Stayed a total of 5 nights over 3 visits while visiting friends and touring in North Island. Staff were very friendly and welcoming and the rooms were clean and comfortable but everything was looking a little bit tired. The facilities are fairly standard, microwave, toaster and kettle, and the continental breakfast which we used on our first morning in NZ... More

Had to pay $100 bond at check in. One bedside lamp didn't work, it wasn't plugged in so they must have been aware of it. Very loud buzzing noise outside our room. Bugs and cracks in the shower. No direct light in the shower so was quite dark. The exit fan in the bathroom was incredibly loud and turned on... More

If don't spend much time in your hotel room but out and about Takapuna this place is perfect. The room is a little bit dated but its made up on the location and friendliness of the hotel manager. I enjoyed my stay here

We just needed a place to stay handy to a friends wedding, so we picked this more for location than anything else. Yes, it is very old and dated. The air conditioning didn't work in our room. It was no trouble at all to be moved to another. There was plenty of hot water and the shower was great. The... More

While conveniently located and maybe wute good twenty years ago, you need to take a pass on this place. First, upon checkoing in they demanded a 100 dollar "property bond"; second the electricity in the rooms can only work with the onekey they give you inserted in the wall so that if one of you leaves you have to chose...

Dirty, old, un kept. This place is probably the worst I have ever stayed at.Rotting timber, a fridge that didn't work, coat hangers hanging from the aircon unit were just a few of the items that faced us. The staff were more concerned with getting our payment than anything else. The place needs gutting and a complete re furbish. Take... More

The only good thing about this motel is the staff. it is like stepping back in time. A uncared for property with messy gardens. the rooms are awful. decor is old and dirty. bathrooms are dirty and outdated. our room was on groundfloor and directly by the carpark. it was like a fishbowl. we had to keep the curtains closed...

Wonderfully helpful and friendly staff. The motel has seen much much better days and hasn't been maintained since the 1990s. Rooms are riddled with damp, rotten wood and bugs, not all windows open or lock. In our case, the air conditioner) didn't work either. The pool was cloudy, with broken plaster and tiles - not swimmable. The room was spacious... More

Friendly helpful staff. On main road of Takapuna so noisy but very close to excellent bus system. Sixteen minutes to Auckland City. Excellent restaurants at Takapuna and neighbouring suburb Devonport. Coffee plunger for those who like real coffee and real milk on request.

On the booking website the Hotel looked OK and we had left it to the last minute so booked without checking Trip Advisor, silly us! This place is suffering from long term neglect and the rooms felt grimy and the bathroom was in appalling condition. The beds were lumpy, the tap nearly came off when we went to fill the... More
