No view of the beach

Posted Jul 18, 2015
Room clean and comfortable. Great price. Across from beach,nut no direct view based on how the rooms are situated. Only rooms at the front of the hotel have the view. Otherwise it was fine.

Nice hotel close to beach. Modern & comfortable.

Posted Jul 13, 2015
Pros: I said it all in my experience above.
Cons: Dining table is a bit wobbly. Found a broken glass in cupboard, housekeeping should remove the glass from the cupboard during housekeeping check.
Location: Walk on the beach, take a ferry to Russell, Treaty of Waitangi, drive up to Kerikeri. Plenty to do and visit.
We only stayed for 2 nights. The manager was friendly and welcoming. He briefed how to get to town and places to eat, nearest supermarket all short and sweet. Close to beach and 8 minutes walk to town. Good bathroom amenities and kitchen facilities and SKY TV. Nice to find trim milk in fridge for my tea as most motel will only put blue top and I only drink trim. I like the welcome chocolate - wish there was 4 pieces as we have 4 people staying. I like the heated towel rail which means we can have our towels dried after shower for next day -all nice and dry again and therefore no need to change towel daily. However with 4 people having a shower, it would be good to have an extra bath mat as they get wet and soaked through when it gets to the 3rd person. Beds are comfortable. Appreciate the free WiFi offered. Overall good nice hotel to stay - we are very pleased with our stay.

Thanks to management for an upgrade. The unit was exceptionally presented, clean, spacious and well appointed. It is handy to shops, restaurants and tourist activities. We are seasoned travellers and we will definitely recommend to friends and stay again.

Opposite the beach, modern and spacious apartment.

Posted Apr 7, 2015
Pros: Location is great. Very quiet. Very clean and modern.
Cons: TV in lounge was too far away from couch. Needs to be in the living area.
Location: Heaps of boat tours, 20 mins to Kerikeri, Waitangi cultural centre 5 min walk away.
We loved our stay here. Great location opposite the beach and playground, a short walk into town. The hosts were extremely informative and lovely. Our room was clean,modern and spacious (we had the 2 bedroom apartment). Air con and comfortable beds. Free wi fi and car park. Highly recommend. We also did the half day Hole in the Rock boat tour. Absolutely fantastic. We saw an amazing dolphin play time which was incredible.

Great apartment across the road from the bay

Posted Apr 6, 2015
Pros: The provide milk, tea, coffee (including a plunger), sachets of dish washing and laundry liquid which was really nice.
Cons: Without any tv or music on, you can hear the people above you walking around.
Location: Have lunch at the Pear Tree at Kerikeri. Their garden overlooking the inlet is great place to relax and the food is great.
We stayed in a premium 2bd apartment. This had 2 singles in one room, and a queen in the other with a bathroom (no bath, but a fantastic pressure shower), in between, and a large lounge/dining/kitchen. There is air conditioning, washing machine, dishwasher, large balcony and direct water view. The apartment is clean and tidy. The beds comfortable, and Paihia is a great base for travelling around the island.
