We had a five day stay, we were given a spacious well equipped suite with a good kitchen and lovely private terrace.The service was excellent there was a good barbeque and washing machine. The pool was very good for a small site. It is a short drive from the town but well sited for the supermarket and waterfall walk.

Great place, quiet and clean. A little way out of Pahia which is great if you want a quiet locale as we did. We had a great individual unit with an excellent outlook and a mini kitchen. Recommend it to all.

We had an enjoyable stay at Ash Grove Motel on a long weekend away in the Bay of Islands. A friendly welcome, large room with full kitchen and large bathroom. All the comforts of home and perfect for a multi-night stay, with option for self catering. The decor in the room is slightly older, but still exactly what you need... More

The rooms are a good size. The decor is outdated. The kitchenettes were a good idea and we ended up using them. Unfortunately there was no air conditioning but there was a fan that was needed. The pool area and surrounding areas need some maintenance on the gardens. The internet was hopeless at busy times.

Thank you for your comments. Since your stay we have installed a new Wi-Fi booster which gives all units high speed internet access. Very few motels in this area have air conditioning however we do provide fans in each unit for our guests comfort. All units are kept in a clean and tidy condition and are refurbished during our annual... More

This was a marvellous place. Nice surprise of a personal small area to sit outside. So clean and tidy. Had everything you could need. We would recommend staying. Friendly and helpful owners who gave good advice.

Booked at short notice, we had the Honeymoon Cottage, very comfortable, but website omits to say that it backs onto the main road, which was very noisy during the day/evening.

This is an older style motel but with generously sized rooms and good facilities. The kitchenettes have everything for self-catering. The bed is large and comfortable. Rooms have a patio or fenced area for enjoying the afternoon sun, and a couple overlook the pool. The staff are very friendly and helpful with good recommendations for places to visit and to...
