Basic but so close to town”

This motel is basic but you get what you pay for & it was really cheap. It is really close to restaurants & the ferry to Russell. It could do with a bit of modernization, better heaters that don't drownout the TV & some outside work (clearing plants away from stairs & fixing dripping spoutings) maybe some Wet & Forget would help.

Yes it was very cheap with all the discounting that the site you booked does,then expect people expect a 5 star property.We are a large property and 29 units and we try to keep costs and tarrifs down for local kiwis after loosing $250,000 through Covid.

BEWARE OF THE SCAM FROM THIS MOTEL!!! PAIHIA IS TOURIST SPOT PLEASE DONT FALL INTO THIS SCAM!”

We booked this motel for a night as our tour going to Paihia. I called the motel that i missed my stuff over there, went back and very shock with the face of the staffs that i believe one of them was the manager of the motel. They start accusing me with asking the way i am living, i already told them i really had a limited time to go back and continue my tour so please give back my stuff. Then they told me that i need to pay extra fees for cleaning. They hold the stuff until i agree to pay the extra cleaning fees which i decline. I was shock, for what? They start to blame and accusing me that i made a mess by showing the pictures, which is; 1. Didn’t clean the plate that we’ve used. 2. Make the towel wet & put wet towel on floor. I start argue with them, i was cleaner as well before and that is NORMAL FOR ROOM BEING USED. They start breach my privacy by ask where i was work and send many text to my partner! Your utensils was rust and the sheet was full of stain?!?! Hollycrap! 🤢🤮

Very nice accommodation in a beautiful location”

location, size of room, kitchen facilities

We arrived in the evening and were offered some fresh snapper to cook on the bbq, which was a wonderful welcome. The room was wonderful and had everything you'd need in a small kitchen. The roof, being made of wood, expanded and contracted and this meant there were loud bangs during the night, sounding as if there was something on the roof which was a bit disconcerting at times.
