We chose to stay here because they are dog friendly. We were not disappointed. Our room was well appointed, impeccable bathroom (small but all that we needed) and we had access to the lawn. Very comfortable bed and we loved the décor. A wee bit of road noise but not so much that it was an issue for us. The... More

Beautiful room - very happy with both the price and the easy access to parking and warkworth shops Close to Matakana and the awesome market Even thou near the passing highway, noise is not a problem. It is walking distance to restaurants and shops. The staff were very helpful and friendly

We used this as a stopover to break our trip up North and we could take our small dog. Used Lodge on way up and way back motel rooms are small but adequate, very handy to town.

We needed a quick night stop when traveling to the Bay of Islands from Taupo. Warkworth is a pleasant little town with some good places to eat and Warkworth Lodge is a decent place to spend the night. It's a short walk from the main part of town. Our unit was a little on the small side but had a... More

This was a reasonably priced lodge for 9 of us to get away for the weekend. We had the use of the lodge kitchen to self cater. Bedrooms were comfortable. Cleaning was a bit haphazard with the shared bathroom running out of soap early on in the weekend and hand towel not being changed. Owners very obliging with information about... More

This is a great place to stop over if you are heading south. We stopped here because of the fairly close proxcimity to Gulf Harbour where we were catching the ferry to Tiritiri Matangi island. The lodge is located in town and only steps from bars, restaurants and grocery.
