Whangarei, New Zealand
Reviewed 12 July 2016

Great location, handy to ferries, buses and shopping centre. Great hospitality, and daily service of rooms. Continental breakfast superb with Artisan Breads and top quality Jams provided.. Loved the freshly squeezed oranges and walnuts in their shells. Staff extremely helpful and curteous. Only downfall was the creaking floorboards as you walked to the bathroom in the middle of the night.

Many thanks for your kind review M5809TDglenda. Insofar as we may be haunted in this 1880s Heritage-listed mansion, we know the ghosts are happy and friendly.

Many thanks to our host Scott. Right from the start, my mother and myself were treated as welcome members of the Admiral Collingwood Lodge family. Our room was equipped with comfortable beds and crisp linen. Each room has tea making facilities with own sink and refrigerator. Breakfast provided each day entailed a wide variety of breads, cereal, condiments and freshly...

We are delighted (but not surprised) that Scott was such a good host to WhatsOnStraddie and your mother. Your experience is certainly what we aspire to achieve for all guests and Scott certainly personifies our hopes. Many thanks for this kind review.

We stay here once each year when we visit the Sydney craft show. It is really clean and inviting. There is free street parking, a short walk to the ferry and also to the bus to the city. Very nice cafes are close as well although we always drive to Harvest Vegetarian Restaurant at Rozelle for dinner. The hosts are...

Of all our guests, the one's who come year after year give us great joy. Our proximity to White Bay and Homebush exhibition centres is handy and, as you Sandra T have identified there are some great restaurants nearby (offering an extraordinary variety of fares). Thank you for your lovely review.

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the room. Spotlessly clean, large & comfortable. I thought the staff were friendly and genuine. Would definitely stay here again. Breakfast available downstairs in a comfortable garden setting.

Nice, clean accommodation close to the city. We stayed in the tree tops room and it was quiet and cosy with everything we needed. The room has an ensuite, kitchen and coffee machine. Breakfast is included. Parking is on the street but that wasn't a problem. The manager is friendly and very helpful. I would recommend staying here. The building...

Thank you for noticing the restoration of this Heritage building, bellinda2015 - it was very much a labor of love - from our first view of the place from the street (see the Admiral's Blog on the website), there has been a constant positive vibe. which most of our guests intuitively tune into.

We stayed here last year and again this week and have noticed that: The rooms are still clean and well equipped. Breakfast ingredients remain extensive and good. The current management is not as personable and guest friendly as previous incumbents. Some plants in the garden were lacking water and others in need of pruning. Overall it is still as described...

Thank you blackbjl for drawing to our attention your concern (which we share) that our standards may have slipped, when you stayed. We have taken steps to reinstate the high standards you have the right to expect. Our garden is being renewed all the time, but at this time of the year, it is naturally not as delightful as in...

Great place to stay! We were very close from the city, but in a quiet and nice house. The breakfasts were wonderful and our room too. We really had a good stay. You only have to take the ferry to go to the center and you have a wonderful view of harbour bridge and the opera.

My family and I enjoyed our two day stay. The location is excellent, easy walking distance to the ferry, bus and local shops. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Nice to stay at a place like this with history and charm rather than a soulless, generic apartment. We would be happy to stay again.
