We had a friendly welcome and great customer service by Trish and Jim. It was a pleasant stay. Clean rooms and no hidden costs. Great location, walking distance from main town of Paihia and close to amenities.

Spent two nights at the motel and was extremely grateful to be upgraded to a larger unit that better suited my families needs. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay there on my next visit.

Perfect place to stay in Paihia. 5 minutes walk to the harbour, and even less to restaurants etc. Staff are wonderful and knowledgeable about the area, very helpful suggesting things to do - even in the rain!

Amenities were provided, interior was basic, a little dated, but functional. Overall a comfortable stay. Wifi...

Charming and very helpful hosts. Room and facilities good. Great location near to the promenade though no views. Hosts helped to book excursions and gave clear guidance to help us enkoy our stay. Swimming pool small but big enough to swim in. Hot tub and barbecue definite plusses. Would not hesitate to re-book if specific rooms available.

“Originally, our room was a smaller one on the lower level....not a problem really, but we preferred something a bit larger and Trish made sure we got it by moving our booking.....slightly more expensive room but worth it for us. Very accomodating. We appreciated it.”
