4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Nice clean apartments that are well kitted out with what we needed, kitchen area was really good, good location just cross the road to the beach! Only reason this hasn't got the top rating is WiFi isn't free, you have to pay extra at reception. Other than that, great stay and would visit again.

Clean, very spacious & well appointed rooms. Much bigger than most 1br residential aprtments. Located directly across the road from the beach & 10mins walk to Paihia wharf. Guest tip: the oven is also a microwave.

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms have a patio/ outdoor area.

Neat 3 star accommodation with all the usual features. The linen isn't changed daily unless you ask. Shirley (manager) is great and goes the extra mile to meet your needs. Wifi access is unstable and TVs are old with very limited channels. Close to local stores and a few minutes walk from the pier and Main Street.

Spent 3 nights here in a one bedroom apartment.Was welcomed by a wonderful and friendly host and a beautiful piece of fudge in our room.A nice little touch! Was very pleased with the appliences. We even had salt & pepper shakers.Very modern and comfortable. Only a 10 minute walk into the village for all the shops and activities. It was so nice to get up early in the morning and go for a refreshing walk along the beach just 50m away
Would definatetly recommend and use again!

Spent 2 nights here in the 2 bedroom apartment overlooking the beach. It is so worthwhile requesting this as its very relaxing sitting on the front porch watching the world go by. The bed was king size and in the front room, a bit nervous re all the traffic noise during the night but it was quiet and not that much noise so all good. The bathroom had a great big modern shower. The kitchen was fully equipped and had a laundry with a microwave and washing machine you needed to be a rocket scientist to figure out how to use them but we worked it out. The lounge room was comfie and dining table for 6. The fridge was double sided with ice machine!
We went to the supermarket called "countdown" about 3 blocks away, nearby and stocked on groceries. There are restaurants and cafes you can walk to and it's very relaxing ambience.. Wish we had stay longer! No free wifi.

Room Tip: Don't hesitate to get an appt with sea view!

A really pleasant stay at Sea Spray Suites in the middle of a very cold July. Room was nicely furnished, modern, clean and warm. The heat pump was a nice addition rather than the usual heating arrangements. Kitchen was very well fitted and easy to use. We would have liked to have stayed longer. Would definately recommend.

We had a lovely 4 day/night stay at the Sea Spray Suites in Paihia, Bay of Islands. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Decor is nice and modern with full kitchen facilities and a heat pump/air con to take away the night chill. A good location and only a 10 minute walk to main shops, restaurants and ferries in one direction; and in the other direction, 10 minutes to the peaceful Waitangi and all its history of the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840, and the times before and after that. We recommend Waitangi as a place for international visitors to attain a sense of what makes "New Zealand" what it is today, and for New Zealanders to refresh on their own history pre and post European settlement.
Back to Sea Spray Suites: the staff were friendly and helpful, and accommodating our our simple requests. Certainly at this time of year - July - the tarrif was fair and reasonable; good value overall.

Room Tip: If your budget allows, definitely choose a room with a sea view. We did not, but we spent many hours...
