Bayview Motel

2 Bayview Road Corner Marsden & Bayview Road,, Paihia 0247 New Zealand
The best location!!! On the picturesque waterfront and one of the closest motels to the town centre, Bayview's waterfront units offer fantastic sea views overlooking the nearby islands. A superior aspect offers all day sun. Bayview has a range of large yet cosy and comfortable units, each with full kitchen facilities. They are serviced daily and are renowned for their cleanliness. Credit cards are not debited immediately,but only during the 7 days before the day of arrival.
