My husband, me and our one-year-old twins stayed at this hotel in November, 2012. Upon arrival, it was like connecting with an old friend. Barry had our room all set up and gave us suggestions about where to go / what to see / where to eat. The room was spacious, clean and overlooked a golf course. Inside the room...

The lodge we stayed in was spacious and well equipped. The kitchen/dining area was great, as we were able to do some self-catering and relax after driving and sight-seeing. The shops and restaurants are a 5minute walk away. The whole area is purpose-built for holidays and is quiet, clean and safe. We had a power cut during our stay, which...

Handy location, very scenic. Units are well spaced out and very quiet. When we stayed all the units were occupied but we didn't hear a whisper from anywhere. So peaceful and relaxing. Barry is more than helpful without being intrusive. Units lovely and clean.

Just what we needed, to get away from a busy city life to relax in Pauanui for a couple of days. Barry was so helpful when we arrived, showed us to our unit (immaculate and everything we needed for our stay was available) and showed us places to see whilst in the area. It was very quiet and delightful. Breakfast...

Whilst this was out of season for Pauanui we had a great if very short stay at this property. Barry met us with all the news and some great local tips then escorted us to the unit. The unit was very well set out and quite comfortable. We had a two bedroom unit which was quite clever in layout to...

Great place - a refreshing change from the hotel bit. Barry Fitzpatrick the owner was delightful to work with...very helpful. We enjoyed using the Bar-B and having breakfast self-catered in our room. The dogs were an added bonus! Fun time and central to a tour of the peninsula. What scenery.

This motor lodge is beautiful, in its surroundings, and its accommodations, The cottage we rented in August 2012 was immaculate and very comfortable with a coziness and ambiance that was delightful. Instead of the usual white sheets and towels of most places, they have beautiful taupe towels and lovely soft creamy sheets. We loved it and highly recommend it. The...

In my honeymoon in NZ we arrived late to Pauanui ready to rest in the Pines Motor Lodge with an already booked room. when we arrived, there was nobody there to receive us.
