I live in whangarei so I know there is a shortage of good hotels. Since my house was rented out, me and the girlfriend stayed 2 nights here. Has pool, bar and restaurant. Nice friendly place, clean and warm. Would stay again.

We took the recommendations from trip advisor and booked this hotel it proved to be an excellent choice. The service is friendly and despite the person who greeted us at the desk also acting as the barman, waiter and room service it was remarkably efficient. We had a room overlooking the pool and harbour views the bed the room was spacious and comfortable. Soundproofing may be an issue if the hotel was very busy.
We had dinner the restaurant it has a very good wine list and the food was excellent if you stay we recommend you dine here as well (we didn't have breakfast).
We will definitely stay here again.
My wife and I stayed here for one night, the hospitality is excellent, thanks Brett. The food great. Is well located near a hotel and shops just around the corner.
This one nite stay was one of the best. Excellent service, great staff and even better food if thats possible, even wanted to take the chef home. Bed was so good, one of the best nites sleep in ages and the views from the room was amazing (over looked pool and hills watching sun rise) Highly reccomend to everyone wanting excellent personal service and situated away from the hussle of town.
Travelled with three young children for a weekend trip and initially asked for a one or two bedroom unit which they don't have so we stayed in their biggest studio unit with two queen beds and were given a fold out bed to use. The decor is a little bit dated but the room was clean and big enough to accommodate us. I must say that the customer service was brilliant - from check in right through to our departure - both at the reception and housekeeping, nothing was a hassle. As we had children we were given a ground floor unit that led out to the grassed area and swimming pool which was a bonus for us. Will definitely stay there again - great value for money.
Thank you for your review and kind comments. It is always great to receive good feedback about our staff. We do have a great team at Flames Hotel from cleaners through to senior staff and pride ourselves on our warm hospitality.
It was unfortunate that the room you stayed in is the one room that has not yet been refurbished and is due to be upgraded in the next few weeks.
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again in the future.
We only stayed one night at Flames due to visiting Zion Wildlife Gardens the next day.
The service and staff were fantastic. There was only one poor guy on the night we arrived doing absolutely everything. It could have been disastrous, but it wasn't as he was running around like a headless chicken, keeping everyone happy!
The food in Vie Restaurant was extremely tasty and very good value for money.
The only down point was the room. When we arrived early evening it was very cold outside and the room was freezing. The only heater was a small one in the back corner of the room which took ages to heat the room up. Much to my husband's amusement I took a hot water bottle with me, and thank goodness I did otherwise I would have been freezing. There were electric blankets on the beds which did help but the heating system could have been a lot better.
Breakfast was fairly basic, but very good and, as it was my husband's 50th birthday during our stay, the staff had put out some balloons and banners for me. They were very helpful and I would recommend a stay here.
Thank you for your feedback Lisa, we are pleased that you and your husband enjoyed your stay at Flames International Hotel.
It was a shame that the weather was not the best, and we have taken note of your comments regarding the heating in the room. We are hoping to install heatpumps/air co units into some of the rooms in the near future.
Yes, you did catch our Bar Manager on a busier than expected shift. Despite this, it was pleasing to note that all customers were served promptly and attentively.
Hope that you both enjoyed your whirlwind adventure to New Zealand.
