Unit adequate but housekeeping below an acceptable standard. Several essential items missing from unit & we had to wash crockery & cutlery before we could use them. Unit not serviced after first nights stay.When it was finally done bath towel had a hole in it big enough to put your head through.After our several complaints management offered to fully refund...

The worst I have stayed in for years. Looks good from the outside. Great view over the golf course. Inside (should have taken my tent). If there was other accommodation available that weekend elsewhere in Auckland I would have walked out. Needs refurbishing. Holes in the wall. Nettings torn. Curtains hanging off hooks. Cables for the TV wrapped around wall... More

Motel has free parking Check in/out was quick and easy. Room is very basic but very clean with a patio and view of the golf course. Rooms are provided with basic necessities for cooking. Located on the corner of two very busy streets - may be inconvenient for those wanting a quiet getaway because of traffic flow but is about... More

Myself and my daughter did an overnight stay at this motel and was very impressed wit the unit we stayed in. We found that the service we got at reception was very pleasant and helpful. The unit was a spacious one bedroom. This unit was very clean and accessible for us. The kitchen had more than the usual utensils to... More

We arrived, checked in and as we were bringing our bags into our room, a cleaner entered and started vacuuming the floor! That was the start, curtains all off their hooks, holes in the walls, no tissues, no soap, exterior decking covered with cobwebs. We had stayed once before and the standard has deteriorated immensely. I would not stay here... More

It was very basic and not clean. Highly priced too. it was not clean-cobwebs in the bathroom. It was uncomfortable and outdated. A small tv in the lounge area, but only beds in the lounge area. No other tv in the bedroom. We paid $155 for it and I have stayed in better in smaller towns at half the price.... More

The room was bare and not welcoming at all. yes we had trouble with the channels and tv turning off automatically. The cleaners are obviously short as the blinds above the bench were filthy along with the window ledge and windows...... never cleaned! No... More

I would stay here again because basically the room was spacious and clean and the bed was comfy. However be aware that there are some quirks. The TV channels were not working, Sky, and on reading other reviews looks like that has been the case for some time. So the owner did give me free access to the internet instead... More

Only one light in ceiling out of three was working. Only one bedside light working - one was not. Shower head useless was loose as and floppy, not a good shower at all. No salt in salt shaker was empty. Only thing good about it, it was close to venue for a Lions convention.
