The reason that I've picked this motel for my friend to stay in is because of its location. Its a pretty old accommodate with a pretty new entrance. The Wi-Fi is slow. Noice is a problem too. We are lucky to have a room upstairs that you can have a good view on the corridor. But walking up the stairs... More

Awesome value for money, very clean and easy to find. Great location. Walls a bit thin so if you have noisy neighbors earplugs would be handy. Exceptional value for money. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again :) Very friendly staff too.

The Poenamo has been around longer than I can remember so since I was attending a party next door, thought I'd spend the night locally. Although it is looking very dated on the outside these days (cheap motel looking), it has been renovated very well on the inside and looked very modern indeed. A massive TV on the wall, new... More

A reasonable hotel. The staff were very helpful -- even to the point that the guy on reception donated his own vegemite when we ordered our continental breakfast!! The room was a good size and very clean, no aircon but it wasn't hot. Fortunately we were not too close to the pub/hotel so it was reasonably quiet. However, we were... More

Organised a group of about 50 people for a reunion in the middle of the day. About 25 of us used the restaurant. Most opted for the fish and chips or salt and pepper calamari. They felt that the meals were good value and up to standard. I opted for the Cajun chicken salad. It was okay but the chicken... More

I landed on the door at the Poenamo with no reservation late on a Sunday. The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. The room was clean, comfortable and despite the hotel being on a main road it was not noisy. The choice of restaurants on site was good and made things easier. Would happily stay here again.

Wow - this place is amazing. We stayed for 4 nights in a pool studio room. Great kitchenette separate to bedroom. bathroom separate too. Staff were very friendly and helpful, fairly decent restaurants (Especially Bushman's) in the complex and it is in a very handy location being extremely close to the main Auckland Motorway. Heaps of parking available Shopping centre... More

...to stay in this place! Our room had an undefinable odour combining old rancid fat with cloying room freshener. Possibly the result of a filthy commercial kitchen rubbish yard right outside our window (we arrived late at night and discovered this in the morning) The ambience is best described as third world industrial factory - a large walk-in freezer -...
