Had a wonderful stay at this Peninsula Motel Whitianga. Clean and reasonably priced. In a great location, with awesome amenities and staff. Our employees are all in agreement. And as a company we will be using regularly.

A good clean and friendly motel. Probably built in the '70s so is a bit dated but freshly painted on the outside I always like a decent shower so the low pressure shower was frustrating. Woul I stay again? Possibly. Most of the motels In Whitianga seem to be older so this may be one of the better choices.

I booked this motel for three nights initially but extended it further. The Peninsula Motel is in a brilliant location . It's a few minutes walk into the centre of Whitianga but set back slightly which makes it quite private. The units are great and have a well equipped kitchen and good safe parking. It is a very quiet and... More

Whilst it is a little bit older, it was still very comfortable and well priced. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Helped us with our cases and lent us a... More

Really well equipped and cool. Opening on to a lovely garden through French windows at the back. Large lounge and full kitchen facilities, comfortable and spacious bedroom. The proprietor is really nice, friendly, efficient and informative. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Loved Motel except for no phone in room and Sky TV channels were limited to just a few. Laundry could be improved also. You need to be able to do your laundry and dry it without involving the motel managers,

The cleanest motel we've ever stayed at! So comfortable and has everything you need. Serviced daily with fresh towels. Kids can play outside on the grass. Very quiet location and just a minute walk to town. Decor inside the motel is a bit dated but doesn't matter. Playground needs a revamp but that's all!
