The best location!!! On the picturesque waterfront and one of the closest motels to the town centre, Bayview's waterfront units offer fantastic sea views overlooking the nearby islands. A superior aspect offers all day sun. Bayview has a range of large yet cosy and comfortable units, each with full kitchen facilities. They are serviced daily and are renowned for their cleanliness. Credit cards are not debited immediately,but only during the 7 days before the day of arrival.

We were a large family gathering with small children. The weather wasn't that cooperative for our BBQ. The host was helpful in arranging a space and encouraging us to gather out door furniture to make a successful evening. Rooms basic but clean and tidy. Beach across the road.

Would highly recommend booking with this provider. Honest and understanding when travel restrictions affected our plans and provided us a refund. However my advise would be to book directly with them as Agoda (who we booked with) makes it too difficult to obtain refunds via the app.

We stayed with our 3 children in a one bedroom apartment. Had a glimpse of the water. Really enjoyed our stay. Rooms were kept very clean and everyone was very friendly and helpful. Next time we would love to stay in the apartments at the front which have full sea views.

Terrible internet so don't count on it. Good view and nice room. Plenty of room and very clean. Lots to do in the area. Walking distance to lots of restaurants and shops. But bring your own data with you.

Stayed here for 3 nights and found the motel a pleasant place to stay. We booked a sea view room and found the view from the large veranda fantastic. Our room was clean and spacious with a large comfy bed. The facilities in the kitchen were excellent and enough items to make our stay very comfortable. The town is just a short stroll away where there are plenty of places to eat along with the ferry ride to Russell. Overall this was a great place to stay and would stay again if in the area.

Stayed here for one night and found the rooms to be large and spacious. The bathroom was super clean, tea and coffee is provided as well as shower gel. Would love to stay longer next time, about 5 min drive to the Waitangi Treaty Grounds. Check in time is until 8pm

This is our third visit to Bayview. We love the location, the facilities, friendly helpful staff & the reasonable price. We love the front rooms with ocean view. The rooms are all clean and serviced well. Will definitely be back again soon as we love Paihia. "We must be nearly locals now!"

We had a four night stay at the Bayview and we were very pleased with the accommodation. The location was excellent with a short, easy walk to beach, shops, restaurants and the ferry. The room was generally clean and comfortable and had a good layout for our needs and included everything needed for self-catering if wanted. There is also laundry facilities on site. We were also pleased that we were allowed to bring our small dog with us and he found the room comfortable too. The host and staff were very friendly and helpful. On the maintenance side there were a couple of light switches that were a bit wobbly that could probably due with being changed soon and we felt that next time the curtains are replaced might be an idea to go for black out versions as street lamps and car headlamps from the road tended to shine into the room. Didn't bother us but might for some (especially with younger children). Overall we had a very good stay and would certainly consider staying here again on future visits to Paihia.

A nice, homely and comfortable place to stay that perhaps needs a littleTLC. We always stay here when we go to Paihia because it is walking distance to town, restaurants etc. Staff are helpful and friendly.
