I stayed here for a night for business reason. The room was a standard shower studio. Price was $195 a night. The room was of a reasonable size and was clean. For some reason, I was placed in a room which is purposely fitted out for a disabled customer. However, that did not bother me much, but would have been... More

We are glad that Gary, overall, had a good experience when he stayed at Lodge Bordeaux recently. The room Gary booked online was indeed a Wheelchair Accessible room, and the description online states that it is a wheelchair accessible unit. The only difference to any of our other rooms is that the bathroom has been designed with a wet-floor shower,... More

Last minute booking online (night before) went smoothly, and our check in was fast. The room was outstanding, very spacious, very open, very clean and very modern. Very, very comfortable. The bath was awesome! Facilities in our room were great, we had no trouble making a full breakfast in the morning and it was so easy to scoop all the... More

This "lodge" is rated 5 star. Be aware that while this is probably one of the best accommodations available in the small town of Whangarei, it is located on a busy road that runs thru town, and away from the retail and tourist areas such as the harbour. It is really a motel where cars drive up to the front... More

To clear up a few points... 1. Lodge Bordeaux is a motel - not a hotel or a luxury lodge. Our Qualmark 5 Star rating is listed in the Self Contained and Serviced category, and all our guide book advertising lists us in the motel and motor lodge sections. With regard to location - yes, we are on a main... More

What a gem! The staff at this hotel were so interested in our travels and did everything to make sure we were well-cared for. Whether suggesting delicious restaurants (like the Mozart cafe!) or helping us track down lost items, they were fantastic. The real star here, though, is the accomodation! A spacious bedroom with one of the most comfy beds... More

Stayed in a one bedroom unit (with spa bath) with management providing a couple of rollaway beds in the living area for our two children. We've stayed there before and, as always, the unit is immaculate and very well presented. I've found it hard to find good accommodation in Whangarei that's close to town and sure, I do admit to...

My husband and I booked here for business (we stay in 20-25 motels and holiday homes per year all over NZ for our work) with our student son in tow, with one of our main criteria being met per the "For your comfort" section, namely Fast Internet Connection. We arrived, checked in, unloaded our luggage & asked for the password.... More

Extremely clean 2 bedroom unit next to the pool, very comfortable with lovely furnishings. Lots of room, friendly proprietors, will stay again when in Whangarei. Quiet.

Have stayed in a lot of places in NZ but this has to be the one of the best. The rooms were spotless and beautifully set up and luxourious. The mini bar was well stocked and there were snacks available at a cost. The bathroom had a double spa bath and even had a special candle holder with a tea... More
