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.

I had the lovely opportunity to have an interview for a job at 35 Bar and Aquarium. This place is technically two separate bars/restaurants but owned by the same person.

... br> We knew that if we booked accomendation with the driver, we were guaranteed a night's accomendation at their recommended place. In Paihia, it was Base. We had the choice of booking one or three nights and we chose three as we had heard the bay of islands is absolutely amazing and very popular in the summer time. There was also a day trip deal going on for Cape Reinga, and we figured out we got it for free as it came with our pass. Result one day sorted!! ...
So says the Halifax Herald headline today (yesterday in NS). Another blizzard for NS, Cyclone Pam for NZ. Home and here, Mother Nature continues to reign.
We were squarely in the path of Pam's first hit on the North Island. Preps are the same – fill up the tank,replenish the wallets with cash, stock the larder and hope for the best. When all was said and done ...
... I just snorkelled the whole time and used the empty deck of the boat as a dive platform (and no!!! I didn't capsize it doing this) The peace and quite was very soothing and all to soon the boat was full of fed and watered tourists all heading back to harbour. Mike (ably assisted by the dainty Michelle) gave it the beans on the return leg, getting a fare 13 notts going and getting the rig into race format, with the keel being hoyed over to ...
