Aotearoa Lodge
Ranked #11 of 18 Hotels in Whitianga
Reviewed 24 February 2017

The room was a good size and very clean. The tv gets only 4 channels but we only sleep in a room. It took us 35 minutes to walk back from town. The bathroom was nice, shower only. I would love to stay again.

The hotel does arrange package deals with tours. We did a tour package that was perfectly managed. I wholeheartedly recommend letting them arrange tours locally and to Rotorua.

Located just a few minutes' drive from the town centre in a lovely garden setting

There was a mix up with our booking and they had us in a room with one bed instead of two, however this was sorted out.

The room was very clean with nice beds and linen.

Free breakfast was basic, but adequate.

Staff were friendly.

I stayed here with my family 4 nights in december and we had a great time. Comfortable beds, clean rooms and super nice and serviceminded straff. For us it was the perfect location, quiet but just a short walk to the beach. It is a family owned hotel and we highly appriciated the personalized reception. You feel like home here. Thank you

We booked a suite which came with a small kitchen and two beds. Beds were kind of soft/uncomfortable but did the job.

Internet was horribly slow, but I guess it's expected in such a small town.

We had to kill about 4 bugs (3 small flies, 1 mosquito) flying around our room/bathroom.

There were random $50 surcharges if you messed with the TV settings or if you failed to wash any dishes.

Water pressure was also kind of mediocre, if you are picky about that.

Loved staying at this hotel, the rooms were HUGE, and they had a full kitchen as well, which helped with the costs of eating out. The staff was friendly during the check-in process and was able to give you information about the area, directions and was even able to give me tide information. As for the room itself, the only bad thing I can possibly say is it had an interesting smell to it. I'm not sure what deodorizer they are using, but if you have a scent sensitivity, I would definitely ask to make sure they don't use it in your room. The beds were comfortable, and I had a decent night sleep here. The shower was on the smaller size, but it had good pressure and was able to take a nice hot shower in the morning.
