The Kingsgate is centrally located and a short walk to the cafes and restaurants in Paihia. However I was disappointed with a the complimentary wifi as it was only valid for 30 minutes a day, before you had to pay for additional connection time.

Thank you for your feedback. Our wifi is set at a national level with the chain and is out of the hotels control.

A basic motel room. Adequate but nothing fancy. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Breakfast and dinner in the hotel were very good. Nice outdoor pool area but quite small. Very close to the pier where all the trips leave from.

Room Tip: All rooms face the car park

Non-residents are welcome here. Their all-you-can-eat evening buffet dinner is exceptional value. Oysters, green lip mussels, crab and prawn in abundance. Great salads, always a roast of the day with vegetables, cheese board and a selection of desserts. Comfortable dining room directly overlooking the bay. Good wine list.

Great location to the wharf and shops. The room was lovely, clean and modern. Beds were comfortable. Reception staff were helpful and friendly and we could not fault the service. Great outdoor pool, and spa, the children spent a large amount of time swimming. The restaurant had a smorgasbord in the evening with a wide variety of food.
Had a wonderful relaxing time can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Junior suite had wonderful view and with the ranch sliders closed, very quiet.

We were there as part of a coach trip. Staff very friendly, especially Billie in the restaurant, and no complaints about the room. Unfortunately the carvery/ buffet style got a bit much after three nights and on the third night there wasn't as much choice if you didn't want the carvery. However, the hotel was very well located for the wharf for the ferry to Russell and we walked to Waitangi (took 30 mins on a hot day) which we really enjoyed. Didn't have time to try the pool. Hotel needs a lick of paint and some of the staff weren't dressed very smartly. Just a minor thing.
