Such wonderful hosts - truly went above & beyond to help in any way they could. The room is clean although a little tired decor wise. I used the conference room for 2 days and that was spacious and well equipped with large TV screen and all the necessary - flip charts, whiteboards etc
The only reason I did not give 5/5 is that the room is hot and there is no aircon - just a fan. Other than that - highly recommend
Love all the local 'word' signs up around the place - added nice Kiwi feel.

Room Tip: Keep the door and windows open to allow airflow and keep temperature comfortable through hot evening...

We had a lovely 4 night stay at the Cheviot Lodge which we used as a base to explore Whangarei and the surrounding areas. The location is great, the hosts and staff very friendly and we really liked our outside space to enjoy the sunshine when we weren't out and about. Our room was lovely, really clean with a comfy bed and great TV channels. We will definintely be coming back next time we are in the area.

Thank you for your review. I am really pleased that your husband and you enjoyed your stay at Cheviot Park Motor Lodge. Yes, most of our guests take advantage of their outside table and chairs. Every room has its own little area outdoor. Our motel is conveniently located on State Highway 1, only 1km from Whangarei city centre, 650m from Whangarei Hospital and close to most sporting venues. Even close enough for a daytrip to the Bay of Islands. I will pass on your compliments to our management and cleaning staff. Thank You.

We stayed at Cheviot Park for 6 nights as a Sports Team. We used the Conference Facilities for all our meals and meetings. The owners were simply awesome with their hospitality. We used the pool and spa for doing recovery. The rooms were clean and nice. The house was fantastic. I would definitely recommend this property to others

Thank you for your review. It was a pleasure to accommodate your sports group. Our conference facilities are well used for all kind of events and functions. The meeting room with attached kitchen and bathroom facilities are very versatile. Especially with the 2 three-bedroom houses next door, that can sleep 8 people in each house. Just talk to our friendly management and I am sure we can arrange your next function as well.
Thank you.

Stayed at this motel for business. To be very honest it tries very hard to come across as modern, but doesn't really deliver. The particular room I stayed in had a new hand basin, but apart from that, little else to back up the modernisation attempt. Shower didn't get much light, but excellent water pressure. Kitchen old but clean and tidy. I don't normally like/want soft beds, but this surprised me, and I had a great nights sleep. location of motel is probably best asset.

We stayed here for 2 nights. Owners welcoming and helpful. Beds comfy. Internet access was slow. Bit dated but tidy. Heaps of Sky tv programs to watch. Only problem I had was finding a dirty hoody and full drink bottle under the bed! Spoke to the owner and he was going to get onto it straight away. I would stay here again and I would recommend the place to others.

Room Tip: a room back further from the road, could be a little noisey

Stayed in a studio room 22 April 2012, room very clean and tidy with plenty of complimentary tea & coffee which was nice, fridge was not on and did not realise till later after ice cream had melted but host quickly fixed so not a problem. Would stay here again. On one of the main road north. Would stick away from units by the road if possible as you can hear the road traffic in the morning .

Room Tip: Try and steer clear of road side rooms due to traffic noise in the morning. Pick up snacks and meals...
