Levin, New Zealand
Reviewed 1 February 2014

I found this motel very clean and tidy and Phil and Maureen were excellent hosts. Going out of their way to be helpful. The unit was kept in an excellent condition. Pauline and myself stayed for 5 nights and were really pleased. The location is great within easy walking of town and ferry and information centre

We recently stayed at the Swiss Chalet Lodge for one night, and we wish we had had the opportunity to stay longer. Our room was lovely, nicely appointed and fully fitted to cater to our every need.

Hi Illanit, thank you for such a lovely review. You are right - it is better to stay more than 1 night in Paihia, there is so much to see. The Treaty grounds are lovely and very interesting as you know. We would love to have you stay with us again.
