We stayed on several scenic beaches in New Zealand, but this is the one I want to come back to! For one thing, many of the beautiful beaches are appropriate for surfers but I want a beach that I can swim in, not just look at, and this protected bay is perfect. Beached As Paihia is just across the road... More

A relaxed and incredibly well located place in laid back Paihia on the Bay of Islands. Great beach ten yards from the door. We stayed in unit 2 on the top floor with a balcony facing the sunrise and recommend asking for that unit. Very comfortable and affordable. Liked it so much we are already planning our return. Take a... More

My stay at Beached As was enjoyable, clean, with friendly and welcoming staff and awesome views! I was impressed with the managers when they had to deal with a disgruntled guest who was rather abusive . I was pleased that the manager came and apologised for the disruption caused by the guest (looks like it was the reviewer below). I... More

On first glance of the hotel, it was above a liquor shop, but it was across the road from the beach so I was not immediately deterred. I parked up and followed the sign to the hotel entrance, up side stairs of building to the hotel. The door bell was broken and I looked around for a sign on how... More

Beached as Paihia is across the road from a beautiful view over part of the bay of islands. The establishment is small and sits over a shop but that did not take away from the location. It is within walking distance to many restaurants and shops, parking is on site and free. The rooms although small had all the things... More

We loved our stay in Beached as Paihia. The room was beautifully decorated with a private balcony where we sat and drank wine while looking out on the Bay of Islands. We were a little nervous when we first arrived to see that it was over the liquor store but everything was arranged for our arrival and we would definitely... More

The room is terrible, very small, no extra space at all, one can hardly walk in the room, extremely small bathroom, kitchen bench top is just in front of bed which is terrible.

For the price of the twin room it meet expectations. Its small (you won't get your suitcase up the stairs, but knew this due to other reviews) and you won't fit your suitcase in the room comfortably. You can hear all traffic, and although the laundry says no use after 7:00pm, it was used every night at around 8pm while... More
