Lovely old hotel. Room was good and clean, Service was excellent and everyone was cheerful.
Breakfast and dinner were top quality. My wife and I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and will stay there again next time we are in Tauranga. Will definitely recommend it to friends.

Chose accommodation close to the City and also close to a nearby resthome that we were visiting. We booked through Hotels.com who also recommended restaurants .. at the top of their list they should put this place for a great meal!! This was a place I would recommend to anyone. Clean and friendly with the most divine woodwork. A special of $35 per head was offered for a 2xcourse evening meal (either entree and main or main and dessert) which also included either a continental breakfast or bacon and eggs. Could not fault the meal and great to meet the evening chef who had originated from the Manawatu, same as us. We have come home and definitely intend to go back.

Room Tip: All rooms were great - book the Harbourview room if that is what you want.

Stayed at Hotel Armitage a couple of times last year, as this was pre booked for me i did not have much choice.As this is a lovely older Hotel which had a great homely feel to it I would not have any
regrets at staying here again.But unfortunately I had 2 bad experiences on 2 separate stays with
dirty rooms.As I mentioned these problems to reception staff on two separate occasions and both times they were ignored.Will not return.

Stayed one night. Room I was in was a bit noisy, as it was on the street front and there was some clanking noises that seemed to occur every 15-20 minutes. The hotel didn't look as if it had any maintenance since the 70's. The outdoor pool was tepid, even though it was advised as heated when we asked. Other than that the room was a very decent size. Great location as it was only a 5 minute walk to the waterfront where all the cafe's, restaurants and bars were.

Thank you for your comments. We do sincerely apologize for your disturbed nights sleep. In regards to the maintenance, we have restored and renovated the hotel and all the rooms to their former glory within the last few years. We are in the process of revamping the outside area also. We do pride ourselves with a historic look but we do make sure that the hotel is in working order.
For the clanking noise we have investigated and believe it to be the fridge which we have replaced to save any further disrupted nights sleep. We do appreciate your feedback as it helps us resolve any problems.

Had a 2 night stay here & found Hotel Armitage to be friendly & very comfortable which had a lovely "oldy worldy" feel. Rooms were clean with comfy beds.The continental breakfast was very nice with a good selection. Good off street parking. This hotel is in a great location making it handy to cafes, restaurants & shops etc. There's only one very small negative & that's the outside grounds which could do with an overhaul eg painting & updating etc around pool area & adding gardens Re view from dining room but on the whole this is a lovely hotel & we would be happy to stay again.
