The lodge is amazing. Troy and Staff are very friendly and welcoming. Stayed here twice and second time was even better with spa bath... Rooms are very comfortable and clean... Beach right across the road and walk along the shoreline is bliss when tide is out...

It's the small things that make a difference, the welcome note and cup of tea, immaculately clean rooms, rain fall shower heads and proper SKY TV. My only problem was the clock on the wall ticking when I was trying to get to sleep (easily fixed by taking the battery out), wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone

We were visiting friends in the area for a couple of nights and found the Whagaparaoa Lodge on Trip Adviser. It is as good as everyone says! Really no complaints at all, and Troy could not have been more welcoming and accommodating.

From the initial phone call to Troy (with half an hour's notice) through to check out Troy was a pleasure to deal with, and his attention to detail and friendly hospitality was... More
