Overnight stay with 2 six-year old's on a mission to collect the new family pet from the SPCA the next morning. Fantastic pool area, games room and lovely spa. 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

Had an issue with the tumble dryer and the manager sorted it out quickly... A bit noisy in the morning but otherwise nice and quiet.... Restaurant is reasonably priced which decent portions... 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The hotel entourage, rooms and furnishing is outdated.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 It was outdated and not so clean..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.

This hotel had good reviews so we booked for 3 nights and got a good rate. However half of the hotel is closed due to empty rooms and them not wanting to open things (restaurant, bar etc). The rooms are also very small and ill equipped. The real downside however is that the beds are horrible. The sides of the... More

Thank you for your review - during our low season we do close rooms down for deep cleaning and winter maintenance. The restaurant and bar on certain days in June was closed due to low occupancy in the hotel, this has been reviewed and our restaurant and bar will remain open 7 nights a week on limited hours.

Rooms are large and clean although walls are fairly thin that one hears noises from the other room. Swimming pool is lovely. Laundry facility is available and the... More
