We booked three nights after Christmas and were upgraded to the Kings retreat... And what a retreat it was! The room had two balconies to enjoy the spectacular view of the Bay of Islands. Chris and Donna were away for 2 of our nights and we were well looked after by Irena and Dwayne. We enjoyed a wonderful home cooked...

I booked my partner and I into the Queens Quarter apartment for a two night escape from Auckland. The room was spacious and clean, the 4 poster bed in the master bedroom is a nice touch.. We had two private patios, one outside the master bedroom and the second outside the lounge. Both patios are private and provide beautiful views...

We spent three wonderful nights in October 2013 at Crisdon Castle with Chris and Donna as the perfect hosts. We stayed in the Queens Quarters and enjoyed our own privacy with being able to come and go at our own leisure without interrupting anyone else. The views from our suite were postcard picture perfect. There were many private terraces to...

On our two week vacation in Roratonga and New Zealand, Crisdon Castle was our very favorite night. Just about as soon as the 6 of us arrived, we decided we didn't want go anywhere else for the evening. Donna helped us get dinner delivered so we could enjoy our full night there. Cris made us a fire in the enclosed...

Six of us spent a wonderful evening at Crisdon Castle in Pahia. The accommodations were outstanding, the views spectacular, and the experience enjoyable for all. Although the weather was blustery, Cris and Donna have created a number of comfortable spots protected from the weather to enjoy the scenery and landscaping. The rooms were nicely decorated and well stocked. The hospitality...

We honeymooned in the royal suite some three years ago and my husband surprised me for our 3rd anniversary with another night in the same suite. It did not disappoint. The view, the roman bath, the breakfast, the linens used - all of it is fabulous - not to mention the service from Donna and Chris. Just fab!

Great views of the bay... that has been said in almost all reviews. We went during off season to have quite time, but we were put off by the lack of care factor. The linen had a bit of humid smell and dusty as if it had been there for some days. No sink for dishes and no room service...

I went to Crisdon Castle in June 2013 with my parents to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. We stayed at Queens Quarters apartment which was just amazing.

“The pool make's the view great. Looks great and definitely adds something to the place. The thing is, it's only 1 feet deep. Not that much swimming going on ;) Knight's Nook is the cheapest room available. (the only one they had available for us those nights) It's good, it has nice spa-bath, great bed, spacious and is filled up with nice details to make it complete! When i get to Paihia, i'll definitely stay here again.”
