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.

If you were lucky enough to get a sea view room then you had fantastic views over the Bay we unfortunately didn't and had to make due with a view of the tennis courts. The hotel feels dated the rooms were clean and fresh but there was no air conditioning, no safe in the room and free wifi only available...

Recently back from our second visit to NZ, and this was the only hotel that we used 2 years ago, that we actually asked the agents to book for us again. Picturesque location by the Waitangi Treaty Grounds. Rooms have small veranda outside, mostly with interesting views. Staff friendly and helpful. A swimming pool and washing machines available. We recommend...

A very nice hotel with a good restaurant.I think they could have better than instant coffee at breakfast and they did not provide Decaf tea. The rooms would benefit from Air Con. The buffet dinner was a shad boring.
