The hotel is located just across the street from the beach: 30 meters from the ocean (and a kayak rental co.), within easy walking distance of many restaurants, and close to bottle shops. The pool and spa were clean (and the pool was actually warm). We had a deluxe studio room on the bottom floor. It was very clean with...

As everyone else has mentioned - the motel is immaculate (inside and out). The kitchen is well appointed and served our breakfast needs. We used the BBQ one night as well. We loved eating our dinner outside by the pool. The beds and bedding were excellent. The room layout worked really well with our children in the bedroom with the...

Wonderfully clean and well equiped room. Great laundry and friendly friendly staff. Pool was very refreshing. Cafe bar next door is great for meals. Thanks Aileen, yours is the first place we will try when we return to the Bay of Islands.

Very clean, spacious and at the quiet end of town. Great pool and laundry facilities. Beautiful views. An easy stroll into town for restaurants and ferry to Russell. Welcoming and helpful staff/owners. Highly recommended. Especially the two bedrooms for families.

Room was very clean and modern and a good price, great view, we went to sleep contented. Problem was we were woken up numerous times by " yobs " and a girl shrieking...

Hi CWA52 Thank your for your review. We are very sorry your night was interrupted by inconsiderate people across the road, we tried our best to get noise control and local police to move them on. We agree it is a great shame that a few have to spoil our beautiful location. But we are truly lucky that most of...

Great location overlooking the beach, the place was spotless and cleaned every morning which was lovely. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. We made use of the BBQ facilities one evening everything you need is there. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Our room looked straight at the beach, plenty of space in room, very clean, located in great spot not far to main street. Close by (with car) to many of the attractions around Paihia. We loved it and hope one day to get back there and would stay at same motel.

My wife and I enjoyed a very comfortable stay with Denis, Aileen and Coral, who could not have been more helpful, thank you. We stayed for 4 nights after I was released from Whangarei Hospital, where they had fixed my broken ankle. Our accessible unit was spot on, well located for us zooming into town in my wheelchair! Thanks again.

We stayed for a few nights whilst we explored the Bay of Islands. The room was clean and well equipped with a large comfortable bed. We had the room next to the reception which tended to be a little noisy in the morning. If you want to avoid noise I suggest you ask for a different room. The upstairs rooms...
