Very dated rooms, poor quality television reception, found head hair still in bathroom drawer - obviously not cleaned from previous occupant. No airconditioning. Would not recommend for a business traveller.

This was our first stay in New Zealand. It was ok for the money. No air con which was fine but coming from England's winter to New zealand summer was hard to adjust lol but that was down to us. Pool was ok and hot tub fine a tad to much chlorine. A short walk or drive into the centre.

Our family of 4 stayed for one night. Nice place very clean. Has a nice clean swimming pool. Free laundry facilities. Only thing that was disappointing was the manner in which we where greeted reception lady gave us our room key and that was it.

at $270 a night for a two bedroom fairly spacious apartment, this was ok, the people were really great and helpful, and the room was ok. the outdoors of the motor lodge including balcony could be cleaned a little more thoroughly. overall, nice couple of nights stay. Kids loved the pool area.

Stayed for a night here. Quick and friendly check in. Room pretty standard, partially renovated with a newish kitchen, other areas less so. My main complaint was the shower. For some reason the shower unit has been raised about 30 cm above the bathroom floor. Stepping up onto a slightly sloped slippery shower cubicle made me slip slamming my big... More

hospital, Catholic church, supermarket, KFC, sushi. Takapuna proper is still walking distance.no complaints in the 4 weeks we stayed self-catering except for the unfriendly reception, seemingly poor internet connection at late nights and I-don't-know-whats-wrong-with-room-14-shower-head. excellent Chinese, Tongan and Filipino staff

We stayed here for a conference in the area, it was clean, tidy but just a bit dated. Everything worked well and its location is perfect for Takapuna business. We would stay here again as the little kitchenette is handy and the extra sleeping space in the lounge made this motor lodge well priced for 3 adults.

Arrived early evening in the dark. Felt the person in reception could have been a bit more welcoming and more pro active about what the place had to offer. Colleague and I had to ask about getting breakfast--there was no order form in my room-- and we filled in forms on the spot. There was no information provided about getting... More

Have been to this hotel multiple times and it has always been consistent in its quality and pricing. We arrived at the hotel earlier than the check in time and the receptionist was kind enough to have the room ready for us as soon as we arrived. The rooms are huge and the family apartments make you feel like you... More
