This place needs a major refurbish,the only good thing I can say is that the lady at reception was very helpful when I asked for another room as the one allocated had a bad musty smell and to many faults to mention. I would not be surprised if this hotel folds in the near future due to the major upgrade... More

Location = fantastic. Everything else = major letdown. Whilst this place may have been very swanky back in 1998 it is now well past its best and needs a major overhaul. The room was big, but smelled damp and was pretty shabby. The bathroom was also big, but there was mould on the walls and the toilet wasn't fixed to... More

Was happy with the average quality and cleanliness of accommodation, and everything was on hand. Items that were damaged/broken were quickly attended to by helpful staff - so can commend the room/bathroom and good location. Booking staff helpful and friendly, but this hotel charges $100 BOND! Not a deposit of $100 with the balance payable, but a whole extra $100... More

Auckland was booked out due to all the attractions happening in Auckland.We had to opt for more expensive lodging for one night while visiting Auckland on business.The motel offers a pool, gym and sauna none of which we used.We had our own wifi via our mobile phone.The room was well appointed and clean.Noisy till 11pm otherwise fine.

We stayed here last weekend with a group of friends. We found our unit clean and spacious. So close to the beach and short walk to beach and cafes etc. owners were very new to motel life and hence a few minor hiccups. Great little swimming pool and heaps of ample parking.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. Ok place to stay if only need a bed to sleep for a night however we found it very overpriced. Can't say it was anywhere worth $199 for 3 people! Location was great for downtown Takapuna and event we were at. In real need of an update or at least a good tidy up... More

After a previous unhappy visit to this Motor Inn I decided to pay extra and upgrade to a Spa Studio ( my initial bookings was via flybuys). The location was great for me and the room itself while out of date provided all the basic amenities with a balcony and this was a relief in the hot weather. On the... More

One night stay courtesy of Fly Buys, before moving into Auckland CBD for a concert. The accommodation is certainly in need of refurbishment. Most things are well worn, bed not the best, and the TV, gee my tablet screen is nearly as big. But it was comfortable and quiet. If I could score a 2.5 thats what it would be.

This hotel is way past its heyday, but the kids enjoyed the pool and I enjoyed staying on the North shore of Auckland. Overpriced compared to what we have been paying in other hotels in NZ. The host was friendly and helpful but a major overhaul is needed for this property.
