Check in was very good, We were a walk in reservation. The receptionist was very courteous. Our room was easy to find and was very clean. Lots of parking available. We were offered a happy hour voucher but nothing's to rave about as was only for 1$ off a drink. I would recommend heading into town instead. Only a 10-15min...

This hotel was clean and comfortable also well equipped. The rooms were huge even though there were two double beds in the room. The staff were very helpful. The breakfast was ok. There was a nice outside seating area.

The bedroom is very comfortable with fantastic pillows, a little area with good seating to drink a cup of tea while reading. A balcony on a beautiful exotic garden, well equipped bathroom with great cosmetic.

Before visiting NZ we had never come across the Scenic group of hotels so didn't know what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised. It's very much a motel style hotel but well equipped, clean and comfortable. We asked for and were given a quiet room, it was a bit of a walk from reception but that was no problem for...

After a long drive from Auckland the friendly reception at the Scenic was all we could have asked for. Clean and tidy room, well equipped. A hand with our luggage to a first floor room would have been helpful but two coaches had arrived at the same time and they took priority. Eating from the A la carte menu with...

This resort is a perfect stay for this place. Bay of Island was our second stop in New Zealand and our stay with Scenic was very comfortable. We stayed here for two nights. The resort is in the heart of the town. P.s: The town is not too big so a little walk to the beach or any restro was...

Our experience was amazing at the Scenic hotel in Paihia. It was absolutely worth every penny spent. Breakfast had a good vegetarian spread, Property is clean and peaceful located just a minute drive from the beach. On arrival, the reception staff was welcoming and even sent goodies in our room as it was our honeymoon trip. Scenic hotels provide good...

We stayed at the Scenic for a week including Waitangi day, the high season in the area. While the hotel is relatively comfortable with a swimming pool, large rooms and a relatively acceptable walking distance from downtown, we think that there is probably a better quality/price hotel in the area. It's a place that put a lot of accent on...

The bedroom is comfortable but without air con and if you have been out all day the room is very warm. There is a free standing fan to aid the air flow. The shower is good but little place to put your own items. Similarly there seems to be no drawer space. The breakfast is OK but with the coach...
