Kingsgate Hotel Autolodge Paihia
Ranked #14 of 43 Hotels in Paihia
Reviewed 8 December 2017

Recently, spent one pleasant night stay at the Kingsgate Hotel Autolodge Paihia. The room was clean, had a large balcony, and all the amenities that I required. The hotel did not have an elevator, so it could be awkward if you had a lot of luggage and are on the second floor. I found the stairways to be very narrow. I had a very good sleep as the bed was very comfortable. The lounge and restaurant is very nice and has a beautiful view of the waterfront. Overall a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Second Floors have balconies and more privacy

We stayed here one night. Rooms were above average, well equipped and comfortable. A clever feature I have not seen before was a long desk top/shelf opposite the bed which ran most of the length of the room. A good part of this was covered in carpet and was designed for putting suitcases on. Worked really well. Staff were friendly enough. Good location a short walk to the centre or for us the ferry to Russell.
A massive negative for me was the wi fi. You only got 30 minutes free after which you had to pay. Why? Surely any hotel these days should have free wi fi? We had 2 iPhones and an iPad where we needed wi fi access for emails, WhatsApp’s and checking things on the internet. I am not talking about streaming films or anything like that. If the management are reading this please do something about it. I have reduced the rating from Very good to average for this reason.

Aneesh on the front desk was arrogant and unhelpful. I was checking in and he said "do you know where your room is?" I said 'well no, but hopefully once you've told me I will". He gave me a map, and literally the room was upstairs and right behind reception. We booked a slot for the hot tub (which was more the temp of a tepid bath). We asked for towels and he pointed to a shelf right beside him at the front desk and said we had to come around and grab them ourselves. The spa jets were on a set timer for 20min (according to sign) but they went off after 15. When we walked to our room it was about 6pm and there was a room service tray with pizza and wedges left over. We walked past it numerous times that evening and in the morning when we were leaving... yep. It was still there. Gross. Won't be back.

This hotel is having very nice location just near to Bay. They do not provide rooms on ground floor to elderly people, even though you request. NO FREE WIFI.. It is just 50 mb in lobby, which you will finish in 10 minutes. Very near to Town centre and all restaurants and bar. Room size OK. Ample parking space.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are better. Easy to shift your baggage...
