Very very friendly & competent manager! Large cosy rooms. Perfect kitchenette, awesome seaview. The heated pool invites to swim before breakfast! Very clean all around. We stayed longer than planned, because we liked this place so much.

A great place to stay we were here for a week and really enjoyed our break. The pool is wonderful as is slightly heated so were able to make use of it morning and night. The staff are all very friendly and do a great job. Room is good size and traffic noise is not a problem

It's our 2nd time staying here and it is the best in whitianga We last stayed here 3-4 years ago and even with a change of ownership it's good to see same high standard is carried through. New owners and management are so lovely. And the motel pet dog MASTI is the best and kept our daughter occupied for ages.... More

After six weeks traveling and countless hotels and motels, we found this oasis a welcome respite. The room was well equipped, and although our schedule allowed only two days, we could have stayed much longer. The room was spacious with a kitchenette, and restful seating area overlooking the ocean. The mattress was comfortable as were the pillows. I managed to... More

We decided to end our trip to New Zealand with a week to relax on the Coromandel peninsula. We had briefly stayed in the area on a previous visit and decided that Whitianga would be the best place to stay to explore the top end of the peninsula. The i-site pointed us in the direction of The Admiralty saying it... More

We were in Whitianga for a family occasion and only stayed the one night in the disabled room at the Admiralty Lodge, but found it to be a very pleasant stay. We had a disabled room because I have difficulty walking and at times (more often that not these days) need the use of a wheelchair. The room was easy... More

My Husband surprised me by staying here for 2 nights. We had a spa suite, with a balcony and view. Upon arrival we had chocolate and champagne. The views were amazing, and it felt nice and private. The staff were most helpful and assisted us with bookings and things to do in the area. If you have time, borrow the... More

It pays to shop around. We have stayed at other '5 Star' accommodation in Whitianga which were alot nicer, the staff more friendlier, and the rooms much cheaper than the Admiralty Lodge. The rooms were spacious and clean but they didn't feel very private. The leather couch was slippery, uncomfortable and hard, and the beds were way too soft! The... More

I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. The Star rating is provided by Qualmark, based on their strict guidelines and annual audits. I am not aware of any other 5 Star accommodation in Whitianga, except there are some B&B's and that is a different playing field. In regards to the condensation in the... More

Our room was very comfortable & the unit was fully stocked with all comforts of home. We had no noise issues & even the putt-putt (9th hole) outside our backdoor didn't affect us. There was 1 couple who played that night, but they were quiet & we had a calm, relaxing evening. The view was nice, but not close to... More
