We stayed at the hotel early March 2017. Highly Recommended.

Room 1 was large, clean and spacious with comfortable beds. The center of town is also only a few minutes walk away.

Also special thanks to the kind owners as they gave us a hand when I was particularly sick when we first arrived in the area.

Thank you for taking the time to write. We were very happy to welcome you and help as you did seem quite sick initially. We were also delighted that your recovery meant that you could enjoy some of the beautiful locations and experiences the Bay of Islands has to offer.

A small motel at the southern end of the main road in Paihia. I believe it only has three rooms. Very pleasant without being sensational. Good price for Paihia.

Centrally located within a few minutes walk of the beach, restaurants and the town.

Others have praised the service - it was good but one of the owners was away so I am not really able to add much in this respect.

Thanks for writing a review. We do hope that you will come again so that you can have both owners on-site and see why others have praised the service. A warm welcome is assured.

We have just returned from a 3 month trip and found Paihia Star Motel to be one of our favorite and most memorable stays. The room was very cozy, clean and well stocked and the location was very close to everything. What makes Paihia Star Motel so wonderful however, are the owners. They are kind, thoughtful and very generous and we felt very welcomed and cared for while at their motel. They did everything to make our stay a very special one, for which we are very thankful. I highly recommend a stay there!

Stayed at the Paihia Star whilst travelling with another couple. The 2 bedroom apartment was very spacious and clean, with a good bathroom and well equipped kitchen. It also had the added bonus of air conditioning which no other motels had. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed: February 2016, travelled with friends

This is a small motel with about 3 motel rooms run by the owners who live above.
We had a warm welcome and the accommodation was very clean with all the equipment you might need.
Within 10 minutes walk are Paihia's bars, restaurants and the information centre, boat trips and ferry to Russell.
The rooms at the motel have a large patio door and floor to ceiling window so it does not feel particularly private for sitting out etc.
However the accommodation is fine.
