On arrival, we were greeted by our host Lee and later by wife Marlene. As we were all very warm on arrival,Lee's first words were " How about a beer?" Lee nor Marlene could have been more hospitable. Our room was large, airy, clean and welcoming. We all sat on the table outside the room and chatted. Our hosts assisted... More

Stayed at Whitianga for just a night, which, in hindsight wasn't the best idea- we didn't quite catch a low tide time at the Hot Water Beach. The property has 2 rooms, with a separate entrance - and my only complaint is that the walls were paper thin! We heard our neighbours late into the night. Marlene has the sweetest... More

This was basically a converted garage into a room. There is no thought or enthusiasm gone into their business. Room was bland with mismatch furniture. Breakfast was done with as little effort as possible. This is no reflection the owners, as I did not meet them.

The room was adequate but the walls thin and lacked any serious sound insulation with intrusion from the next room. Set high off of the State Highway 25 the view from the road and the main house is great; alas the guest rooms look out across the off street parking and the pretty garden. Facilities were passable and internet access... More

This was a disappointment. Firstly the advertising said lovely views from the living area - but this was the owners place. The B&B had no views at all. Then the TV was an old clunker with 3 poor channels. Finally their was no soundproofing between the units and we were kept awake listening to every word of the long conversations... More

Nearly 10 years ago my now husband and I were helping to put on a large music event for new years in Whitianga. After the event was finished we were exhausted and the idea of driving back to Auckland was overwhelming but we were too broke to stay anywhere for the night. Some friends of ours decided to find a... More

We had trouble finding a place to stay over New Year so had to stay quite a way out from Whitianga. The accommodation comprised of a few rooms built into the side of a house on an estate, but what a house! We were made to feel so welcome. On our arrival we were sat down on the balcony and... More

Johanna & Paul made us very welcome from the very first moment. Almost like being one of the family! The view is absolutely awesome and our first opinion was that New Zealand couldn't get much better than this. Our first trip was so good we stayed a second time! We hope to return soon for a third.... Highly recommended

Paul and Johanna are the best hosts you could possibly have at a B & B. The accommodations are simply wonderful. The view from Centennial Heights is one of the most breath taking views you will ever see. The next time I travel to New Zealand, I will stay at the Centennial Heights B & B, without question, and so... More

Centennial Heights provides pleasant luxurious hotel standard accommodation accompanied by bed and breakfast ambiance in the beautiful New Zealand seaside community of Whitianga. Hosts Paul and Johanna are very friendly and provide excellent recommendations for activities and dining in the area, while Mollie the collie was a great guide dog on our beach walk. Our room and bathroom was very... More
