We had a wonderful two-night stay here. Our spacious room, which was spotlessly clean, had an amazing view over the harbour and a balcony to sit out on. The room kitchen was very well equipped with a proper hob and oven and a full-size fridge-freezer, but Judy and Craig have also built an outdoor kitchen/barbecue area for guests to use.... More

Excellent location with fantastic views! Judy was very welcoming and informative. I loved how picturesque Whangaroa Harbour is and how free from the crowds! The kitchen (we had unit 4) was huge and the entire unit was very comfortable. Would highly recommend.

We came across the Whangaroa Lodge Motel by mistake, but so glad we did. The room was spotless and our hosts were extremely friendly and helpful giving us advice on all the best places to visit in the area. Will definately stay there again if we visit Whangaroa.

We stayed in room 4 for three nights - the room was spacious, comfortable, very clean and well appointed - the view of the marina from the room / motel is gorgeous. Walking distance to the pub, fishing club, marina and a corner shop close by too. Will be staying again when we get the chance to visit next time,... More

A group of us stumped across this place by mistake but what a mistake it was. We stayed 3 nights but wish we had more time off as could easily have stayed a week or more. The rooms were huge and modern and one of the cleanest rooms I have ever stayed at. The lodge has a lrg outdoor kitchen... More

This is the second time I have stayed at this motel for business, and I would definitely stay there if I ever have the opportunity to visit Whangaroa on holiday. Judy and Craig are friendly and welcoming hosts, and nothing is too much trouble. On my first visit I stayed in unit 6, which is the one to go for.... More
