1 night, 1 bedroom unit upstairs. Spotlessly clean, very well appointed, very comfortable bed, quality linen etc. Heat pump worked well (needed, cold night and a frost!), electric blanket on bed most welcome too. Heated tiled floor is shown on website and think in the compendium it indicated this was operated via management, but it never came on (only negative).... More

Thanks for taking the time to give us your review, it is great to be able to share your positive thoughts with our team, makes all their efforts worthwhile. The tiles were switched on so we will now check the thermostats and timers to see why they did not work for you. We hope you do get the chance to... More

The owners of this property go out of their way to provide excellent service. Clean facilities, good location. We found it hard to get a taxi and the owners used their own cars! We were with a wedding party, everyone was very happy with the amazing service. Thank you

A beautifully renovated room with a kitchen, spa bath and gorgeous linen. I slept so well! I made sure I got back early enough from my work dinner to use the beautiful big spa bath! The toothbrush set was a wonderful surprise and needed as I forgot my toothpaste. Definitely going to be the place I stay in Whangarei from... More

The Lodge is a family business and you can tell. There is nothing to hard to make sure you have everything you need. Some of the tips we were given were A grade. The rooms are excellent, comfortable, clean and warm. The best hotel in Whangerei in our opinion. Make it a must if you are visiting.

Accommodation in New Zealand leaves a great deal to be desired and it is better to stay with family if they are able to accommodate unless you are travelling in Whangarei. Lodge Bordeaux was our choice for a week and it was a little gem. Fresh linen if required, cleaned daily and toiletries replenished - Just like a hotel. Very... More

I have stayed at Lodge Bordeaux by arrangement through my business partner company The hospitality of the hotel owner and her friend was excellent letting me feel important and giving all necessary guidance being a first time traveler to Whangarei. The room condition, size were excellent. It was really not a hotel but a home away from home.

The Lodge Bordeaux was very clean and comfortable. The proprietors were helpful and accommodating during our stay. They made recommendations for restaurants and activities in the area. The downtown area was within walking distance and had many places to eat and shop. I would highly recommend this hotel.
