Hotel is located just out of Town on Buffalo Beach Road which was easy to find particularly as there is a well lit blue sign outside. Hotel is literally a stone throws away from the beach and our room had a balcony area with great views. Wi-fi is complimentary and works well and the hotel had a guest laundry which...

We stayed for one night and enjoyed our stay. It’s a smallish motel (not a five-star hotel), but what I really liked is that the owners seem to take a tremendous pride in making this place as good as they can. It’s almost like a bed-and-breakfast experience in a motel. (It really feels like a bed-and-breakfast experience when they bring...

The Admiralty Lodge is excellent. Originally planned to stay 4 days, but stayed 6 days. The room (downstairs) was great and very good value, the staff were very welcoming and always happy to assist and we could not fault the Admiralty Lodge at all. Only a couple of minutes drive from the town so easy to go in for a...

We'd stayed here 15 years ago when it must have been close to new. The room we had still felt fresh but there were small things that were a bit "off" - the (hidden) toilet cistern ran intermittently, the microwave door was cracked, the curtain around the bed (?) was partly off the track, and the bathroom toiletries were all...

Had a lovely stay very clean and spacious. Had a top floor room and a gorgeous view. Management professionally friendly, staff very nice and happy to help. I did have to laugh every time I went to the toilet was obviously built for someone much much taller than me.. recommend worth a stay.

We stayed here for a night. The motel is not right in town and you need a car. However, it is very well kept, clean and modern. The unit was very spacious and bright. Also had a large patio and is just across the road from the beach, which is very nice. Very nice pool also.

Very nice accommodations - upstairs room with a stunning view; amenities were a cut above. The friendly and informative proprietor really made our stay exceptional, loaning us a shovel for the hot water beach and advising on what to do on a rainy day.

Nice spacious room, comfortable bed, spotlessly clean, stunning view, warm pool, really friendly staff, let us check in early.I doubt I would bother ever trying anywhere different to stay when I go back to Whitianga. All that said, I did notice a "for sale" sign out the front. Hopefully any new owners will keep the place just as perfect.

Stayed for one night on our guided tour in a ground floor suite. Very spacious and spotlessly clean with great sea views. Free wifi and excellent cooked breakfast delivered to our suite. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend the Admiralty Lodge Motel
