We visited Crisdon Castle in December 201, family of 4 adults, and we loved it! My partner and myself visited Bay of Islands in January 2011 and stayed at Cooks lookout, for the same price there is no comparison, Crisdon Castle wins hands down!
Amazing accommodation, we had the Queens Quarters, 2 bedroomed unit with jacuzzi and an amazing view across the bay! Sorry to keep using the word Amazing, but it really is!
The breakfast was great, lots of choice and delicious, actually the best breakfast I have had included in my room rate!
Chris, Donna and Trish were great hosts, very welcoming and friendly. Couldn't do enough for us. We were booked on a fishing trip early on our last morning, so we didn't miss breakfast they brought a whole tray of stuff to our room, including freshly baked banana bread, yummy! They even gave us waterproof coats to take, unfortunately the boat trip was called off due to bad weather, but one to put on the list for next time.
I really can't say enough positive things about this place, when we next go up that way we will definitely be staying at Crisdon Castle!
Book it, you will not be disappointed!
