We found this lovely Lodge Motel via Trip Advisor. The views over Whangaroa harbour are really beautiful especially if you happen to see a lovely sunset. The Fishing club pub with excellent sea food is nearby and another pub. The proprietors are very helpful and knowledgeable. We can only recommend it.

The place was awesomely clean, and the view from the upstairs rooms was delightful. The owners were really helpful and we really enjoyed watching the DVD about the history of the location. Highly recommended.

The view of Whangaroa harbour, and way... More

The offer of a continental breakfast is great, no shopping. A great BBQ area with Sky TV and gas heating. What a way to have a... More

We stayed at the Whangaroa Lodge for a night, and were both blown away by the motel. The unit was impeccably clean, and consisted of a sitting room, kitchen, main bedroom and second bedroom, and was equipped with everything you need. Judy and Craig, our hosts, were very, very welcoming and went out of their way to ensure that we... More

We had a wonderful two-night stay here. Our spacious room, which was spotlessly clean, had an amazing view over the harbour and a balcony to sit out on. The room kitchen was very well equipped with a proper hob and oven and a full-size fridge-freezer, but Judy and Craig have also built an outdoor kitchen/barbecue area for guests to use.... More
