We stayed at Busby Manor for week. We received a warm kiwi welcome from Sharon (who also helped us sort out some booking issues). The apartment was spotlessly clean, well equipped and warm (very important in winter). This was our first trip to Northland and we will return. Paihia is an excellent centre for most of the key sights. We... More

Just had a fabulous week at Busby Manor. Excellent location so much to do inspirational staff. The walk around the coast from Paihia to Opua a highlight. Dinner recommended by staff at Paihia Resort an absolute sensation.

Another lovely week stayed with our family and Grandchildren at Busby Manor. Just so central to everything, a short walk to the shops and ferry for Russell and a very safe beach across the road. The staff are so obliging, nothing is too much trouble for them, the units and grounds are well maintained. A pleasure to visit on a... More

Busby Manor is a very clean, well equipped resort on a flat situation. It is within easy walking distance to everything Paihia has to offer. Sharon is an excellent manager and goes well out of her way to provide great local knowledge to help make your stay a great one. We took a number of her suggestions, the glow worms,... More

This place is just across the road from the beach. Also within walking distance to town and the Russell Ferry. We had a 2 bdrm apartment on ground floor which opened out into a big community courtyard. The beds were very comfy and very clean. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you needed and the bathroom was quite spacious... More

The accommodation is well located within easy walking distance to all local amenities on a flat section. Our unit was clean and tidy with all facilities we needed. Sharon, our host, was very helpful and made sure we knew about the local attractions and wanted to make our stay enjoyable. We mentioned we would like to go fishing on a... More

Everything is in walking distance, pier, shops, restaurants and bars. Beach is across the road and Busby supply for hire kayaks bicycles fishing rods and golf clubs, no need to bring your own. The units although not over large are ample for two couples and have everything you would need and are spotless. The staff are very helpful and cant... More

This is the second time staying at the Busby and like the central location . We found room to be very well equiped and clean, appears to have been updated recently. The spa was at a nice tempreture, we enjoyed staying here and using this as our base for our break.

Checked in for a quick visit to Paihia. This is just a great location, right on the Main Street overlooking the water, 2 minute walk to the shops. We arrived after a long drive and for one person long flight to get here. We got to the Manor about 1 pm, we were able to check in right away, they... More
