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...

We had three nights at this motel. It was more like a holiday flat than a motel, but with serviced rooms. We are very glad we chose to stay here.
