Friendly helpful staff,clean and comfortable units. The Bay of Islands is one of the most beautiful places to stay. Only a short walk to the shopping centre and activities for boat tours and bus tours for trips.

Our front unit looking out over the Bay was very comfortable, quiet and warm in the Antarctic blast crossing NZ the first few days we were there. Busby Manor is a delightful small resort with exceptionally friendly, professional staff and management. So close to the activity base of Paihia - just a short ferry trip to Russell with plenty of...

Busby Manor has again been a great location for a lazy winter holiday. The Apartments are exceptionally well equipped, warm and within five minutes walk of central Paihia. Our unit had a great view across the water to Russell. This is a perfect location for either a Winter or Summer holiday

We had a great winter break in Paihia at Busby Manor. Despite the chilly weather we were cosy in our apartment and enjoyed the gorgeous sea views. Great kitchen for cooking family meals, and the showers were awesome too. A bit cold to try the pool but it looked clean and well maintained. Very central location, beach just across the... More

We stay for one week. Great location with easy, short walk to shops, restaurants, beach and wharf. Beautiful view of water from apartment. Quiet apartment, friendly and helpful staff. Easy to find. Room was comfortable and very clean and we were advised renovations were planned for this year.

The roadfront/seafront rooms are excellent - priceless ever-changing view of the sea and small islands. Although, road-traffic (no more than 50 m away) can be disconcerting at some times of the day - might be a bit much in peak season (I stayed in mid-winter). The service is excellent - starting with a very friendly welcome and continued throughout with... More

Amazing place to be. Right on the waterfront, close to everything. A place I would highly reccommend. The staff are nice and polite, great guidance and hospitality from them all.

We stayed here as a timeshare exchange, but when friends arrived unexpectedly, were also able to hire a second room for a few days as you would in any hotel (and at a very reasonable rate.) We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The position of the hotel places you right on the beachfront, with the front facing and upstairs rooms... More
