These look good but we're concerned that they might be a bit souless and also not Qualmark rated. Any comments? Especially about the pool?
We were really looking for something with a either a bit more character or with a really good pool, but a lot of our '1st' choices in Paihia, Opua or Russell either don't take children or are full on our dates. We're waiting on replies from some but would like advice- Crows Nest looks stunning but is it too far from beaches and restaurants etc? And is Russell more interesting than Paihia as a base?
