Ash Grove Motel
Ranked #26 of 43 Hotels in Paihia
Reviewed 29 February 2016

The staff is really nice and helpful, I called at 5pm to say we would be late for check-in and there was no problem at all, they left us the key to the room in an envelope. The room was quite big, we had everything we needed. It was clean too. It is located a few minutes away from the city making it very quiet at night. Our room opened on a garden where I was able to play ball with my daughter. They have a great movie selection for parents (and older kids) to watch when the young ones are in bed.
It was very hot when we were there, and there is no A/C. They do provide with a fan, but to my opinion it is not enough. We tried to keep the windows open but many bugs came in at night being attracted by the lights, so we closed them. The pool had leaves at the bottom the first day we spent there, but was cleaned after that.

Room Tip: Ask for more than one fan, if possible !

This is an older style motel but with generously sized rooms and good facilities. The kitchenettes have everything for self-catering. The bed is large and comfortable. Rooms have a patio or fenced area for enjoying the afternoon sun, and a couple overlook the pool. The staff are very friendly and helpful with good recommendations for places to visit and to eat. There is a laundry available for guests. Wifi is free. The motel is not walking distance to Paihia but it is only around a 10 minute drive so still very close. However, the distance from Paihia makes this motel very quiet and peaceful.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool may be good if you want to use the pool...

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights over Xmas in one of the lower units and were war,ly greeted on arrival. Although it's an older style motel it was well appointed, very clean and tidy with a comfortable bed and good TV. A great swimming pool and garden area with a barbecue was easily accessed from our unit. Whilst there was some road noise it was fairly faint but at night the road wasn't at all busy. The motel is well placed close to Piahia township, Waitangi, a good supermarket, Haruru Falls and only 15 minutes from Kerikeri.
We would certainly stay here again.

We really loved our recent stay in Ash Grove Motel. We were very pleased to get a free upgrade to a bigger room. The room was fab - the bed was so comfy & cosy with the electric blanket on; the kitchen area was spacious and very well equipped (plus there was free tea, coffee & hot choc sachets); satellite TV was great & the free DVDs in reception kept us entertained; and the pool area was lovely. The lady we dealt with throughout our stay was very friendly. It's also very close to town if you're in a car. Can't recommend this place enough :)

Location is only a few minutes drive to both the town and the waterfall. Room was clean and spacious and the bed was comfy.
The swimming pool is a great size to relax and cool down and is surrounded by well kept grounds.
