I travel a lot for work and my boss booked me in to stay two nights, it is well located, well furnished, free wifi, TV with Freeview. Solid basics, not over priced. Will definitely stay here again in the future.

I lived here for three weeks while working in Whangarei. It is slightly older, has all most would want in a motel, has a homely feel and has space for children. Owen and the troops are great hosts, are more than happy to help your stay even easier and Owen keeps a close but very kindly eye on everyone and... More

We stayed I the 2 bedroom apartment on a one night stay for business. The service was good and the owner was helpful with option for dinner. We decided to order in and this was charged back to the motel. The meal was great and we would use them again. Breakfast was good and on time :) We would stay... More

Great room, nice size and well equipped. Clean bathroom. Free internet, large TV, Plenty of parking and although on the main road the traffic is not an issue. CBD is walkable. Handy location. I liked the coffee plunger & microwave.

Very clean and well appointed motels. Great value for money. We enjoyed a great night's sleep in comfortable beds, good pillows and a quiet room considering the ideal location on the main highway through Whangarei. Very easy to find. The hosts were really friendly and professional. We will certainly stay there again.

BK's Lodge is great. Conveniently located just a few minutes' walk to downtown. My room was clean and large, although perhaps slightly outdated vs. other places I've stayed. However that was ok. The front desk manager was very welcoming and accommodating. Most importantly, the price was right.

Great value for money stay. Rooms are always spotless and well maintained. Comfortable night sleep every time. The hosts are so accommodating and informative. Had a few breakfasts made by Owen which are always delish. We love the Puhutukawa Power. Couldn't recommend them higher.

All too often we find that disabled people are not meant to have family. How often do you find a disabled facility room with sleeping for 3? In my experience, never. This means there's always the expense of a second room. This facility has two apartments which cater for disabled guests. They are well equipped and the shower rooms are... More

Stayed for one night on my way up north. It was reasonably priced, nice and clean. The rooms don't have aircon but fans are installed. Management was easy to deal with and they were open till 8.00pm so that was also good.
