3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2012

Not a great stay although we had a reasonable price for this popular tourist resort.
To be fair it is in a good position, only a short walk from all amenities and the room was clean. However, our room had 3 beds which made it very cramped.The decor was dated and there was little if any soundproofing.The maid was cleaning the room upstairs very early and woke us up before we were ready. The TV remote didn't work and the fridge was a little smelly. Probably wouldn't stay here again.

This is a 3 star hotel in Paihia...a beautiful coastal town in the bay of Islands. The hotel pricing is good value for money($90/night at a peak February weeekend)...rooms sleep three and are not flash, but adequate and in keeping with it's star rating. It is centrally located (without views) and has the usual facilities of restaurant, swimming pool etc.

Rates seem cheapest when booked directly with the hotel, but wotif and needitnow also have similar room rates.

We loved the Bay of Islands and were happy with the Hotel. It's very good value for money as you are not paying a premium for a top location. The walk into Pahia only took a few minutes and Pahia has some wonderful places to eat. The only downside was that the room was so hot so if anything the only thing the Hotel could do to improve things is to install air conditioning.

Myself and a group stayed here for a week over the new years break. I had a good experience with tanoa hotel, they were easy to deal with from the start in terms of bookings etc, we paid $140 with 3 people in each room, and the rooms were clean and tidy, and situated a short walk to the centre of paihia, we walked to town several times a day. The pool and spa pool are great and we enjoyed these facilities alot. there is an in hotel washing machine and dryer set up which is handy and it costs $2.

The family had a great time at this motel great walking distance from town and rooms are very clean and staff helpful.
We didnt get enough time to sample the food in the resturant (indian food) as we were there for a weekend.
I would come to this place again no problems value for money and not on the busy side of town.
My only concern is it was a little hard to find and it would be a disadvantage for tourists having to search for the motel.

Room Tip: Get clear directions to find the place as it is a bit tricky.
