Breakwater Motel, Paihia
Great hotel in a wonderful town
This is a very nice hotel with very high standard. It is perfectly located within easy walking distance of sight seeing, shopping and restaurants. The lady in the reception was very friendly and helpful, Recommended!

Very enjoyable stay!
Very pleasantly surprised! The only downside is that the Wifi I could have been better. Staff were very helpful and responsive to any need we had. Would stay here again.

We had a good stay here, I walked by some other hotels while we were out sightseeing and I do wish this place had a pool because I was a bit jealous at the fun other guests were having at other resorts. That said, I really can't fault the place for much, it was a decent room, very nice bathroom, the room was clean. Short walk to a town playground which is nice if you have children.

Rudest customer service ever!
There is no wifi. When I complained about this I was berated.

Great location for a relaxing break.
We had a great time at the Breakwater motel. Unfortunately we were on a tight schedule and so only stayed 2 nights. The location is great, just a short walk to the wharf and restaurants and shops. Walk just across the road for the beach and swimming. Well equipped very clean with nice decor.
