Three of us stayed over night in one of the rooms that could have up to four people stay in them. On arrival, the girl at the desk was polite. She told us that because we had two cars and there was only one car park allocated for our room and because she said the motel was going to be... More

Functional for what we required. Booked a 1 bedroom motel room for $100 as we needed an affordable option for one night in the North Shore, to avoid traffic for an early morning appointment. Would not have been happy if we'd been on holiday. Our room still had the old school chunky TV (with the picture broadcast in wide screen... More

We only stayed for two nights. Not sure I would have wanted to stay much longer. The apartment was clean although everything was very dated, from the decor, carpet and bedding to the utensils in the kitchenette area. The pressure from the shower was non-existent and the toilet cistern self filled every ten minutes throughout the day and night. One... More

We have stayed here twice now, both times in a studio with four people. The rooms are clean and spacious and perfect for a quick stop over in Auckland, The location was excellent for our needs and the owners were very helpful and kind. The only negative would be the beds are very hard.

Greeted with a very untidy man and not the friendliest, stove top disgusting and scum around it, unit not clean at all, how do you expect your units to be clean when you require your guests to clean your kitchens? never heard of this before 4 star qualmark what a joke!

The good: Clean, Convenient location, and Good quality toilet paper (which is rare in motels!!) The bad: A bit crowded in the main room (queen bed fills floor space, chairs against kitchen counter don't leave much room), Left to make the kids bed myself (separate room had bunks and a single bed, we made reservation for 2 kids ... only...

This is a fairly basic motel but the rooms were clean and tidy, and quite spacious - we had a seperate bedroom. It had a fridge and microwave and the host was friendly and helpful.

Good beds, aging rooms, tv's and bathrooms... Some paint peeling from walls but if you need basic at a decent rate you cannot go wrong... Certainly wouldn't want to pay more than nz100 a night
