Spent a week here in June 2016 , even though it was winter time the place in the Bay of Islands was fantastic. Busby Manor itself is in the perfect central location to everything and the apartments are very comfortable and well maintained. The one bedroom apartment is compact but it has everything you need for an enjoyable stay. We... More

Good welcome from excellent staff to comfortable, clean and well set-up 1 bedroom upstairs unit. We had all we needed for a week of R&R. Free WiFi allowance was good. Staff couldn't be better - helpful at all times and attentive to every request. Views from unit were a bonus. No noise from neighbours.

Just had a week here with two NZ friends. Great position, walk to everything... Sharon manages Busby Manor so well, and is very helpful, and the whole complex is clean and tidy and freshly painted. Highly recommend staying here.

Family stays here a couple of times a year. Always so very comfortable and immaculately presented, this resort is overseen by the very efficient Sharon who has vast knowledge of pretty much anything and everything the beautiful Bay of Islands has to offer guests. And the sunrise sparkling on the sea just across the road....hard to beat...

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Busyby Manor this past week and had a fantastic experience. We were able to enjoy the ocean front view while barbecuing on the patio and soaking in the hot tub. The unit was well kept, clean and had all the amenities needed for a relaxing stay in Paihia. To add... More

Friendly and welcoming staff. Most beautiful sea facing setting. Apartments were clean and comfortable. Walking distance to restaurants and ferries. The staff assisted us with our ferry bookings. We loved it there. Highly recommended 😁

Love this place. Staff are excellent and go beyond the call of duty. This timeshare is placed perfectly on the seafront and close to all you need (walking distance) - apartments are small but well appointed. Happy to come back once a year to enjoy everything on offer. Strong focus of current managers to lift the bar is paying dividends.... More

The location of Busby Manor is fantastic, on the waterfront, very close to town. Excellent apartments with everything you need. Our boys enjoyed swimming daily with cousins. Extremely helpful staff. Will be back. Ann & Jono
