Very well located for exploring the town, particularly the Basin, as well as being convenient to Whangarei Falls. Very clean; friendly and helpful staff. Good kitchen facilities, with French press coffee in room.

At first sight room was nice, bathroom good size but did hear traffic noise. Did request ground floor motel back in July but on checkin we were told all those rooms were pre booked at that time of booking. Mattress on bed was extremely soft and uncomfortable so did not sleep plus uncovered overhead glazing was a major problem as... More

The best thing about this place is Ivy, the staff member. She had turned the heater on in our room prior to us arriving, offered to help us carry our luggage up the stairs, and helped direct my reversing out of the parking space. The room itself was big, but unfortunately the lights were inadequate. The heater was small so... More

This Lodge is right on the main road into or out of town, close enough to the town centre to be convenient. We had an upstairs room on the road, and found it very roomy with a great kitchenette with all the facilities. Parking tight but on an inner courtyard. Outdoor area if it's fine. This was a very comfortable... More

Located close to the center but enough distance to be quiet. Large room, with all kitchenware. Rick, the owner, helped us with a problem we had with the car (miror broken),: accompanied us to a workshop for repair, phoned ... and in the end, Ricj fixed the mirror with tape.

Good location and friendly hosts. However the downsides outweigh the upsides for this Motel - our bathroom was awful and in desperate need of refurbishment - the toilet wobbled on its base when you sat on it and one corner of the shower looked dirty and mouldy. Also there is quite a lot of road noise and the units have... More

I chose to stay here for a couple of reasons; I have been disappointed with the larger chains in Whangarei in the past, and I also appreciate having a cooked breakfast delivered to my room as I'm often in a rush in the morning and/or having to work from my room before leaving for work. On my first stay I... More

I really hate it when hotels/motels take absolutely no notice of any special requests. In this case we specifically asked for a quiet room away from road noise. Not that it would have made much difference in this case as over half of the rooms sit directly on a busy road the other half a little way back. To make... More

The bed was comfy, room was warm (it was winter, so that is good), and the kitchen was very well equipped. Very clean. Location was quiet and away from the center of town, but close enough to be convenient. The owner was friendly and helpful. They have a huge DVD collection if you need something to do at night.

Very friendly, helpful hosts. Nice touch that they turned the heater on in advance but have to say the room was still a bit cold - those little blow heaters really aren't up to it. Big spacious room, loads of space. Nice and quiet (we booked a room away from the main road). Absolutely totally clean and tidy. Comfy bed... More
