We stayed here for a weekend while attending a family wedding. Great location you could walk to some lovely cafés and a short drive away for the shops. We didn't really have any dealings with staff except for checking in and checking out. It was very pleasant stay will return if we are staying in whangarei again.

We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights last week and I am less than impressed. We had a cockroach infection in our room, that was really disgusting to say the least. In all the years I've stayed in hotels never have I seen a cockroach! In fact we saw 4 in total. When we arrived to our room after... More

Stayed for three nights over New Years and mostly enjoyed our time here. Our room was a premier king room on the second floor with a balcony - which we had requested. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean and really quite large and comfortable. Our balcony looked out over the Whangarei marina and town basin. This was a great... More

Hotel was booked through NZ I site. We found the location easy to get to, parking at door. Easy walk back to town & eateries, Located on waterfront inlet where boats moor. Room was spacious, clean with comfortable bed, in older block. Shower hot. Upstairs accommodation meant we heard people on the stairs, but generally peaceful night. Even though we... More

Whoever owns this hotel should urgently call in the architects, interios designer, landcape gardeners.and a kitchen full of gourmet chefs.This accommodation is very tired and shabby. The gardens have no design, are full of weeds,and scattered around are dead plants, palms and plants in pots. There are even dead ones in the swimming pool area.. surely someone can pull those...
