“Happy traveller”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

As I travel regularly for work I like to have a regular motel and the Kingswood Manor is now my home in Whangarei, The rooms are faultlessly clean and have everything I need including comprehensive cooking facilities. Everything is easy to find and the rooms are warm and comfortable, a nice comfy and supportive bed also makes my stay enjoyable. Great value for money and friendly managers (not to mention very friendly felines).

Its hard to find a decent Motel in Whangarei. This place is nice, I stayed here a few years back, and there was a lot of road noise, that's ok now as there is the Kamo bypass, so the main road is quiet as at night. Nice spa pool, friendly cats that come into your room for a pat, nice and clean, friendly hosts.

Have stayed for both business and weekends away. Love the spa bath room, but the basic rooms are very comfortable also. Very good service.Spa is very nice and relaxing especially in the cold nights.Rooms are clean and bed i have to say was great. Nice to have cooking facilities.

we had a basic room next to reception on ground floor; room was reasonably clean, kitchenette was handy; we had a connecting suite to another couple we travelled with; bed was reasonably comfortable. We found it difficult to get our bearings and understand the layout of Whangarei.
Staff directed us to a nearby pub for a meal.

We arrived late one evening, without a booking or any prior information about Kingswood Manor, but couldn´t have picked a better place if we had tried.

Clean, comfortable, spacious and with parking right outside our room it was everything we wanted. The separate kitchen was great for making breakfast or light meals during our stay, and Kevin, the owner, was very helpful in suggesting places for us to visit.

Free WIFI included in the price.

Would absolutely recommend this place to anyone.

We spent three days here as a base exploring Whangarei and points north and were very satisfied. The rooms are clean and efficient, and the daily maid service was excellent. We greatly appreciate the friendly Kiwi reception we received. Upon arrival you receive cookies and fresh milk for your morning coffee or tea.
