Reviewed Oct. 11, 2018
We have stayed here before, but this time the place was looking very tired and run down. The reception was very friendly and they seemed to be helpful to those who wanted to book tours etc. We did our own thing. We arrived early and they let us park our car so that we could go into Russell for the afternoon. Reception promised milk, which we never got. Luckily we had brought our own. On the second day we went out for the day. When we arrived back the door was unlocked which we found strange and disturbing. As nothing was missing we left it at that. The cleaning staff and owners sit out on old furniture in the car park for a chat and smoke, which isn't a good look especially for foreign travellers.
Thank iIngrid123

Hi Ingrid, Thank you for your feedback. I did promise to put the milk in your fridge but I was called away and it was overlooked, I am sorry. We do like to look after everyone, hopefully you will return another time. Kind regards Maureen

Arrived in Paihia with no fixed itinerary. We saw the Swiss Chalet and liked the look. Maureen the proprietor was lovely, the room cosy and comfortable, it had a stovetop and microwave in the kitchenette making it self contained. The room was serviced each day. Easy walk into town and the ferry, Maureen can assist with bookings which was very helpful.
