This use to be our family get away but now I will never re visit this motel. From arrival to departure myself and our kids felt unsafe. The motel has new people running it and they have turned it into a place you want to hide from someone or something. They didn't advise us on booking that renovations were under... More

Been here a couple of years ago and was ok then. Stayed one night only thankfully. Whole unit smelled musty and old and felt creepy. Bed was uncomfortable, linen looked clean. Private hot pool got too hot (over 42 degrees). Had to manually turn hot water off at valve or we would have been cooked ! Did not have a... More

I chose this motel because of the fact that it had a private pool with each room, and paid $130 a night for this privilege. This was the most I paid at any motel on my two weeks in N.Z., and if it hadn't been for the convenience of the pool it would have been money down the drain. The... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Furniture is shabby,and dusty, stained on the mattress protectors, Spa is too hot too use and over 30 years old, and the water had a sulphur smell and didn't look clean. Only mirror in bathroom with no plug for hairdryer. It is 1960s old motel unit which hasn't kept up with the times.

I have stayed twice at this motel but both times have been very unhappy with the cleanliness of the spa. Both times there has been dirt at the bottom of the spa, and they could do with emptying and a good scrubbing. Both times we have been unable to cool the spa down - they were far too hot to... More

We have booked this Motel as a first accomodation after the long haul flights to New Zealand. The reason to select the area and Motel was due to distance to Auckland Airport and the private pools. The Motel itself is not the newest one, but clean. The staff at the reception was very friendly and helpful, i.e. "If the water... More

I came across this motel in the AA Guide. I have to say I was very impressed. Yes, the place is not brand spanking new; but the facilities are excellent. Great value for money. The private spas are a great amenity. So nice to a spa literally right outside your door. As others have mentioned proximity to Auckland is excellent.... More

We use this facility on a regular basis as our getaway place but still close to home in Auckland. Staff are very friendly and easy going. Everything you basically need are in the rooms, we always stay in room 7 with our children which has its own private spa fenced off so nobody can see so you have plenty of... More

Highly recommend for family gatherings, affordable for group stays, kids absolutely love the place. Daisy and Evelyn are very friendly and kind, always so happy to see us.
