Tauranga Lodge


Check In: 14:00|Check Out: 10:00

Tauranga's newest and only waterfront accommodation, awarded 5 start silver Qualmark sustainable business award, dedicated to celebrating the desire for discovery, adventure and exploring the world. More than just a place to stay, our newly renovated historic building, is the preferred stop for travellers and young adventurers wanting high quality, affordable rooms, a great vibe and our million-dollar harbour views.

Did we mention our harbour views? People at neighbouring bars are often envious of our guests hanging out on our balcony as it always looks like a good time (and it is!) and you can enjoy it without having to buy a cocktail or meal. In fact, it's all BYO here.

It's a great place for the solo traveler, school groups, girls and boys weekend away or anyone traveling for large events.

Tauranga City
Located in the heart of the CBD is a real bonus for our guests as you are literally a short walk from any number of cafes, bars, restaurants and clubs as well as shops, the very groovy 'Our Place' of market stalls, our local iSite for travel information and more.

Mount Maunganui
We are just over the bridge from the beautiful white sandy beach of Mt Maunganui, voted the best beach in New Zealand! In the summer, Tauranga Water Transport runs a ferry service from the pier in front of Wanderlust across to Salisbury Wharf, Mount Maunganui. You can also hire a bike and follow the shared walk/cycle way along the waterfront and across the bridge. Check out our sister website for great things to do over at the Mount!

Come and make our destination part of your journey too.
