I cannot recommend this accomodation too highly - to call it a motel does it a disservice.We were checked-in by Lyn, the owner, and were asked if we wanted something bigger.As it was our original suite was huge and very luxurious with everything we needed for our stay.We would quite happily have stayed longer if our next accomodation had not...

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.

Found this motel as we were driving past although it was recommended in an old travel book. It was fabulous wih we could have stayed longer. Spa bath, air con and a heated pool. We just sat and relaxed. Lynne was ever so helpful. When we return this motel is ear marked!

we found this place via trip adviser and were impressed by the reviews others had left. Superbly clean rooms with excellent facilities. Aircon was very welcome! Great value cooked breakfast as an extra. Lynne is a lovely host and very kindly helped us sort out our toll fees. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

I stayed here for work for two nights in Feburary and thought the place was wonderful! Really clean and cute but modern too. Great sized room with a spa in the bathroom and also has a small kitchen with a cook top, fridge and microwave. The bed is comfortable and the caretakers were really lovely and friendly.
