Living area spacious however. If a little dated, everything clean and well appointed. One block back from Waterfront and shopping centre about 300 yards away, so easy...

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...
