9.0 Excellent
Pros: our first motel stay so not much to compare with, town very busy due to the treaty celebrations, this put added pressure on the places to eat in, owners very helpful with suggestions, also assisted with booking a trip on a boat, everything was lovely and clean, the pool was compact but extremely welcome, also was a hot tub not used by us, and a bbq area that we didn't use, but facilities were great
Cons: not so much didn't like but the location is on the way out of the town, so not in the centre of things, also backs on to a street with a student hostel so there is a little bit of noise dependent on numbers there and also it was the treaty anniversary so the place was busy

Pros: The location is good - off the main road, close to the center (although everything is close there!)
Cons: A bit dated property, but clean and neat. All rooms face the courtyard with the cars parked in front of the windows, so if you get a ground floor room it may be noisy. Breakfast very very simple and not much choice. Breakfast only until 10 and if we wanted to stay for few minutes linger and enjoy the coffee it was made clear that we are not welcomed. Not allowed to take mug with coffee to the room either! Not very friendly staff, although polite. Also the "do not disturb sign" doesn't seem to be understood - we were woken up for housekeeping twice despite having it on a door.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Spacious and clean with excellent wifi. Very pleasant leafy location with views of the sea from the balcony. The best value of 16 similar accommodations we stayed in on our trip round New Zealand.
Cons: Needs a privacy (net) curtain as people arriving at the top of the stairs face directly into our room (15). There were no bedside lamps.
5.4 Okay
Pros: The proximity to the the town centre.
Cons: We noticed the marked carpet as we entered the room for the first time. The decor has seen better days. The showerhead was broken and clearly had been like that for some time. No way to stop rear balcony lights shining into sleeping area via the kitchen. Finally the creaking of the structure of the building (of which we were told about at check-in) was far worse than we would have imagined and was continuous throughout the night.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Fabulous location! Clean, easy accommodation! Great deal!
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, clean and well appointed room including kitchen and nicely furnished lounge area. Balcony to sit on for meals or drinks. A real surprise bonus was a complimentary full buffet breakfast at the hotel over the road.

8.0 Excellent

Cons: We didn’t like the wheels on the beds because if you lay down to watch tv, the bed would move really easy to the front.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Proximity to town and entertainment was awesome.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The room was newly updated and clean. We had everything we could need to cook on a stove top with new appliances. We had a one bedroom apartment and there were doors between the bedroom and living room/kitchen with other pull out couch as well as 2 external doors which was nice if you needed space while traveling. They even have bbqs available for use. The location was close to the beach, restaurants and shops within a 3 minute walk. For the price I felt I got a lot more then other places I’ve stayed for more money.
Cons: The bed was a bit firm and you have to be mindful of what you cook as per the guidelines. No seafood, curry, spicy foods anything that can really smell. The place is not soundproof so you can hear your neighbours or those outside.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The motel is great! It was very comfy, clean and big. We loved it there. The location is great, too. There is everything one needs (if all kitchen tools are there and not stolen). ;) It's a great place to stay. Coffee, tea and sugar will be refilled. Good room service every day. Wifi is good enough.
Cons: We checked out one evening before because the lockdown started and there it said we should stay at the same place where we stay this night. So our new host told us we can check in one day early. I told the man (probably the owner of bounty motel) and he acted kind of weird. He told me the area is not safe. When I asked him why he just said: "Well... You hear about things going on there." Obviously he just wanted us to stay in order we must spend the next 4 weeks there... At least it looked like it. It's super safe where we are now! This behaviour of him was very unprofessional and should not happen between people in that business... Three recommendations: - the stove should be replaced because we could not even see if it is still on/which temperature level it is, etc. It's really old - you cannot see the numbers - a bigger caserole wouls be nice - after every checkout it would be good to check if everything's there. We didn't have a cutting knife. It didn't bother us though be ause we had our own in the car ;)

Cons: It could do with blackout curtains , and then air conditioning. We were there on a long heat period. The windows face north south whereas the sea breeze comes from the east, so the units could be hot and stuffy. There was a fan. the brochures in the Guest Information folder were very outdated.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Very close to the beach, location 5 minutes to the town centre and nice room with just a bit of view. Petrol pump was next door to the motel. Few good restaurants and Movenpick was awesome great ice-cream and shakes.
Cons: Greens Restaurant was very stuffy and hot, only one door left opened. Previously they use to open the doors facing the wharf for lovely fresh air, we had to wait for over 30 minutes to get our drinks and dinner was probably over 45 minutes. Didn't enjoy the evening.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: our first motel stay so not much to compare with, town very busy due to the treaty celebrations, this put added pressure on the places to eat in, owners very helpful with suggestions, also assisted with booking a trip on a boat, everything was lovely and clean, the pool was compact but extremely welcome, also was a hot tub not used by us, and a bbq area that we didn't use, but facilities were great
Cons: not so much didn't like but the location is on the way out of the town, so not in the centre of things, also backs on to a street with a student hostel so there is a little bit of noise dependent on numbers there and also it was the treaty anniversary so the place was busy

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Due to the coronavirus panic - the owners were amazing with how the dealt with it, and let us know what was happening in regards to our stay. All queries were dealt with immediately and with a smile :)
Cons: We had booked a room with a spa tub, only to find out when we got there that Paihia was under water restrictions :( We understand the demand for the restriction, but hampered our stay a little bit as the outdoor spa was not operational the entire time we were there.
