Reviewed 27 June 2012

By the description of the place online I thought it sounded amazing, but being a motel I thought that it probably wouldn't be as good as it sounded. To my surprise the place was somehow even better than I'd imagined and there was absolutely nothing that it lacked for a couple getaway. I have nothing but good things to say about this place, awesome service (nothing is a hassle for the owner), amazing location on the waterfront, pool, spa in the room, sky tv, wifi, heating, privacy.. it ticked all the boxes. Highly recommended.

I stayed for one night, our host, Ambuj, sorted us out the right room for our situation. It was very clean & had a nice big leather couch! I loved watching the sun rise over the ocean in the morning! Nice big shower over a spa bath & heat pump. It was nice and quiet too! I would definitely recommend this place!

We travel a lot within New Zealand and we are very fussy about accommodation, that is why we never pre-book a motel before examining it on site. We visited several places in Whitianga but Admirality Lodge Motel stood out very clearly as the best place to stay in town. It is extremely clean, spacious, cosy and very comfortable. On top of that it was affordable an dthe host is very helpful.
We decided to stay one more night because we really loved the place. Will definitely pre-book this place should we go back to Whitianga.

Room Tip: Room 109 sleeps 4 comfortably, we loved it.

One of the best motels I've stayed in and has a well deserved 5star rating. Me and my partner stayed here on a friends suggestion and were pleasantly surprised. The rooms are mordern and spacious, with beautiful views of Mercury bay. The lodge has a nice warm pool all year round, which is great. The owner is a wonderful host - friendly and cheerful. He was most helpful when we reached late night after our drive from Auckland on a Friday and even organised our dinner, when all the restaurants were closed. His pet dog (puppy) is an added bonus. It was the most relaxing weekend break I've had and returned to Auckland refreshed. Definitely recommended.

My friend and I had a wonderful stay at the Admiralty Lodge Motel. Our room had a small kitchen area, the bedroom and living room were large and the bathroom was lovely. I particularly liked the tiles in the bathroom and the hand pumps for liquids (e.g., shampoo, soap, lotion). The motel was located across from the local beach and near Hot Water Beach so the views were amazing. In addition, the breakfast was delicious. The owners were gracious and made us feel welcome. I would definitely stay again and give the motel my highest recommendation.

Huge apartment, well equipped, lovely bathroom, massive balcony, helpful staff. We stayed here two nights and were very comfortable. We did have to use the car to reach the restaurants but perhaps if we had had more time we would have walked although it would have been a fair way. Worth bearing in mind. We recommend.

Room Tip: First floor looking out to the ocean.

As well as the above being true the views out over Mercury Bay and the islands are just fantastic, and we were in a 1 Bedroom downstairs apartment - the view from the upstairs Studios can only be better.

The apartment is very well equipped with a decent sized fridge / freezer, oven, microwave, and plenty of cooking equipment. The dish washer was a real bonus as we ate in more than most couples would - the views made it easy not to go out.

The new owner is a fantastically helpful and friendly man, seemingly with all the time in the world to help his guests. We appreciated the advice he gave us - and everyone should visit 'The Lost Spring.' Great place for lunch too.

We recommend this property to everyone, and we shall be back to stay again ourselves.

Room Tip: 109 in the corner is quiet and also more private
