I stayed here overnight while attending a conference at the hotel and loved it. I enjoyed a beautiful view from my room over the well-groomed hotel lawn to its own beach, then a vista over the water of the Bay and a smattering of small islands. My room was spacious, immaculately clean and well appointed with tea and coffee making...

Some valuables were left in the room upon departure and staff quickly forwarded them onto the next destination. The lowering of stress levels by their actions was much appreciated. Staff were also helpful in providing directions to meet up with Kauri forest guides Footprints who have a great knowledge of the trees and land. Restaurant meals at the hotel were...

We stayed for a couple of nights over the busy holiday break at the start of January. The room itself was on the second floor (no elevator). It was very tired and in need of an upgrade for sure. The walls were very thin and could hear the neighbours talking through it at night. It had a lovely outlook though...

Had a really great time with my family. The rooms were fantastic and the staff great. The pool area was really neat. Had dinner and breakfast at the hotel which was clean and tidy. The hotel is close to the waitangi marae.

Last minute room (nothing else open at midnight). Room was luxurious and warm. Facilities were excellent. We were tired from attending a funeral in the far North and this was the only motel open that was prepared to accommodate us.

Spent two nights here and was almost completely happy with the stay. There is a good pool area and the hotel has a resort feel to it. I would highly recommend this hotel if you want a resort hotel to stay at. The pool is quite big with different areas. The hotel is in an amazing location with beautiful views....
