Good service

Price, hot staff
Good customer service, and I was treated warmly, however they wanted to charge me $135 (including breakfast) for a corporate rate. I found that they were charging $94.50 on Agoda (excluding breakfast), so cancelled my booking and booked through Agoda. Although it is good to get it cheaper here. I was a little discontented that we pay more through a corporate deal (where thousands of dollars are spent every year) than the general public can pay through Agoda after the commission for Agoda is paid. Otherwise pretty good, and would reccommend as a nice, well priced place to stay in Paihia.

Nice location

Location views hot pool
The best part of this place is the location and views. And we loved the hot pools too. The area next to the pool is also very nice. The hotel is nice and comfortable. Staff was good and helpful. But the menu didn't have many vegetarian options. However the staff n chef tried their best to make something for us and ensured that v don't go hungry.

Tired and outdated
Hotel is tired and too far out of the town of Paihia. We decided to sacrifice our booking and pay for accommodation at another hotel in the township.

Family get-together in great location

Location, value for money, friendly staff
Fantastic weather made this visit with family a great weekend. With the golf club close by, the location is ideal and although the hotel was quiet for this time of the year, the staff were friendly and attentive. The rooms were well maintained and very clean and comfortable.

location, food, golf course close by
We enjoyed our stay but initially we had to have the sheets changed because not only did they look as if they had been slept in, i found a hair on the sheet when i pulled back to bedspread. The sheets were quickly changed after i contacted reception but the new sheets looked exactly the same, because they were un-ironed. I think if you are a 4 star rated hotel , the sheets should be ironed or at least not look so crumpled.

something missing !

The friendly staff The location and the serenity
The staff and location were Fabulous - the pool and surrounding area was great as was the food and coffee - BUT our room did not have a Table - either inside or on the deck with the deck chairs - 3 days of balancing drinks and room service food etched on deck chair arm was not really what you should expect from a hotel of this standard .
