We first visited Crisdon Castle four years ago for our honeymoon and fell in love instantly with the breathtaking views and tranquility of the place. Chris & Donna made us feel so at home and nothing was too much trouble. We have been coming back ever since every chance we get! Donna is such a great cook her meals are...

We stayed at the Crisdon Castle in December 2012. I have been meaning to write this review for some time so apologies for its delay. We chose Crisdon because the reviews were good and the views looked lovely. It is located about a 10 minute drive out of Paihia on a small housing estate. Our room, Kings Retreat, certainly did...

Felt like royalty during our stay in the Royal Suite - room was luxurious and had everything you could possibly want. Liked the fact that we had a separate entrance, but nothing was too much trouble and the atmosphere created by Donna and Chris was one of pure relaxation. The breakfast was amazing particularly the pancakes!!! The views from the...

Stunning views and a breakfast to match, can’t recommend highly enough. The room amenities and quality of the linen were excellent, providing a luxurious experience. Our short break left us relaxed and rejuvenated for 2013. Thank you Chris and Donna for a memorable stay. Julie is still raving about the pancakes.

We decided to spend our first few nights of our holiday in NZ at Crisdon Castle in the Bay of Islands through a friend's recommendation. After 3 weeks travelling around both the North and South Islands and enjoying every moment of our holiday, our stay at Crisdon Castle remains the highlight of our trip. I would recommend this beautiful retreat...

We stayed 2 nights in the King Room, which was extremely huge and well appointed, including having a stone spa. The views from the Castle of Paihia, Russell, etc. were terrific. Donna & Chris were fantastic guests. The breakfast options were plentiful and tasty. In addition, Donna & Chris were very accommodating, packing us a breakfast to take with us...

We stayed for 3 nights in the property's 'Queens Quarters' and honestly couldn't be happier with our stay. Our hosts made us feel like family -offering to drop us off for local walks and cooking us the most devine breakfasts each morning. This will be the number one place to stay in the area and deservingly so. Tip: again, make...

“The pool make's the view great. Looks great and definitely adds something to the place. The thing is, it's only 1 feet deep. Not that much swimming going on ;) Knight's Nook is the cheapest room available. (the only one they had available for us those nights) It's good, it has nice spa-bath, great bed, spacious and is filled up with nice details to make it complete! When i get to Paihia, i'll definitely stay here again.”
