Great experience!”

We had a great experience! The rooms are a bit out dated, but they were clean and the staff was beyond helpful and accommodating! We arrive mid morning and the man running the office helped set us up on a Bay of island boat tour, sale day, which was an incredible experience! I would recommend this hotel, it's a great value for the price. Only a quick walk to the wharf and town with restaurants, beautiful sights, and shopping.

Very satisfied”

We were very happy with our accommodation, the rooms are basic and a little dated but importantly are clean and comfortable and had a handy kitchen. We had a ground floor unit looking across to the water. The units themselves are only about a pleasant 10 minute stroll to the main area of town which makes them a bit quieter as they are removed from the restaurant/traffic areas. The largest supermarket is only about a 5 minute walk around the corner. Staff very pleasant and friendly.

Convenient studio at the quieter end of Paihia”

Location, helpful host

This is a good place to stay if you want the convenience of being near Waitangi, Russell, Kerikeri etc but in the next bay to the jetty. It's on the road facing the beach, so some road noise but this reduced at night. The studio was a little tired and had a small kitchenette, but was walking distance from a takeaway fish & chips, a basic supermarket and several restaurants. The owner provided a map and discounts for nearby attractions.

Great stay in a great spot”

Friendliness of staff, great location, plants outside made it look homely

This hotel is located just around the corner from the main group of shops which are approximately 5 to 10 minutes to walk to. It is right opposite a lovely beach. It is old but in great condition and very comfortable and clean. It is 2 levels, so if you are on the ground floor you can park right outside your room, and there are pot plants in the garden making it look very pretty. The staff were very helpful and nice. We had a one bedroom apartment with a deck and table. We loved sitting there for breakfast. The dishes were done and the room made everyday. The kids got hot in their room overnight so we told the gentleman in reception and he bought us and extra fan. There are no fly screens or air condititioning but nowere in Paihai seems to have them. The wifi was excellent with no complicated login.

The hotel is just 10 mins walk from ferry and bus stop. The host helped us to book boat trip, after confirming with the company. The one of previous day was cancelled due to bad weather, luckily we can sail to the hole of the rock!

it is near the sea, about 10 minutes walk to the city centre..

it was nice staying there..me and my family stayed there for 2 days during our holiday..would not say the room is small because we asked for an extra bed, so, it did take away some space.. one thing i have a problem with though is the bathroom..the bathroom is like the same level with the room (which most place in new zealand seems to be like this), which cause the water from the bathroom to sometimes flow out onto the carpet of the room..other than that, i am happy with the place..
