, easy walking distance to restaurants, stores (including two grocery stores), and the starting point for many excursions. The motel is basic and shows a little wear, but it is clean, comfortable, and well maintained by friendly and helpful owners. You might want to pay a little...

Peaceful location and a cosy place. Very central, really close to the wharf, restaurants, cafes, shops, you name it. I had a small, but very nice, clean and tidy room with comfortable bed. I enjoyed my stay in Paihia a lot. It was very nice going for walks along the shore!

Good value accommodation a few minutes walk from the centre of Paihia. This is a small family run motel with parking right outside your unit. There is a small patio area with seating at the back of each unit and a guest laundry and BBQ area. Free wifi.
