Fantastic location, well appointed rooms, extremely clean & tidy, friendly accommodating staff everything you could need & want. We only stayed 1 night but would definitely stay again & highly recommend to others. Cost effective for location too. Awesome spa bath. We couldn't fault this place.

Stayed 6 nights settling our son into relocated life for Uni, flat ting and sport. Ideal location for us. Facilities spotlessly clean and staff friendly and helpful. Free wifi would have been an added bonus but would definitely return to stay here again.

Very noisy fridge at night, turn it off. The room looked a lot bigger on-line so I wish we had looked before paying. No microwave, cooking equipment, utensils or plates, also you couldn't cook anything. If you needed to wash your cups you had to do so in the bathroom. (yuk). The room was so tight and small we spent... More

We stayed for just one night while visiting a relative. It was ok - a bit impersonal but reasonably clean and well equipped. The bathroom was excellent. Location is not very pretty but extremely convenient.

As other reviewers have noted we did turn the fridge off overnight, noticed some road noise, and the unit had no utensils or cooking facilities. Units were... More

If you need to be handy to the North Shore hospital well then this is the place to stay. It is only a five minute walk to the hospital. The rooms are apartment with everything you should need whilst in the area. There are local shops and within a five minute a choice of several places for something to eat.

Spent one night here, having chosen the motel for its convenient location and was not disappointed. Room was of a good size, with a large, comfortable bed. Very quiet, considering the busy traffic outside. The person at reception was friendly and helpful. Had a great meal at a Malaysian restaurant down the road in Milford.

I stayed in this motel on business and found it pleasant and comfortable. The location is good and underground carparking is provided, which is very convenient. I was impressed with the very helpful and friendly staff. The gentleman at the desk carried my bags up to my room for me and was most helpful during my stay. The room was... More
