Very friendly and courteous gentleman welcomed us and room was fantastic in a wonderful location top marks all round !!
Excellent value,very clean and only short walk to Paihia centre. Lovely warm welcome.
Nothing to dislike.
the room was massive, clean, loved the giant bath tub, the staff are all friendly people and willing to help, within half hour of being at the hotel the reception staff had booked us into a tour around the bay for the next day, very helpful. the location is a little back from the beach but everything is close by and in walking distance! we will be back!
Friendly staff. We were also upgraded at no extra charge.
Noise in the early morning
convenient for bus and ferry, friendly and helpful staff, clean and comfortable.
Pauls level of service was excellent. He made us feel very welcome and was very helpful
So close to the town, harbour and tour offices FREE Wifi with a sensible usage policy. (This is the way it should be in 2014 people!) Clean & comfortable accommodation, with very friendly staff. Granted it's 'just a motel' but I think it really contributed to our stay in Paihia being so amazing.
manager was very helpful in securing us a place for the following days in an area basically 100% full due to a festival.
Good location - close to shops and waterfront. Comfortable apartment - good facilities, very clean. Good value for money
Very friendly and clean.
Internet didn't seem to work.
Everything was perfect. The spa bath was a highlight for the whanau.
Everything was perfect.
Host, Paul, was extremely helpful and generous. Chocolates on arrival were much appreciated and enjoyed. Could walk to shopping area and waterfront.
Would prefer to have numbered car parks to match units.
The location was near many excellent restaurants. After a bit of miscommunication, the manager went out of his way to make our stay pleasant. He gave excellent suggestions about things to see and do, restaurants, etc.
Nothing not to like.
Nice studio apartment, clean, comfortable & good size. Great service, friendly host. Central location, short walk to wharf & shops.
Pleasant. Excellent location. 10 out of 10 for cleanliness & suitability.
Close to town, walking distance to most things. Motelier was very hospitable even on the day of our departure allowing us to leave our car parked whilst we did some sight seeing etc.
Pillows were very uncomfortable.Rubbish from previous customers left under sink even though we had confirmed a check in time etc.
We spent 4 days. The room was very clean, and good value for money. Paul, the manager, is a very nice, and very helpfull. For sure, if we go back to Paia, we will go to this place ! We recommend !!
Value for money with good location
A last minute booking, arrived late. Place was immaculate. Wish we had been staing in paihia longer. Was very central.
Perfectly located within walking distance for shops, harbour and the RSA club where we had excellent meals.
The Motel would benefit from updating but this does not reflect on the quality and value for money.
Walk to waterfront and ferry to Russell Kitchen fully equipped Good value for money Helpful host
Everything was great the staff location the owner Paul just couldnt help u out enough everything about it was just awsome
We thought it was a good place to stay and we can recommend it.
The Dolphin Motel is right in the centre of town easy walking distance to everything. Paul the manager was full of all the local information from where to eat to the best places to visit. Would definitely recommend the Dolphin Motel.
