I wasn't going to write a review on our stay here until I read the condescending reply by the "Guest Relations Manager" Bruce to the review by RajNsmita. We stayed in the expensive ocean view spa room and I agree with Raj that it was hot in the room due to the corrugated iron on the outside. It was a bit like walking into a caravan. Yes it might be nice to be hot in winter but not in summer and they should have an air conditioning unit for the price charged. Whilst I had no issues with the cleanliness of the room and found the sheets and towels etc very nice, the bedroom was very hot and stuffy at night too. We had the window open a bit but the bedroom was right on the walkway and people were coming and going past during the night waking us up. I also agree with Raj about the spa. Contrary to the motel's reply, not all spas are the same. The bathroom was quite small and didn't have any atmosphere for a spa bath unlike many other hotels we have stayed in so why would you want to lie in a spa there. We enjoyed our stay in Whitianga and this motel was in a good location, had a nice view from the balcony and was clean and had a nice kitchen and living area but it wasn't up to the standards of other places we stayed in New Zealand yet is was the most expensive. It was definitely not worth the expensive price. Most of all though, I think managers should listen to the comments from reviewers and not mock them.
