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.

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

Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly, helpful staff. The unit we were given was spacious and well equipped. The pool, spa and bbq area were well maintained . The location was excellent. An easy walk to shops and restaurants. Would definitely recommend:)

I've been coming here on and off for almost 20 years and have no doubt this will continue. Great location, tidy units, helpful and knowledgeable staff. Suitable for couples and families, very relaxing environment and right across from the water.

We arrived in Paihia just before Waitangi day, to find pretty much everywhere booked up. We stopped at Busby Manor on spec and the receptionist was really helpful, suggesting other (cheaper) possible places to stay. We did check out some other possibilities, but decided that Busby Manor looked really comfortable and went back there. The studio apartment was very well... More
