Very clean and has all the facilities need, very good value for money. The bed is super comfy, it's more like a motel but without the high price. It's close to a beach and right next to Countdown, so if you're out of bread or just about anything, it's handy to head into Countdown. We paid $55 for the room... More

Stayed for two nights in a single room (rm 3 - own sink outside) Room was a good size, walls are super thin though and I had a family of the loudest stompers above me. However, I found the cleanliness to be good, the kitchen was one of the best kept and well equipped that I've come across. Bed exceptionally... More

I guess we'll start out with the pros... It's not as far as some of the other reviewers have made it out to be. It's clean and the rooms are good. The cons? I'm from England and my girlfriend is Chinese. After she went to bed, the owner (manager?) of the place went off on some tangent about how he... More

This is a very pleasant place. It is cheap, not far from the beach, not far from the supermarket and you can borrow bikes, canoes or play the pool, watch TV. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean and the atmosphere is very friendly. I stayed at Mayfair Lodge one week in total as I had to have a rest... More

Hi I’ve spent more than 4 weeks in the “Mayfair Lodge” and I really enjoyed it. It is always clean, Pamela, the Manager is very friendly and there are free kayaks and bikes. It’s just a 10- minute walk to the town and very close to the supermarket. If you want to spend some relaxing days in Paihia, this place... More

The Mayfair Lodge is a nice and small hostel some 10 minutes on foot from the centre. To get there you have to walk along the beach, so who cares :) Around the corner is a big countdown, thats very handy if you don't have a car. The hostel is clean, lovely and has got everything you need. Wayne, the... More

A group of us stayed with Mayfair over the New Years Period, We found it to be unclean and smelly. Our room was small and had a distinct smell of urine, we told the owner about it and his response was oh we can't have that but nothing was done. The blankets smelt like they hadnt been washed, the pillows... More

We stayed at the lodge for 3 nights. We camped out in the front yard for the first two nights. We had a pretty good first two nights and if you would like to camp, this is a good place for Paihia. Yes, it is a 10 minute walk from the city centre, but it sure is a nice walk... More
