Had a great weekend staying here. The hotel has recently had some TLC and the design and style of the rooms is very good to the eye and very comfortable. The location is good for central Paihia and the onsite facilities are just what one nedds when enjoying a few days with your grandson. Give it a whirl, especially in... More

The room was nice and clean. I loved a heat pump in our room, just made a huge difference. We had clean towels each day and no issues with clearness of the room. We had people staying below us and they were a problem, other that we had a great stay. They were noisy and just did not care about... More

Stunning place and so much potential but it was filthy and the restaurant staff were rude. Only got two cups and two towels when booked in for four, beds were made but dirty towels left behind in the room, dirty cups and wine glasses. Room was mouldy (which they replied there were old people staying in it before us). Restaurant... More

Thank you for your feedback and I am sorry that your stay was not as pleasant as we would all have wanted it to be. I apologise for the mouldy smell in your original room which was caused by a wet compendium. I think you may have misinterpreted the comments by my staff member about the previous occupants of the...

We spent a few days in the Kingsgate Hotel, Paihia. Right by the sea, you look out over the waves and see the Islands at the same time. Such a pretty and awe-inspiring sight. We can recommend it to everyone. Really good sized rooms with a Balcony and Ranchslider. Quiet and spacious.

On arrival we upgraded to a front room overlooking the sea and it was well worth it. Clean room, friendly staff, excellent location, handy to town, restaurants, bars and the ferry. I would book there again.
