“High Price Below Average Room”
Reviewed 28 March 2005

We stayed at the Kingsgate in late February 2005. Apparantly it was still holiday season and finding a room anywhere was not easy. We were able to get one at the Kingsgate for well over $100 US. The room had three twin beds and was right near the entrace and stairway to the restaurant. Needless to say it was a bit noisy at times. The room itself was clean but small and a bit dated with respect to furnishings. We were going to stay two nights but decided to find something else, which we did in Kerikeri. The of the Kingsgate is great and I'm sure that someone in that large hotel was a much nicer room than we got.

I stayed here February 2002 and April 2004 and not much has changed besides the name!

For the price, which in NZ terms is moderately high it's an average place.

The Location is really good, on the esplanade, near to the stores and the pier for Russell and the Bay of Islands. The views from the restaurant are excellent over the beach and into the bay.

The rooms were clean, daily maid service, there is table tennis and pool and even a jacuzzi in the basement.

The Complimentary bicycle had seen better days, but it was sturdy enough to cycle over to Waitangi and back for the afternoon.

I didn't eat an evening meal in the restaurant, but the breakfast, contintental and cooked were absolutely fine with a wide choice of foods.
