A last minute trip - Good place to stay

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 3 Dec 2023
We made our 2 night booking at the last minute. The location was excellent, on the main road in the middle of Paihia.
The room was clean and tidy and very comfortable. The bathroom and facilities were very good and it suited want we wanted for our accommodation.
The service on check-in was very good and helpful. We used the pool which was slightly heated and pleasant.

Hotel rooms are generally clean. I thought it was quite unusual for the shower cubicle to be raised above floor level , i.e. you need to take one step up. Somehow the floor becomes very wet after a shower. Can be quite annoying stepping on wet floor towel and having to mop up excess water. Some parts of the carpet running along the corridor is bald from wear and tear. Time to renew the carpet.

The Kingsgate is a great comfortable friendly place to stay . Would recommend. The restaurant staff were exceptional in friendliness and attending to any special requests. The hotel itself is just opposite the beach and easy walking distance to every thing including buses and ferries

Room tip: There is a microwave to use in the laundry areas

It was a very special occasion so decided to go for the balcony room, which was ($345) per night. The room did have a nice view. However, the bed linen looked like it had not been changed from the previous occupants. The pillow cases and sheets were un-ironed, which was something we have never come across before. The pillows were dreadful. We tried to phone housekeeping but there was no response. We then phoned reception and asked for some 'real' milk as I have an intolerance to the long life pots which were provided. I was told they didn't have any milk. We tried to use the air conditioning as it was really cold but the remote control for the bedroom was missing.

Room tip: There is a superb restaurant just down the road called Terra. Would highly recommend.

A lovely spot with a great view.
Check in was a tad drawn out and slow after a long drive.
Our room was lovely. We had a junior suite with a harbour view - these rooms are located at the front of the building and are really quite spacious. There is a lovely deck and outdoor furniture to sit out and enjoy the neighbouring surroundings.
Would definitely stay again

This place has sadly seen much better days. Stayed here recently thinking it was still the place to stay in Paihia. No. The room was below the standard of what you’d expect in a hotel. Stains on the carpet, the tv didn’t work properly and only a few channels working, the towel rack in the bathroom fell off the wall when I grabbed a towel and no soundproofing from the hallway and between the rooms. The restaurant was akin to a 1980’s coffee shop. The guy working in the restaurant didn’t know how to take an order and the breakfast buffet was embarrassing. Unfortunately there aren’t many good accommodation options in Paihia but I’d certainly recommend that people avoid this place until the owners invest some serious money on a revamp.

Room tip: Avoid the hotel restaurant.
