When passing through Whangarei, Pembrooke Motor Lodge has become our go to for accommodation. Affordable, friendly and as a young family the spa bath units are our top pick. Clean and comfortable, we do not hesitate to recommend them as a great place to stay.

The staff were very accomodating and couldn't have been more helpful. We were in a ground floor unit and it was clean and comfortable. We walked into town and walked to the supermarket so it was a great location.

Our flight to Auckland got in late, and halfway to Whangarei we realized we'd left one of our bags on the shuttle bus for the car rental outfit. Back we went, and the sun was rapidly setting. So we arrived at the Pembroke Motor Lodge much later than planned. Add in the fact that we were driving some crazy roads...

Very well located for exploring the town, particularly the Basin, as well as being convenient to Whangarei Falls. Very clean; friendly and helpful staff. Good kitchen facilities, with French press coffee in room.

At first sight room was nice, bathroom good size but did hear traffic noise. Did request ground floor motel back in July but on checkin we were told all those rooms were pre booked at that time of booking. Mattress on bed was extremely soft and uncomfortable so did not sleep plus uncovered overhead glazing was a major problem as...

The best thing about this place is Ivy, the staff member. She had turned the heater on in our room prior to us arriving, offered to help us carry our luggage up the stairs, and helped direct my reversing out of the parking space. The room itself was big, but unfortunately the lights were inadequate. The heater was small so...

This Lodge is right on the main road into or out of town, close enough to the town centre to be convenient. We had an upstairs room on the road, and found it very roomy with a great kitchenette with all the facilities. Parking tight but on an inner courtyard. Outdoor area if it's fine. This was a very comfortable...

Located close to the center but enough distance to be quiet. Large room, with all kitchenware. Rick, the owner, helped us with a problem we had with the car (miror broken),: accompanied us to a workshop for repair, phoned ... and in the end, Ricj fixed the mirror with tape. When we woke up we found this gift. Thanks, Rick!...

Good location and friendly hosts. However the downsides outweigh the upsides for this Motel - our bathroom was awful and in desperate need of refurbishment - the toilet wobbled on its base when you sat on it and one corner of the shower looked dirty and mouldy. Also there is quite a lot of road noise and the units have...

I chose to stay here for a couple of reasons; I have been disappointed with the larger chains in Whangarei in the past, and I also appreciate having a cooked breakfast delivered to my room as I'm often in a rush in the morning and/or having to work from my room before leaving for work. On my first stay I...
