This hotel is large with everything you will need. It is a little bit tired, but clean and functional. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The marina over the road is very picturesque. It is hand for the airport and a 5 minute walk into the town centre.

Very close to the harbour. If you like super yatchs and the like this is the place for you. A great place for sn evening stroll. The room was average - no hatbour viee. The bed was comfortable. We fined in the redtaurant. The staff were great - warm friendly and certainly an inviting atmosphere. The meal was very good.

Spacious room, v. comfy beds, good sized bathroom but not enough shelf space for toiletries ( obviously used to single male travellers booking rooms ).Could not understand why gym was open 6.30 am- 11 pm but when we got back from a meal the bar was shut at 10.05. Had a great meal in the restaurant, melt in the mouth... More

Stayed here a few times on business. It does the job...an okay place to sleep for a night or two. Close to amenities, etc. Service was pretty good and efficient. Free wifi although you don't get a lot. I would recommend for a business traveler

I spent 4 nights here for work and lets just say I'm glad I was not paying the bill! What they charge for the room certainly does not match the quality you receive. My room was very old and dated, in very desperate need of a makeover! Even small things would improve the state, like a new and unstained bedspread?!... More

We stayed in the Kingsgate Whangarei Feb 26, 2015. We had 1 double and one suite. The price was high and the rooms terrible. The whole facility is badly in need of maintenance and cleaning. The restaurant only served a full buffet ($25) or continental ($15.50) breakfast which were both very substandard. When paying our $500 plus bill, we were... More

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
