Stayed a night. Nice clean & tidy one bedroom unit. Good size TV. Useful having a TV in the bedroom also. Handy to all amenities. Lovely big spa bath. Pleasant manager . I would stay here again. A bit of traffic noise - not enough to interrupt my sleep though.

We had checked out another motel close by and noticed it was very noisy from the highway traffic. This motel however, was surprisingly quiet. The room was well appointed, clean and up to date. Friendly and helpful manager helped make this a pleasant stay despite being situated in a non-descript part of town.

Clean and friendly. A big plus for me was that they have real coffee (fair trade and organic!) and a plunger in the room. Well done for that!! But motel is right by the motorway and the room is quite small with no privacy at all as the only window faces the car park where everyone walks passed all the... More

Thanks for staying with us anyway, although i don't know of any Motel that has complete privacy, and most people do like the fact that they can park their car directly outside their room. Thanks. More

I travel a lot for work and my boss booked me in to stay two nights, it is well located, well furnished, free wifi, TV with Freeview. Solid basics, not over priced. Will definitely stay here again in the future.

I lived here for three weeks while working in Whangarei. It is slightly older, has all most would want in a motel, has a homely feel and has space for children.

Very clean and well appointed motels. Great value for money. We enjoyed a great night's sleep in comfortable beds, good pillows and a quiet room considering the ideal location on the main highway through Whangarei. Very easy to find. The hosts were really friendly and professional. We will certainly stay there again.

BK's Lodge is great. Conveniently located just a few minutes' walk to downtown. My room was clean and large, although perhaps slightly outdated vs. other places I've stayed. However that was ok. The front desk manager was very welcoming and accommodating. Most importantly, the price was right.
