Great hotel located close to just about everything, Staff were friendly rooms very clean and beds comfortable free parking onsite a bonus. I've paid a lot more a and received a lot less in more highly rated hotels. I'd have no hesitation recommending the hotel to anyone looking to stay in Paihia

We had a basic room with a garden view in the off season, late April. The view was the parking lot but that was okay since we didn't spend much time there. We had a queen and a twin bed, TV, refrig. and coffee maker. The location was excellent, lovely pool and within walking distance to everything. Slept well as... More

Grabbed a deal on Grab one $155 for two adults and two children for two nights. Grabbed the deal for my Hubby and I (no children) and upgraded to a 1 bedroom apartment with ocean views. Great restaurant and bar (complementary drinks at check in). Absolutely idyllic. Had a wonderful stay, booked the spa (which was well maintained). Used two... More

Situated right on the waterfront, rooms arranged around a parking area which meant there was some noise from parked cars right outside rooms and families congregating outside but this was more than compensated by the clean, cosy well appointed rooms. The beds were very soft and comfortable. The dinner buffet was delicious and plentiful and the breakfast excellent. I had... More

Stayed here for close proximity to central Paihia so that we could walk to the local restaurants. It needs a bit of TLC as it all looked very tired. Seems that majority of rooms overlook the car park. Ample breakfast Dining room has good view over the bay

Thank you for your comments. Kingsgate is the third tier in the Millennium range of hotels and our prices reflect that we do not offer the full range of services that Millennium and Copthorne hotels do. Regards More

This hotel is just in the heart of Paihia. It face the bay and in walking distance to the Waitangi Historic Place. The room is large, clean and well equipped. It provided free parking and 2 hours per day free wifi.

Did not stay here but very much enjoyed a meal in their restaurant. A buffet carvery evening meal for $30 was great value and the baked ham that night was a treat. Helpful service staff too. A good selection of food choices. After a big day out on a Hole in The Rock cruise this venue was a good way... More

This was a last moment hotel change by our tour company. The hotel is a "motel" design, 2 beds in a big room , coffee things, hairdryer, iron & board and a very nice looking wet room type walk in shower. One oddity was the position of the loo !! Good that we are not very tall or overweight otherwise... More

Fantastic location with wonderful views. Great value breakfast buffet and the carvery at night is a must! Perfect place to stay if you are visiting the Bay of Islands. Easy walk to the ferry and town. Pool area is clean and the gardens are beautiful. A lovely stay.

We took advantage of their nightly buffet--what a steal! We had lots of food choices and it was all wonderful. It was our cheapest and most elaborate meal in 2 weeks in N. Z.
