A typical regional motel albeit a large one. Comfy rooms and bed and walk in shower which was nice. Very large restaurant which was busy for breakfast. Walking distance to the central area restaurants and bars.

Old and cold, only went there as only place vacant at the time…could still not believe they charged $5.00 to swipe your visa card to pay bill..unbelievable. Place needs a real revamp and check their prices, as being at a Bed and Breakfast it was beautiful and comfortable and a better price.

First let me say I've stayed at this hotel 4-5 times. I actually brought my car club to stay at this hotel for 2 nights x 17 rooms each night. They still had the audacity to require a security deposit incase we took from the mini bar. We waited to check in for 10 minutes while waiting for the clerk... More

We had a two night stay and enjoyed it. Room was very quiet, no view but no road noise either. Breakfast was lovely with very helpful and friendly staff , as were the house keeping staff also. Great location for walking into town for shopping and dining. We used the pool and spa also.

Stay was very nice. If you can try get up stairs could hear everything that was going on from the room above when they arrived at half four in morning. Showers, walking back and forth in room. House keeping we're very friendly and accommodating.

I have stayed many times at the Kingsgate as a common Whangarei option through my employer. I have had average experiences in the past and thought it was a little overpriced even at the corporate rates (still do). I had not been to the area for a while and was a bit gutted to find that I was to be... More

I recently stayed in the hotel as part of a group that was resident for a number of weeks and as a consequence paid a significant amount of money (approx. $60,000). The rooms at the back of the hotel weren't great, pretty outdated and noisy. The aircon was so noisy it couldn't be used at night. The rooms at the... More

We had two room-suite, bedroom and "lounge", nice layout. Nice bedroom. The bathroom good but it had a noisy fan which was always on when the light in the bathroom was on. Nice decor. It would be good to have more friendly and welcoming lighting in the lounge. Excellent swimming pool. I really enjoyed staying there
