Reviewed 23 October 2013

We stayed there for a night at this motel. Couldn't believe it. It was the best place we have ever stayed at. The owner /manager was friendly and cheerful. We will stay there again everytime we go to Whitianga. Thank you for the friendliness.

Room Tip: get an upstairs room. Fantastic view.

Stayed there on our recent family trip to New Zealand. Place was big and spacious unlike the other motels we have stayed in. Definitely worth the money you paid for if you are looking for a place to relax.

What a lovely place is Whitianga and Admiralty lodge is a perfect place to stay to enjoy this part of the world. Arrived in rain and gloom and woke to a beautiful view on our doorstep. Walking distance to the charming town centre and wharf.
The accommodation was well appointed, spacious and faultless.
The manager and staff were very friendly, helpful and genuinely interested in doing whatever they could to make our stay better.
Could not recommend a better stay.

We needed a weekend away and lucked into this great motel in Whitianga. The manager was very friendly and helpful and had good suggestions as to what to do and see in the area and good recommendations for restaurants. Nothing was too much trouble. Our room was on the first floor and was absolutely huge, with a large closed-in balcony with picture windows that you could slide open (if it hadn't been the middle of winter) The views of the beach were sensational. The kitchen was well equipped and we opted to cook one night and go out the second night.
There was a large spa batch in the unit which we soaked in for ages.

It was about a 15 minute walk into town centre, and there are several good restaurants for all budgets.

Will definitely stay here again

Room Tip: The first floor rooms have an uninterrupted view.

We enjoyed the large and well-appointed rooms during our stay of several nights. This was the perfect base to explore the Coromandel and Mercury Bay's attractions. Quiet, attractive surroundings, far enough outside the centre of Whitianga not to feel rushed. Thank you!

What a wonderful peaceful place to stay, my husband and I spent our wedding anniversary here, we were after somewhere comfy, with a view and breakfast and the Admiralty did not disappoint. The motel is across the road from the beach, the view from our room was outstanding, the peaceful sound of the waves and the seabirds just set the scene. We had been in Auckland for 3 weeks for work and had the best night sleep, the bed was so restful and comfortable, our room had a spa which we made good use of. The room had everything you could need, very tastfully decorated, new carpet, some wonderful art work, sky tv, kitchen, air con, and very spacious. The owner/manager is very friendly and helpful and his little puppy too cute for words. Breakfast was included in our tariff and was very fresh and tasty. If you are after somewhere with great views, to relax, chill and get a great night sleep then this is it.

Room Tip: Try to get a room upstairs and see if there is one with a spa available

Wonderful place to stay, room was great and the host was excellent. We stayed two nights, comfortable bed, spacious and just a thoroughly pleasant experience. The owner could not do enough for us, lending us the spade for Hot Water Beach to free internet at our leisure. Would definitely stay again and recommend. LisaS
