TravelPod Member ReviewsFalls Motel & Waterfront Campground Paihia
We stayed for 1 night in our camper van.
We arrived quite late after a long drive and received a warm and helpful welcome. The site looks straight at the falls - lovely.
We used the small but clean kitchen for breakfast. The showers and loo were OK. We hired a kayak for an hour the day we left and kayaked right up to the falls - great experience.
