Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

Stayed in a studio room on the upper floor, very large comfortable and clean. Big shower no waiting for hot water and a 2 basin vanity. Plenty of storage in the bathroom. Comfy bed. Good wifi. Balcony with nice view. The only niggle for me was the fridge made a noise when it turned off but most hotel/motel fridges do...

A great apartment, 2 mins from the beach. We were on the first floor. Spacious rooms. Modern. Clean. Well appointed. Comfy beds. Tea/coffee/milk supplied. The (access walkway) balcony faces the afternoon sun and you can see the sea (if you stand up). Nice chairs to sit outside in the evening.

We only stayed one night at Admiral's View Lodge & Motel and were sorry we could not stay longer. We had a nice room, patio, Kitchenette and bathroom. There was also laundry on the premises. The owner was very helpful and friendly. It was about a 10 minute walk to the main part of town where there were shops and...

Awesome hosts and perfect place - great views, comfy room and amazing hospitality. Paihia has a great feel to it and definitely recommend Charlottes on the hard for dinner - great setting and beautiful food.

We had an excellent good sized room, including a balcony with a sea view and a jacuzzi in the bathroom. Cooking facilities including microwave, hob, kettle and fridge make self catering very easy. The owner was friendly and helpful, advising on restaurants in town and other attractions. He had bicycles available to use free of charge. We used these for...

We stayed in the Studio Balcony Apartment overlooking the bay. The room is generous and well equipped. It is very clean with top quality toiletries an added bonus. We would highly recommend Admirals View.

We recently stayed at this motel while visiting Paihia in New Zealand and our experience was excellent. The room had ocean view and was a bit off the beaten track to give us a very quiet and relaxing stay. A barbecue and usage of bicycles at no extra charge added to the value of this stay. The owners and staff...

We had the suite next to the reception - it had a small kitchen and washing machine in a utility room, which would be good if you want to self-cater and are spending time on the beach. However as we were only there for Waitangi Day, we didn't want to unpack our suitcases, so the only way to avoid this...

Thank you for taking the time to place a review. The Garden rooms are smaller and we suggest if you prefer space to book the more spacious options of the Ground Floor or Balcony Studios. If you are thinking of coming to Paihia for Waitangi Day we suggest booking well ahead, we are already heavily booked for next year's event!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Friendly 4+star self-contained and serviced motel in a central location. Relax and enjoy the view to the sea from the sunny balcony or patio of most units. Admirals View Lodge is well located for walking to all your Paihia activities and attractions - plus tours pick up daily from the motel. We are close to the Paihia beach (only 1 block, 250m) but benefit from a peaceful location away from Paihia's main road. Let us help you plan your trip to see the Bay of Islands and the famous Hole in the Rock. Take a bus on an exciting journey to Cape Reinga or enjoy the thrill of swimming with dolphins. Enjoy a ferry ride to Romantic Russell or soak up the history at Waitangi Treaty Grounds. ... more   less
