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

Very clean - everything you needed in the room - even a fan which was great as the weather was warm. Only complaint was that both my husband and I woke covered in bites on our lower legs / feet. Can only presume it was bed bugs!! My husband mentioned this to the manager in the morning and his was... More

Very clean comfortable rooms. Everything you need for a family to relax and enjoy. Awesome location, close to shops, restaurants, beaches and the motorways. Will stay here again. Only complaint was the tiny TV, but we didn't go to Auckland just to watch TV so not a major.

We had a great stay at Takapuna Motor Lodge, the family unit was spacious and clean, I enjoyed the wee deck that you can sit outside and have a barby! The girls enjoyed the pool. It was surprisingly quiet being on the main road and all. Location was great, close to the motorway and Takapuna township. One thing I would... More

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
