We stayed 5 nights with our 6 year old & had a great time. We had a superior seaview room which was the best with a child. We had a beautiful sea view, and he could run out on to the grass, which was great for him and us. (These rooms facing the west with the setting sun would get...

We visited this hotel for three nights recently. My husband is full time in an electric chair. Our accessible Harbour view room had recently been refurbished and was great.The room was on the small side but everything worked well and it had a nice view over the pool and Harbour. The Bar and grounds were less accessible for us but...

Lovely place to stay with nice surroundings.Staff were friendly and helpful. We decided to stay an extra night. Rooms were comfortable and well positioned. The poor area was gorgeous with impressive views. We are an evening meal there which was delicious, waiting staff were attentive without being overbearing. Would love to go again.

This resort is in a fantastic setting in the Bay of Islands....across the Bay from the busier town of Paihia. The rooms are perfectly adequate and comfortable, with an on site restaurant which may be considered over priced at NZ $ 45 for buffet. The a la carte menu is adequate, with a good choice of fare. It is handy...

We stayed for two nights as part of a tour. The hotel was excellent and the views were stunning. We had a huge bedroom with a spacious bathroom with French doors opening out onto a patio onto the lawn and down to the sea with stunning views across the bay. It was a 20minute walk into the town and the...

The staff are friendly enough but the place feels pretty jaded. 30 degree day when we arrived and our kids were excited about getting to the pool only to find it was out of order... The town is very full so if you have enough time in advance I would beat them down to a great rate or look elsewhere

We stayed here as a family of four along with my sister and her children and my mum. Despite asking for rooms close to each other, we couldn't have been physically positioned more apart. My mum who was travelling solo was given a room upgrade which was great for her but she had a room right next to the pool...

Great spot with the water out back and a shuttle bus to Paihia but a bit disappointed this only ran until 5pm. I would also imagine it is great for families with the pool, but we were surprised it was 4 star. The rooms had no air con, the beds had an old fashioned scratchy checkered woollen blanket and our...
