Pros: Heated pool and outdoor pool which my son loved. Location - close to everything and clean. Cons: We had a 2 year old with us and despite booking a family room were only given 2 towels (2 of everything actually). We constantly had to park away from our room (no parks near us). We were also next to a... More

No problem with this hotel - it was very clean with friendly service and great views and location. The staff were very helpful and the rooms were adequate - Wi-Fi, as with most of New Zealand, was hit and miss but we managed to send a few emails. Ideal place to organise trips - my flight over the Bay of... More

We were welcomed by helpful efficient Matawaia even though we had no booking and the hotel was busy. Parking outside our room. Long bench under the TV is very useful. Negatives: Annoyed that Wifi only free for 30 minutes then had to pay. Our room beige, grey and no sparkle or colour. Bathroom needs serious upgrading. Restaurant empty and no... More

Room was clean, comfortable and as per the pictures. Would have loved to have had a full set of cutlery however rather than just a knife and teaspoon - but a... More

Can not speak highly enough of this place. We had a large room with 2 double beds, very comfortable. The room was well appointed, room for all our luggage, bench space for our laptops, beers and more. All rooms appear to be the same size. Bathroom was large and clean, water pressure was great. All staff were so friendly and... More

The hotel entourage, rooms and furnishing is outdated. The bed's matrass was completely sagged and very small. The nightstand and dresser surfaces where still dirty. It was outdated and not so clean..

Located in the centre of Paihia. Clean and tidy room with good service. Just one problem is that I woke up at night because the noise in the hall travelled through the door. Hope Kingsgate will address this issue.
