Our family of four were given a one-bedroom unit on the ground level with 2 spare single beds in the living room. The view was beautiful! There was also a heated swimming pool which was being used by some guests when we arrived and the unit had a patio facing the pool as well. We were very impressed with the...

The owners of this motel have thought of every conceivable comfort known to man. The apartment is heaven with a luxurious bed, bathroom facilities, kitchen plus the lounge. Our view from the apartment was serene - we looked over the bay and totally tranquil. Order breakfast the evening before and it is brought up to the apartment, all you have...

We have stayed with this motel before and were just as happy the second time around. It offers well kept apartments and a great heated outdoor swimming pool. Although there is a moderately busy road separating it from the beach, the double glazed windows nullify any noise. It is close to the town and a shortish drive from great beaches,...

This is a lovely and welcoming place to stay. Large, comfortable and clean studio rooms with beautiful views of the bay. The manager has a good sense of humour and you are made very welcome. There are pleasant personal touches like the bike you can borrow and the little jars of milk..

This is by far the best place I have stayed in a long time. The staff are so helpful and they also have equiptment free to hire (fishing rod, mountain bikes, boogie boards, paddle boards, spade to dig at hot water beach, dvds and lots of others). The photos from other visitors or from the place don't do justice. The...

This was me second visit to Admiralty Lodge in Whitianga and I would definitely recommend. The unit (ground floor spa) was spacious, clean, and quiet - oh, and a great view! The bedroom got a bit of noise from cars going through the motel carpark as we left the window open, but nothing major. The unit has a bedroom with...

An excellently equipped room with spa and great view over Mercury Bay. Rooms have all facilities and are very spacious. A closed in Balcony provides a similar effect to double glazing and was great for a couple of cold days while we were there. Cooking facilities are provided but cooking which would leave room odours is strongly discouraged. Breakfast is...
