Labour Weekend at the Continental in Whangarei was a cracker! Beautiful weather and lots of families enjoying the facilities. Swimming in the pool, relaxing in the spa and cooking on the BBQ. It really felt like summer. Our accommodation at the Continental is well suited for families. Spacious rooms and different bed combinations suit all groups.
