We only stayed here for one night - however we would recommend this hotel to everyone. The room was very spacious and immaculate. We had a delicious breakfast served in our room. Troy was most helpful with recommendations for both dinner and also our itinerary. Thanks !

Absolutely loved this place it was so clean and had such friendly staff. Highly recommend :) We loved the kind gesture of a cup of tea on our arrival, this place is close to nearby restaurants and the beach.

I would really like to give the lodge a higher rating. However the sleep quality was a problem. The owners of the motel are friendly and helpful. Check-in was quick and easy. We had a lovely corner room. It had a glass sliding door leading to a patio with tables and chairs that overlooked the street. We also had outdoor... More

I had the pleasure of staying at this Lodge for work for several weeks. Firstly the location is stunning with views over the sea to Rangitoto Island and access (over the road) directly onto Little Manly Beach. Troy is a professional host and is keen to do anything to improve your experience of staying with him and his wife. Definitely... More

I arrived a bit frazzled from the slung abuse that a woman spat with ends of her bad day to be greeted by the most wonderfully welcoming man. My children and I are so grateful for the stay and hospitality we received at Whangaporoa Lodge. After showering and settling in, my children were hounding me for a juice and to... More

Hi Saphire. Nice to see you enjoyed your stay with us with your 2 lovely boys! We really enjoyed getting to know you from the start with your unfortunate experience with the Auckland traffic, and happy to see you settled in to the room to relax and regenerate. Look forward to seeing you all again when you can get away!... More

We needed a break from driving from Taupo to Bay of Islands, wanting to stop north of Auckland. This was a delightful solution. Big room, clean, quiet, with a well equipped kitchen and bbq, outside decks, and across from a beach. And best of all it came with Troy, the most helpful, gracious host we've encountered in a month of... More
