We travelled to Auckland with a large family and the 3 bedroom apartment here was perfect. The room was clean and modern and the beds were very comfy. The kids loved the pool and spa and despite the inclement weather stayed in there for quite a while. It is in a great location which gives easy access to the north... More

Great service and friendly people. Good sized rooms. Could do with modernising and repainting the interiors though. My one big gripe is with the placement of the smoke alarms... Just cooking our steak set off the smoke alarm as it is on the ceiling practically in the kitchen. Comfortable beds and a reasonable selection of TV channels. Good location -... More

Room was reasonably clean but oldish. Surprised there wasn't a heater in the room. Location is handy. Stayed for 2 nights. Was charged $50 extra for being an hour late to check out. No negotiating. Manager tried to charged me another $50 for room smelling of smoke. Yes, I am a smoker but NO I did not smoke in the... More

I stayed at this property for 4 nights whilst visiting a relation in North Shore Hospital. My accommodation was a studio unit at the rear of the property. I was surprised and delighted that there was no noise from the busy road that the Lodge is situated on. The unit was spacious, and ultra clean. The small kitchen was great... More

We arrived late at night but had pre-arranged to collect keys with reception. Very clean and comfortable - room was spacious enough for us (ground floor). Only stayed one night as we were heading north the next day. Would recommend.

There were 6 of us staying in the 3 bedroom apartment, which we found to be very spacious and clean, and a very pleasant environment to stay in. We only stayed the one night, but would loved to have stayed a bit longer and enjoyed the comfort.

We were visiting Auckland as we were going to the Bruce Springsteen concert. The location of Takapuna Motor lodge was perfect as we caught the express bus to the stadium. The bus express lane was only a 10 minute walk from the lodge. Staff were really friendly, the pool was great, and rooms suitable for a 3 night stay. Other... More

This motel was very good. The motel was clean but could do with a bit of renovating in some areas just to freshen it up. The new managers were very helpful and lovely. The breakfast was a little on the expensive side and you only got continental. When it was full, which was on most days very hard to get... More
