We were very excited to stay at this hotel due to the pictures on the hotel website and the reviews of other travelers. It was the most expensive hotel from our stay so we thought it was going to be a real treat. Unfortunately, it was not. The hotel is average at best, and I'm being generous. You can't beat... More

We were really looking forward to our stay at the Beachfront report after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. It was to be our most expensive accommodation of our New Zealand trip and for $200 a night I was expecting something special. We were offered an upgrade to a beach front unit for an additional charge but declined due to the... More

We loved this place for all the same reasons as everyone seems too. First, you can't beat the location right on the shore. Second, Kate and Paul do an excellent job with the guests. When we decided we wanted to add an extra day, they were able to more than meet our needs. Third, our rooms fully lived up to... More

Great location at the sea edge, just a walk down the garden for a sunbed, swim, kayak,hot tub or BBQ, which is why I guess they call it a resort. Paul the friendly manager couldn't have been more helpful and advised on local restaurants and trips, plus local shops. It's well located for Whitianga and for trips in the area,... More

We absolutely loved the Beachfront Resort! Loved it, loved it, loved it! Kate and Paul were super sweet hosts and the setting was perfect. We were just steps from the water! Our unit was spotless and comfortable, and the kitchen area was well equipped. It even had salt and pepper grinders! We enjoyed lunch on the deck overlooking the ocean,... More

This is a charming little place with large, comfortable suites, well stocked kitchenettes, and a beachfront yard complete with bbq and hot tub. Close to restaurants and shopping. The hosts were friendly and helpful.

Deciding my visitors from Finland needed some time out with their small baby in a place which was beautiful to look at, entirely safe for the little one's first swim, and comfortable, I booked the Beachfront on trust. "I love this place" said Mr Finn - clean, white kitchen, wooden floors, lovely bathroom and compact." A far cry from many... More

RIGHT on the beach, this is a really pleasant place to say. We were received by Kate and Izzy, who went to great pains to explain the facilities and the location of local shops etc. We had a great time at this friendly, family-run property, good parking, good facilities including a laundry room. The bed was somehow strange, though. The... More
