“School Holiday Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Myself and my two girls stayed at the Kingsgate Autolodge in the October School Holidays , we found the hotel very clean and tidy, very comfortable beds . The only thing that was a bit of a let down was the television set was not programmed to the stations that were advertised, as one of the days was wet it was a long day indoors. the other thing I might suggest is supplying a game or two in the room for familys to play or Sky has a channel just for children .

Thank you for your feedback. I apologise for the TV not being programmed correctly. Also it is a good suggestion re games for children.

We stayed two nights at the Kingsgate Hotel, we took advantage of some time in the private spa room, enjoyed a complimentary drink in the bar. Our rooms were clean, comfortable and well appointed. No complaints and great value. Would stay again happily.

Stayed there twice in September and October 2013. Spacious rooms with ensuite bathroom with excellent double size large shower. Friendly staff. Large heated swimming pool and separate bookable private spa room. Restaurant on site with full stocked bar. Breakfast and dinner caters for all ages with specials. The roasts are delicious. Sited on the waterfront in Paihia and minutes from the ferry service to historic Russell. Would definitely stay here next time in the Bay of Islands.

We stayed in a suite right at the front on site. Only a road between us and beach. 5 min walk to resturants. 1/2 walk to waitangi. We ate in hotel resturant one night - very pleasant. Resturant guide in toom a bit out of date. Found it best to walk to town to find resturants. Very enjoyable few days in Paihia.

Family holiday for 4 nights. Nice place with beautiful pool area, & the kids enjoyed the games room. Room cleaned well. Lost mark for not overly friendly reception staff. Didn't ask how our stay was or if everything was up to scratch. Value was great due to a deal we got with interconnecting rooms.

Booked a family holiday for Fri/Sat in advance then decided to go on holiday a day earlier, phoned hotel to ensure vacancy no hassles to add extra days, also due to the great weather made the most of it and stayed a extra day longer. late check out carried over, No hassles, competitive pricing.

Booked room with two double beds - room was upstairs, view of ocean between buildings with small balcony, room was clean and well maintained, fridge and tea making facilities in room, well kept grounds, a lot of off street parking.

Ice, gym, laundry powder, towels, swimming pool, spa, bikes, games room available at no extra charges. Washing machines and dryer have a small charge for usage.

Hotel gives option for going green saving on towels etc, sensor lighting, efficient lighting ie have to use card to lights in room however would like to see more paper/bottle recycling available to guests.

Quiet location, handy for restaurants, shops, passenger ferry, boat trips, beach..
Awesome breakfasts, yummy coffee in restaurant, kids loved the hash browns and bacon along with the friendly staff first thing in the morning. Great view from restaurant and pool area.

Would recommend and have now stayed a couple of times, will return. again.
