Spent 2 nights at Kingsgate and we wished we had booked for longer before moving on through our trip. We had a suite, which all come with bay view, but the first floor ones are the best. Ours was on the end so had windows on 2 walls so apartment was light and airy. Out of season meant the place was not very busy, which is probably why we had a suite for 6 so reasonably. Made use of the kitchenette to prepare a meal and it was equipped with the basics. bathroom had spa bath and large walk-inb shower and very nice toiltries. Lounge area large and french windows gave great view and opened on to balcony. In the middle of summer it would be fantastic. The hotel is on the main road, so it might be noisier with traffic and people in the summer, but it was relatively quiet and certainly no noisier than we are used to at home. The staff on reception were very friendly and welcoming, keen to put a name to the emails! Breakfast good, but cooked components could have been fresher and more attention paid to when such as milk and coffee ran out. Would look to stay again as still plenty to explore in the area. Paihia makes a great base for exploring the Northland area.
