Pembrooke Motor Lodge is no longer operating, which is a great shame because it was a comfortable, handy to everything place to stay. Owners were very friendly and helpful to me on the numerous occasions I stayed there over the years. I will miss them.

I stayed at the Pembrooke Motor Lodge for 3 nights last month (July 2013) and could not have been happier, The room was warm, clean and tidy and of an ample size, equipped with a great little kitchenette so I had no need to eat out every night. With only being a short walk to both Home Basin and Town,... More

I found my overall experience of Whangarei great. I stayed here to be close to town and the town basin where I wanted to visit because my friends had said there is alot to do there. We had a spa bath unit which was great to relax in after a day on the road exploring. Definately a town to stay... More

Stayed over night and what really impressed me was the room size. Although I didn't need it as I was by myself it was really comfortable and had a kitchenette which a lot of places I've stayed didn't so it was kind of like a home away from home as I prefer to cook than eat out

My main thing with Pembrooke was that it was close to town. Only about 1km walk to get there and is a nice easy walk. This helped me as I didn't have a car as my husband had it with him working so I could still get out and about to shop and there's also a new world round the... More

We booked for one night and ended up staying two because we found more things we wanted to do locally. We had a one bedroom unit which was spacious and had a spa bath which was great. We went for a nice walk through the Kauri trees just up the road aswell and ate dinner at Tonic restaurant which is... More

We used Pembrooke as a hub for northland and travelled back each day after going north to bay of islands and also west to dargaville. Rooms were really clean and tidy and John was really helpful with planning our trip around. Alround great place and northland is a beautiful place to visit

We arrived in Whangarei, without a reservation anywhere. The traffic downtown was horrible and Permbrooke was the first motel we found outbound. John was helpful with restaurant recommendations. The rood was average BUT I really appreicated the fine rading lamps -- a rarity these days. We followed John's dinner recommendation and had a find Indian meal.

Having little choice with all other motels booked in Whangarei we drew the short straw and stayed here. That should have spoken volumes. The operator is a strange chap who tried intensely to tell me how to get onto the wifi without listening to my concerns as to its capability (Being an IT person) and I was proved right when... More

We stayed 2 nights at this motel. We found the owner friendly and especially helpful when we needed to use the laundry. We suggest if staying here you request a room at the back of the motel, as the road noise can be loud at times. The room was large and comfortable, the water in the shower was hot with... More
