Conveniently located, close to shops, restaurants & bars and right on the water front with stunning views. No complaints, the room was very clean and the beds comfortable. The room rate was very reasonable!! We had a great stay!

The Kingsgate is a great place to say and the location couldn't be better, you are just a short walk to shops, cafes, bars and just over the road from the ferry to Russell.The hotel pool, gym and games room are really good. Room was very basic nothing fancy but kept to a good clean standard. Fridge in room and... More

Thank you for your feedback. I appreciate what you say about lack of drawers but we find that people tend to leave things behind in drawers. The lounge in the bar can be accessed through reception throughout the day. There is also seating in reception. We look forward to accommodating you again. Regards More

It is best located by the sea and away from the small town areas on both side, so that you can enjoy a bit of quiet moment in the evening. Room is clean and comfortable. Food in the restaurant is great and view from there is great. Get a window seat and you'll be able to enjoy your meal in... More

Bedroom was excellent - very convenient lay out, the lighting, temp control and bed and pillow were great!!! Very surprising with the reasonable price! Big table and desk were nice to have in the room and newly renovated bathroom was great. Room was clean, staff were very friendly. The game room and spa were very entertaining we used them every...

We stayed in February for one night and were really pleased with what the hotel offered in comparison to other hotels that we looked at. It was cheaper, very good central location with easy walk to the restaurants/shops. We drove to a beach for swimming, but the pool out the front of the hotel would have been a good option... More

The Kingsgate Autolodge is located in the centre of Paihia township right across from the main beach. They have a large range of rooms available. My room would be classed as a studio with two double beds in one main room. There is plenty of room with a wall mounted table with two chairs. The room is upstairs (Two level... More

We spent four nights here and found the hotel had plenty of both pros and cons. Bear in mind that suites face the water, but rooms are at right angles to the sea so lack a view. On the plus side: * You're just 2-3 minutes walk from the bars, restaurants, ferry terminal etc. * The bathroom and separate toilet... More

I apologise for the noise from other inconsiderate guests. Unfortunately due to fire regulations the doors on these rooms are quite heavy and require strong door closers to ensure they are shut for fire safety reasons. We do have a night porter on duty during the summer season and there is a contact phone number to contact a manager for... More

What a great location in Paihia! Right on the seafront facing the beautiful Bay of Islands and just a 20 min walk to the Treaty grounds at Waitangi. We were lucky enough to have a suite on the first floor (407) so had picture perfect views of the Bay. The suite was wonderful with everything we could wish for, luxurious... More

Our unit was one of many that does not have a view, but we didn't worry over that. Roomy unit with tea/coffee making facilities - modern, clean rooms. One criticism is that there was no door between the bedroom and the hand basin which seemed odd. Otherwise, room was very good and location excellent.
