Stayed here for two nights earlier this year. Was a bit noisy due to a couple of sports teams staying there one of those nights. Reasonably priced and handy to so many places on The North Shore. Certainly better than some places we've stayed. Plenty of places nearby for meals to suit all. Bed was certainly comfortable and would stay... More

Stayed for 2 days in a poolside kitchen unit. Great location for easy access to motorway, north or south. Found the unit very clean and well equipped. The stay was surprisingly quiet. Returning on day 2 we found an excellent housekeeping service had been provided, better than most we experience in NZ. Would we stay here again ...... Certainly.

We stayed at this hotel a week or so ago just for one night on our way north. Our accommodation was reasonably priced, comfortable and adequate for a one-night stay – the bed was comfortable and the room had all amenities – fridge, TV, tea/coffee making facilities, iron, wardrobe with plenty of hangers, and a good size bathroom. The downside... More

We stayed here as we were going to a 21st and didnt want to drink & drive. There is plenty of eateries close and the room, although musty( with a extractor fan going as we arrived), was fine for the occasion. We asked for a quiet room and it was also good in that respect.

Stayed here for one night as attending an event nearby. The room smelt strange, kinda burnt bbq and cleaner mixed in one. Room itself was nothing special - tv, bed, white walls. Lack of door to lounge/bedroom meant room was very light all night, hard to sleep. Shower was fine. Bed okay. Would not stay here again.

Great photo of front of building does not reflect the rundown condition of the rest of the facility. Room was tiny. Bathroom was updated! Sound insulation is non-existent. Inexpensive so "you get what you pay for."

Please avoid rooms 24-31 at this hotel. It is an older run down section and the view from my upstairs room was over rubbish bins. I was kept awake by a generator switching on and off all night. When I asked to move the next night I was told the only option was downstairs in the same building and there... More

Everything was pretty much what was expected, good kitchen facilities, free wifi, friendly staff. Things that make this motel a little bit inconvienient include, * Doors take a bit of trial and error to lock, * Reception not open 24hrs (but staff never too far away, if you call the number on the sign)

- Rooms were surprisingly large with basic but entirely sufficient amenities--good value for the price - Bedding was somewhat scant for the end of an Auckland winter but manageable with the in-room heater and spare blanket in the closet - Basic continental breakfast provided with hot breakfast suggestions that could be improved (try Coffee Lab in nearby Silverfield Street) -...

I stayed here for a night at the end of travelling around NZ with my other half. She had the luxury of staying at her relatives but i stayed here due to lack of space. Nice hotel. Staff were pleasant and the room was tidy. Biggest complaint is that my room was freezing, even with the heater on. I'm an... More
