This hotel is situated right in the heart of Paihia and facing the waterfront and literally 25 meters to the nearest restaurant and bar on the strip. You can’t find a better location in Paihia. The rooms are well equipped with a great air conditioner, large beds, mini fridge, tea & coffee making facilities, but the cleanliness of the rooms lets this hotel down. When we checked in, the carpet between the two beds was very wet? The fridge contents from the previous occupants were left behind and the fridge was stained with food. The light above the vanity was flickering which should have been picked up by house keeping and the bedside tables had rings left behind from cups and glasses and were not wiped down and the toilet did not seem to be cleaned and smelt. The toilet is in a separate room where the shower and bath is located in, and this room was clean and the towels were clean. It appeared that house keeping were selective in what they cleaned in the room. We did report the flickering light and food left in the fridge and the Manager of the hotel who was lovely and dealt with the issues in a very timely manner. The staff at the hotel are friendly and efficient. The pool is great and you have a view of the waterfront from the pool. There is plenty of parking at the hotel.

Great location, but the cleanliness and the limited WIFI let the hotel down. With the WIFI the Quota of 50MB of free data is too small considering the cost of what you pay for the room and other hotels in the area provide free unlimited WIFI.

Hi there,
Thank you for your feedback, we really appreciate it and I am very sorry for the less than optimum service on your room, this is unacceptable and I will pass this onto our Housekeeping Manager to ensure this doesn't happen again.

Stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed our visit. So handy to the wharf for excursions and also close to Waitangi.
The swimming pool was a bonus for our grandchildren.
Good facilities with a bar and restaurant by the pool

Wonderfully situated on the sea front Kingsgate is ideally situated for access to Russell, Waitangi and other centres while being handy for Paihai's shops, bars and restaurants. Our room was spacious, modern, well equipped and well serviced during our three-day stay. The front desk staff were excellent as were the bar staff.

The best thing to say about Kingsgate is that its location is ideal--near the harbor where you can catch the Cliffs and Caves cruise and then the next day catch the Great Sights bus tour that explores Cape Reinga, 90-Mile Beach and the Te Paki sand dunes (all terrific sites). The hotel itself is clean, the restaurant has tasty food, and the room provided comfortable beds in a quiet, relaxing atmosphere. In the near vicinity are shops and restaurants. The place lacks an elevator, however, which is a hassle if your room is on an upper level. Also, we had to ask for extra linens each of the three days we were there because enough were not stocked in the room. We shouldn't have had to do that.

If you are in Paihia, that's a very good place to spend the night. Located on the waterfront, close to Paihia wharf and beach. We stayed in a suite having a gorgeous view over the Bay of Islands. The suite was very good, parking and wifi for free, but unfortunately the breakfast was poor.
