In desperate need of a refurb!!! Very dated and old looking (and smelling), air-con was loud and some light bulbs didn't work. Although the room was clean it just needed an overhaul on every aspect.. Place had just been put under new management and the staff seemed nice and helpful enough although their problems from the take over were vocalized... More

Don't be put off by the location. We had a great room. Very clean and the hosts could not have done more. We would go back, no problem. The service was excellent and we received good local advice about where to go and what to do.

yup, this place is well past it. bathroom wasn't clean, long time since the shower was scrubbed. the internet charge is a complete rip-off, $40 for two days. the window latch in mine, and a colleagues room, was broken. the rates they charge are way over priced, a fair price would be under $100/night. a negligible observation, but the size...

I was given "an upgrade" which was actually a larger room with 3 beds in, but on the ground floor. The room itself is old, beds, lamps, carper, curtains and has large windows and window-doors around.These rooms are fully view open to anyone and people walk around and park their cars literally against your windows. What about the bathroom ?... More

Couldn't be more unhappy with our stay! First impressions were bad but things couldn't of been worse if they tried. After night one bed got remade with same sheets, rubbish in room left, and generally unacceptable from the cleaners ! Bed extremely uncomtable, rooms smell very stake and dirty - I really can't explain my displeasure with this place and... More

Although I read the reviews they were so mixed I thought maybe people were just a bit fussy. But I do have to wonder if Booking.com get the worse rooms. From the outside the place looks ok and the man on the front desk was very friendly. He expalined about the card key being linked to the power it wasn't,... More

We stayed at Park Lane for 3 nights last week. while the room was a little tired, it served our purposes and was priced accordingly. The hotel is close to town and the beach. Our plans changed a couple of times and Anne and Mark couldn't have been any more accommodating, they didn't charge any additional fees and could have.... More

Our room was musty smelling. There is no light in the shower. When we arrived the TV wasn't working in the room but it was swapped. I even had to ask for a guest information folder. We came to the conclusion that they must save their worst rooms for "Fly Buys" customers.

We arrived in Auckland on 28/02, the start of our big adventure moving half way across the world from the UK to live in NZ. My new employers arranged for us to stay here as it was about the only place anywhere near the city with any vacancies; Bruce Springsteen was in town on the following night and the whole... More

Difficult to find the place at night, signage was blocked by the tress, Sharp edges of tiles of the walk in shower floor, big burn marks of the iron on the carpet good communication, receptionist was helpful, over all average, room needs improvement.
