We stayed here for two nights during our NZ trip from Australia. On checking in staff were friendly and helpful. Parking was available undercover. The car spot was a good size but the manoevering to get in the spot was a little bit tight. A small car as we had- should have no problem at all. All rooms are upstairs.... More

The Austria Motel is an inexpensive place to stay in Paihia, and it isn't fancy. The furnishings and decor are dated, the fixtures aren't modern, and the walls are thin - so noise from the adjoining rooms was a bit of an issue. But it's clean and located very close to the wharf and to shops and restaurants in the... More

Really a back to the 80's motel with a shower/ shub that is low ( you have to bend to let the water on your hair) and low water pressure. Two rocking chairs to sit in and an old fashioned bed cover.
