I was impressed that this motel had all the facilities of a large hotel and at the end of a very long day I enjoyed their spa bath in a studio room complete with a bath bomb - bliss. Owners are very hands on and professional. Their recommending for a restaurant meant I had a very lovely Italian meal as well. Room very clean, bed very comfortable; just a very very pleasant stay. Will definitely be back for a weekend to enjoy and relax Thanks Troy anbd Tomoko

Excellent place to stay. Troy was so warm and welcoming that we felt at home immediately. He gave us great tips on where to go walking and where to eat. Customer service really does matter here and they go the extra mile, which makes all the difference to a good holiday. The room was very clean and comfortable with good view of the ocean. A good selection of eateries is within an easy walk. We will certainly stay there again. Thanks Troy, you made a great impression 😀

This is the second time we have stayed at the Whangaparaoa Lodge. It is a great motel, very comfortable, extremely well equipped, clean and modern. It's in a great location, over the road from the beach and a short walk to Manly Village where there are some great restaurants and cafes. The views from the upstairs unit towards Rangitoto are lovely. There are so many great places to visit nearby, we will definitely be back. Recommended!

Hello David and Family Thank you for the time to make this review - we enjoyed welcoming you and your parents back to Whangaparaoa for a few days and glad you enjoyed us, the beaches and the local cuisine....which just get better and better! Look forward to seeing you again when you plans allow it. Kind regards Troy

A really understated name which hides beautifully designed, high quality accomodation fronted by a superbly engaging host. All features were of the highest quality from the wet-room bathroom (with Monsoon Shower of course!) to the comfortable king sized bed, wonderful decor and all the facilities we needed. Literally 1 minute across the road to Little Manly Beach with walkways, views and a swim. Truly, my only disappointment is that we were just passing through so stayed just the one night. Our next visit to the area will definitely be based at Whangaparaoa Lodge. You might see from previous reviews that I rarely give 5 stars, even for the best... so here's a first! Thanks team!

Whangaparaoa Lodge went above and beyond in helping me surprise my parents for their 45th wedding anniversary. I can’t thank them enough. Lots of extra little surprises that surprised me also. Thank you so much! My parents loved their stay in a spa suite. Beautiful views and stunning location. We will be visiting again as a family when Covid 19 is finally over and i can visit my homeland and family again! Highly highly highly recommend Whangaparaoa Lodge!
