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

We stumbled across the Whangaroa Lodge Motel by accident and couldn't have been luckier. Gracious and welcoming hosts, a superb view over Whangaroa harbor and a room (#6) that was so pristine it was as if we were its first occupants. The people - Judy and Craig were outstanding hosts. Judy went out of her way to make us feel... More

We stayed only one night as we had to pick up someone from Kaeo early the next morning but we would have loved to spend longer in Whangaroa and this accommodation is first rate. New owners Judy and Craig are warm and welcoming hosts even providing freshly baked afternoon tea when we arrived! Our unit was spotless with super comfy... More

We stayed here a couple of weeks ago and it was very very pleasant. Very friendly and helpful hosts - even went for a Kayak with Judy! Lovely crisp fresh linen, tastefully decorated rooms, everything spotless, outstanding views, easy walk to marina, boat club for a yummy 'pub' meal. This is a great spot for a well worthwhile visit to... More

Congratulations to the New Hosts with your warm smiles and compassion as we arrived to attend a funeral, the loss of my friend Narelles Mum Narelle. We thank you and wish all your future guests reflect this kindness back to you ten fold. Review time : I found the bed to have crisp white sheets, clean fluffy pillows fluffy duvet/blankets... More

Given the lateness (c.7pm) of our call to Whangaroa Lodge Motel, & the immediacy of our need for accommodation for 7, Whangaroa Lodge Motel was able to provide us with 2 very clean, homely, well-resourced rooms. To accommodate our numbers, Derek perservered with a faulty pump to sort out an airbed for us.There's everything a cook wants in a kitchen,... More

Couldn't agree more with all the reviews, many thanks to the hosts for a wonderful couple of days in Whangaroa Harbour. Unexpected quality motel for a very good price. Beautiful linen, comfy beds, lovely views, well equipped kitchenette, very clean and great service. My 14 year old son and I enjoyed the long weekend and were able to take our... More

We stayed just one night between Christmas and New Year but would love to have stayed longer. This lodge is kiwi motel-style and not expensive. Our unit was spacious, clean and comfortable. The view is beautiful and you just need to walk down through the garden to the harbour, pub or Fishing Club where you can get a delicious simple... More

Driving the scenic highway on the way south to Kerikeri in the early evening we came across the lovely little harbor of Whangaroa. Locals recommended the Whangaroa Motel and luckily we took the last room. Beautiful location up a steep road (45% incline) with a fantastic view of the harbour. The unit was spotless, elegantly furnished with a queen and... More
