My wife and I stayed at the Swiss Chalet Lodge Motel for 3 nights over Easter just passed. We had a studio unit which was very adequate for our stay. Our days were very long due to the vast amount of travel we did each day to see as much as we could, so it was nice to come back...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Swiss Chalet. It is very close to shops restaurants and the harbour. Our hosts Maureen and Phil could not have been friendlier and more helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable \. I would recommend this place to anyone and will certainly stay there again if we are intending staying in Paihia.

What can I say. Good value for money and situated within easy walking distance of the wharf, shops and Restaurants. Our stay in in this Motel was one of the best I have experienced. We stayed 7 nights in the top floor 2 bedroom unit which was a home away from home. Spacious, clean, modern, large kitchen/ dining room and...

We stayed at the Swiss for 2 nights in March in a family room. The room was well equipped with an amazing sea view. The staff were very helpful, arranging our sight seeing boat trip, and even helping us with a doctors appointment for my daughter. I'd definitely recommend staying here.

Charming place. Our room was lovely - comfortable bed, little kitchenette, nice bathroom. Loved the shower! Balcony off the room. Short walk to shops and restaurants. Only disconcerting thing was no barriers and people from the next room sitting out at the same time but I guess most of the places in New Zealand are set up this way. Didn't...

We stayed there in January and had a wonderful time. The location of the motel is perfect, a great base to explore town, the Bay of Island and surrounding forests and country side. The owners were super friendly, gave us great advise on what to see and do, and even made the bookings for us. The corner family room had...

We stayed 4 nights in a studio unit which suited us admirably. Extremely clean and very close to town. Maureen was very helpful and after giving us unbiased information on what was available she booked us on two tours. (Incidentally we ended up going with Explore and did the Cape Reinga and Hole in the Rock tours - absolutely great...

We stayed here for three nights in Mid February. The location is in town and near restaurants and the boat dock. We used this location as our base to see the area. The owner was very friendly and helpful with questions on things to see and do. The accomidations would fall into a two Star based on USA standards. However...
