Disappointed with the fact the dining room was closed in the evening but after we had a cooked breakfast we were somewhat relieved! Breakfast was served with pre cooked could not be bothered sausages so we only used it once. Plenty of good places to eat within a few minuets walk from this hotel. We were upstairs with no lift...

We booked in advance; recieved confirmation of of a 2 bedroom unit; only to find the secind bedroom was bunk bed in the living area. The bedding was stained/dirty. Insect and used soap in the bathroom. Unprofessional, unbending, uneducated, unpleasent people in charge. So awful... fortunately Pahia's charms where fantastic & I would total reccomend the Aloha motel

Had ore booked two nights here, through Expedia over new year, turned up to find a note in the window stating it is closed until further notice , and a mortgagee sale sign out the front. The stay was pre paid, Expedia managed to relocate us to bay of islands lodge instead, which was lovely, however Expedia is still taking...

We booked this place well ahead of time. At first we didn’t get any confirmation and after a few email attempts I decided to call them (from Australia) and a woman answered the phone and gave me a confirmation number, telling me that their Internet is not good. I believed her... It seems the place went down and was “Managed”...

I was not happy with this hotel and when I complained I was sent a really offensive email back. They don't care about customer satisfaction and if I were you I would pay the extra money to stay somewhere nice. If you are not happy here you either like it or lump it. the hotel room stinks, the fridge is...

We had booked a cottage here, but when we arrived and were allocated our cottage we found someone else's car in the only parking for this cottage - after a bit a woman came out of a nearby cottage and moved it into another empty cottage's park - there was a lot of loud music coming from the cottage she...

We didn't stay here in the end. We arrived around 2:30pm, rang the bell, walked around the office, tooted the horn and finally someone came out... Totally drunk and they had been relaxing in the pool! We got our key and drove round the corner to our cottage to find our neighbours getting ready for a party and all wearing...

While our room was perfectly fine there were many things that could be improved. Reading the hotels information booklet just highlights even more that they don't have the time. We are not interested that you have teenage kids, it's no excuse and as a guest I simply are don't care. For example we bought food to use on the gas...

decent cottage with all the facilities you need. Its near the beach and in a very good location. It was very comfortable, highly recommend if you just want to get away. Location is good because its away from pahia town central.

We stayed here during a recent visit to Paihia. When researching hotels, I was surprised at the high cost of many other hotels in the areaa. The Comfort Inn was reasonably priced in comparision to other places. Given the low price, I wasn't expecting luxury. The rooms and bathrooms were spacious and clean yet basic. The hotel location was about...

“Before you book, try to see who is the operator, is that the owner? We were 2 retired couples and I made a specific note about it, but we got one room with bunks for kids and very little space left in the room”
