And better than all the rest. The Inn is charming and unique. It has been lovingly restored with great attention to detail. It combines old world elegance with a modern flair. The location makes a great base for day trips to Cape Reinga in the north and the Waipoua forest on the west coast. The many beaches in Doubtless Bay... More

It has been wonderfully restored with quality fittings and has the added bonus of a charming garden, good WiFi and excellent tv reception. Nothing was too much trouble for Jean and Gary, our hosts. We had meals out in the local cafés and explored the area... More

Such a beautiful little hotel on the waters edge in one of best areas of NZ. Faultless. Will recommend to all my friends when visiting Doubtless Bay and the Far North region. Heritage + modern requirements.

But it was perfectly appointed and we had no complaints on its size. The two chairs an added bonus as we enjoyed our breakfast while... More

A quick trip to mangonui turned out to a highlight staying at the old oak. Beautiful large room with a secluded garden setting out back. Bed was as comfortable as home. Quiet, restful , and a minutes walk to the shops...highly recommend. Jean the hostess is very charming and helpful. And do try the Indian restaurant next door...nom nom.

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
