This was our second time visiting the Bay of Islands and it was important to us to have a room with a view.. We reserved the room facing the ocean because we were going to spend three days mainly relaxing in the hotel. Upon arrival, we were shown our first floor ocean room, which had a great view of parked cars. Because we were an early arrival and great dissatisfaction on our part, we were moved to the second floor, which was what we had paid for! The huge glass doors completely opened up.
The rooms were spotless. Appreciated the kitchen amenities, like the fairly large refrigerator and dishwasher. Appreciated the milk provided daily. Kitchen supplies were more than adequate. Dresser space was lacking. Only had two very small drawers in the night stands. I ended up using the one drawer in the bathroom for clothes.
The outside walkways needed to be given the same attention as the inside rooms. Needed more attention.
We arrived by bus, so had to have a good central location.. The Sea Spray met all our Requirements. The treaty grounds, grocery store and center of Paihia were all within a comfortable walking distance.
Loved being able to hop a ferry and lunch in historic Russell.
