The hotel overlooks The Bay of Islands, the views from the dining room are wonderful. Our room was excellent, staff were very friendly and food good. It's a very central site, close to all the shops and bars.

My husband, myself and two young boys stayed here for the weekend on a grabbing deal so it was great value. Check in was a breeze staff were friendly and welcoming initial impressions of the hotel were good with a large parking area and nice reception area. Our room was basic but clean comfortable and catered to all our needs... More

Getting to Kingsgate hotel was an unforeseen twist in our plannings that ended well. We booked a different place through an online booking website, packed our bags. While we were heading to Paihia we received a call from the representative of that booking website informing it was an error in the system and there is no place in the hotel... More

We loved our stay, close to shops and bars, the kids got their own pull out beds in the lounge, whilst we had our own bed too..It was... More

The rooms are clean, comfortable with king beds.. the hotel is well maintained and have a gym, pool and spa. the staff is courteous and friendly.. They gave us free cycles to explore the city. It is a short walk from the hotel to the city center from both sides. Though rooms do not have a sea view, but can... More

The hotel is nicely situated at the beach although most of the rooms have do not have a sea view. It is only short walk to the city center. My room was of good size and clean. The bed was comfortable and the staff was helpful and friendly.

This property is in a great location by the sea and a short walk to bars and restaurants . It has a large number of rooms but only a few at the front have sea views so you would need to ask for this if that is important. It has a great outdoor swimming pool for summer and a spa... More

I was extremely disappointed with accommodation at the Kingsgate and would have to say it was the most basic accommodation of our entire tour of New Zealand. I realise we would have to have been staying in the "poor man's section" as the building opposite looked heaps more up to date. Have to say though it was clean but definitely... More

Thank you for your feedback but I am a little surprised at your comments considering the very positive comments we have been receiving recently. We do not have a "poor man's section" in our hotel. Although the 3 buildings we have were built at different times all the rooms have been totally refurbished in the last 5 years and are... More

Stayed recently over long weekend... For such a large complex I was impressed with everything - Clean, Well maintained building/facilities/gardens/rooms... Great friendly staff & plenty on hand always smiling... Room was just what we needed for trip away... Beds were not amazing however a very nice new bed at home probably highlighted this! Lol Very happy & would stay again

We stayed at the hotel for two nights with a special offer purchased online. The highlight of the stay was definitely the location of the hotel. The view from our room wasn't fantastic (I am going to assume that for the other rooms available in the hotel as they've designed the rooms to face each other), but the check-in and... More
