Our family of 3 travelled to Pahia in January and had a very nice stay in Bay of Islands Gateway Motel. We enjoyed very much in our 1-bed room suite on the upper level. The beds and pillows are great for a good sleep. The bathroom was spotlessly clean. The kitchen has everything for cooking a nice meal, and Sherrin...

We enjoyed 2 nights whilst visiting the Bay of Islands, the room was large clean & comfortable with a roomy bathroom. Kevin & Sherrin helpful friendly hosts couldn't do enough including putting through a small load of washing for us. It was away from the busy main street but easy enough to get to the beach & shops

We stayed 4 nights at this small and very comfortable motel. Our room was spacious with a lovely shower, moments from the beach and a very helpful owner. When we come back to Paihia we would definitely want to stay here again. We loved that it is just around the corner from a quieter bay, and a short stroll not...

lovely motel with modern clean facilities and superb hosts. Home away from home. The beds were very comfortable with nice quality linen. The shower was a very good size with good water pressure. Handy to the beach and a pleasant walk into Paihia centre. Kevin and Sherrin were very helpful and happy to assist.

While visiting from Canada, my wife and I, plus my NZ cousin and her husband, shared a 2 bedroom suite. Prices are quite high compared to Canada, but according to my cousin, the rate was quite reasonable by NZ standards. The suite we had on the 2nd floor was very modern, spacious, and spotlessly clean. The beds were very comfortable...

Our first motel in NZ. If they are all this good we will be very happy. The owners are very helpful and the motel is near a great beach. The rooms are great for those who want to self cater, but there are plenty of eating places nearby if you prefer. Bay of Islands has something for everyone.

Friendly welcome, immaculate rooms, great service, the motel is conveniently situated close to the beach and is good value for money...I enjoyed two great nights there and on my way back from the cape I stayed for a further three nights whilst exploring the Bay of Islands...well worth a visit...

Of all the places that we stayed in, this was my favorite. I was travelling with my parents. We booked a family room, with two beds. The room was spacious, clean and had everything you need to be comfortable. There was a small kitchen to make a basic meal, a dining table, TV and unlimited free wi-fi (which I found...

Awesome hosts, couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. Good location, close to beach, supermarket and treaty of waitangi grounds. Clean comfortable rooms with air conditioning. The only reason I didn't give this an excellent score is because you have to wash your own dishes or get charged an extra $15, we were unaware of this until we were there....

Thank you for your reveiw ,As a reply to the dishes, Our Motel Policy requires all guests to wash their dishes before they check out, As Most motels request the same. All of our Kitchen utensils are checked and cleaned on every departure of guests to a very high standard,I could post some pics of some guests that dont wash...

A lovely motel in an ideal location in beautiful Paihia. Virtually on the beach, walking distance to a good supermarket, Waitangi Treaty house and the ferries to the Bay of Islands. The room was very spacious and clean with everything you need for a relaxing stay. The owners were very helpful in booking trips and advising us on other activities.
