the property is probably overdue for some renovation as it is starting to show its age. however it was clean and comfortable and the owners were attentive to our needs and upgraded us to a more spacious room on arrival. situated out of town ,but within short drive of pahia.

Located on bend in river close to Haruru falls
Motel is right on the bend on the river just after the Haruru falls. Some rooms (1-7) are on a level with the pool and barbecue area - first photo. The upper floor rooms have views over the river and 8-10 have views of the falls from their private balconies.
