I stayed here while travelling to Whangarei for business. The rooms are very nicely decorated with a very relaxing spa bath inside. Room service breakfast was a great way to start the day, and the front desk staff were efficient and helpful recommended restaurants. If I were to visit again I would stay there again.

We choose this hotel after checking Trip Advisor as we drove into Whangarei and we were not disappointed. The welcome we received from the owner was lovely. She went out of her way to make suggestions for where we could go for dinner. The room was very spacious and very well presented. The bathroom was large and had lots of... More

This motel is not only gorgeous looking it is beautifully well appointed and spotlessly clean. Fabulous spa bath and a mini bar with full size bottles of wine at very reasonable prices. Staff were fantastic and the breakfast absolutely beautiful.

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

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

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.
