Stayed here a couple of times and furnishings are very luxurious and comfortable. Only donw side is the busy road and entry/exit at peak times. Other than that I would definately rate and stay again.

Very nice place to stay. I enjoyed the comfortable bed, friendly greeting and the little extras that made it a very pleasurable stay. Spotlessly clean and attention to details made it enjoyable. I am a rep on the road and will definitely stay here on my next trip.

Our bed was so comfy we slept off jet lag in 11 hours of serenity! It is a 3 hour drive if you have landed in Auckland Airport. Friendly and cooperative staff are attentive. Just minutes from the harbor, plenty of restaurants and shopping nearby, and quick access to highway. Clean, spacious room also wth luxurious tub and bathroom.

We stayed just one night at the Lodge Bordeaux and were thrilled to fine such a gem in Whangarei. From the start, the lovely lady at the desk couldn't be more helpful and friendly. I was thrilled she gave us an actual bottle of milk (not those horrible sachets). Then I was thrilled when we saw the room - immaculately... More

The best motel I have been to. Everything was clean and in pristine condition. The staff were friendly and helpful and it was extremely well priced for what you got. The added touch of a mini bar which you usually only find in hotel rooms was a pleasant option.

I've stayed in a number of hotels / motels in Whangarei and the Lodge Bordeaux is a cut above the rest. Beautifully presented rooms, very comfortable beds and service with a smile. The location is easy to find and the rates are reasonable, I thoroughly recommend to all.

Situated on the state highway going north, so not easy to walk into town, but we had a car so no worries! Nice large room with private balcony. Spotlessly clean, nice kitchenette which allowed us to cook a fry up for breakfast. Overall a great place to stay.
