What an awesome place to stay! The rooms were spacious and very comfortable. The beds were comfortable. Newly refurbished bathrooms with great large shower. The towels are fluffy. When we came in the hotel and we were greeted with a warm and friendly smile We were very grateful to the service we had even though we had checked out earlier. We would recommend the resort and hotel to anyone. So once again a big thank you to all at the Scenic Hotel, Bay of Islands New Zealand.
