We as a family and the larger family had a great time of getting together & the raucous laughter in the foyer early hours was so much fun. A great place for a wedding. Our room was just...

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of 3 week holiday and tour. Excellent location, beautiful views. Rooms good. Buffet dinner first night good choice. Lovely 20 minute coastal walk into Paihia is a good thing to do or if feeling less energetic hotel runs a free shuttle service every half hour

One of the best things about this hotel was the view, out over the gardens and pool to the water. The room was fine and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast and dinner were both excellent, and the staff friendly and helpful as everywhere in New Zealand. The one thing the hotel lacked was any atmosphere, as it was a tour...

This hotel is situated right on the waters edge, a great place. It is about a 20 minute walk to the shops bars and the ferry to the nearby town of Russell (worth a visit). Rooms are well equipped with all you need. Breakfast was plentiful and appetising, served in a pleasant environment. Staff are friendly and helpful. A few...

This hotel is just on the edge of Paihia about a 25 minute walk to the ferry and boats; It is on the waters edge and our room looked out across to Russell. Hotel is a bit like a motel accommodation but views are great. We went for a walk on the first night and saw a stingray. The staff...

Hotel is very near beach and Waitangi treaty House. Excellent location. But room and hotel overall rather shabby, over-priced, and food on poor side. Hotel staff very helpful though. rooms have a patio which is nice though twice hurt myself tripping down steps which were not clearly marked.

We visited on a tour so I can't review on price. The hotel is quite nice. Our room had no air conditioner but cooled off nicely with the ceiling fan. It was a good size and the was comfortable. Lots of power outlets and fair wifi. We didn't use the facilities but the pool looked nice. It's right on the...

This resort is a bit shabby but peacefully located next to the Wiatangi memorial. Our room was located on the first floor overlooking the harbour. There was no elevator nor help from resort staff - not good as we are in our 70s with dodgy backs and hips! The pool was in a natural setting surrounded by rocks and very...
