A mix of good and bad”

Good:Super location at entry to Paihia. Short walk to beach. Close to Alfresco possibly one of the better Paihia Cafes. Bad: Motel unit was old but clean with renovated bathroom. No kitchen bench/sink; tiny TV. The worst of it was the incredibly loud pub/backpackers over the back fence with a band and outdoor yelling area that went till 3am on Friday night and nearly the same on Saturday night. Not a relaxing sleep-filled stay!!! Would not stay there again. I need my sleep!

Dear Richard Thank you for your review and feedback we really appreciate it. Your stay was in one of our Compact Double / Petite rooms which have tea and coffee making facilities only. You will be pleased to learning our televisions have recently been upgraded. We apologise that on the nights you stayed unfortunately a property on an adjoining street had loud music playing. This matter has been discussed with the relevant business owner by several moteliers in the locality. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again - perhaps one of our Deluxe Studio units would be more suitable if you wish to cook within your room rather than use our barbecue facilities which are adjacent to our year round heated pool. Wishing you a prosperous 2018. With kind regards The Team at Edelweiss Motel, Paihia, Bay of Islands

A typical beach motel Great service”

Close to all the action on the beach front but away from the noise.

Our room was rather small, but very clean and reasonably well appointed. Self catering facilities were very basic. Motel management were extremely friendly and helpful. A heated pool, spar and BBQ area are available. Located in a side street, this motel is just a short walk away from restaurants and shops.

Location, staff and room

It was a fantastic place to stay. Only 5 mins walk from the beach and 10 to the town but there are restaurant all along the road. So many choices. Staff were so helpful and even gave me a lift to Waitangi and I then walked back. The room had a min kitchen which saved me some money during my stay. I would really recommend here to friends as it was such value for money.

No value for your money ”

The motel smaller than the photos. The bed is right next to the bathroom which is very annoying. Although the tv has 50 channels but there's nothing to watch- all the good channels are not subscribed to. The location is on the most busy road and the entrance is sloped down so you must be very careful. The house keeping wasn't finished when we arrived due to the unarrived sheet. The sofa bed is very uncomfortable.

Dear Yu-Ping, Thank you for your review. We are sorry that your stay was not to your liking. Edelweiss Motel Paihia has Sky Guest Select which provides over 50 channels of television viewing, including full access to Sky Sports, something we know many guests enjoy. We do not have a subscription to Sky movies as we have found most guests travel with their own movies in these modern times. We have a DVD library available at reception. We always take guest feedback seriously and thank you for taking the time to provide it. With best wishes, The team at Edelweiss Motel Paihia

Hi Caroline, Thank you for staying with us, your review and feedback. Air conditioning is nowhere near as common in New Zealand, as your home country of Australia but it is something we are considering in our longer term plans. There are very few motels and hotels in Paihia that have AC. Thanks for the suggestion about the couch in the Deluxe Studio with Balcony room. Hope to see you again soon.
