Fabulous large room with good kitchen facilities. Beautiful views and a short walk into town. The owner Craig welcomed us with gusto, gave us loads of tips for places to eat and drink and even sorted our boat trip (which was excellent) so 10/10 to this place. Sad to be leaving but more places to see. Thanks for the hospitality

We booked a couple of 2 bedroom apartments for our family trip over the Easter long weekend and had a very comfortable stay. Very friendly and helpful - gave us some great tips for places to go which was very much appreciated.

Stayed 5 years ago in one of 2nd floor room. This year lower floor as more of us... its nice but not luxury. Nice and quiet and near everything you need. Easy walk to town and beach! Bathroom needed some updating. Large but not great!

Booked ahead & Penny was there to make sure we got the perfect room. Admiral’s View is a real gem in this tourist City. Quiet side street but so close to the beach, main town & restaurants. Clean, comfortable with in room kitchen. We had a downstairs under the residence but never heard them above. Penny & Craig are there to help you with loads of information if needed. Thank you for a great stay.

Thank you for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to meet you both and we are glad you enjoyed your stay! Our garden rooms are great if you don't mind the smaller room and very easy on the budget.

The Motel is just a 5 minute walk from the centre of town and therefore conveniently positioned. When arriving by car I would recommend entering Bedggood Close, not MacMurray Road into your SatNav so as to avoid driving round in circles. It is true that there is a partial view of the sea, but it is rather distant so don’t expect the sea to be on your doorstep. The owners are friendly and helpful and the facilities are fine, if some of them are perhaps a little ‘wing and a prayer ‘ at times. All in all the motel is good value for money but we might seek somewhere along the front if we were to return to Paihia.

Thank you very much for your comments. We are set back from the main road and our view is across the village to the sea. The benefit is we are in a quiet location away from the busy state highway that runs along the front of Paihia.
