    Cute place with covered parking! Our room was just above the office and when you look at the picture of the Motel, we were on the second floor and had the corner room with the double sliders that came out onto the deck. This room had an AMAZING VIEW and was perfect for our family of 3!!!!!!!!!!!! There were 2 twin beds in a bedroom which was great for our daughter. The staff was very accommodating, super nice and helpful. Everything in Paihia was in walking distance from our room which includes restaurants, shops and tours. I would highly recommend the Swiss Chalet and would stay here again. The two water photos we included are from our room with one being a zoomed in view.

    Good location and room facilities.

    Poor sound insulation between rooms - not good when you have noisy neighbours.

    We stayed at the Swiss Chalet Lodge for 5 days. We were greeted warmly on our arrival by Phil who showed us to our spotlessly clean room. Phil provided excellent advice on where to go and what to see around the area. The room was very comfortable. As it is set back from the main road the room was extremely quiet at night. There is no air conditioning but there is generally a great breeze through the room once the doors to the balcony are opened. A room fan is provided There is heating for cooler months. The room was well appointed with cutlery and china if you choose to eat in. Our room had a shared balcony which was a great place to have a drink after a day of seeing the sites. This is an excellent place to stay for those wanting somewhere close to the beach, restaurants, shops and the ferry across to Russell. All are within a quick walk so you can just leave the car parked in the undercover car park . The RSA does a decent meal and is away from the crowds. Ask Phil for directions. Phil and Maureen can book any tours you may wish to do which is a real bonus. Be aware that Paihia is a cruise ship port so check the schedule to see if any are docking during your stay as the population of Paihia can increase by over 3,000 for the day during the peak season. My advice would be to do the bus trip north on one of those days as the shops, cafes and restaurants are extremely crowded. This was a great place to unwind as you could do as much or as little as you want.
