The Best Hotel in Bay of Islands”

The best hotel to check inn in Bay of Islands. The view is amazing, beach front, nice pool spa and delish breakfast buffet. Only downside is carpets and bathroom look tired and old.

Service really lacking ”

The hotel was not fully operational. The spa wasn’t open, breakfast was only available till 0900, there was no lunch available and you could not even get a soft drink or coffee till 5pm (or water for that matter). There was a family sitting close to us at the pool, and we gave them our soft drinks we’d bought with us as they couldn’t get anything for their kids! The rooms were missing the usual utensils (tea spoons, remotes for TVs). When we asked for a drink, or tried to check in we were treated as a nuisance. This is a spectacular location with incredible pools, such a wasted opportunity.

Location!!”

This is the first time we have stayed here. Pool area fantastic for families. Rooms nice and clean. Beds were awesome. The restaurant food was extremely basic. Breakfast consisted of well done scrabbled eggs and tinned fruits. Felt under staffed - which maybe true in these COVID times. But all in all a nice stay.
