My wife and I were on a short holiday from Brisbane. We chose to stay here after reading the positive Tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. Craig was very welcoming and gave very helpful advice. Clean, well equiped room with relaxing aspect. Highly recommend.

We stayed here for two nights, and this was our first 'motel' experience in NZ. Have to say that it was far better than the rubbish motels available in the UK. The room was great, large and well equipped, we had a room out the front with a sea view so very nice it was too. Craig was very helpful... More

We couldn't fault the Admiral's View Lodge. Having driven a fair way from Lake Taupo it was an oasis. Just off the main roads, it is nice and quiet. Shops and restaurants are a 10 minute walk. The room was very well appointed. Very good value for money. Nice views. Wonderful stay and would definitely go back.

Craig and Penny run a superb Motel particularly when 5 of us arrive for 2 days taking over 3 rooms on the first floor. Nothing was too much trouble and they knew the best places in town to get a coffee, drink or snack. Rooms were lovely and roomy (particularly when you have 5 for supper in 1 room!) and... More

friendly welcome with lots of useful advice. Value for money. Room and facilities as expected. In a quiet part of town but an Easy five minute walk to seafront, restaurants, bars, a couple of supermarkets and off-licences.

We had a great experience at this motel. The owner/proprietors live on site with their young family, and were very helpful, informative, and generous. This lodge is a "motel", so don't expect a resort, but the room was very nice, clean, spacious, with all of the "efficiency" items such as fridge, dishes...available, in walking distance of all in the town....

Thank you for your wonderful review. We agree our name does not describe us, but it's inherited as we started out as a bed & breakfast lodge and became a motel about 10 years ago. Our legal name is Admiral's View Lodge but we have begun calling ourselves Admiral's View Lodge & Motel to be more descriptive. More

We were thoroughly impressed with the Admiral's View Lodge. Our upstairs, sea view room was fantastic. It was spotlessly clean and had all the amenities you could want or need. The chairs were so comfy i almost had to be pried off to go anywhere. Great location for walking into town which we did do multiple times a day and... More
