I've stayed in a number of hotels / motels in Whangarei and the Lodge Bordeaux is a cut above the rest. Beautifully presented rooms, very comfortable beds and service with a smile. The location is easy to find and the rates are reasonable, I thoroughly recommend to all.

Situated on the state highway going north, so not easy to walk into town, but we had a car so no worries! Nice large room with private balcony. Spotlessly clean, nice kitchenette which allowed us to cook a fry up for breakfast. Overall a great place to stay.

We stayed one night after flying from LAX and driving up to this beautiful small city from Auckland. The hotel owners were most accommodating, the room, with separate bedroom, was very large, and breakfast brought to the room was outstanding.

clean rooms, comfortable beds, friendly staff, nice pool area, great for business stays - breakfast available - and a park just up the road for little ones if needed. Not in central town, but a very short drive to hood Thai etc.

This was a very nice motel with every possible facility including a dishwasher. It was very clean and tidy with traditional furnishings. All the facilities were excellent. It was about 20 min walk into city but it was an easy walk. Free parking and wifi.

First stop on our NZ holiday and it certainly set the bar high! Everything you could want for a relaxing break. Spacious, comfortable, clean and well located. An error by the booking agency was swiftly dealt with by the manager. Definitely recommend the Lodge Bordeaux to travellers, and we look forward to returning if we're ever in the area again!
