“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2011

We spent just one night here on our Rugby World Cup Trip and just wished we could of stayed longer. The room was enormous and very well equipped with large kitchen, living and sleeping area and the bathroom was great with the spa bath and robes provided. We were on the first floor and had a wonderful view out to sea. Sky Sport was a real bonus for us as we could watch other World Cup matches. I cannot recommend Admiralty Lodge highly enough.

We came to stay here for our anniversary and while organising the accomodation with the motel I found them to be very helpful.
The rooms were perfect for what we needed and it was just perfect for our first weekend away with no children. The morning paper was good and the cleaners did a great job, we got back to the room after a day out and everything was made up beautifully. It was just what we needed. The only thing that could have been better was the pool temperature, it was JUST under perfect.

My husband & stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in February and we were very pleased with our stay. Althought the hotel isn't within walking distance to the main part of town, the the size of our room and the spa bath made up for this. The room also had a sofa for watching TV, a large balcony overlooking the ocean, and a DVD & CD player. Parking is free at the Lodge, and restaurants & shops are about 5-10 minutes drive from the hotel. Internet is $5 for 50MB. All of the rooms were occupied with guests, but the Lodge was quiet and peaceful. The room was fully equiped with kitchenette, stove and fridge, which would be ideal for those who don't want to dine out. The bed was comfortable for two people, although it was basically 2 beds put together. If you are keen, they provide a delivered hot breakfast for a fee. The beautiful beach is across the street, and the lodge offers a pool and little putt-putt area. We would recommnd this hotel to anyone who is looking for a getaway in Whitianga.

Whitianga is a small holiday resort at the top of the Coromondel Penisular with miles of sandy beaches and close to a spectular coastline. The Admiralty Lodge is situated on the outskirts of the town overlooking the beach. I had a ground floor unit which comprises a kitchen, bedroom with king bed, a sitting area and dining area with large flat sceen tv. ( small tv in the bedroom ). There are also two single beds. There is a large patio overlooking the beach across the road and a heated swimming pool is a few steps away. Highspeed internet for a nominal charge and ample parking.|No restaurant but good breakfast to room. Try 'Salt ' restaurant in the town near the harbour. At $200 per night not cheap but value.

We wanted to spend a special 3 nights in a 5 star motel overlooking the sea for our 42nd wedding anniversary. We had a most wonderful time. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royality. There was even a nice unexpected surprise waiting for us in the room, which was very much appreciated. The room was great, the bed enormous, the spa bath devine. I have travelled a lot staying in many motels aver my working life and I have to say that this was right up there as one of the best. had a fantstic time, also highly recomend "The LostSprings" Hot pool experience package deal
