Beachside Resort in Whitianga is not beachside. It is on Eyre Street, a sideroad which, at the corner, ends at the beach. I wonder what qualifies it as a resort rather than a motel? As we approached, there seemed to be 2 reception offices, but discovered that the one at the rear of the drive is for the rental condo...

Good value but pretty old rooms and uncomfortable beds. Close to the beach but not on the beach as implied by booking.com. The rain didn't help but even in the sun they could do much more with the place as it's tired.

We only stayed for one night because it was a last minute decision to stop in whitianga. Did not regret that at all. Was a lovely place to stay. Super clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was really nice and modern and clean. The only complaint I would have is that you only have a certain amount of...

Stayed for 1 night last weekend and really enjoyed the stay. For a motel much more like an apartment than old style motel. Very hot night and even with fan found the room very hot, Air Con?? The light in the bathroom created too much heat to have it on. Otherwise very enjoyable

My friend and I stayed here in March and found this motel to be absolutely perfect for us. The room we had was on the second floor, it was clean, tidy and had a lovely balcony looking out to the sea. Fully equiped with everything we needed. The best part was it backs onto The Lost Springs with its own...

We stayed here for two nights and were generally happy with our stay. Large room with kitchen and separate bedroom/living room. Nice pool area on the grounds, and pretty close to everything in Whitianga. There are two things though that prevents me for giving full score here. The first thing is the lack of A/C. I see that it has...

Our room was on the ground floor with sliding windows out onto a terrace with seating/table. Galley kitchen fully stocked with utensils,microwave,fridge etc leading to a lounge area with comfortable seating dining table. Plenty of space for luggage.

Great location across the street from the beach and a short walk to shops and restaurants. One bedroom suite was modern and well furnished. The kitchenette was adequately stocked enough for us to We cook pasta for dinner one night

Resort is very close to everything i Whitianga, and even a sneaky little back access to the lost springs. Rooms were a great size, however the bed was so uncomfortable, it was so solid! we woke up feeling like we were 100 years old!! The bed in the lounge was even worse. Could also hear the people in the neighboring...

Dear caitlinpoppy Thank you for writing a review. Sorry you found the bed uncomfortable and you had inconsiderate neighbours. We have very few complaints about our beds but we accept it is very difficult to please everyone as preferences regarding firm or soft differ from person to person. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Whitianga. Regards...

Very good and spacious rooms. Our room had a seating and dinner area, separate from bedroom. It had a kitchenette equipped with a microwave and all essential utensils. Location is amazing. The sea beach is right across the road and the harbor area is only 5 minutes walk from hotel. Very courteous staff and easy check in and check out....
