There are many places to stay in the small community of Paihia and the Kingsgate is a fine choice. It is on the main road next to the water, has lovely big rooms, an outdoor swimming pool, and best of all free breakfast. Not just continental breakfast, the whole shibang of a breakfast with meats, eggs, toast, cereal, fruit, juice, coffee, etc...
The rooms offer the anonymous feel of motel rooms anywhere and so once inside you can forget where the room is actually located, this is a plus or minus depending on your preference.
Would recommend it for those needing or desiring a quiet, clean, spacious room with electrical outlets located in the right places.

As we pulled up to Russell (located directly opposite Paihia) our driver informed us that in the 1800’s it used to be known as ‘Hell Hole of the Pacific’ due to it being a stop-over for whalers who disregarded the law, set up ***** houses and ran riot, an altogether unsavoury lot by all ...
... and taken to pieces and number and shipped and reconstructed in Paihia. The grounds are beautiful showing all the native trees of NZ together with their flowers and how they are used. For further information please Google!!! Made our way back sitting on the beach gazing at the tranquil views. Another great day but busier than we had planned but you only come this way once,. Had.

... hot as we were trying to avoid getting sunburnt!
Diving always seems to make us tired so we just got some fish and chips for dinner from a local place and sat in a little park overlooking the bay, which was lovely.
The next day we visited the Waitangi Treaty grounds, NZ’s most significant historic site, where the Maori chiefs signed a treaty with the British Crown in 1840.
We first visited the Maori meeting house where we saw a terrific ...
