Pros: Fabulous location on a lake with beautiful birds on the doorstep, really lovely comfortable and spacious accommodation, friendly and helpful hosts, very knowledgeable about the area. Gorgeous sunsets, harbour and beach to enjoy and explore. We walked around to Rings Beach which was also lovely. The bridge at Kuaotunu was closed due to storm damage which unfortunately meant a long drive to access the Hot Water beach and the Cathedral cove area. We opted to take the 'short cut' road which was pretty grim, mainly rough gravel with some very precarious parts, the locals do drive pretty fast and furious!! Apart from that, fantastic area, we loved it.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: First time staying in Whitianga, the occasion was to propose to my now Fiancee. Fred was excellent, very accommodating. The Room we stayed in was clean and perfectly sized for a couple! Nice little deck to face the sun which would have been very enjoyable if the weather had played ball (was very windy the weekend we stayed 25/10/19 - 27/10/19). 2 Minutes walk from town, 15 minutes walk to the lost Springs. We walked everywhere and didn't drive at all which was great, perfect for those who enjoy a drink or 10! A very enjoyable and tidy place to stay! We will be back to celebrate our anniversaries going forward!
Cons: Nothing we didn't like, just a few pointers maybe? We had to move the couch to view the TV from the bed. The driveway was a little confusing as we arrived late it was hard to see which driveway was the exit and entrance and where to head once singed in. Maybe put a sign on the fence pointing the way as you come up and around the back? Parking was a little difficult for a large vehicle (Nissan Safari). Very enjoyable stay none the less!

9.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Walk to the lost spring. Waterfront view and close walk town.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Location. Staff. Cleanliness. Furnishings. All great. Really impressed overall by the property.
Cons: The only downside was that the Apartment was not well soundproofed. Unfortunately the 'people' in the Apartment above us were very noisy, we could clearly hear all foot steps, voices etc and they had music on literally the entire night, which was loud, and could be heard through our ceiling. We checked out at 7am and it was still going strong. One if the idiots obviously fancied himself as a drummer, and his ongoing hand drumming on some unknown surface, to various hits including Metallica and Toto, vibrated through the ceiling, walls and subsequently the bed. No sleep due to the noise. Probably would not be an issue if the people in that apartment had been more considerate, and if the little drummer boy had stop taking meth long enough to take a little nap. This could likely be avoided by choosing a top floor apartment when booking.

A stay at Albert Number 6 Motel places you in the heart of Whitianga, steps from Buffalo Beach and 2 minutes by foot from Mercury Bay. Featured amenities include luggage storage, laundry facilities, and an elevator. Free self parking is available onsite.
7.1 Good
Pros: The staff/owner was accommodating and really nice at first. The unit we stayed in were good enough for an overnight stay (but probably not something you would stay in for a length of time).
Cons: We got told off for being too loud when we were just talking about the noise coming from the other room (noise that you don’t want to hear coming from the couple next door). It was just assumed that we were the ones making noise (maybe cos a bigger group?) and then staff/owner walked out after telling us off. This wasn’t really a pleasant experience at all. Tried to subtly explain what might have happened in the morning but was brushed off that it was noise coming from outside the property; well it’s not nice to tell your customers off for something that they didn’t even do? It affected our other friends experience as well who were staying in another place as they got too conscious about possibly getting told off for chatting.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Wally & Maire are fantastic hosts. No, they're not hosts, they're more like family. Wonderful experience! They really couldn't have done enough for us. My partner and I had a fabulous time and are looking forward to another trip to the Coromandel. Wally loves to talk, so make sure you ask him about what to do in the area and whose who. There's a lot of playful banter between Wally & Maire. So lovely to see a couple so in tune with each other. We got to use the kayak which was a lot of fun. I love chickens so I got a cuddle from one happy hen. Not to forget friendly, affectionate Fern (Labrador)! There is delicious homemade bread, homegrown honey, eggs, rhubarb and more at breakfast. Yum!Yum! Lisa & Hugh
Cons: That we couldn't stay longer :-) That we didn't have time to walk over the hill the see the sunrise... the bed was too comfortable. That we didn't have at least one dinner with Wally & Maire.

They were helpful from point of booking, made a delicious breakfast every morning and were generous with advice and the use of their kit and equipment (barbecue, water sports etc). They were brilliant with our spirited two boys (age 9 and 11). We would love to go back to Leighton Lodge, a lovely B and B in the beautiful Opito Bay.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The views from our room and the breakfast are were spectacular! The beach is just down the road from this property, an easy walk or a two second drive. It offers great swimming or fishing. The host went out of his way to make sure we were well taken care of, even in the periods of time when we were to be more self-sufficient. He offered us the use of his kayak and barbecue when we wanted to bbq our own meal. He taught us how to shuck the scallops we caught and cook them. He was great company! His wife was very friendly as well and I hear she usually makes the best meals ever, however she was recovering from some recent medical treatments so we did not see her as often on this trip.
Cons: The only thing wrong was that we didn’t stay longer!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: What a nice place and such lovely hosts! We had two nights at Leighton Lodge and we enjoyed our stay very much! Maire and Wally are very friendly hosts! We also loved our walks with Fern the super cute Labrador! We would come back anytime!

Pros: An excellent stay. Our room was big and had some basic cooking facilities, and although the bathroom was downstairs, this was not a problem, was pointed out when we booked and another room was offered to us. Maria was an excellent host, producing a very nice continental breakfast with poached eggs. The location is out of town but close to the beach. We ate at the same excellent fish restaurant IN Whitianga on both nights.
Cons: Nothing
