The Lodge is a wonderful location with incredible views to the bay. When we came in our 8 bed dorm we could not believe it that we have this wonderful view from our beds. We were alone in this room and had our own bathroom and toilet. When we came back from our short trip to the bay the owner... More

Sunseekers Lodge is in a fantastic location with good views, the accommodation suits backpackers really, apartment was clean but in need of a good update..Shower damaged, furnishings shabby and tiered... Washing facilities are available but dirty and expensive... We had back packers above us, floors very noisy....we have stopped at other locations which have been much better value for money... More

I stayed in a 8 bedroom dorm and all the three nights i was sleeping there alone. When you enter the living room/kitchen, you feel like home cause the athomsphere is so familiar. Kitchen is a bit old, but that doesent matter, the view from the accomodation and the whirlpool are incredible nice. The latest owner, lindsey is a very... More

Recently visited Sunseeker Lodge in Whangaroa to escape the hustle of Auck City. It's a comfortable lodge offering various forms of accommodation from backpacker to apartment style. It's a superb starting point for many walking tours. Hosts Liz & Phillip were able to offer up their extensive knowledge of the region & pointed out 2 very excellent day trips/walks. The... More

Our trip was marred by poor hospitality, The male host was awkward, in your face and quite aggressive with his political views. He made his own staff burst into tears over his opinions and would not relent for the entire time we were there. Our group had to console and somewhat protect his staff from him and any requests such... More

I have been up to Whangaroa twice now once at the start of my trip when I stayed in backpacker dorms and once in a bigger private unit and both times were excellant. The manager and staff were friendly and because it is not a large backpackers it had a very family feel. Because it is spread out in a... More

Stayed 3 nights as we had a wedding at Kingfisher lodge and Whangaroa Golf Club. The harbour and views are amazing. Whangaroa harbor was nicer than Paihai. Cruising its waterways was more impressive than the cruise we had in the bay of islands. Don't get me wrong bay of islands is beautiful but i think Whangaroa is more intimate and... More

The Manageress was very helpful in the lead up, checking in, and at late notice allowed us to bring our family dog. We booked the holiday home (as described on website) however it was more like 2 apartments on top of each other - I was a bit dissapointed to learn there was only external access. Both apartments were clean,... More

A really perfect place to unwind and relax the views are great and its quite central for what amenities there are in Whangaroa. We had a motel unit which had more room than we needed and included a kitchen and dinning area. The gardens include a bbq area and an outdoor spa from which you can view the stars in... More
