Fabulous place to stay. Very clean and spacious room set back off the main road but walking distance to shops and beach. Everything is provided. Great shower room. Pleasant staff are very welcoming. Would return for sure.

We were up in Kerikeri for a wedding and decided to stay in Paihia so we could be close to the beach and have more of a chance to relax. The motel is well appointed, clean and very quiet. Would definitely recommend.

We had a great time here we stayed a total of 5 nights from the 2nd to the 7th.Our room was clean on arrival, was tidied daily and the hosts were lovely. It is in a good location but it does back on to two backpacker lodgings but we did not hear any loud noises at all.

We had a clean and spacious three-person room, the building looks nice and although close to backbacker motels, this place was quiet enough. 10 minutes walk to main street with restaurants and harbour. Free wifi and kitchenette with all you need for a bit of cooking.

The motel was very clean. Quite impressed by the little pretty pond just outside our room. Our boy even enjoyed swimming in the pool. It was also within walking distance to the wharf and beach. Good value!

Lovely exterior, good location and good facilities at the hotel. The room was large and spacious with a good sized bathroom and great kitchen. All were clean and the bed was comfortable. Free parking and wifi were very much welcomed. No complaints here.

Stayed here 4 nights prior to Christmas. Friendly and helpful owners who always had a smile. The rooms are very clean, have good basic amenities, was able to cook simple breakfast and homemade burgers, in a quiet location with a quick walk into Paihia. The decor is a bit tired but this doesn't mean tatty. The beds were comfy. The...
