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. Would highly recommend... More

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!
