My partner and i stayed here for 2 nights. We had the double spa suite. Having stayed at lots of motels both over seas and NZ. This by Far is the best value. It has good size rooms. Very comfortable and very clean. Certainly will make it our local when in Whangarei next

The room is small with attached kitchenette on one side and bathroom door just in front. The kitchen has an electric stove and utensils are provided. The plates, coffee cup, spoons etc... More

I stayed here for 1 night the day before flying back to the UK a week ago The Host was unbelievably helpful by helping me printing out my flight on-line reservation and paying a road toll bill. He really helped me as I had no computer with me. A very comfortable stay at this motel and a very good price.... More

Located in Kamo, but not too far from town, easy to find, good parking, and quiet. Kevin (Host) very nice to deal with, room was clean and comfortable, and very competitive price. The Motel was fully booked but we never noticed any noise or difficulty with other patrons staying. There are eateries/takaways not too far away. Would recommend and if... More

The Kingswood Manor Motel is on the old North road, before the Kamo bypass went in. This is a high traffic flow area, but the units are surprisingly quiet and comfortable. The outlook is pleasant onto trees, with a common terrace, ranch slider access. Massive parking area, so great for the ‘Tradies’ Good modern facilities, excellent shower with califont (endless)...

My wife and I spent just one night here on our way up to the Bay of Islands. The room was large with a good kitchen area and separate bedroom. It was clean and the décor was OK but could probably do with a refurb. The bed was a good size and comfortable though I felt the pillows were a... More

Stayed here for first time. Really, genuinely surprised. Very neat and tidy motel. While the property is getting old, its not getting tired. Room I had looked like it has recently (say last 1-2 years) been refurbished. Very nice bathroom. Decent size. Nice shower. Room itself was just the right size. Good furnishings and facilities. Room was very very clean.... More
