Good 7.8 From 30 reviews

Very good 8.0
The location was great. Close to the city (walking distance), is located right on the beach, was secluded and very quiet.

This is basic accommodation. We had a clean comfortable room. The place is old but met all our simple needs. The location is a short walk to town. The bus stops outside the Inn and is an easy way to travel the whole island. A big shout out to the manager Chantelle who made every step of our trip simple and pleasant.

Poor 2.0
I had booked for 9 nights but only stayed 1 night. This place is not as they advertise, it is so outdated and in need of desperate repair! Such a shame as it is in a great beach front location close to everything.

Poor 2.0
A very dated old motel that's been run into the ground. No Air Conditioning in a tropical climate makes it impossible to sleep on hot days. The common areas are bleak and run down. Didn't encounter a single staff member in my one-night stay, so it was pretty much a self-service motel.

Paradise Inn has character. A charming wee place, close to town. We were treated with respect from all staff, and enjoyed chatting with fellow travelers watching the sun go down over the horizon.
au2 night trip
Very good 8.0
This dear old Hotel is a bit run down, but its positives far outweigh the negatives. The rooms are large, Beds are spotlessly clean and all sheets, pillowcases etc also spotless. The patio/deck outside is large, with several sunloungers, tables & chairs etc.. It has a nice kitchen/diner for cooking your own meals or for inviting friends/visitors for a meal. You can buy food and wine or beers from the shop next door from 6am to 10 pm. There is a microwave and jug in your room and the rooms 1 to 7 are the larger of this 14 bed hotel. Its cheap and cheerful but has and offers all you are likely to need. Bus at the door. 5 -7 mins walk to Avarua town centre and 4-5 mins from Trader Jacks bar & Restaurant, Vibe cafe also near for breakfast, dinner or tea. Other restaurants, bars and niteclubs close too. I would be happy to stay here again.

Friendly people, basic accom, great spot
They were very friendly and helpful to deal with. The location is great just close to the city. It is quite noisey as the windows are open. It was an older style and not kept very well but you get what you pay for as it was cheap.
