A lovely motel, stayed 3 days in a balcony suite, it was very big, extremely comfortable, relaxing and very clean, arrived to a warm welcome, everything was provided for, so much attention to detail, easy parking, it's about a 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive to the town centre. Would definately stay again, highly recommend.

Appreciate the reviews I'd read here which directed me to Lodge Bordeaux. Just stayed a night and arrived late but nicely appointed clean room which was hard to fault. Didn't try breakfast so can't comment there. Would have appreciated soy milk for tea but admittedly not available in many places. Very courteous and helpful woman running front office and who...

Loved our stay here, the bathroom is huge and beautifully made for shower chairs. The kitchen is great as well, it is small but it's all you really need. The King size bed is very comfortable and the pay TV is a welcomed treat. One minor issue - you will need bed props to lift the bed up higher off... More

For the past 17 days us four Australian (Tasmanian) friends have indulged ourselves in the very best New Zealand can offer in terms of luxury accommodation, food and attractions. It was memories from two previous stays at Lodge Bordeaux on previous holiday in 2009 that prompted us to revisit this stunning property en route from the Bay of Islands to... More

One of, if not the best motel we have ever stayed at. Spacious, immaculate units, equipped with everything you need. Very quiet even although it is on a main road. The management were friendly and obliging. Would recommend this complex to everyone looking to stay in Whangarei.

My husband and I were made most welcome by Lynn who showed us to our apartment which certainly had the wow factor. A beautiful double spa bath in the bathroom and a well equipped kitchen which included a teapot and cafetiere. We were both feeling really tired having had a hectic 2 day stopover in Hong Kong on our way... More

Very nice and clean hotel. Huge bath and spacious apartments. Great for couples or family and very accomodating staff. This is the second time we have stayed here, last time was around 8 years ago and still a very good standard, definitely recommended in Whangarei!

I can't fault the Lodge, it is pristine in appearance, attentive in service and just overall a great place to stay. Your attention to detail from the welcome to the breakfast was faultless. Thank you have a wonderful place that I really didn't expect.

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.
