We have stayed at Busby several times now. Just across the road from the beach and 5 min walk to Paihia shops. Plenty to do in the area. Very friendly and attentive staff. the units are quite small but have everything you need and are well maintained. We look for the RCI points deals and will be happy to stay again at Busby Manor.

We traded our timeshare week to stay here, as of course there's no overseas travel at the moment. So all of the guests that we met were also New Zealanders. The resort has a nice pool, but unfortunately there was a strong wind blowing most of the time and the pool was not heated, so we didn't use it. There is also a spa pool. Our one bedroom unit was fairly comfortable, although we always find the lounge seating fairly uncomfortable and this was no exception. The bathroom had a good shower, and the self-contained kitchen included most things required to cook in (which we did quite a lot).

Thank you for your comments. We have varied compositions for our rooms. Our tub chairs are not soft and cuddly but work well for some of our older owners who have difficulty getting out of chairs. We have introduced leather reclining/lift chairs into some apartments so recommend you contact us ahead of your next visit and we can move you into a room with a recliner or with a sofa instead of tub chairs

Great resort feels like home away from home. Property is well maintained. Staff are positive in friendly. There are many interesting places to visit near by. Some great eating places to. All located in a very beautiful part of our country.

Thank your for taking the time to provide your feedback. I'm glad to hear you had a break away from Auckland as it is so much quieter here and there was a lot more freedom to move around but unfortunately some tour operators struggled due to insufficient tourists in the area. Some of them are still finding it really hard. I'd be interested on further feedback on your low scores for value, cleanliness and our rooms at $103 per night via email manager@busbymanor.co.nz I believe you were in one of the two apartments remaining to be refurbished this year so this may relate to your comments- but they say never assume Thanks again for taking them time,

We had a great experience at Busby Manor in Dec. Even though we arrived early, the friendly team did their best to get our room ready and when we came back they kindly upgraded us to a 2 bed apartment as they knew we had guests coming to stay! The facilities were great, the staff were very good and gave us space but were there when we needed them too. The location was excellent and we had such a good week exploring the region both on the land and the water. We will definitely be coming back again. Thank you for making our week so enjoyable.
