Really small beds, why a couple would want a room with two doubles is beyond me.. One King bed would be much better and easy to do these days with the spilt King singles, really let the place down, stay at the copthorne it's much more like a resort, just stay in the new part.. better views better beds and...

Thank you for your comments. We provide two beds in our rooms for flexibility as we get a variety of different combinations of people staying in our rooms. Due to the layout of our hotel our rooms do not get a view however our suites have great views over the sea and have a king size bed, a lounge and... More

Positives of our stay - excellent location indeed, with a very short walk to the wharf area and shops. Our room was clean and well appointed. The staff at reception were courteous and professional. Negatives of our stay - our room wasn't cleaned completely on our second day, with one towel left unreplaced and an unclean plate left untouched. A... More

We were there on honeymoon (free room upgrade which was appreciated), nice staff and large clean suite with living room, and kitchen as well. Great view of the bay and fireworks on New Year's Eve (from our balcony!) and short walk to main strip with nice bars and restaurants. Parking at peak time seems a bit difficult but if you... More

We had a rather unremarkable stay at Kingsgate. Positive to mention is the location (if you want to be in the centre of Paihia) and the parking. It was fine for a single night, nothing really special.

Stayed for a couple of days while going up to Cape Reinga for a day trip. Very comfortable, very friendly staff and a great location on the waterfront. We had a little car key issue (locked in the car) and the staff let us stay in the room past our departure time at no cost until we had the key... More

Stayed here for three nights for our New Years holidays. When we first arrived, the rooms were still not ready despite we check in at the advised time 2pm. So we went to the Waitangi ground for a visit before we headed back. When we got there, they had problems with the room key so the rooms couldn't be unlock... More

Thank you for your feedback. I apologise that your room was not available when you arrived. This is a very busy time of the year for us and it is also a time when unfortunately guests tend to check out late. Although our staff do their best it is not always possible to have rooms available on time and I... More

Stayed here with my partner and the motorcycle. Parking for the bike was right at the door. Room was clean and tidy and on the ground floor. Would recommend. Only downside was it was noisy from the other guests who slam doors.

Paihia is a beautiful piece of paradise so I was hoping that the Kingsgate didn't disappoint. I was pleasantly surprised!! Clean and comfortable room, equipped with facilities that assist with a short stay away. There was a TV, kettle, small bar fridge, tea/coffee, iron with board, super comfortable beds and great shower. There was a laundry located in the same... More
