Booked 2 nights for my birthday. Didn’t get to sleep due to rowdy neighbours stomping up and down the stairs till 2am, and their friends visiting in noisey cars. Called night manager phone not answered. In hindsight I should’ve booked one of the waterfront rooms but that was an extra hundred dollars. The staff were nice.

This place needs a serious clean! We stayed in 2x rooms and both were dusty, dirty and gross. It is very outdated, shower in 1x room was great and then the other was barely spraying water. Mould in the bathroom and outside on the balcony. They ask you to help the environment buying hanging up towels to avoid them washing and replacing them, which we did. Yet when we came back after exploring we had fresh towels.... Seems pointless ~ especially since the spa was closed due to water restrictions?!?!?!!!! Staff are nice and polite so that is a bonus Close to town which is another bonus!

Being a post Covid visit there were a few restrictions in the hotel but it’s always great to get up to Paihia. Room was great, beds super comfortable and front desk gave us service with a smile... not our first stay and definitely not our last.

Hotel is more like.5 star accomodation, is is dated and just looks dirty.... pool was closed and we were not informed of this in advance evenntho i spoke to them the day before we arrived..... Went to get drinks and food in the bar to be told that the menu had been changed that day so only 4 options to choose from... the place was packed and yet they do yhis??? Restaurant staff are rude and just shouldnt be there.... Looked like they had never vacummed behind the door either.... Extremely disapointed and not worth the money at all... very gtotty and wpuld not recommend this place at all......

The junior suite was a good size but very bland. Could do with a bit of decorating to give it some life! The staff were all very helpful.
