Perfect place to stay in Paihia!”

I highly recommend this plcae to anyone wanna stay in Paihia. The host is really friendly and helpful to us, and the room was really clean and cozy. The location was also perfect to go main block of Paihia (just 5 mins on foot). If you have a stay in this motel, you can see the beautiful sunset of beach shore, just in front of your room!

Great location in Paihia. Very warm & friendly greeting on arrival. Accommodation extremely clean and had a range of facilities to cater to all requirements with good cooking equipment available to utilise if not wanting to dine out regularly. Don’t be deterred by older style exterior of motel (design not maintenance) as rooms themselves are certainly ok. Would definitely recommend.

Bayside views without the luxury price tag”

We stayed 3 nights in this family owned motel, with all the comforts of home and friendly and helpful hosts (the owners). The location is brilliant, being on the main road just a few minutes walk from the town centre and jetty, and with views of the bay across the road. Very quiet, very clean, very pleasant and very reasonably priced. Les from Perth WA.

Just the best!”

This place was retro themed but included all the mod cons. Our room was spacious and clean and I loved the retro feel. Location was the best, beachfront and a one minute walk to shops and the wharf. The Manager was friendly and accommodating, I phoned in to say we’d be late checking in so our room was prepped for our very late arrival. We are so pleased we booked here it made our Paihia stay just the best!

Perfect location. Old and dated for the price ”

Although super clean this is an old 70’s style motel . I loved it having a kitchenette so we could have breakfast coffee etc with the groceries we’d bought. Supermarkets close by. Right next door to rayz bar so could enjoy a cold beer . I just thought for the amount of money we paid compared to our previous accomodations on this trip , the place wouldn’t have been so old .

The motel is good location around 5 to 10 minutes walk to the wharf and eateries. We stay there 2 nights, there was housekeeping on second day, which we don't expect. Parking is just right in front of the unit that we are staying. There is a small kitchenette in the unit, equipped with microwave, kettle, induction cooker, small oven, utensils.
