This is the third time I have used Albany Oak Motel to host a number of judges, both international guests and Kiwis. Very good quality, spacious rooms, modern bathrooms and good kitchenettes. Included in our tariff is breakfast at the nearby café - plenty of options and friendly service. The motel owners are also great hosts and very helpful in... More

Arrived at last minute due to mix-up at previously booked motel. Arranged alternative motel for first night as fully booked but we returned for next 3 nights. Staff very obliging, unit clean, spacious and quiet. Definitely would return.

Two nights, in a very chilly Auckland, and not an extra blanket to find. VERY light on the bedding, so I ended up wearing my thermals to bed AND leaving the heat-pump on, which was NOT very effective in the large room. My poor mate that slept in the lounge area on the fold-out (which I had to pay extra... More

We travelled from the South Island with my 94 year old mother-in-law. We were made welcome and felt at home from the beginning. Rooms were clean. Staff courteous and friendly. Nothing was a trouble for them to do for us. Linen changed and units cleaned every day. We enjoyed the spa pool. Perfect location for the motel - close to... More

Very nice room which was clean and in a lovely quiet area. Very comfortable bed and a superb shower. Check in was easy and the staff very friendly. Great place to stay if attending anything at the North Shore Events Centre.

This is a standard motel in a convenient location. Quiet and clean, with helpful staff and close restaurants and cafes. Easy accommodation. Ample car park, and pleasant layout. Only room noise was distant road hum if you leave the window open.

I am a frequent business traveller to this Motel. A very friendly family staff and a ginger cat welcomes you to a good sized room - all airconditioned. The beds are fantastic - I was late for the meeting the first time so I will use the alarm in the future. Great TV with Sky TV. Negatives: You need a... More

This motel had all the amenities that you could ask for, in a quiet yet easily accessible location. With tea/coffee making facilities, a kitchenette, and air conditioning, it made it a welcome place to come back to, to lay ones head for the evening. The room was clean and tidy, with the linen changed daily. Checkin and check out was... More
