We had a nice time in this place. We booked a unit with a nice view of the beach. This is a great place if you want to have a quiet time away from the busy area. There is also a nice cafe a few meters away.

We pre-booked a studio unit for 2 nights, and chose the option of an "extra large double bed", assuming it would be king-size. When we arrived we were informed that it was a queen size bed, and told we could upgrade to a larger unit with a king-size bed for an extra $40 per night. We reluctantly paid the extra,...

Lodge has nice views of habour, rooms spacious and clean. Water pressure only average. Have to go to town if you want a drink or meal which is about 5 kilometers away. Parking a bit tricky if you have a big vehicle. Overall a nice stay and would go again.

It is quite a few years since we stayed at Paku Lodge but we are hoping to go back in April 2017. Our memories are very good ones so we are hoping we will make a few new ones. Wonderful place to make it a base for touring the area. It is a short drive out of town, but that...

This motel was in amazing position, close to the marina and opposite the town of Tairua with amazing views. Motel had all the basics - fridge/iron/pots and pans etc- that you would need but the nearest eatery was round the bay in Tairua for evening meal and breakfast etc. Pleasant and helpful owner. Would recommend.

I have stayed in many places in nz, but the service we received here was one of the worst. Whilst the motel is well positioned and room is good, the proprietors could do with a lesson in service. We asked for some additional towels, upon which the lady at reception asked why we need more towels given we checked in...
