    Very comfortable accommodation. We had a two night stay, room was very roomy for a 2 bedroom unit had everything we needed. Well within walking distance to Paihia yet not too close to hear any traffic noise. Staff were really friendly too.

    Comfortable motel and handy to the town center, restaurants etc. Easy access and parking and easy walking to main Paihia and Waitangi sights plus the wharf for cruises into the bay or to Russell. An easy stay of reasonable value
