...if you don't like people? We have stayed here on previous visits, so had no hesitation in rebooking. As always, we 'ph ahead as a courtesy, especially if arriving after a day's travel, to let our hosts for the night know we are on our way. Imagine our dismay at recving a brusque response from the male proprietor, curtly informing... More

We really enjoyed our stay, easy to find (Esmonde Rd exit on motorway), Countdown over the road with Sierra coffee (very good coffee), also IE Produce (excellent range of organic foods), shops, eateries just a short walk away down Anzac Ave (great market on Sunday morning). Room at motel absolutely spotless - bathroom like new. Very friendly and helpful hosts.... More

I go to Takapuna for a seminar yearly, this accommodation was a lovely surprise. The price was in my budget and they kindly let me park there while I attended the seminar. I usually like to try new places to stay, but I think as it stands I would definitely book there again. Keep up the good work.

Easy to find via Google Maps and on the GPS. Spotted it from the traffic lights. Welcome was friendly and information about shops, etc. provided on request. Room spotless although well used. Just off the main road, so delightfully quiet at night. Best priced motel available when researched and a 5 minute walk to the conference venue. Beds firm and... More

I have used this motel on several occasions, both Medieval re-enactment events and shows. I like the place as it is clean, tidy and has a friendly manager who is quite helpful when it comes to local knowledge. I have stayed at other Takapuna mptels, but this is my preferred one. The only minuses is the tight parking and the... More

Several of us(all adults) stayed here for 3nights and found it more than suitable for our needs. It is just off the main drag so is fairly quiet, is only about a 10minute walk to the shops and 15minutes to the beach. The rooms were clean and spacious enough for us. If I had to go to that part of... More

Room was quite nice with kitchenette near entry spacious bed/sitting/dining area and separate bathroom and toilet. Given proximity to main road was a little dubious about how quiet it would be but was very pleasantly surprised and had a great sleep. Within walking distance of shopping centre and beach area which was beautiful. We had a great stay and would... More
