We stayed at the Northerner Hotel as you need to stay overnight in Kaitaia (or at another nearby town) if you're heading up from Auckland to do the Cape Reinga trip. The Northerner Hotel was the nicest looking hotel out of all the hotels available in Kaitaia, which isn't saying much about the town. Of course hotel websites are always... More

Have stayed here a few times over the years for business. It's going downhill every time... TLC is needed and isn't showing. This time the restaurant was closed, and when I mentioned about breakfast I was given a tray about 1/2hr later (So assumed the breakfast room was closed) but saw it was open the next morning when checking out!!...

First impressions when you walk into the reception that this is not a modern hotel at all. The staff were okay friendly and okay helpful. A decent amount of parking in the hotel so finding a lot shouldn't be too big of an issue. Walking to the room, you have to use your key to open a main door before... More

We stayed one night and it was very pleasant. The room was very old, but the price was right. Was expecting to cook in room but found out that it wasn't a room to cook in and did not want to pay hotel prices for breakfast as we only are small eaters. The room was like the house I grew... More

The staff was very welcoming and helpful with providing information about local places to eat.

The room was just as other's said like back in the 70's.Shower head very low and old.The TV was old fashioned like grandpa. Because... More

It is very old and smell bad when you enter the room. The bed is cold and not comfortable as the room is damp and mouldy. The staff/housekeeper was very rude to us when we asked her why they didn't make up our bed after we came back from tour around 5pm. We won't stay again! It will be the... More

This hotel was likely built in the 1970s and as such has a lost in time feel to it, but on the whole it is a very affordable hotel with a prime location for exploring the far North. The service was efficient although not overly informative. The rooms were reasonably clean with the odd stain and cobweb. This did not... More

Felt like we were back in the 70's. Shower head very low & room needs a makeover to modernise it a bit. Would be nice to upgrade to queen size beds. Restaurant wasn't open night we were there which was frustrating. Spa in with the gym which isn't very relaxing.

After travelling from Auckland to Kaitaia, all we wanted to do was sit, relax, have a hot shower and eat. Booking in the staff are really good, they explained everything they could, gave us our free internet access passwords and pointed out the best places to eat. The rooms are best described as functional. Everything worked - but is old,... More

We stayed two nights at this hotel so we could do the day tour to the Ninety Mile Beach and Cape Reinga. The staff was very welcoming and helpful with providing information about local places to eat. The room was adequate and the bathroom good with some complimentary basic toiletries. The TV was old fashioned with a tiny screen and... More
