“Friendly and welcoming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

This very well placed motel was just off the seafront and we chose it for that reason and the vacancy sign was lit. Maureen the proprieter was extra friendly and helpful and even got os a pint of fresh milk because tea does not taste right using the plastic sachets of milk! The room was very clean with a great seventies vibe, but we did find that a lot in New Zealand. We like that and we liked the Swiss Chalet

We recently had to travel North for a business meeting, arriving late we were welcomed by Maureen, she was so helepful, the unit was very clean, Maureen had put some food nibbles in our fridge which was fantastic!
Our meeting ran over so we got a late check out at no extra cost :))

I recomend you stay here walking distance to town, off site parking, cosy rooms, large bathrooms and the shower was awesome, which is very important.
Thanks Maureen and Phill, best hosts

We chose this motel because it had been recommended on Trip Advisor. Originally we were only going to stay two nights but ended up staying three. The unit is well equipped, large, comfy bed with little balcony. There is a spa which was most welcome at the end of a day of sightseeing. Phil and Maureen were very helpful with organising trips etc, Phil even gave us a fresh fish to cook on the BBQ. Definitely a lovely place to stay

This is a smaller style motel with a great location near the seafront: an easy stroll to the main town. Maureen and Phil were very welcoming and very helpful with advice to suit our needs. The rooms (whilst an older style) had plenty of space to move and were very well maintained daily.The bed was really comfortable, the lounge-dining area good, balcony with a view and the kitchen area had everything we required. At the end of the day the spa was most relaxing too. We thoroughly enjoyed our week there and would certainly stay again if in NZ.

This is a fantastic place to stay in Paihia. The location is excellent and the owners are so friendly and can't do enough for you. They helped us arrange trips and had great advice on things to do and the local area, both Paihia and our next stop in Kaitaia.

We had a lovely spacious ground floor room which was very clean with a separate bedroom for the children as well as a small kitchen, seating area and dining area. Everything was great and I would highly recommend this motel.
