    Property condition


    Basic motel close to shops

    This motel has basic facilities and will work for those looking for convenience and value for money. We found the place damp and cold. One of the rooms had mouldy curtains and smelly bedspreads. The walls were very thin and we could hear the neighbours moving about. We had to sleep with earplugs on.

    Stayed 3 nights in Jul. 2017

    4/5 Good

    Family comfort 2 bedroom apartment

    Great proximity to the wharf and main street. The kids had a trampoline to use and there is the primary school playground and oval to use after schools finished. No oven just a cooktop but the facilities were all good if you didn't want the expense of eating out.

    4/5 Good

    A nice friendly place to stay, great location handy to everything


    Our three night stay in Paihia

    This Motel was very conveniently located with easy walk to the waterfront and facilities. Motel was basic ,functional with off street parking


    Very dissapointing

    The photos of this motel are deceiving. Our 2 bedroom 'apartment' was very dated and small. It certainly looked nothing like the photos. The carpet was dirty and in poor condition. The curtains were in very poor condition and the ones in bedrooms had what appeared to be a cigarette burn in them and had mold all through them. The kitchen and bathroom were clean. We felt this motel was very shabby and overpriced and we were not happy to stay there. We checked out again and we're given a full refund. I would never stay there again. We went across the road and got a lovely room which was cheaper.

    Pros: Nothing, except they did give us a full refund when we refused to stay

    Cons: A complete overhaul. Either that or price it accordingly
