Reviewed 3 April 2017

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.

“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

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

"Whitianga - Fun and relaxing"

Geoff W, 4/5 Reviewed 15th April 2019 on

Stayed in Whitianga(pronounced Fitti anga) in April 2019. Weather was superb, there weren't many tourists about and school holidays had yet to start. The beaches and coastline are picture postcard perfect and there are plenty of things to do in the region. It's not expensive but it's not cheap either. Overall I highly recommend a holiday in the region

"Really good experience"

Check in was easy and the gentleman most helpful in showing me where to find parking for our apartment. The apartment was lovely and clean and set out well. It was only a short walk into town.
I had expected it to be right on the beach with beach views but it was set behind another motel but still only a bit back from the beach. It was on the ground floor and looked out onto the back of houses and the car park but was quiet.

Great facilities and walking distance to some great restaurants. Enjoyed the pool as it was a little windy for the beach which is just across the road. Check in was a little delayed due to peak season but was able to use the pool while we waited which was awesome!

My wife I stayed for 2 nights. The resort is 1min from the beach, and 2min from the Main Street.
The rooms are spacious, clean and have everything you need.
The service was amazing - we needed some laundry done after a week on the road, and they did a huge load for $10 - it was washed, dried and folded within about 3 hours.
We didn’t use the pool, but saw other people heading there.
Highly recommended

Great location from the railway station. The place needs to be refurbished. The rooms are very, very small. For the price, relative to the cost of living in the area. It is affordable. You have about a 1/2 walk into town

"Great Find"

Anthony A, 4/5 Reviewed 7th February 2019 on

The hotel is well presented, clean and ideally located for both the train station and the ferry port! Literally minutes away!
It’s a backpackers hotel so it’s not going to be glitz and glam, however, it was very well presented, the room was very clean, the beds were comfortable and the shower was hot with good water pressure.
The bar was neat and the staff were very polite and friendly. The pool tables were free to use and the drinks were reasonably priced.
We only stayed for 1 night but could have certainly done a few more if we were spending more time there.
The decor was a little dated, but to be honest Devore was not going to be a deal breaker.

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.

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.
