Travelled to this hotel with family. The units were spacious and clean, would stay again. Really enjoyed the Pool BBQ as well . The hotel is central to the local shopping Centre and beach which was handy as we did not have our own car and mostly walked to the local shops. We recommend this as a great family hotel.

We have stayed here before and it is very handy to Takapuna and the surrounding areas. The units are a good size but it is now an older Motel and needs a bit of an upgrade. The carpet to the upstairs room we had was very stained and grubby. Room itself was nice and clean and facilities otherwise fine. The... More

Kids loved the pool and the trampoline. Handy location to motorway and beach not far away. Decor a bit tired, but rooms all clean and had everything we needed. Staff very helpful and acted quickly when we wanted anything

We chose this accomodation due to last minute booking and nothing else that we wanted was available. It was a pleasant surprise. The managers are very nice and helpful. The appartment of a confortable size for 3 and very clean. It is located in a residential area and has buses running on the main road just beside the lodge.

We chose this property because it was close to Takapuna. The room was pleasing and in good condition, the bathroom and kitchen all clean and complete. Probably because it was in the middle of the Christmas/New Year holiday, we found the management, though friendly and obliging, somewhat vague. We had to ring and remind for the delivery of the complimentary... More

It looked good online, but was disappointed on arrival, as the carpets have lots of stains on them, the rooms were clean and tidy, still showed signs of heavy wear and tear. Its time to put some money into the place. We felt the price was pretty high for a sub standard accommodation. The only thing going for it is... More

Great place to stay and central to Takapuna and just off the main motorway! Good that they have one and two bedroom units as well. Good walking distance to Takapuna shops and cafes. Rooms were clean and tidy. thanks

It looked good online but in reality it was a bit tired and needed maintenance. It was clean but not perfect and there were a number of small things that were annoying. For example, only 3 of 7 lights in the entire room worked (and were not simple replace bulb problems). The curtain rails were broken which meant I couldn't... More

We recently stayed at the Takapuna motor lodge for a family event as it was one of the last rooms in Auckland we could find for 5 people over and very busy weekend. The rooms were fine, a bit dated but comfortable and clean. Having a little balcony was nice and our son enjoyed the kids playground. Good access to... More
