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.

... go for a walk and ended up walking to the Kelly *** Sealife aquarium which took us 1hr. We then walked around for an hour and saw penguins, sharks, fish, eels and so much more. At the cafe we tried to get money out so we could catch a bus back to the hotel but it wouldn't let us get money out. So we walked back to the hotel (1hr walk) and it rained for the last 25mins. We got back to the hotel at 6pm. Got ready and met in the lobby at ...

Still, they were a lot easier to manage in the toad-mobile with a working clutch rather than its broken predecessor. We also quickly learnt the real danger of driving on New Zealand’s roads was not the wave, swirl and curl of the tarmac or the long climbs and falls…it ...
... class on Monday so we found a computer (lack of wifi in NZ is annoying!) and booked ourselves a bus home. We also discovered 'book me NZ' - a great activities deal site, and booked ourselves a 50% off boat tour for the next morning. We made dinner in the hostel again and then went into town and found a nice restaurant to have desert. We decided to share two hot chocolate brownies and ice cream between us and they were amazing! Then it was an early night for us before our 9am boat ...
... 8211; via the galley and hood – before emerging on the deck once more and making our way to the stern. Some of the others are running low on air at this point so they buddy up and surface while the rest of us spend a few more minutes enjoying the wreck before we head up. We all agree it’s a really nice wreck dive. Once we’re in the boat (it doesn’t have ladders so Linda is inelegantly hauled aboard!) we spend a few minutes heading over to ...
... shattered recently!! I had a shower then we decided to take a stroll back down to the lagoon and cook burgers on the BBQ, so we stocked up at the supermarket then headed down, we was soo unprepared and ended up flipping burgers with a plastic knife!! They where very tasty burgers we was going to go for a drink after but we was all knackered so went straight to bed ...
