“Road trip holiday to North Island”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

Cant fault the welcome or the atmosphere and all very clean. There is a little updating required in terms of the fixtures and fittings but if you want a hotel that has an nice ambience then this is the place to stay

The hotel is in good condition and well located to town and airport. Has views out over the harbour.
The rooms are large and spotless, we were impressed how clean the room and hotel guest area's are. We had great service and the food was very good, they have won a number of food awards - you will see and taste why.
Would definitely recommend and stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms on top floor get view of harbour. Rooms on lower floor closer to the pool ares and nice garden...

Very helpful staff. Clean rooms. Stayed towards the end of the hotel and it was very quiet. Local store very close by. Very good experience on our first night in NZ. This was our first stop on the way up to the Bay of Islands. The Whangerie falls were lovely.

We stayed for two nights and the room was great, good value, well equipped and quiet. The manager was friendly and assisted with local directions. The "gormet" restaurant had a great menu but let itself down with very slow service, despite almost no one eating there. Perhaps that was the problem and they are short staffed. The beef dishes were delicious but the belly pork and duck dishes were seriously undercooked and very,very fatty. Avoid!

Stayed here on an overnight trip from the far north. Robin the manager checked us in. Check in was very quick. The bedroom was well equipped and clean. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff here. We had a meal in the restruant which was amazing. Tim the head chef is exceptional. The calamari and steak were cooked to perfection. Ahmed, who was on bar staff and waiting was a really friendly guy. We also got a late checkout at no extra cost. Hotel rates not much more than a backpackers for a double room. Overall a five star experience at this hotel. Would definently stay here again.

I feel bad writing this review because the staff at Flames International are just so friendly. I stayed here last week with my work, only for 1 night and as I arrived and left in the dark, I can't say anything about the views are are reportedly very nice. This hotel is out of town so not the most convenient. It is also smelly. I am not the most smell sensitive person, but on coming through the front door, it was apparent that all was not good. It was a difficult smell to describe - it wasn't obviously damp, more like a nursing home smell combined with stale cleaning fluids. However the reception was very welcoming. My room was large but oh so tired. Maybe not all the rooms are the same as mine looked nothing like the photos on the their website. It had 1980s wicker work furniture with terracotta/blue cushions and the bed was just a bit too soft. Internet is all a bit of a hassle as you have to create an account with Telecom and pre-load it before you can do any work. Having said all of this, the bathroom was nice. The communal areas were a bit cold but the barman (who has the most fabulous hair) was really, really friendly and there was a good selection of New Zealand wines and other drinks. Breakfast was adequate although I was in a bit of a rush so didn't try anything cooked. I didn't pay myself to stay at Flames as it was a work do so I can't say whether it was good value or not. It could be a great place but at the moment it just looks so tired that maybe it needs a rest...

Room Tip: Try and get the most recently refurbished ones
