Hi thank you for taking time to write a review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.

Turtlecove chalets were comfortable and they provided a continental breakfast, otherwise it is self catered with a communal kitchen and communal showers upstairs in the main building. The town itself does close for business pretty early but I managed to find a fush n' chup shop about 5 minutes walk down the main street. I only stayed from afternoon until...

Stayed in the cathedral cabin. The cabins are a great size with comfy double bed. Lots of room for luggage and to relax. We were close to the outside bathroom which were nice. Inside the main house is a large kitchen and lounge with great outside area to hang around and eat. Great value to stay in busy beach town....

Lovely staff who gave us lots of useful info, nice cosy, warm room which was clean and well maintained. Free breakfast was very much appreciated. Lovely outside area which we would have used more if we had stayed longer. Quite a central location - Whitianga isn't that big though!

Turtlecove is a fantastic hostel. Friendly and warm. Free breakfast, free good wifi and very well presented. An added bonus was good mattresses on the bunk beds which isnt often found in a backpackers. Also lovely staff who are welcoming and helpful. I really enjoyed my stay here and would highly recommend it for all types of travellers.

We had a cabin at Turtle Cove for 2 nights. Friendly helpful owner, good wifi, clean accommodation with breakfast included - this was the best value site of our month in NZ. Good sized kitchen and well kept, as was bathroom. Easy walking distance of beach and cliff walks, shops and cafes etc. Recommended.

Room was acceptable, clean and neat and tidy. Staff has a streak for sarcasm though, not recommended for people who can not take sarcasm. Location is ok, nearby the supermarkets. There was enough parking when we were there, not sure if could accommodate more. Kitchen was furnished rather well, and basic breakfast was offered free.
