Nice motel - loved the little units

Enjoyed this motel, lovely setting and quiet. Impressed with the setting and the separate units. A great place to stay. It was nice and clean except for shower corners and window corners needing attention but that’s all. Otherwise one of the best we have ever stayed in! Thanks for an enjoyable stay.

We had a really great stay. Our room was perfect for what we'd requested. We had great facilities in our unit and there is a small outdoor sitting area. The Information folder on Pauanui was very detailed and the Pines staff were helpful and very knowledgebase. Didn't get to enjoy attractive pool and tennis court Considering booking for same time next year to complete our holiday. Extremely quiet and cosy even in a tropical storm.

Great location and accommodation

Was quite hot with no aircon but the cool sea breeze made up for it.

A great find

Pros: Rooms were and despite weather being cold were warm.
Location: The Lodge is close to all shops in Pauanui
We were pleasantly surprised by our one night visit to Pauanui. The Pines Motor Lodge was a great place to stay. The hosts were very helpful and rooms large, warm, and comfortable. We will certainly go back to Pauanui and we would stay again at the Pines Motor Lodge.

Filled the bill

Pros: Good location, across road from the town's small shopping centre.
Cons: Overpriced for time of year. 90% of homes at Papanui seemed unoccupied - probably holiday homes. Burg hardly humming. Breakfast cafe opened at 11 a.m!
Location: Nice layout. Rather sterile as towns built as real estate projects are. Beach average. Roads in and out tedious. Glad I don't own a weekender there.
We were after an overnighter in Papanui, to check it out, en route between 2 other destinations. Served the purpose.
