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...

I only stayed there on night, and Kingsgate Head Office had booked me into another hotel; the staff here were really helpful in sorting out the problem, and were really friendly. The situation is right by the river, though other surroundings were a bit scruffy and commercial. The food was good. The room was tired looking, as was the corridor... More

I stayed here for 1 night(was supposed to be 2) last week. The room was on the 2nd floor of the old block. The room was dated and shabby, the sheets were either 100% polyester, not clean or so old they had lost the 'hotel' freshness. The final insult was there were either fleas or bugs as somehow I ended... More

I had one night here on a business trip. It was difficult getting luggage to our rooms on the 2nd floor through several sets of doors and up the stairs (no lift). The room was clean and comfortable if somewhat dated. Shower small. A pair of hot points by the desk didn't work - so unplugged the TV. Dinner was... More

We stayed at the Kingsgate last Saturday night for the Kiwis league test. The room was lovely overlooking the marina with a very comfy super king bed. Will definately be back to this place. . Very clean and tidy. Thanks everyone for great stay

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
