We had a amazing view as the suites overlook the waterfront, our suite was fully self contained and had everything we needed. Breakfast was included also which we enjoyed.

My girlfriend and I booked in for 2 nights at Kingsgate in Paihia just to get away from Auckland for a few days. We had a wonderful experience. The staff are all very friendly, the views are great, the food in the restaurant is wonderful (we only had breakfast) and our rooms were amazing. The rooms are extremely well kept,... More

Excellent. We were attending our niece and nephew's daughter's 2nd Birthday in Paihia and a Campaign Fundraiser for another friend in Kawakawa so the 2 nights at the Kingsgate was an ideal location for my husband and I. We stayed 2 nights in a ground floor apartment and our daughter and her friend had their room next to us. Lovely... More

Had 3 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed it. We booked a Grabone deal that was very cheap for what we got so we had a ground floor room with no view but it was excellent. It was a great size, very clean, huge shower and everything we needed. Had a heat pump, very comfy bed and plenty of room to... More

Very nice, comfy beds, excellent laundry facilities available. Great position, lovely resort. Nice swimming pool and outside sunbathing / lounge area. Food great both breakfasts and dinner.

Thank you for your positive feedback. Due to space constraints hotel bathrooms are always a compromise. When we designed these rooms we decided we wanted the toilet to be separate from the rest of the bathroom. This meant we could only separate the sink from the room by a wall and not a door. Personally I find it so much... More

I escorted a group of elderly guests from overseas. The rooms were perfect, they gave us ground floor rooms for easy access. Good, clean bathrooms and good beds too. The ice dispensers in the corridor were a boon too !

Stayed here for 2 nights whilst travelling with a group. Unfortunately on arrival an error had occurred regarding room allocations. Although the mistake wasnt on the part of the 2 guests (me included) no acknowledgement was made of this fact and we were made to feel nuisances because the hotel had to find sole occupancy rooms for us. No apology... More

Stayed for 2 nights as part of a Grand Pacific Tour. The Kingsgate is on the waterfront with a front and rear access .... close to shops and restaurants and only a few minutes walk to the wharf if going on a cruise.

We stayed overnight in room with a beautiful view over the bay. The staff were very pleasant to deal with, the accommodation was very clean and comfortable. Loved the view from the room, waking up to see two cruise ships in the morning was a treat. Waitangi is a must for all Kiwis.
