Called in on the spirit of the moment for Sunday lunch, and wished we hadn't. The lady on the counter was too busy with the cash till to seat us. Then the phone rang and 5 min + later we were shown to our table. I found the salad bar to be fresh but the selection was very limited. The... More

Front desk staff most helpful and welcoming.The room was a really pleasant surprise, as it was very roomy , clean and with all facilities .The bathroom had a bath and roomy separate shower.Especially welcome as some showers over the bath are sometimes awkward to get...

Spent $46.50 for a mid year Christmas lunch. Was so utterly disappointed with the food choice. Had the buffet. The selection was salad, salad and more salad. The desert selection was so basic not appealing at all. Cold crumbed fish and cold tiny baked potatoes. I was really disappointed with the service in the restaurant. we were only asked if... More

Stayed here for a few nights in June 2015. The rooms are spacious and clean. Hotel staff friendly. Hotel location are fantastic. We walked to the Sylvia Park Mall within 10 minutes and there you can catch the train to all stations. It is safe and the hotel settings are beautiful with a view on the the Mt Wellington volcano....

Stayed here in June overnight with a work group. The lady on reception who I dealt with was very good, as I was trying to decide whether or not to get my own room rather than pairing with a work colleague. She gave me a few options and was very helpful. The only problem was she didn't give me directions... More

Have stayed here a few times and was amazed that internet isn't free, for such a nice motel. I paid $9.95 for 24 hours access. Good in every other way . Nice and close to walk to Sylvia Park ( 10 mins walk)

On this visit we booked in for three nights over Christmas. Once again, the hotel delivered, with good value rooms, friendly and helpful staff and the convenience of being close to Sylvia Park shopping centre. The parking is free and the views out to the Panmure Basin make you feel you are a long way from Auckland's horrific traffic.

Had 2 nights here and haven't stayed here for about 10 years. The rooms are fine, not great. Very similar to an Ibis hotel which is functional rather than luxurious. However, the service from reception to meals was much better than the average hotel. I had the buffet one night and a la carte the second. Once again the buffet... More
