It pays to shop around. We have stayed at other '5 Star' accommodation in Whitianga which were alot nicer, the staff more friendlier, and the rooms much cheaper than the Admiralty Lodge.
The rooms were spacious and clean but they didn't feel very private. The leather couch was slippery, uncomfortable and hard, and the beds were way too soft!
The bathroom was located in the middle of the apartment so had no external windows. The room fogged up rather fast upon showering, and the condensation lingered for ages due to poor ventilation.
As far as word of mouth would go, I wouldn't recommend the Admiralty Lodge to anyone.
