Jan 2015 visit. We were booked into this establishment by Trailfinders UK. Our room was really a self catering apartment. Every detail has been thought of - sockets where you need them, mirrors where you need them, catch on door to hold it open, and of course excellent free wifi. Comfortably furnished. Nothing too much trouble for the staff we...

We arrived at coromandel late in the evening to stay at a house we'd rented for a few nights. The place was awful, we left straight away even though we had no where else to go. We'd passed the Admiralty earlier on, thought it had looked nice, and headed there in hope. The office was shut but a notice on...

We never actually stayed at the Admiralty Lodge. The intention was to, and a booking was made. At the time of the original booking we were quoted a rate, which was agreed to and confirmed by email. One month later we tried to increase our booking by adding an extra night, it was at this time that the original booking...

This motel was very nice and well equipped. However, it was the most expensive place we stayed while in NZ and we do not feel it was worth what we paid in comparison with other motels. The owner was nice. The breakfast was just ok - the hash browns they served were from frozen. I would not recommend getting the...

Sorry we don't remember the room number, however, it was upstairs, on the end and overlooking the water. Beautiful room and magnificent view. The malfunctioning shower hose was replaced very quickly with care and apologies. Loved the bathroom, loved the room. The room we were lucky enough to experience had an annex area that could be closed off from the...

We spent two weeks in NZ in December and after arriving at Whitianga we decided to stay longer than planned (4 days). The location is beautiful: the Coromandel peninsula combines the beauty of the sub-tropical forests so characteristic of NZ (Fern and Kauri trees) and the beauty of the shore line (Cathedral cove, Mercury bay, etc.). The motel is situated...

It is on the main road, so it is noisy, which means closing all windows, etc. to try to keep the noise down There are bright lights advertising the hotel outside of the windows and poor blinds, so it is light in the room at night. The walls are paper thin, so you here everything going on in the rooms...

My last visit in New Zealand was to Whitianga and stayed in this wonderful motel. Superb is the only word I can use for this motel. Beautiful studio with small kitchen, lovely bathroom, huge bedroom/sitting room with good dining table and chairs. Then a really cool veranda to sit out on and admire the wonderful view. All totally spotless and...
