“Great place right next to the sea”

Reviewed 22 March 2017

Very good and spacious rooms. Our room had a seating and dinner area, separate from bedroom. It had a kitchenette equipped with a microwave and all essential utensils. Location is amazing. The sea beach is right across the road and the harbor area is only 5 minutes walk from hotel. Very courteous staff and easy check in and check out. Some rooms have got large glass doors which allow nice sun light of the rising sun come into your rooms (depending on room location). We really enjoyed our stay here

“Perfect location in Whitianga”

My friend and I stayed here in March and found this motel to be absolutely perfect for us. The room we had was on the second floor, it was clean, tidy and had a lovely balcony looking out to the sea. Fully equiped with everything we needed. The best part was it backs onto The Lost Springs with its own gate at the back of the property and we could walk there and back and have a few cocktails !! The owners were very friendly and helpful and the location was perfect for walking into town and to the beach. It was quiet and I would defiantly stay here again.

Great location across the street from the beach and a short walk to shops and restaurants. One bedroom suite was modern and well furnished. The kitchenette was adequately stocked enough for us to We cook pasta for dinner one night

“We loved our stay"

Reviewed 29 March 2017

Our room was on the ground floor with sliding windows out onto a terrace with seating/table. Galley kitchen fully stocked with utensils,microwave,fridge etc leading to a lounge area with comfortable seating dining table. Plenty of space for luggage. The bedroom was compact but fine for a one night stay with bathroom which had a powerful shower. Check in /check out was easy at reception,courteous helpful staff.The pool area was clean and empty when we visited ...result.

What gives this place an edge is that its so near to town...10 mins walk and situated just across the road from the beautiful beach. Visit Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach if you are in this area

"Great Spot"

Grantands, 5 Star Review received 21st March 2018 from Trip Advisor

Great location, excellent facilities and the staff were great. We were in Town for a wedding and the location of the beachside resort, close to the esplanade, was one of the main factors for staying. If we’re visiting whitianga again we would definitely go back.

"Clean, Efficient and Convenient Location"

Douglas, 4 Star Review Received 13th March 2018 from Trip Advisor

Stayed 2 nights in a 2nd floor balcony apartment on our trip to the Coromandel Peninsula. Motel has a basic utilitarian design with our unit (room 716) having a kitchen, living / dining room, balcony with nice ocean view and separate bedroom that met our needs. The motel's host, Jill, was very hospitable and gave us good recommendations for places to eat. The motel is within easy walking distance to restaurants and close to Whitianga shops.

We hadn't stayed here before but hope to again. The room had what we needed and was comfortable and attractive. Our wifi played up and the very helpful hosts came up with a good solution. Proximity to both the Lost Spring, beach and centre of town made everything very convenient.

As we were in the corner room we had a view to the lake. Clean and comfortable. Small kitchen so we were able to cook dinner and make breakfast so this kept our expenses down. Onsite parking. Wide stairs to the top level.

Nice clean room with good kitchenette and balcony with sea view. The room seemed to be quite hot each time we returned. We didn’t use the pool, but it looked clean and our daughter loved the playground. In a great location - right near the beach and around the corner from main street of town. Good value for money.

"Immaculate hotel with ocean view rooms"

Suzanne, 5 Star Review Received 19th August 2017 from Expedia

After we were quickly checked in, we were walked to our room and provided with a fresh milk for our morning coffee. The room was fresh, light and tastly decorated, Every room was immaculate and the kitchen was stocked with all the dishes and utensils we needed. The balcony was big and the view was beautiful (ocean view). I loved the cute beach town feel. We ate dinner at a local Thai/Indian restaurant which was fantastic (menu provided in hotel info binder). My husband and I will definitely come back and stay at this hotel when we come back to this area.

It was our last stop on our holiday before heading home, and it was our favourite accommodation. Lovely room with resort feel. It was a very short walk to a gorgeous beach and walking distance to restaurants and shops. I would definitely stay there again.

“Comfortable high quality accommodation”

Robin, 9.2/10 Reviewed 5th April 2018 on

Great spacious two bedroom apartment (well more like a house!). Perfect for a family of four with a double room and a twin room. Separate bathrooms as well! Great cooking facilities. Very clean throughout and lots of little touches like nice soaps and shampoos etc. Decent little pool for the kids and very good tennis court with equipment provided. Easy five minute walk to town centre restaurants. Couldn’t have asked for more and it exceeded our expectations.

“Very enjoyable on night stay in a comfortable room close to the town center.”

It's a great place to relax. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The room has a spa bath. The view is great as well and all amenities are only a few minutes away, would love to go back. It would be great if each rooms parking was reserved. We went out for dinner and when we came back, we couldn't find any parking, someone else had parked at our spot so had to park on the road. Otherwise the place is great! Love it.

Everything of highest standard ... the private gate entrance to The Lost Spring thermal pools and Spa ! Upstairs apt - looked out to Sea . Town Centre - beach and shops/ restaurants in 2-5 minutes on foot.

Kitchen lacked an oven ( pizza !) and dishwasher ( a small Fisher & Paykel drawer machine is pretty much standard in this quality of modern carefully designed accommodation ) otherwise well equipped ..
Sky /Netflix not available . Only 7 standard free TV channels !??! Strange false economy .. even standard motels offer this across the country. We were trapped in whitianga by a storm event which closed roads with slips and floods - the lack of TV on offer was noticeable under these circumstances.

My husband and I are on a driving trip around New Zealand and stayed one night at the Beachside Resort. The management was very friendly and helpful, and the location is right across from the beach and close to town. The rooms were clean and comfortable with plenty of space. The only issue I had was that the bathroom was a bit dark. Other than that, it was a lovely place to stay.

NelsonNz, 4/5 Reviewed 19th November 2018 on TripAdvisor

A very spacious unit with an ocean view. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Resort is only a five minute walk to the shopping centre and restaurants and cafe. The first night of our stay was excellent, but the Friday night was not the best. I think the party was happening in another apartment which was not part of the resort but the loud talking and laughing went on for hours. It probably didn’t help that we were the end unit.
