This motel in Paihia provides exactly what is advertised. It is roomy, with a lovely balcony and all the facilities you could possibly want. It is exceptional value for accommodation so centrally located. From here you can visit Waitangi (close enough to walk), Russell (short ferry ride) and Kerikeri, as well as all the fun to be had in Paihia...

Very good location and services that meet all our needs. The free Wi-Fi was there but the signal strength was poor and variable. Ok to do email, whereas not sufficient to surf the net, especially with the dropout.

We stayed here for 2 nights in March. We hadn't pre-booked anything so we just drove along the streets looking at the motels. Austria motel caught our eye as it had good street appeal.
