Stayed here for 2 nights as part of AAT Kings tour. The hotel accommodates many tour groups and copes reasonably well with handling the room allocation and luggage for large numbers of people. The room we were allocated were in the wing closest to the road but there is very little traffic noise. The wing itself is single story and...

This hotel has all the potential to be a really nice hotel. It looks nice from the outside and the views are wonderful, but everything is extra. We have been traveling all over New Zealand over the past 3 weeks and it's the only hotel we stayedthat changed for wifi in your room. The rooms could really do with a...

This seems to be the only proper hotel so close to Paihia, the others are more like motels. Situated on the Waitangi island, it is a 20-30 minute walk to the central part of Paihia but the walk is beautiful and if you are lazy they have hourly complimentary shuttles to take you to the city. We upgraded our room...

This hotel was booked as part of an APT Northern Tour. It is in an idyllic environment with views of the bay and adjacent to the Waitangi Treaty grounds, so I was looking forward to a pleasant stay in beautiful surroundings. Unfortunately that was not my experience. After a long, hot day of travel I arrived to be allocated a...

This is a very relaxing place to stay we had a sea view and the setting could not be better. The Corvette club were staying at the resort made interesting viewing. The shuttle bus was useful but stopped running quiet early. It is about twenty minute walk to the main centre. A very pleasant walk

The location on the harbor and views from some of the rooms no doubt is what makes or made this a "resort" at one point, but it's pretty tired and run-down now. Doesn't look like they have put any money into this place for a lot of years. The bathroom was particularly disgusting with mold, rotting door and molding, and...

We had a big room with a huge bathroom and storage/wardrobe area, and terrace with good seas views out over the lawn. The service in the restaurant for dinner was pretty slow, and the breakfast was average. The reception staff were not overly friendly. I'll probably try somewhere else next time.

Beautiful resort at bay of islands adjacent to beach. Excellent location and very comfortable stay. It's near the treaty house which is a historical place. The guided tour and the old building maintained very nicely. The beauty of the place with scenic location is fascinating to watch.
