This motel had all I needed, I was very comfortable. Lovely to have seating outside looking over the garden too. Beach towel provided on request too - not used on the boat trip too cold for me! Parking right outside.

I didn't see a coffee plunger in the room and he quickly produced one. I liked the room layout and small kitchenette. Furniture was comfortable and the outside...

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.

Thank David H
