This hotel is in a great location, but it is poor in terms of food. The buffet breakfast and dinner had a poor, cheap selection and the chef who cut our roast meat was grumpy. Breakfast had a poor choice. I ate jam and bread! Toiletries were of a poor quality and quantity. WiFi also poor. Pity, as most staff...

The room is a good size with two large singles put together to make a king sized, very comfortable bed. The room has a little terrace outside with two chairs (others have balconies). My room had a shower over the bath which was pretty easy to use. There was an ironing board and iron as well as a safe and...

Not there yet, as we are going next week but after searching the internet and having eaten there before and seen it, I think you'll be interested in my search to date. I'm ten days out from going so would like a night of luxury at a fair price. I was looking for 4 adults but their rooms have three...

Oceanview room is that. I'd never stay in any other. There are lots of tourists here but it is away from the busyness of town. Good walks from there. Breakfast is average- nothing special. Lovely being part of the Waitangi grounds- every person who lives in Aotearoa/NZ should visit in their lifetime. Staff were welcoming. Bathroom a bit tired. Only...

This hotel is beautifully situated near to the beach. When we walked into our ground floor room, the ceiling fan was going and also a floor fan. It was very warm and we discovered that there was no air conditioning! The room was spacious, with a king size bed, tv, table and whicker chairs, tea/coffee making facilities and hairdryer,iron and...

Great location at the end of town and attractive to look at as you arrive. Check in was efficient. Room was OK, plenty of space. Pool area small for the size of the hotel with very limited loungers. No easy access to the sea - seems a waste given location. Staff a little brusque at times. Check out poor, charged...

The hotel was around $250 per night and was old with rooms and bathrooms needing an overhaul. The resort itself is well situated and has amenities, but is really suited to large tour bus groups and groups off visiting cruises. There are better options in the town and in Russell.

A great pool and it gives access to the sea - perfect for swimmers. I really enjoyed this hotel. The staff were efficient and friendly. The hotel provided a shuttle into the resort and the Waitangi Reserve is a short walk away. Ate at the restaurant twice - a buffet then a la carte - both were very enjoyable. The...

We where traveled there for a wedding for close friend's. We booked 3 months in advance and used a CC for the prebooking which was fine. They insisted on a 150 dollar bond which i found strange as they had the card details. The facilities are nice with an out door garden pool and spa. In house dining was good...

In the midst of the nations founding grounds. Experience peace and quite surrounds with ground floor room we stayed at opening into the green lawns and the bay. Tropical resort hotel ambiance sans the need for a passport. Our home away from home when in Paihia.
