We stayed her for 4 nights and were pleased with the hotel. We eat in the restaurant every night and contrary to several reviews we found the food enjoyable and portion sizes quite acceptable. Plus the meal prices were very reasonable. Great Manager and a very friendly staff team.
The hotel is out of the city centre but well located for visits to Whangerie Heads and the great beaches in this part of the country.
We would certainly stay here again if we return to Whangerie.

I absolutely agree with previous review. Portions small and food average. Steak not good at all. One wait staff on duty who was lovely but, training needed. Not offered another drink, water not topped up. We had checked the menu online before deciding to eat here but, when we arrived there had been changes to the menu and not everything available. We won't be back sadly.

Very disappointing experience. Not only were the portions small but the food/presentation was not of the standard that you would expect at a restaurant that has cloth napkins on the table.
Steaks were not cooked to request and the seafood platter was stingy, never have I eaten fish that was so over cooked, the raw oysters were warm... and the quality of the salsa on the mussels would have been better out of a jar from the supermarket.
Then to top it off they had run out of most desserts!
If you are looking for a fresh, tasty meal Flames is not the place.

We stayed 3 nights family of 10. Service was great very welcoming. Rooms were what we needed. Kids loved the pool.
Quiet spot out of town with good walking tracks close by. Rooms clean with efficient room service. Nice dinner menu with reasonable prices and kids menu. Breakfast was nice too. Handy having free wiFi. Very great down to earth manager.
Great place for families would book here again.
