“basic motel, adequate for one night stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2013

we had a basic room next to reception on ground floor; room was reasonably clean, kitchenette was handy; we had a connecting suite to another couple we travelled with; bed was reasonably comfortable. We found it difficult to get our bearings and understand the layout of Whangarei.
Staff directed us to a nearby pub for a meal.

We arrived late one evening, without a booking or any prior information about Kingswood Manor, but couldn´t have picked a better place if we had tried.

Clean, comfortable, spacious and with parking right outside our room it was everything we wanted. The separate kitchen was great for making breakfast or light meals during our stay, and Kevin, the owner, was very helpful in suggesting places for us to visit.

Free WIFI included in the price.

Would absolutely recommend this place to anyone.

We spent three days here as a base exploring Whangarei and points north and were very satisfied. The rooms are clean and efficient, and the daily maid service was excellent. We greatly appreciate the friendly Kiwi reception we received. Upon arrival you receive cookies and fresh milk for your morning coffee or tea.

I stayed for two nights at the motel when on an educational excursion to Whangarei. The room was spacious and the beds were of good quality. I did find the shower strength on the weak side and had to spend a fair while getting a decent wash. The location was superb and very handy to central Whangarei. A real treat and worth your while!

Room Tip: Rooms further from the road are very quiet

Booked here as the place I usually stay was full - it was convenient, great kitchenette, lots of easy parking, clean - just what is needed. Only down side is when you are downstairs and the people upstairs get up really early to leave!!!

Room Tip: Choose an upstairs room furthest from the road so the traffic is quieter and there is nobody tap dan...

We stayed here when we had a family member pass away suddenly in Whangarei. We chose it randomly and had no expectations other than a place to sleep as we were out all day etc etc. However I felt compelled to make sure I posted a review as the service here was so friendly, the rooms were fresh and clean. We felt like they had everything you need in a motel eg electric blankets on the bed! Lovely clean place to stay and very good value for money.
