The Bay of Islands is one of the nicest destinations of the North Island.
My wife choose the Sea Spray Suites for a short break away.
I had never heard of Sea Spray Suites but its association with Heritage Hotels through the Boutique Collection programme gave me the confidence that it would be a good choice.
Well, it was.
Sea Spray Suites is located between Paihia and Waitangi, making both accessible by foot, along the beautiful beach.
The unit we stayed in was clean, well appointed and perfect for purpose.
Next time, I think though we would upgrade to a sea view suite.
Being towards the back of the complex, we did not have the views, but advantage may have been that it was therefor very quiet.
When we arrived, our booking was not in the system, due to an oversight by the agent making the booking. It made me a bit nervous and had a "here you go" thought...
Anja, the manager on duty, handled it very well. She immediately said, don't worry, I will check you in, and sort it out!
She did sort it out. We had no worries.
There was no wifi signal in our room.
Not a real issue for me, as I used my smartphone as a wifi hotspot for my wireless devices, however if you do rely on wifi, then you may want to confirm with reception to get a unit allocated which does have wifi....
Our stay was enjoyable and we would recommend this facility.
