“Right on the foreshore”
Reviewed 29 November 2011

We couldn't get any closer to the bay than being across the road, although our room wasn't facing the foreshore, it was only a short walk down the front. The room was good and comfortable. The staff member (we only saw one) at the front desk was friendly and helpful - having a bolt cutter easily on hand to assist with a broken lock on our suitcase. We ate breakfast, which was the usual fare. We had two nights and would return to this little town again.

My partner and I stayed at the Autolodge for 3 nights during the World Cup in an ocean front suite. Upon arrival we were greeted by a very friendly receptionist who guided us to our own underground car parking allocation. The room was spacious with a seperate bedroom and dining area / lounge room. It was decorated in modern tones and had a great functioning kitchen and large bathroom. We went to the bar during the very reasonably priced happy hour with one of the most beautiful views straight onto the waterfront. The breakfast choice was large and the staff very helpful when a different choice of egg was requested. A private spa heated spa area is available to book and was really nice. The hotel is in a perfect location just metres from the shopping, restaurants and ferry. I could not recommend the hotel enough and we will definately be staying at the Autolodge again. Many thanks staff for a pleasant stay.

I was over for the rugby World Cup, and between the semis and final headed North, so spent a few days in Paihia. Found this hotel with great sea views, substantial buffet breakfast, reasonable costs, large rooms fully equipped with a kitchen and washing facilities. Recommended.

I stayed in this hotel from Sunday 18th September 2011- 20th September 2011.
The restaurant/bar is on the first floor of this hotel, there is no lift access, there is a lift on one of the residential blocks. My breakfast was delivered to my room, but I could not join the rest of my tour group for breakfast or dinner in the evening, this was most disappointing and I would advise any wheelchair user not to use this hotel. seamus.harrold@ul.ie

We spent 4 days in Paihia, staying at the Kingsgate. It was great. The room was nice and the location was excellent; right across from the beach. The room was clean and everything was as expected. Would definitely stay there again.

We were going to the Bay of Islands Jazz and Blues Festival and booked on-line using Kingsgate /Copthorne/Millenium own website. Got a fabulous bargain - $109 per night on a Saturday including a full cooked/continental breakfast for 2 people - surely you can't get better than that!
There was a spa and a fitness center - but we didn't use them.

Room Tip: We weren't worried about a sea view room, but I guess you could try asking for one.

One of the best Kingsgate Hotel as compared to others that I have stayed. Good location, good value with town centre nearby. The rooms are well renovated I thought. If the gym hour can be extended to 10pm will be fantastic.
Great place with no regrets.
