Just had a couple of nights at this hotel. It is fabulously situated on the waterfront, metres from the shops and restaurants. The room was very clean and spacious. The bathroom had a good sized walk in shower (water pressure a bit weak). The beds were very comfortable- we had a double and a single in our room. TV was... More

Thank you for your feedback and I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Both the group and ourselves are continually reviewing our wifi policy and charges however at the moment we believe that the fairest option is to charge for using wifi as the majority of our guests don't use this facility and they would end up paying in...

I booked late from the net looking for somewhere close to the pier because I was fishing at dawn the following morning. My expectations were low, after all it is a tourist area. In the event, my room (309) didn't have a view but nor did I expect or want one for the price I paid. I have stayed in... More

And of course, the water front view made it extra special. Our room was standard however very clean, quiet and comfortable beds. Definitely stay here again in the... More

We arrived at Paihia a little tired from our journey, but when we saw our hotel for the next 2 nights, we had a new lease on life. Right on the front over looking the water, it was a sight to behold.

We have stayed here every year for the last five years when the ocean swim race takes place. Central to shops, restaurants and with stunning views, this is a lovely place to stay.

Thank you for your feedback and I am pleased that you have enjoyed your previous visits and I apologise that this visit was not so great.

The views from the bar at Kingsgate are super. Really good bar staff who had a fantastic sense of humour. The evening buffet meals were outstanding with oysters , green lip mussels and prawns at every meal for a starter. Plenty to choose from. Rooms could be a bit noisy as they backed on to the car park but that... More

Thank you for your feedback and I apologise for the lamb you had for dinner. We normally get very good comments about our food but in this case our kitchen obviously got it wrong. Our chef has been made aware of your complaint and has taken appropriate action to ensure it doesn't happen again. Regards More
