After not being able to find an available room in the first five Hotels in town we stumbled upon Kensington. Boy, are we glad the other places were full. The owners are very accommodating and helpful about what is around the area for eating.
I enjoyed my stay here. The motel is located near the city centre and is handy to food outlets. The unit had a nice homely feeling and was very clean. The hosts were friendly. I will be coming back next time I am in Whangarei.

What a great place. The hosts were friendly & helpful regarding nearby facilities. The units have a good kitchen, comfortable beds and good showers. while not new they are very will maintanced and so very clean. Value for $ I give this tops.
