I usually wouldn't write a review, however I don't want someone to have the same experiences I had. I payed $70 for this room so I wasn't expecting anything too grand, however my expectations were still too high. To put it bluntly, I have had far better experiences and sleeps in $20 hostels. I had to sleep with headphones in and it was still broken countless times due to others flushing toilets, water cylinders filling up, hearing entire clear as day conversations, and the incredibly loud karaoke coming through the floor from the pub downstairs was just the icining on the cake. The cleanliness was subpar, room wasn't as depicted in photos, and the general hotel and room was beyond run down and quite grubby. Wouldn't recommend to anyone unfortunately. One positive thing though, is that the woman I dealt with in the bar to get my key and the woman I checked out with were both pleasant.

Good town centre location for a budget price. Dated but well maintained and very clean. Next to the bus station but parking a car can be difficult - the staff allocated us a parking space. It has a restaurant which we did not try but we did enjoy the bar facilities. We only drink beer but there was a reasonable choice at low prices. We found the staff on reception and in the bar to be pleasant and efficient. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Our front room faced the bus station and so obviously went quiet over night.

Right in the centre of Whangarei you find your bed in a hotel steeped in history. Comfortable and clean. Walking distant to my favorite restaurant the Fat Camel. Good cheap option. Many moons ago the Queen stsyed here, so surely good enough for me

If you enjoy old style hotels you will love the sweeping staircase at the Grand. We had a comfortable stay in the queen balcony room and it was great to relax on the balcony. The washclothes and towels were a touch of luxury. Booking in was straightforward and the staff friendly.
