Great stay, friendly owners and rooms are amazing compared to other hotels in the area, I actually liked it better here then when we stayed at sky city. We had a double spa room and couldn’t fault it. Love that you could arrange a hot breakfast the night before and they had a great selection in the mini bar. We stayed with our one year old son how loved the spa bath. Room was quiet and comfortable.

We loved staying at Lodge Bordeaux for our 3 nights. The modernity and cleanliness is second to none. Stephanie and David are fabulous hosts. We visited in Autumn so didn't use the pool but the spa bath was lovely and we appreciated the top quality linen. The mini-bar was reasonably priced and we enjoyed a delicious cooked breakfast. Although it's on the main highway, we didn't notice much road noise from our unit at all. We'd definitely recommend this highly rated motel. Thanks for our lovely stay - Chrissie and Liam

Needed good accommodation at short notice. Telephoned on the Friday evening and was able to get a suite for the Saturday night. It was of a high standard. Really of a very good hotel standard. We used the swimming pool that was next to our suite. Definitely would go back there again if we had the need to be in Whangarei.

Clean, tidy and friendy accomodation. Very comfortable place to relax, whilst on a busy state highway there was minimal noise to note. Pool is great for kids & the hosts more than obliging. Rooms cleaned to a high standard each day, free clothes washing facilities a great help.
