This motel was booked for me through my company. It was the first time I stayed here and after a 2.5 bus ride from Auckland, it was a great place to rest and put my feet up. I was greeted with a happy chappy whose aura made me feel welcome, he was very helpful in making sure that I was... More

Stayed in one bed unit which had lots of room for kids to run around. Clean, well appointed but decor maybe a bit dated. On a busy road but we weren't disturbed by traffic noise. Host was very helpful by providing extra sheets and opening up the laundry room for us when our toddler had been sick!

We only stayed 1 night here but would have been happy to stay a week. The owner was SO friendly and helpful and when we were shown our room we just could not believe the size and extent and quality of the fittings & furniture. With a King-sized bed, single bed, 3-piece suite, large TV, table & chairs, a fully... More

We stayed one night here and the rooms were spotlessly clean and the bed very comfortable. These are the two most important things so I feel a bit mean for down marking this motel for some other things. There was a small fridge and a microwave but no sink to wash cups/plates unless you used the bathroom sink. Not ideal.... More

Have stayed here on a number of occasions and always found the owner friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and comfortable, and within walking distance to town. Rooms warm when weather outside is not!

Whenever we stay in Whangarei this is our place of choice, no question whatsoever. Being right on Western Hills Drive it is accessible for whatever you want to do in Whangarei yet being set back from the road we never hear the traffic. Rooms are spacious and it's great having the TVs mounted to watch the rugby from the bed!... More

We based at Pohutukawa lodge when we visited the northlands of NZ. Very clean, very comfortable. huge rooms and huge bathrooms. Hosts were very nice, called up same day and they had availability - extended our stay an extra night and they could accommodate us and made it easy didn't have to change room. Would recommend.

Second time I have stayed here and neither time been disappointed. The place is close to everything, quiet and the owners helpful. The rooms/bathrooms are spotless and the beds are pretty comfortable too. Only thing I didnt like was that you had to pay for a wireless connection as most places it is free now and part of the service.
