Positive Reviews

Excellent location in Paihia

With its position on the waterfront in central Paihia, guests are thrilled with where the hotel is located. As well as being a short walk from local restaurants and shops, the property is just five minutes on foot from the beach.

Outdoor pool is a hit

The outdoor swimming pool is spotlighted as one of the main bonuses of staying at the hotel. With picturesque views and comfortable surrounding furniture, the pool itself is described as refreshing and well-kept.

Service at a high standard

Guests are complimentary when describing the customer service they receive from the hotel. From the front desk personnel to those working in the on-site restaurant, the staff members are found to be hospitable and cooperative.

Negative Reviews

Wi-Fi situation a letdown

The Wi-Fi at the hotel is criticised by travellers. It is said that the property only provides a small amount of free data each day, with fees applied for those that want to use the Wi-Fi for more than the set amount. In addition, the Internet service is found to be slow and spotty.

Lift not provided

While a number of beneficial facilities are provided, the hotel is missing out on one notable amenity: a lift. As the property doesn't contain a lift, getting to rooms on the higher floors can prove tricky for those bringing heavy luggage or suffering with mobility issues.

Noise a concern

Visitors note that noise can be a disadvantage of staying at the hotel. Along with what is thought to be thin walls allowing noise to travel between rooms, the external clamour of vehicles and tour buses parking up nearby can also be bothersome.
