Stayed here for 4 nights during business trip to the area. The location is great right on the water. I was so tired when I got there I decided to get a room service dinner, and although there isn't a lot of choice it tasted amazing. I had breakfast each morning in my room which was always good and arrived... More

Walk out of reception and you're a few steps away from beautiful boats in the marina. Great for an early morning or evening walk. The Kingsgate is a sprawling 2-storey hotel with indoor and outdoor pools and a small gym. Plenty of car-parking and easy access to the city centre. The rooms are average. Mine at the back was quiet.... More

My daughter loves staying here when we are in Whangarei for her sports etc, it has a indoor swimming pool and spa which is great entertainment in winter. And in the weekend they often have a bed and breakfast special so breakfast is inculded in the price which is very reasonable for a hotel. The hotel is a little tired... More

The rooms are dated and the bed I had was very uncomfortable so had very little sleep. On the plus side the staff were very friendly and the food was very nice although took a long time to arrive. Will look for another location next time I come to whangarei.

Stayed here recently for a conference and was very impressed. The room was clean and tidy and well served for all items that you need on a business trip. The staff were superb, particularly Amy Masters on the front desk who helped me out with some printing and scanning. Nothing was too much trouble. The bar staff were good characters... More

We recently had a night here and were extremely disappointed. The hotel looks great on the website, but in reality it is very run down. The bathroom is basic with no place to put anything, and had a small plastic shower, but no bath. The room was small, dark and dingy, but relatively clean. For NZ$200 this was outrageous to... More

If you want to go back to the 70's then stay at the Kingsgate. It's tired, worn and old fashioned. The room was big but the bed was very small for two people. The bathroom had been updated but no vanity space, had to put toilet bag on the floor. The bedspread had stains on it, I complained but it... More

I'm not sure why I stayed here without reading the reviews first... For a hotel that poses itself as really classy, it is anything but classy, it is really tired and feels and smells old and musty. I might sound like an idiot writing this but everything in the room is difficult to use. There are no light switches on... More
