Really enjoyed a getaway to this hotel. Fully recommend upgrading to the Seaview rooms with the lawn in front, great view out to the Bay of Islands and a nice spot to sit on your balcony and relax. The outdoor area of the restaurant and the poolside are also great spots to enjoy

Location is great, décor is dated, staff fantastic. Room was a good size but a tad dated. Pool area was really nice and you cannot beat the location. Sadly food was not up to scratch we had dinner and breakfast at the hotel but neither were of a standard that we would expect

Please can you advise if the Restaurant does a Roast Dinner on a Sunday please?
Best to ask the hotel direct? So far as we can recall the meals were good with plenty of meat on offer but we didn't stay over the weekend. During the week there can be major bookings with conferences when they put a buffet on but as guests you can still eat from the menu if you want.

No idea, they only list the restaurant as open for breakfast and dinner but who knows, email them and ask?

"Seaview room"
"Harbour view was lovely"
"Rooms towards the beach are modern and tidy."
"Lovely sea facing rooms can be requested"
"Try to reserve a room facing the water. Studio rooms are small so go for a larger room if available."
US$86 - US$175 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
