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

Good location, clean and big room, comfortable bed. A lot of facilities were provided, spa, swimming pool, gym. The room was warm even it was raining and cold outside. Staffs were friendly, check in & check out were easy. I got the 2 nights stay for a special, so really can't fault it for that price. I think it would... More

This hotel is well located for access to the wharf, town and any excursions. It is a 15 minute walk to Waitangi Treaty grounds. Staff on reception are friendly. The rooms are clean and adequate. The beds are not very comfortable but ok for a short stay.

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
