We stayed 3 nights in Austria Motel. The owners are very friendly people. The room was big and comfy, but a bit old and not to clean. We had to kill some big spiders and had to remove several spider webs from the ceiling. Yes, it was the time of the year for spiders. I talked to the owner and...

The Austria motel offers self-catering rooms. The rooms are perfectly clean. The kitchen is sufficiently equipped to be able to cook for two persons. If you have noisy neighbours you'll probably have a problem. We did not and we slept well. The motel is very well situated. Close to all the sights and action around and in Paihia. There are...

This motel is very comfortable with all the basic amenities. We especially liked having a balcony. It is centrally located and very quiet. The hosts, Reid and Ann, were very friendly and helpful. It was our second time to this motel and hope to return again.

It is well located, few blocks away from wharf and bus stop. Our room was spacious, with comfortable armchairs, table with chairs and tv cable. It also had a small kitchen with electric stove and kettle, toaster, kitchen tools and fridge. Complimentary tea and soluble coffee were available.

Owners friendly. Motel was well stocked and plenty of space inside. Location excellent. Would definitely stay there again. “The rocking chairs and comfy bed made us feel at home, the balcony was an added bonus. The kitchen facilities were good.” 干净整洁。方便。 我们在这里玩到一起是缘分,这里就结束了,一切两个都不能吃辣了……一定程度上海报道……如今已经很少有人能够在一起吧。这些如你爱他爱的人了……在线咨询的问题……在手 Why do I have to type Chinese ? Can't use English?! Silly app!
