Situated on the sea-front in Paihia and on the level, Busby Manor is the ideal location for a holiday. But the location is not everything, The staff are great and the manager, Sharon, could not be more helpful or friendly. She is a delight to deal with. The units are self contained and spotless. Shops and restaurants are within easy... More

Great place to stay. Very close to everything. Sharon the owner was wonderful, very welcoming and extremely helpful. At first we were suprised at the lack of air conditioning, however the sea breeze every night made it unnecessary.

We stayed in a one bedroom unit at the Busby Manor in March and had a great time. Excellent location right across the street from the beach and walking distance to most Paihia stores, restaurants, bars and the Paihia wharf where many of Bay of Islands tours leave from. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Office staff can book tours... More

Good location. First night a bit noisy (?) - as right across from Beach. Very close to shops etc.etc. Staff friendly and helpful but keen to depart on time and indicated that to us, to put pressure on us! We requested a 2 bed unit but unavailable. Was told the Lounge had a pull-out bed instead - but quality of... More

We are so glad we stopped and made an accommodation enquiry here a few weeks ago. We were on a road trip and were struggling to find somewhere decent to stay. The manager was incredibly efficient and friendly - and the apartment we were given was superb!! Extremely clean, well laid out and quiet. We were able to book some... More

Busby Manor is really well located opposite a safe and clean swimming beach and within a short stroll to the shops and numerous restaurants. Golf courses and bush walks abound in the local area too. Local islands and trips are easily accessible via ferry and coach. The accommodation is clean and serviceable with all the amenities required for a self... More

Good clean, comfortable and fresh units, good for self catering. Great selection of restaurants nearby and easy access to so much to see and do in the greater Bay of Islands. Swimming beach just across the road. Staff helpful and friendly.

We have just returned relaxed and happy after 2 weeks at Busby Manor, greeted by knowledgeable, friendly staff, the unit was spotless and well equipped for visitors who like us generally eat at "home", but close by are plenty of classy restaurants for eating out. Across the road from the beach and safe swimming, plus and easy stroll to the... More

Like my parents before me, we return each year to Unit R, a two bedroom upper level suite, with sweeping views of the Bay. It is comfortable, spacious, well appointed, yet unpretentious, with all the amenities needed for a self contained holiday. One king size bed, the other b-room has twin beds (which can be configured as a second king),... More
