I felt at home straight away, lovely for a getaway by yourself, safe, cozy, and the bath is wonderful. Really kind, friendly owners. The herbal tea on arrival is a nice touch, the motel is immaculately clean. Can't wait to visit again.

The owner was super friendly and helpful. We really felt like home and were able to relax. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, and right across the road from the beach. Would highly recommend this place to anyone.

We stayed 3 nights in a deluxe studio and were impressed. The room was spacious, spotlessly clean and well equipped. We also ordered breakfast which was excellent and brought to the room. Troy was extremely helpful and friendly. We would definitely recommend Whangaparaoa Lodge.

Friendly owners and clean and tidy room but it was very noisy and bright due to cars coming and going outside the bedroom all night. Bed was also very uncomfortable due to a huge hump in the middle where two beds were joined to make one.

Thank you for your review and sorry to hear you had an unfortunate experience with us. Ordinarily the Lodge car park is quiet in the evenings and not an issue with our guests. Our apologies if this was not the case during your stay. Our beds are new and comfortable and designed so you should be unable to feel a...

First class service, attention to detail, impeccably clean, highly recommended. As a small group we stayed only one night in preparation for our visit the following day to Tiritiri Matanagi island. Our host took care of our confirmation booking and made our stay so enjoyable. Nothing was a problem and we were welcomed with a refreshing cup of ginger tea!...

We arrived after a long journey to be met by a warm and welcoming smile from Troy, who showed us to a large and beautifully appointed room with the most stunning views of the sea and the sunset.

A perfect spot for enjoying all that the area offers. Hosts are lovely, helpful and very welcoming. We had a fabulous few days stay, and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Units spotlessly clean & comfy.
