Fantastic little spot close to the water, awesome hospitality and very helpful. Owners looked after us well and even let us borrow the sea Kayaks free of charge 😄. Would love to head back to the whangaparoa lodge, thanks for the great service

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Troy and Tomoko were very welcoming and catered to a couple of odd requests (place to wash my car, printed off a speech) in a warm friendly way. Hotel was in very good condition in a great location. Highly recommended.

We stayed for 4 nights during the new year break. Booking was smooth and efficient. The hotel is located on the Whangaparaoa main road which makes it a little busier than we would like. We can hear cars passing by at night as our room is in the front of the hotel, but overall not too bad. It is peaceful... More

We only had the one night here, but had a wonderful stay. Troy is a lovely host, and did his best to bring us up to speed with how to get around (we were attending a wedding in Puhoi) and helped us arrange a shuttle service. Of course, it was quintessentially Kiwi in terms of the help he provided, but... More

From my very first email of enquiry to waving us goodbye in the pouring rain, Troy and Tomoko and Whangaparaoa Lodge exceeded all our expectations. What a lovely couple and what an excellent motel! We took the Tiri Tiri Matangi package and Troy arranged everything for us, including the guided tour and it all went without a hitch. I'm sure... More

We stayed there for two nights and it was really nice. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. We were in room 2 with a bath. Breakfast is copious served at room, you can eat just outside with sea view. Very kind and helpful host. We would certainly come back!

Stayed in ground floor family room. Manager was very friendly and helpful, even farewelling each member of our family as we left. Room had everything you need plus super comfy beds. Will definitely be returning next year. Can highly recommend. Free wi-fi in room would be only improvement.
