Because of Covid I had booked and cancelled rooms here several times over the past year and had amazing service from the manager, Lorraine. So it was so good to finally come and stay and meet her. The rooms were fabulous, one bedroom apartments that were comfortable and well appointed. Our rooms weren't the best position, ask for ocean-view if you want this, but we didn't spend much time in them anyway. Great beach to swim just over the road and a cafe next door. Easy walk into Paihia township for lots of great restaurants. With it being a work trip we had to move to the Copthorne for the rest of our time here and that was such a disappointment after the Sea Spray.

Really poor experience at this hotel. No one was available for check-in when we first arrived. For over $300/night the unit was tiny, the bed was very small & very uncomfortable, after one bad night we asked for a mattress topper so one of us could sleep in the lounge (that’s how bad the main bed was), and the woman at reception was rude & unhelpful. Hard to understand how this place could be part of the Heritage chain. We left a day early & went elsewhere. Such a shame to receive such poor service in our own country, particularly given the current struggling tourism industry - I would far prefer to have spent our money elsewhere.

Response from Sea Spray Suites, General Manager at Sea Spray Suites - Heritage Collection
Responded 7 Jan 2021
Dear Excursion614562, We appreciate all fair feedback whether complimentary or constructive and we would like to respond as follows: 1) Although the Reception office was unattended when you arrived, we were just a phone call away and the instructions are located on Reception Door on how to contact us 24/7 2) The majority of the beds in our one bedroom deluxe suites are queen sized, which is the size in the room you were allocated - this is generally standard through NZ motels & apartments 3) Rates are based on supply & demand and the first week of January is prime-time for many tourist destinations 4) You are right the sofa beds are not that comfortable but we will use your feedback to look into ways to provide additional comfort 5) It is disappointing that you note our behaviour was rude & unhelpful, unfortunately as we were 100% occupied we were unable to find you an alternative room & you interpreted this as rude - we genuinely thrive on providing exceptional customer service & we are disappointed we were unable to provide an immediate resolution. Nga mihi, The Sea Spray Team

We had two nights here in an ocean front room which was excellent. Reasonable sized room with lovely views over the water. The apartment is located about 600m away from the main wharf but it is an easy walk to there and the town centre. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. Would recommend.

We stayed for 1 night and were aware that we would not have a sea view. Check in was efficient . Our room was small but adequate. I would recommend removing the fragrant air diffusers in the room as the smell is overwhelming as you enter. Bathroom was modern and clean, bed comfortable. Living area clean and well appointed. An excellent fish and chip shop around the corner. Quiet and ample parking. The view from the room into the premises next door was a little depressing. We had a good night's sleep and it did the job.
