Not our best visit to Paihia
a very basic motel, too many beds shoved into a small area, no wardrobe so nowhere to hang clothes, no heater, air con or fan, had to ask for iron and ironing board, the couch was so uncomfortable and looked shabby although the bed was comfortable we had booked for 5 nights and expected a better room and everytime you wanted wifi you had to ask at office for another code. The only good thing was it was close to the shops and the owner was very nice.

An average place to stay
We were a family of 5 who stayed in 2 separate apartments (a one bedroom and a studio flat) at the dolphin Motel over the New Year period. Although the location was brilliant, in that it was close to all amenities, the apartment and studio was very basic and compact. Unfortunately it didn't even have anywhere for us to store our clothes, which resulted in us having to live out of our suitcases for the whole 4 days that we were there. On a positive the owner and staff were friendly and helpful.
