Positive Reviews

Fantastic service

Reviewers say the staff at this hotel go above and beyond to make their guests feel at home. Little extras like umbrellas during rainy weather are made available to guests, and special requests are answered with professionalism and grace. The staff greets all their guests with warmth and smiles.

Secluded location

Guests really like this property's location. Just a bit out of town, the grounds offer peace and quiet. However, guests say they only have to walk about ten minutes to be in the heart of the action. The sea is not far away, and various natural areas are close at hand as well.

Very large, comfortable rooms

Travellers really like how big the rooms at this hotel are. They have no trouble fitting all their luggage into their rooms, and say there is plenty of space left over for activities. The rooms are comfortably equipped with high-quality furniture, good beds, and plenty of entertainment options.

Negative Reviews

Restaurant can be expensive

Travellers describe the hotel restaurant as a bit too pricey for their taste. While the food is good, they feel that there are much better deals to be had at similar venues in town. Many opt for the Paihia eateries over the one at this hotel.
