This facility is very close to the dock and all tours. Even though we had checked out, the manager let us park at the hotel which saved us $NZ7. Some rooms overlook the sea. Some do not. As usual for New Zealand, coffee making facilities with fresh milk are provided.

Nothing wrong about the Admiral's View lodge!!! Spacious clean rooms and nice bikes you can borrow for free to wander around the nearby paradisiac sceneries!!! It even has private barbecues for the lamb or beef lover in you! Close to everything but not directly in the center of it so you can feel quiet and intimate. Looking forward to visit... More

We absolutely loved staying at the Admiral's View, Craig couldn't have been nicer...he helped us with dinner suggestions, travel tips and even gave a hand fixing our broken GPS. The room was very spacious and even had a stunning ocean view. The location is perfect- you can walk to everything, the bed was very comfortable and the room was immaculate.... More

The motel is back from the hustle and bustle of the waterfront - here you will be welcomed by the helpful couple who run the motel, and enjoy a cook yourself Barbie in the evening, meeting up with other holiday makers if you wish. The room is large and comfortable with everything you need for your stopover. The only small... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Admiral's View Lodge, we appreciate your lovely comments. Unfortunately our area is only renown for it's citrus fruits which are sadly out of season at the moment. We have wonderful Avocados available and most of the other fruit is brought in from further south. Our units are self contained and most people... More

Convenient location, with bay views and clean, modern and well equipped rooms. Nice people running the place. Only gripes were that the price is on the high side, and walls are a bit thin. Someone in the room next to us had a cough, and it was pretty audible.

We appreciate you taking the time to post your comments. I was surprised to read your comment relating to thin walls as most guests have made comments on how well insulated the walls are compared to other properties. We find that if you close your windows and use the air conditioning units noise transference is minimal. More

Large efficiency room, huge bathroom and well stocked kitchen. It was a walkable distance to town, and you had a nice view of the beach. The hotel was located in a quiet area. Free wifi. There is a bakery & grocery store a short distance away.

I admit that I am a hotel snob and was not too sure about staying here but I have to say, I enjoyed it. The room was clean and up to date, Craig was more than helpful and the location was just fine for me. The walk to the beach front is very short and the view from my room... More

We stayed 3 nights at this motel and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We had a balcony studio on the first floor. The room was large, bright and airy with sliding glass doors at one end and a window in the kitchen area at the other end. It had air conditioning and free WiFi. We liked the motel's position, off the... More
