So glad we stayed at Warkworth Lodge, breaking our journey to Auckland. It was everything we wanted and more. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Room was perfect and the lounge and kitchen just amazing. We would definitely stay again and will recommend to our friends. Thanks Warkworth Lodge.

We arrived in early hours of the morning and left early. Everything was arranged in advance and it all ran smoothly. Clean room and great facilities. The location is ideal being close to Auckland but on the doorstep of some wonedrful Northland beaches.

Was doing a bus tour for work and my boss had booked me into the Warkworth Lodge for 2 nights. I had no idea what to expect. I arrived about 10pm after informing the hosts of my late arrival. It is the old Warkworth Police Station built in 1908. It has been converted into a 12 room boutique hotel and is a splendid place to stay. Great room with attached bathroom and own fireplace. Big shared kitchen with plenty of refrigerator room. The communal lounge is absolutely stunning. My hosts were very friendly and could not have been more helpful and there was good parking for the 20 seater bus. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

For a party of eleven adults and 4 kids, the space was perfect. There weren't many others staying there at the time, so we made great use of the pool and spa, the big and well equipped kitchen and the extraordinary lounge. The lounge is just amazing! We loved the character of the room and its atmosphere. Please don't ever modernize it! We spent most of our time together in the communal spaces and really only retreated to our rooms to sleep, which was late into the night. The rooms had all you needed with comfy beds. The main building has the creaky staircase but we didn't mind that - It's all part of the character of the place. The hosts were welcoming and just lovely to deal with and especially accommodating considering our big group with small children too. Thank you Warkworth Lodge for a most pleasant stay

We booked her as a last minute thing . It was fine - the person on the desk was very pleasant, and the studio room (No 1) was very clean. However, it cost $225, and I was expecting a bit more for the money. To be fair, it was the only place available that night, so I guess that's the market, but I felt it was worth about $160 a night at most. The bed was fairly comfortable and there were enough towels, and the shower was pretty good. The kitchenette had a small microwave and a hotplate to plug in, but we didn't eat, only made tea with real milk we went and bought, since there were only UHT milk pottles in the fridge. The TV was very small, and the lighting in the unit was so dim it was impossible to read at night - and there wasn't a bulb in one of the bedside lamps; a bulb in the bathroom was also blown. We used the spa pool, which was fine, although the whole pool/spa area was fairly shabby, but clean. Overall, an okay place, but I didn't feel it offered real value for the price.

Thank you for your thoughts. We have fixed all three of the 40watt blubs in this room, it was very dim, and the team have a good stock of 100watt bulbs now. The pools overhaul date keeps getting pushed out but i am told it is locked in for Oct 2022 so we hope to see you again to experience this. Our rate is pretty standard for a local self-contained studio but we do have other ensuite rooms from 165per night. We will look at ways to improve and give a more generous offering as well. thanks again for taking the time to provide feedback, we wish you all the very best for your travels> Liz Owner

We were greeted by a very friendly host and were made very welcome with our best friend Mana (our dog). The suite was well furnished, very clean and had all the resources we needed for an overnight stay. Keep up the good work Liz.

Highly recommended, based ourselves there (with our small dog) for 2 days while we travelled to various places. Excellent location, a 2 minute walk to Warkworth shops, plenty of eateries. Immaculately clean, lovely friendly hosts. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

From the photos we didn't realise it was centrally located in Warkworth. That isn't a bad thing, as there wasn't any noise, and it was extremely convenient, but it wasn't what we expected. We mostly stayed for the pool and spa, which my partner wanted, while it gave us a convenient starting point to head to a number of local places. The room was big enough, and wasn't somewhere we planned to spend a lot of time. Having additional bathrooms came in useful, as did the large lounge as I get up much earlier than my partner so could go to the lounge with my laptop. There is a TV in the room by we didn't use it as my laptop screen is a similar size (and who goes up to that area to watch TV anyway). The kitchen was great, and as a foodie I would love to have a kitchen that size at home. It is probably underutilised by guests, but it at least gave us fridge space to put items. The host was lovely, giving us some great ideas of beaches that we may not have known of (one which my partner now loves and will be returning to whenever she can). My one criticism, and this comes from someone who travels with half a dozen devices, is the lack of power points in any room. I usually travel with a multiboard but forgot it this time, and this is when it was needed. We just couldn't find enough usable powerpoints, to the where my partner had her phone handing from a charge cable plugged in to a powerpoint 2m off the ground. So bring a multiboard if, like us, you have several things you need to plug in.

My husband and I spent one night here to have some down time and visit a couple of local attractions. The lovely woman who welcomed us couldn't have been nicer. Our room had everything we needed. The bed was super comfy and the bathroom was modern and stylish. However our favourite place was the stunning shared lounge area where we sat with a drink on huge sofas under a massively high ceiling and absorbed the historic vibe. A totally unique experience. I would love to give a 5-star review but the pool and spa really need a clean and the pool area in general was somewhat dilapidated.

Wow that is great review. So helpful to know what you love and what can be improved. We totally agree about the pool area, which happens to be our planned winter project. Our current ideas on the design includes lots more tropical plants and art. We hope you will be back and we can get those 5 stars :-) Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback.
