Mangonui is a small, quaint community on a beautiful secluded harbor next to the often wild Pacific ocean. We chose this as an base to visit sites in the most northerly end of New Zealand. And it was. The hotel hosts are very caring, very helpful and the accommodations were perfect. Some details include: the "Little Kitchen on the bay"... More

Beautifully positioned, renovated hotel on water's edge. Good access to lovely garden from back rooms and great view from front rooms. Some traffic noise from road for front rooms in the morning but not really a problem. A few minutes walk to all that Mangonui has to offer and a fantastic Indian restaurant next door. Helpful owners. Friendly cat! What... More

We stayed for three nights in the suite and throughly enjoyed our stay. It was a great base to go to the Bay of Islands as well as Cape Reinga and when we returned we could sit on the veranda looking at the bay with a glass of wine before going out to one of the local restaurants. If I... More

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Old Oak when I travelled to the northern part of the North Island on my vacation to New Zealand. Upon arrival I was warmly greeted by one of the owners Jean, who was quick to offer me a room upgrade. She was also very informative on the history of the area,... More

Spent two night here while travelling around on business. All aspects of the stay were very satisfactory with a charming host on arrival and a very friendly Daytime Manger on site. This has now become my regular venue for travelling to the Far North. Thank you.

We chose the Old Oak based on Trip Advisor reviews and were so glad that we did. We had the pleasure of staying two nights toward the end of our seven week trip to New Zealand. We arrived later than expected because we had stopped on our trip from Paihia to do several hikes. Gary greeted us when we arrived... More

Old inn, refurbished into dream-come-true elegance. In fishing village with access to good cafés and sunsets. Peaceful, quiet, beautifully furnished. Nice walking, excellent views, artsy shops. Well managed by Kiwi/American owners.

I have just returned from a fantastic weekend away at this very beautiful place. Located on the waterfront. My balcony was right off the double room. The room was beautifully decorated and thoughtfully put together. We were welcomed warmly by the owners. There was lots of attention to detail. I agree with previous reviews - stay at least 2 nights

We stayed one night at The Old Oak the evening of the Mangonui Wine and Food and Market day. The hotel is a well thought out tasteful mixture of old and new . The situation is perfect if you want to absorb the flavour of this wonderful village on the edge of a habour. The owners are delightful as was... More

Had read about this gem in Mangonui some time ago so when the opportunity presented itself for a 2 night stay we jumped at it. We were not disappointed ! From the time of check in to check out the hosts were understated, helpful and unobtrusive while the ambience was truly inspiring. The refurbishment and attention to detail superb. The... More
