Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Booked into the Albert Number Six Motel in Whitianga fairly last minute through Hotels.com. The room price was the cheapest in Whitianga, and as such I made sure I had lowered my expectations.

Motel is very easy to find on the main shopping drag, only moments walk to the beach and directly across the road from a Takeaway shop and a 4 Square which was really handy.

The motel complex is painted a really distinctive bright sea blue which made it easy to spot.

Check In was very efficient by the nice man at Reception. Room whilst small, was really well appointed with absolutely every you need, and more. Even down to camping chairs for the beach, heaps of cutlery and crockery, plentiful linen ect. Main room had a Queen bed and the small separate room had two single beds.

The drain in the shower was blocked and as such flooded the bathroom with water. This was quickly and cheerful remedied by the lovely Chap from Reception who came after hours immediately after I rang him. Very impressed.

Only gripes are the noise from other guests. The walls seem quite thin, and even the couple talking quietly next door were clearly audible. Also the internet is a bit lousy, but that's the Coromandel in general I think.

All in all a good stay, and well recommended for the price which I felt was bang on for the offering

I booked the property mainly for its price but was really impressed by the location, cleanliness and warm reception shown by the host. It had everything you needed for a beachside stay including a comfortable bed, good shower and a stones throw from the beach. We even had a continental breakfast thrown in. Highly recommended

We stayed 3 nights and would definitely stay there again if back in Whitianga.
The motel is only 100 metres walk from the beach and the same distance to the shopping centre.
The wharf and ferry across to Cooks Beach is only 300-400 metres away
Our unit had everything we needed, was clean, comfortable and warm.
The breakfast included in the nightly tariff was simple but good value.
Daniel and Yumi are excellent hosts and happy to help with any queries or requests from their guests.

Stayed one night prior to Whitianga Marathon and will definitely return. Two room apartment extremely well appointed. Great strong shower, microwave and fridge with plenty of crockery so we could heat and eat our own food. Bed very comfortable. Fantastic Hula cafe directly across the road so you don't really need to move your car; also an easy walk to shops or beach. Will definitely return

It's a nicely located motel in Whitianga - the beds were a bit on the soft / old side but there were some nice touches inside the motel -eg. microwave.

Bathroom was clean. There aren't any bugs in Whitianga, so it's easy to air the room out. Originally there was a slight stuffy smell but once the windows are opened it goes away. There's a fan but no AC. You don't really need AC though.

Parking ample, either on premise or street.

If you like/need internet - the internet is quite slow (struggled to watch youtube videos). I think it's the region though.

The location is a quick walk down to quite a few food options. It's located really close to the wharf.

Staff were really nice.

Thank you for the review and comments. You like the rest of Whitianga are holding out for internet fibre to be installed later this year so we can watch you tube videos without the dreaded buffering. We do though look forward to having you return and stay with us again sometime soon. In the meantime all the best Bruce and Jane.

This was our first "staycation" in NZ now that overseas travel is not on the cards for a bit !! We came to Whitianga for a weekend and booked some things to do in advance. This hotel was a lovely surprise. Very clean, had everything you needed (i.e. fridge, breakfast things) and was a simple stroll into town. The owner was super friendly and full of suggestions - places to eat, things to do, nothing was too much trouble. Felt a bit sorry for them as they took over just as NZ went into lockdown so they have had a quiet start to their new life but word of mouth will get around and they will have no problem picking up business ! Great for a family too.

We stayed for 2 nights this month and although the units were quite small they had everything we needed. The owners Bruce and Jane (plus Mr Darcy the Westie) were excellent and provided us with lots of useful information and were great company. If in the area, this is a neat little place painted turquoise and white, close to the sea front. Go try it!

We have been hesitant to write a review about our experience with Albert Number 6; however, given the ongoing rain conditions we feel it is reasonable to speak up. We were expecting to head to the Coromandel beginning January 29th until the rains began. We had two bookings in the area and the first not only refunded our reservation but encouraged us to not go near the Coromandel because of the conditions.

Alternatively, Albert Number 6 stood by their no cancellation policy delaying an ultimate decision with the hope that conditions would allow for access. It is now Friday, February 3rd, conditions have not improved, and Albert Number 6 would not refund the no cancellation penalty.

We are visiting from Canada and, with the rainfall, have had to reorganize our entire trip. We feel that the ownership of Albert Number 6 were unreasonable and unprofessional in their decision and caution others when considering a booking.

We did not actually see the hotel or unit and cannot speak to any other aspect of the business.

We stayed for one night at this lovely spotlessly clean hotel. The owner was friendly and welcoming nothing was too much trouble. The free breakfast was simple and well done. I would recommend the cafe across the road for coffee and muffins too.
This place was great value for money and short walk to shops and restaurants. We are at that curry place and highly recommend it
We would definitely stay again when back in whitianga
