My husband and I along with four other friends stayed here for four nights. We really appreciated the welcome we received and the friendliness - nothing was to hard for Troy. Thanks for a great stay. There are shops and restaurants nearby and Gulf Harbour is only ten minutes away by car.

Troy is an outstanding host and his motel room facilities are first class. Although we only spent one night we were totally impressed. Troy was most gracious and helpful with dinner recommendations and his cooked breakfast was just what we needed for a long day of travel. Highly recommended and we would definitely stay again!

Extremely clean, great service and convenient location. Upon arrival Troy showed us to our room and brought us a cup of tea and a small carafe of milk. There is a lovely beach across the road and numerous restaurants close by. Highly recommend......

We travel a great deal and service is what separates great from ordinary. Troy and his team are so friendly and accommodating. The location is fantastic, right across the road from Little Manly beach. Simple things like unlimited free wifi make all the difference. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again and recommend Whangaparoa Lodge to all our friends and family.

This motel is on a busy road with a small bay on the other side of the road for swimming. Within easy walking distance of local shops. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was brought to our room in the morning. The room was clean and the bed comfy.

I had the pleasure of staying at Whangaparaoa Lodge for 2 nights when I was not able to get accommodation in Auckland for a business trip. The Lodge was opposite a beautiful ocean view and it was so nice and refreshing to be out of the city. The 45min ferry ride to Auckland was a relaxing trip and a lovely... More
