Arrived late Saturday afternoon and was able to book into a studio . Our host took us up to our room only to found the beds not made. This was quickly rectified and sincere apologies was given. We took a walk to the local shops while this was done and it showed us the beautiful location for our nights accommodation.... More

Lovely motel with an equally lovely outlook over Little Manly beach, deserving of it's 5 star rating. Troy, the host, was so friendly and helpful, even bringing us a cup of herbal tea on our arrival. We had been upgraded to a premium unit with a sea view and the unit was immaculate. We would be very happy to stay... More

Good size comfortable room, great mattress and very helpful management. The kitchen was great and the shower had great water pressure. Just across the road is Little manly Beach and you get a nice view of the sunrise from the motel. Good parking and handy location.

We stayed here in January, mainly to be close to Gulf Harbour ferry for a visit to Tiritiri Matangi Island and herewith save the time for the drive coming from Auckland in the morning. Whangaparaoa Lodge is more a motel-like accommodation, so the name ‘lodge’ is more euphemizing than representing the real situation. We had booked the ‘premium deluxe suite’.... More

Thank you to Troy and his wife for such a comfortable stay at your lodge! They were so helpful even when my husband had trouble sleeping as the fridge in our room was slightly noisy they were more than happy to change it for a quieter one. They were helpful with travel knowledge and if Troy was unsure he would... More

Our last stay before heading home to Australia after 3 weeks touring the North Island was made very comfortable at this motel. We had researched it on Trip Advisor and stayed there on the basis of the positive reviews. We were not disappointed ... The owner Troy was one of the most helpful and welcoming of hosts we have encountered... More
