We camped here for 2 nights in a tent and had a great view of the falls. The swimming pool was a great bonus and all the facilities were very clean. There was a BBQ and a small indoor kitchen for cooking but no indoor dining area. We enjoyed our stay and the view from our tent was great.

Accidentally found this gem of a spot when visiting Haruru Falls. Decided to stay overnight with our motor home and were not disappointed. Owners were very welcoming and friendly. Great view of the falls right on the water's edge, clean hot showers, toilets, laundry, power and free WiFi. Also had use of the gas BBQ. Others were kayaking right near...

Room comfortable and very clean. Large windows and door opening onto garden/pool area which are both neat and clean. BBQ facility available near the pool. Great view of the river and falls from the pool area. Hire a canoe and explore the river. Pleasant, cheerful and helpful hosts.

Easy to get to and find, happy and helpful reception Same price as the Kiwi campsite but far better. The pitches are spacious level and most over looking the river and falls. 3 km from the shops. Clean showers and toilets with plenty of hot water. The small kitchen was more than adequate for the size of the campsite. Free...

The hotel has an awesome view of the falls from most rooms, though not ours. The accommodations are two bedrooms with one bathroom and kitchenette. The units are clean but basic/modest. For the price, the place is great. The location is a 5 minute drive into Paihia where most of the activity is happening. The immediate location has kayaking on...

We stopped here recently and were just amazed at the motel unit we had with stunning views over the Haruru Falls and right down the bends of the river towards Paihia. The hosts/owners were very friendly and helpful and nothing was to much trouble to them. A lovely restful place to stay and only 2 minutes down the road to...
