My wife and I drove from Auckland Airport to Paihia as we had a week's timeshare in Busby manor. Reported to be by the sea, we were very pleasantly surprised that it really overlooks the ocean and from my front-facing ground-floor unit, we could just sit there and watch the waves! The facilities at the resort were great and the... More

We stayed in a recently renovated unit, so all fittings and equipment was of a high standard. Room had sea view so on cooler days could still enjoy the scenery.Staff were always very helpful, and the shops and tour departures were only a short walk away. Altogether a very enjoyable stay.

Considering a holiday spot in the Bay of Islands (Northland). Look no further. Busby Manor offers everything for that down to earth family holiday of years gone by. A pool for the kids, spa for the adults, kayaking across the road and yes, bikes available for use. We shall return.

Okay, the first thing 'everyone' will notice is that your apartment is small. But who stays in the apartment when you are moments away from the ocean, all kinds of restaurants and bars, hiking trails, kayoing, waterfalls, parasailing, diving, and a ferry or speedboat to take you to the other 144 islands for more adventures? We had a one bedroom... More

Great location near everything. Rooms average at best. Shower floor was the strangest thing I have seen. About a foot rise off the bathroom floor. Slippery and difficult to get in and out. Walls about the thickness do a piece of newspaper. We had very noisy people and no one cared. No dishwasher. I would try a different option. It... More

You couldn't ask for a better location in Paihia, on the waterfront and easy walk from town and close to several restaurants. The apartments are quite small but everything is in excellent condition including the pool and spa and impeccably clean. The management are very friendly and helpful and have canoes and bikes for hire.

A neat apartment, a comfortable bed and couches, a small kitchen, but well stocked with utensils and home wares. Everything is neat and tidy. The courtyard and pool area are spotless and the lounges the most comfortable I've come across. Our only gripe is the lack of any cooling. The nights get a bit muggy and having not even a... More

Busby Manor was the perfect setting for our family holiday to Paihia. Located close to the town centre and just across the road from a fantastic, child-friendly beach. The units are small but very clean with newly fitted bathroom and kitchen facilities, and contained everything we could want. A old fashioned but very serviceable cot was provided as well and...
