We originally booked for Easter weekend, but a cyclone chaged our plans. My friend rebooked with ease. Originally reserved Knights Knook but eventually given the Royal Suite. Woohoo! Checked in late night unfortunately, due to flight delays, but Donna was kind enough to wait for us.

We were greeted with so many stars and a nice view of the milky way. Sunrise was breathtaking too as you can see in the pic. Perfect place for some r&r.

The other photo is just before sunset with low tide, still very pretty. Third pic is from inside the room and lastly, the bathroom. Enjoy!

We had a flight delay back home to fiji so decided on an impromptu trip up to the bay. Totally on a whim we booked into Crisdon castle. What a sweet place!! We stayed in the Kings room and were blown away by the accommodation and the view over waitangi river. Absolutely amazing bed to sleep in, the Roman bath was a neat piece of unexpected luxury too. The owner happily dropped us off in Paihia so we could go out for dinner and gave us an open checkout time- and the bed won't make you want to get up early. Thoroughly recommend for luxury time up I the bay, especially nice being just a few minutes from Paihia town.

After getting engaged in a sunny morning during our first visit to Crisdon Castle in November 2013 we had finally returned this time to say our 'I dos'. Our memories from 2013 served us well, the unmistakable views, swallows and tui's flying past the deck and very comfortable rooms. This time we hired out 3 or the four rooms for and had our wedding ceremony and reception at Crisdon Castle and honestly it could not have been more perfect. We arranged outside caterers and took up our own drink and wedding cake, the hosts were very laid back and accommodating giving the caterers full access to their kitchen facilities on the day and then storing the food and drink for us on the 3 days following that we stayed and relaxed before returning to Auckland. We had a total of 16 guests and I would say that 16-20 is probably a perfect number for the venue. It really was a perfect venue for us with all our needs met. If you are uptight and running to very tight timelines it might not be for you, but if you are chilled out and wanting to live the Bay of Islands lifestyle in all its glory for a few sunny days then I highly recommend Crisdon Castle.

Our travel agent booked us for 1 night so my husband could go diving as we are trying to explore a variety of dive sites. Paihai is a nice little town with a lot of places to stay and eat. Crisdon Castle is about 3 km up a hill from town and not really within walking distance because of the winding road back to town. We arrived at 245 pm - fifteen minutes before check-in. There was a note on the front door of what appeared to be a very large house. It said to knock or call for assistance. We knocked and a couple of minutes later we were greeted by a nice young woman who said she just finished cleaning our room. She said she would take us to our room through the house, which she doesn't usually do instead of using the outside entrance. She said to please excuse the messy interior - which it was. We walked through the living room that had some scattered things lying around a and breakfast area that had 5 or 6 tables that hadn't been wiped and still had food on the tops. We proceeded upstairs to a nice, small room with a king-size bed, fridge and usual amenities. We then used the outside entrance to bring in our bags. Parking was around the front so there was a bit of a walk to carry the bags. The outside area is a bit cluttered and in need of cleaning. At this point we weren't quite sure of what we had been booked into. When we got back to the room with our bags, we gave the room a good inspection and found it was very clean. The bathroom with it's spa tub was immaculate - different from the questionable inside and outside of the rest of the house - this was confusing. The fridge. Is fully stocked. WiFi was a bit slow but it was fine. The view was just beautiful. I probably wouldn't stay here again mainly because I'd rather stay in town. Note ....this is really a large house, more like a B & B than a hotel and breakfast is offered for 25 dollars - but I wouldn't eat here.......lots more places in town.
