        Accomodation very disjointed, room had a damp musty smell. Shower pressure was very weak. Tv not tuned in so we were unable to watch, couch cover and carpets stained and driveway very steep.

        Martin House is an easy (at least the downhill part :) walk to the wharf & ferry and main street (such as it is) in Paihia. The rooms are large and clean with a small kitchenette. Despite the name there is no breakfast. Parking is challenging.

        Very nice and cosy apartment. Only problem is that the address is wrongly indicated via the Agoda website and as a result we had to spend a bit of time looking around. Perfect and unblocked view of the sea. Will definitely want to stay @ this property again :)

        非日常を味わえる時間”

        早い時間に到着したのですが、荷物の預かり、観光の案内等、親切にして下さいました。 帰りのシャトルバスも、飛行機に合わせた時間に予約して頂けたので、荷物を抱えて移動する事もなかったので、とても助かりました。 朝食は、素敵な景色を見ながら、優雅な時間を過ごせました。 オレンジジュースはとても美味しかった! ただ残念だったのは、部屋に付いていたミニキッチンの清掃がイマイチだったところ。 お茶やコーヒーのパックは開封され、溢れていて飲める状態にありませんでした。 また、部屋にテーブルが無かったので、テイクアウェイしたものを食べるのには、不向きな部屋でした。 それ以外は、部屋の設備(特にバスルーム)は、広くて静か。 旅の疲れを癒すには良い部屋でした。
