Fodor's Expert Review Admiralty Lodge
69–71 Buffalo Beach Rd., Whitianga, Waikato, 3510, New Zealand
A mile from the town center, but only across the road from Buffalo Beach, this is a good spot if you're planning on a few days beachside. From private patios and balconies, each suite in this two-story, terra-cotta–tiled motel looks out over Mercury Bay, while inside comfortable leather couches sit opposite big TV screens. It's Qualmark five-star rated, which is the best you can get in this accommodation style.
