Outstanding Roast at Home Delivered
Thanks Scenic Hotel Bay of Islands and the team at Nikau Restaurant for a delicious delivered roast meal on Sunday. It was perfect and had all the trimmings. Why do it yourself when you can't make crackling and gravy half as good I say! Great value and fantastic service.
Good quality hotel in quiet location
We had one of the upper floor rooms with views over the nearby woodland. Approx. 5 minute walk to the waterfront with plenty of bars and cafe's but a bit further to the main part of the town. Very convenient for visiting the Waitangi Treaty Grounds. We only used the restaurant for breakfasts but were impressed with the selection on offer. Room clean with a nice balcony.
Not quite what we expected
Very quiet. Very clean. No water view. Nice on-site restaurant that we only used for breakfast - reservations were supposedly required. Beds were the worst of our entire trip. Failed box spring with a too-soft mattress over top meant that we constantly rolled toward each other in one direction and felt that we were in a hammock the other. Small kitchenette, but no flatware and no china. Just coffee cups; but no coffee maker. Open loft was just strange.
The hotel is well located with very welcoming staff. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and well positioned with free parking close to the block with good laundry facilities. But the breakfasts let's it down if only the presentation was more appealing with attention to service rather than the clock.
Nice Hotel in Quiet Location
Set in a quiet spot just a short walk from the waterfront, this hotel comprises several 2-storey buildings behind the main hotel that houses the impressive, high wooden-ceilinged reception area and dining room. Our ground-floor room, accessed directly from a path lined with flowers and shrubs, was clean and comfortable. It included a walk-in shower and some individual style that made a welcome break from the type of chain hotels that we use for convenience in North America. Our dinner and buffet breakfast in the hotel were very good and the staff were particularly friendly and helpful.
