We are locals, but decided to stay in town the night of a work function. Lodge Bordeaux is modern, spacious and quiet.... Even though it is right on SH1. The managers are really lovely and helpful with any queries. Will definitely stay here again!

It was a great start, with a very warm welcome from the owner. He showed us to our room which was out of place in NZ and could have been in Europe - just very lovely, clean and a little bit special :) Despite being on a busy road, once you drive in it was very quiet. A pool is... More

These motel units are immaculately maintained and faultlessly cleaned, presented is as new condition. We have been coming for many years and have had the same good experience each time. The units are spacious with a small pool, and a separate outdoor area. Some units have a private terrace. Central location, although right on state highway 1, so some road... More

Stayed here for one night. Spacious room with spa bath, comfortable bed. The owners are very friendly and helpful. City center in walking distance. The overall stay was very pleasant and lovely. Only issue, the rooms are a bit noisy, you can hear the street and the airplanes. Would stay again here!

We stayed one night and would have loved to stay longer. Super spa bath and facilities. Enjoyed the outdoor table and garden setting - BQ available and a heated pool. Hosts most helpful, pleasant and friendly. Highly recommended.

Husband and I eloped and we got a room last minute. Lyn & Brett were so lovely! They put some beautiful chocolates and rose petals on the bed, even at such short notice. Breakfast the next morning was lovely as well. Definitely recommend! Lovely service and beautiful room, loved the spa bath.

I stayed here for 3 nights on a business trip. Stayed in one if the studio rooms but it was a great size room for me. From the moment I arrived to the moment I left Brett and Lyn were super helpful, even remembering a previous colleague of mine who'd stated there! Brett gave me great movie recommendations and Lyn...

My family and I stayed here for two nights, in the 2-bedroom suite (room #1). In our pre-stay correspondence with the hosts, Lyn was very prompt in responding to our request for the room and in confirming our requests for the room (e.g. king-size bed, portable cots). Upon arrival, the room was more beautiful and comfortable than the online pictures... More

We stayed for one night in their Studio Suite. Walking through the door of the unit was an unexpected surprise as we were greeted with a luxurious setting. The décor was very in keeping with the style of the Motel and very tastefully selected. The equipment supplied was all hygenic, quality and a full range right down to the full... More
