5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The staff were absolutely awesome. Loved the location - just enough away from the busy bit of town.

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Very nice hotel, clean and spacious with a good location near to the centre of Paihia and Bay of Islands cruises. Only disappointments were the pool being out of use due to water restrictions although others in Paihia were functioning normally, also restaurant seemed to be dominated by coach parties at normal times. Thankfully there were very good restaurants nearby.

The room was large and clean and the beds were comfortable. The 24 hour room service menu was a bit limited but the portions were huge and yummy! Great service by the staff. Great location to base yourself at in Paihia.
