“Lovely view and good location.”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

This is a new, clean place. I wasn't too impressed with a young female receptionist who said our bags had to stay in the foyer for a few hours when we arrived fairly early. Next day another receptionist was there - same situation arose - and she quickly put the baggage safely away elsewhere. The Kingsgate had a free shuttle bus which took us to Opua. Not sure if they'd drive any further for free though. Don't be put off by the rather cheap and shaky bannisters leading to the restaurant. The restaurant is smart and new with great views. We had a nice breakfast there. I'd be pleased to stay at the Kingsgate again.

The travel information centre originally sent us to the Copthorne Hotel where we were shown an old outdated room without air conditioning. The receptionist kindly informed us that they also managed this property. We couldn't believe the rooms in comparison clean, modern and spacious. For not a lot more we were able to stay in the one bedroom apartment with a balcony facing the water. It came with it own private parking space was next to a laundry room ( detergent provided for free) and had a well equipped gym. We initially booked for 2 nights but were enjoying our stay so much we extended for an extra night. The apartment had a good kitchen ( no oven) but more than met our needs. There were 2 tv's and the the one in the bedroom had a DVD player. The bathroom was equipped with a jacuzzi bath tub and lovely products. The breakfast was the best we experienced during our whole stay in New Zealand and the location was great right in the heart of Paihia. If I was going back to Paihia I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again the staff are doing a great job

Went through a booking site to get a room for New Year, found the hotel we had booked, one of the very few shown as available, had shut down. This was the second time we had been caught out, so I tried the Kingsgate as a last resort. It seems this establishment had helped out several families who had seen their plans ruined, by misinformation. A room was found for us and we were able to enjoy the evening topped off with a great firework display seen from the hotel garden. The rooms are fairly standard but the hotel commands a wonderful view of the action in the Bay of Islands. Two double beds in our room, only downside was lack of a bottle opener,problem solved in true kiwi fashion flip the cap with a bic lighter! We could enjoy the music coming from the bar and see the dancing which went on until midnight.

Room Tip: Book early and tell the hotel what sort of amenities you require. Hotel needs to paint some lines f...

It is located at the heart of Paihia, walking distance to all the major restaraunts, stores and activities. rooms are tidy and well maintained. Parking is adequate.Although nearly all the available rooms had 2 queen beds which is unfavourable (particularly because we were on a honeymoon). Also, a little more could have been done about the breakfast as well. Barring a few minor hiccups, no doubts about this hotel. Just book it right away and you wouldnt regret.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms have cars parked in front. so preferably choose rooms on First floor as they have...

Kings gate 
Two nights at Kingsgate have been blissfully restful for us. We are very pleasantly surprised to know that the room is equipped with a shower room with bathtub and shower facility and a toilet room. It is conveniently located at the heart of Paihia. I would return to stay in Kingsgate if I am in Paihia in the future.

Not much to say except endorse earlier comments. Good people, good room and facilities and close to town. Best happy hour we had in New Zealand.

we travelled here from auckland for a family weekend. had great fun riding the hotel bikes, using the tennis court, and swimming in the pool. our room was spacious and spotlessly clean, with a small balcony to sit out on. the staff are very friendly and helpful. breakfast was good, and i believe the common areas of the hotel are currently having an upgrade. you won't be disappointed staying here.
