8.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location with awesome facilities and very clean & comfortable!!!
Cons: Unbeknown to us there was a water shortage which meant the pool could not be refilled. This should have been told/explained to all guests on check-in (but it wasn't) and because the weather was so hot the kids/families had lots of fun in the pool which meant lots of splashing much to the night managers displeasure... Suggest they make it very CLEAR to all guests in future please.

5.8 Okay
Pros: It was clean
Cons: I need of some serious renovations. The shower curtain needed replacing. The duvet on one bed was stained. The kitchen cupboards were damaged. For what we paid I wish we had stayed elsewhere.
7.0 Good
Pros: The room was basic but clean and tidy, the apartment has a nice playground and trampoline for children and a pool at the front. Price was good for what was there. Wifi allocation was generous although signal to room 9 was poor and was really only usable while out the front of the apartment. Staff were friendly and helpful
Cons: Parking is a little strange you just drive around the until you find somewhere to park, allocated parking nearest to the rooms you are staying in would definitely be easier
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Tidy big rooms. Perfect location
Cons: Refrigerator was not keeping my beers cool. Bathroom shower runs really slow. Water coming out is not even enough for hand wash.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent view, peaceful (mostly - some traffic noise), and thankfully away from main chaos of Paihia 'town'. Apartments agìng, but certainly very acceptable. Lovely outdoor pool area. Very friendly and obliging staff. Really enjoyed our stay.
Cons: The spa pool was somewhat 'milky/murky'. Parking a little 'haphazard', limited, and often a distance from assigned unit.
6.0 Good
Pros: The location is fantastic, trampoline, pool and playground for the kids is great as well. Could be a perfect place if cleaned up and renovated.
Cons: The water in the hot tub smelled pretty bad and was definitely not clean. The kitchen and bathroom were very old , barely any water pressure in the shower. The dishes in the kitchen were not very clean. The mattresses were also pretty bad. The room under our room had an outside light that shone right into our bedrooms.
7.0 Good
Pros: Nicely situated. Relaxing views.
Cons: Interior was dated, many things were nearly broken. Wooden stairs would hardly pass safety standards, I would imagine.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Great accommodation, spacious and comfortable with everything you need. Stunning views across the bay and walking distance to the central points in Paihia. This is a beautiful town I wish we could have stayed longer
Cons: Cant fault anything. Just what we were expecting
Centabay Lodge - Paihia - Building

7.9 Good (484 reviews)
Overview Reviews
With a stay at Centabay Lodge in Paihia, you'll be near the beach, within a 5-minute drive of Waitangi Treaty Grounds and Paihia Wharf. Free self parking is available onsite.
4.0 Okay
Pros: It was a central location and the outdoor area is beautiful for summer.
Cons: We slept in a 8 bed dorm. First we were shocked about the beds because the beds of the 8 bed dorm which were shown on the booking looked completely different, so the accommodation used other pictures. (We saw the beds which were shown in other rooms), but it would be great if they may adjust the pictures accordingly in the future. We couldn’t sleep well because the beds were very small, that means that you have the feeling that the top bunk starts just above your head. The room was so tight, all the backpacks are standing in your way because there isn’t any other place to store your backpack except in front of your bed. It was one of the worse rooms. Also it wasn’t clean, we expected way more because of the 8 stars rate which we didn’t understand :/ It was quite dirty, especially in the corners of the rooms and there were many flies in the kitchen/bathroom, that made us feel uncomfortable and it wasn’t appetizing while having dinner. Also we felt very uncomfortable with all the guests, it was a really weird atmosphere and the people where very loud. I booked for 2 nights but went to another hostel after the first night.
5.8 Okay
Pros: The location was quite good, it’s right in the center of Paihia with supermarkets and shops only a small footwalk away. The outdoor area of the hostel was nice as well, especially in summer it’s nice to cool down on the benches and the hammocks in the evening. Plus, the little dog was cute!
Cons: The dorms were way too small for six people, with everyone’s backpacks laying in the way. Also, the rooms seemed very old and they smelled really bad. The lower bed wasn’t comfortable at all, and way too small. It seems like the kitchen and bathrooms weren’t cleaned once during our stay and the kitchen applications could have also been better (only one spoon for like 10-15 people). During our whole stay there was no liquid soap in the bathroom the whole time - absolute no go. The people there seemed like party people, some of them were really loud and unfriendly. Plus, there was an old, unfriendly man sitting in front of the tv the whole day mumbling random stuff. Ugh. Felt really uncomfortable. I think there are better hostels in Paihia...
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I had a really nice and relaxing stay at cents bay lodge. They have a nice “garden” with hammocks and couches where it is lovely to be. The owner tries to make your stay as comfortable as possible and he’s really relaxed:) I can recommend it!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: We enjoyed that they had a balcony with table and chairs we could use for dinner.
Cons: We wanted to use the spa pool but it was dirty so that was a downfall.

6.0 Good
Pros: breakfast was nice and you could sit outside
Cons: bit difficult to get out of the pool with the stone steps
5.8 Okay
Pros: All rooms are separated from the main reception building. Kids liked the pool but it is attached to the reception building so you it’s a fair way to walk if your on the top block of rooms.
Cons: Room’s could do with new carpet or a good clean! Gardens could do with some maintaining. Upgraded our booking to include breakfast which reception told us wasnt included in our booking, sorted this out and she said she would update our booking details. Next morning went down for breakfast to be told that it was only continental and AGAIN they couldn’t find our updated booking details! So basically paid $30 for weetbix, toast and cold coffee!!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The location was great. Big size room and bathroom.
Cons: Housekeeping was a joke. They made up the beds with the same sheets. Didn't put new towels. My kid dropped a box that had sand in it in the middle of the room and they didn't vacuum it...if we had a vacuum in the room I would've vacuumed myself.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Within 10 minute walk on the sea front Friendly and professional reception

Cons: Would benefit from a single ring hob to allow better facilities for those preparing own meals.
6.0 Good
Pros: Close to beach and restaurants
Cons: We booked based on the availability of the pool. On arrival, we found out the pool was unavailable due to water restrictions. We should have been informed about this problem, prior to arrival and a discount applied. On day one and two there was no milk in the fridge. On day 2 we approached the manager to obtain milk. Room was too small, chairs were available but no couch to watch tv. We travel frequently in NZ and overseas and found this room expensive and small for 2 people

Peppertree Lodge - Hostel - Paihia - Building
10
8.9 Excellent (288 reviews)
Overview Reviews
With a stay at Peppertree Lodge - Hostel in Paihia, you'll be near the beach, within a 10-minute drive of Waitangi Treaty Grounds and Paihia Beach. Featured amenities include luggage storage, laundry facilities, and a library. Limited parking is available onsite.
7.9 Good
Pros: We booked two nights at the Peppertree Lodge because of the review of 9 stars, so we had high expectations. Our first impression was good, there were lots of seats outside, which is perfect for the current sunny weather. To get to all facilities, including your dorm, you have to go outside, which is nice in summer but could be a bit uncomfortable in winter. The staff was laidback and friendly :)
Cons: Because of the 9 star review we expected a bit more. Don’t get us wrong, the hostel was good and I would recommend it, but I would give 8 stars. We went to some other Hostels with 9 stars which were more comfortable, currently new renovated and so on. So our impression would have been better without the high expectations. We also expected more of our dorm room because we thought that we would sleep in beds made of wood (there are some wood beds in the hostel, so maybe it was our mistake of the booking, we don’t know anymore). We also saw that some bunk beds in the other rooms don’t have a barrier on the top, this could be a bit dangerous. But anyway, it was a good hostel and nice stay, we loved the outside area! :-)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, room was spacious and clean. Patio area was lovely.

Cons: Towels had stains, not very pleasing to the eye.
7.0 Good
Pros: Close to the beach and all the Paihia attractions.
Cons: Hmm, the bar across the road. we are both lite sleepers so should have asked for a room at the back of property.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were kind and friendly, providing information on the area to help you with your trip. Good sized rooms for the amount of people, with great amenities both indoor and outdoor. Good location as its just down the road from the beach, and only a few minutes to the shops.
Cons: Can't be helped and staff make you aware of it when you check in but bar across the road can be quite loud until the early hours of the morning, even if the hostel itself has quiet hours.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice and newly renovated hostel, very clean and no party hostel. Enough space in the room and power.
Cons: No own parking spots, bit enough space on the road. Wi-fi is very slow.

7.1 Good
Pros: Great location, comfortable beds, good facilities and on site parking.
Cons: We searched for a 5 person occupancy online, but on arrival we're told that it was for 4 people and an extra bed was $15/night or we could upgrade to a better suite for $40/night extra. Don't advertise 5 beds if it only has 4 beds!

Cons: - the pool was cloudy and you couldn’t see the bottom of it. - the decor in the main room wasn’t to my taste and a bit weird with a sheet over the blanket, which was maroon. With that sheet off, it was maroon blanket with black curtains. I prefer a more classic kiwi Bach look.

Pros: We loved everything about the house. Views from the deck were outstanding! The house was well equipped and spacious, had very comfortable beds, and great layout for 4 adults. Highly recommend! Someone in our group inadvertently left an ipad behind. Sasha, our host, graciously forwarded it on to our next destination. She went above and beyond for us.
Cons: My only dislike was that we couldn't stay longer!

7.0 Good
Pros: High spec decor motel, very clean and excellent location.
Cons: The bedroom was back to back with the bedroom of the adjoining unit and I think the beds must have been back to back with thin partition walls as I was kept awake by our neighbour snoring. This was such a shame as other than this I would rate 10/10

9.0 Excellent
Pros: The location and facilities were fabulous! The rooms were spacious and were very comfortable and they had everything in them you would need, the kitchen had a full size fridge, oven, dishwasher and microwave! There are plenty of places to eat out and explore, if this is your preferred option.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Fantastic view from the room and very friendly staff. All the comforts you need from a place to stay - it was just a pity we had to leave after one night! It's a very short walk from the 'main street' but we're talking less than five minutes and it's quite nice to be out of the way of everyone else. We don't have children but there was a good looking playground across the road and a nice enough looking beach.
Cons: Not much to fault! Probably vehicle access into the property could be better marked (hard to work out where to drive in otherwise!); the spas weren't working due to a water shortage in the area which is fair enough, but would have been nice to have known before we had booked & paid for the place as could have been a factor in our decision-making; noise between rooms isn't that great - there was a baby in the apartment beside ours & we were woken up early by it crying.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Our hotel room was spacious with a kitchenette good to prepare some quick meals. The balcony offered amazing ocean views and was big enough for a sunrise yoga session. The spa at the hotel was a real surprise. We enjoyed several services, all of very high quality, by an amazingly friendly staff.
Cons: The internet connection was bad most of the time.
4.0 Okay
Pros: Breakfast was great. This review is for the hotel. I would review the restaurant separately, that was very good with an excellent meal at night.
Cons: Far to expensive for what it is. Thought I was going to a luxury resort, but it was just ok. Rooms very big with separate bedroom and amazing view over the beach across the road - so that was great. Didn't think the rooms were worth the money at all. Shower over bath - yuck. Pool grounds were sparse and soulless - no feeling of luxury to the hotel.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The staff was outstanding and helpful, they mailed a package for me which was very helpful
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful apartment and top location.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The view was amazing. The amenities were exactly what they had said they were going to be. About a 10 minute walk to town if you did feel like eating in their restaurant.
Cons: We did have a slightly leaky faucet in the kitchenette.
7.0 Good
Pros: Comfy bed, big bath, lovely deck with view
Cons: But dated, rooms need a revamp

7.0 Good
Pros: After a couple of previous accommodations being absolutely ghastly, the Dolphin Motel was wonderful in comparison. Easy walk to the shops and other areas of Paihia.
Cons: We had an older style room which would benefit from some updating, but it was spacious and comfortable. The shower, however, was either scalding hot or cold - we couldn't find the happy medium! During the night, other guests weren't very considerate about the noise they made.

Cons: Special request for ground floor not even read until check-in when it was pointed out. My wife had great difficulty using the stairs. Dishwasher out of order. Shower head not secure. Fridge temperature setting temperamental. No blind on door, just lace curtain. Curtain on front window missing runners. Suggest the owner stay in Unit 6 and see for themself.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: The room was spacious, comfortable & kept clean. Location was great for walking to town & local ferry. Parking good.
Cons: Breakfast dining area was disorganised & seemed short staffed. Every breakfast you were always asking staff to top up cutlery, crockery, juice, milk, hot water, bread etc the basics. Tables were slow to be cleared. Maybe giving the staff a tray or trolley to collect in with would speed the process. The few staff were clearly working hard but fighting a loosing battle. The pool was out of use for 2 days. Games room was good but equipment broken & tired. The draught beer was out of use every time we went to bar.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Location
Cons: The morning restaurant staff were abrupt and constantly no cutlery available during peak breakfast periods during my 4 day stay. When asking staff about it they just said it was coming. 15 minutes later still not available. Need a friendly and welcoming team to make visitors feel welcome.
