This was a very pleasant place to stay - separate bedroom / lounge, very useable kitchen & spacious bathroom. Short walk into Paihia town & all facilities. No ocean views from most rooms. Sharon very helpful in recommending activities - certainly knew her local area & thoroughly enjoyed everything she suggested. All staff encountered friendly & helpful.

Our last visit to Busby Manor was last summer when the weather was perfect just like the resort. I go with my wife for a holiday away from the bustling city with its never ending demands and noise. Busby is not so far away and is much warmer than Auckland. It makes a welcome change. But adding to its charm... More

We have stayed here just about every second year for many years now - we still love it! Busby Manor is situated just across the road from the beach, very close to the kayak hire, only a few minutes' walk from town, and with views to die for. Watch the ferries, yachts and boats galore going across to Russell. Enjoy... More

We've stayed at Busby a few times and keep returning. The central courtyard is nice and safe for children to play, and the kid friendly beach is just across the road. The staff are always very helpful. Paihia is a great base to explore the beautiful Bay of Islands and Northland.

We have been staying at Busby Manor every year for over 20 years and absolutely love it - walk over the road and you are on the beach - what could be better? The town is short walk away. The Staff are so helpful and friendly - they will book trips for you and nothing is too much trouble. Hope... More

A smallish family resort, with only a local road between it and the sea. Units are compact, but have everything you need. Downstairs units open straight onto the secluded courtyard with the pool and spa at the end of it and a couple of front units face directly onto the sea. Upstairs units have a birds-eye view of the same.... More

We have been going to Busby Manor in the Bay of Islands for over 25 years - with the kids when they were little and now independent - time for us. Heaps of activities for all ages - staff at Busby very helpful and would suggest alternatives based on their own experiences. Easy walking distance to shops, supermarket, restaurants, wharf... More

Been coming for 20 years!! Great views of islands, pohutakawas and a pristine beach. VERY close to beach & Paihia centre. Awesome pool and a delightful and very clean spa pool. Exceptional staff who are happy to assist you with any activity.

We enjoyed our week at Busby as always, great central location, great facilities, great staff and of course the best weather in the country. The spa pool and barbecue area is great with lovely views out to the water. Looking forward to our next visit.

The Bay of Islands is known all around the world as a magical place , so serene and restful and very uplifting for the soul. So if you are looking for somewhere to recharge your batteries this is the place to go to and there is no better place to stay than Busby Manor. It is located on the beach... More
