We stayed for a long, 4 day weekend in a second floor room. The Lodge has come along way from its motel origins, and progressing well with Troy's redefining casual luxury vision.
The double room was really large, clean, modern, and comfortable rooms, with a view of the harbour and Rangitoto. The bathroom again modern to a high standard could be described as overly spacious! The kitchen was really well equipped., the old squeezy sponge was the only point that would loose points!
With one small intimate beach across the road, many more beaches wherever you look, the village and its shops and fab Thai restaurant round the corner and a regional park at the end of the peninsula all make for a great break.
Troy is an attentive host, an eye for detail and nothing too much bother.
I would thoroughly recommend Whangaparoa Lodge and would stay again.
