No daily room servicing was offered, although you could ask for a change of towels and rubbish removal. I felt the place was unloved and under-serviced. The owners need to pay more attention to the guest experience.

Pros: Tiki Tiki Ora nestles in a corner of paradise with spectacular views across the Bay of Islands. Our hosts, Mark and Angelique, were charming and entertaining and regaled us with their fascinating stories of adventures in the Mediterranean and English stately homes. If you are interested in memorabilia, art and classic cars, particularly Ferraris, Mark will not fail to amuse, while Angelique will go out of her way to make you welcome.
Cons: Unfortunately, our stay was over too soon and we had to depart for home.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: We loved the beautiful location and very helpful staff.
Cons: If I was staying for longer I would be frustrated by lack of bench and shelf space in bathroom.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Really liked this place, location on the seafront but a short distance from the bars, etc, meant it was quiet enough but still close to the town and only a five minute walk from the quay for boats out to the islands. The room was well laid out and spacious with its own private patio. A very comfortable stay, we really enjoyed it.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: Perfect location. Fishing charter and skipper John are awesome. Second time to Hananui and taken the scnapper fishing charter both times. Probably wont be our last of either. Super comfy rooms with everything we needed. Friendly and accommodating host as well just to top it off.
Cons: Nothing
7.0 Good
Pros: Unbeatable Russell waterfront location and rooms of a reasonable size and standard are the main advantages of suite 9 at Hananui. We enjoyed sitting on the deck, although it’s really shared with the people next door at times. The beds are good and it’s generally very quiet at night.
Cons: This is traditional NZ motel accommodation, not a luxury experience, despite the top price. You are paying for the location. The furniture and equipment are basic. No daily room servicing was offered, although you could ask for a change of towels and rubbish removal. I felt the place was unloved and under-serviced. The owners need to pay more attention to the guest experience.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: A very warm, friendly welcome with lots of useful advice, including booking us into the excellent restaurant next door. The room is really spacious and comfortable. The location is excellent - right by the sea- perfect for a relaxing stay.

Pros: The two managers were so great. They were incredibly friendly, helpful and quite knowledgeable. They both went out of their way to make our stay in the area wonderful!
