Tired, dated and not particularly customer focused, this place is fine if ALL you want is somewhere to keep your stuff safe, somewhere to prepare a simple meal and somewhere to sleep. The rooms are simple painted block (we had room 17 – upstairs - but all the rooms look similar) with a very basic microwave, oven/stove/cooker (with broken ring),... More

Myself and two teenagers stayed here for a night because our floors were being sanded and varnished....It was very handy for our work etc, ,,however it is well outdated...I don't like to say negative things about people but the owners were not very friendly at all.. When I checked in at 4pm we wanted to have a shower, but the... More

Cleaners suck, staff is not helpful and services provided are not adequate. I'd say its best not to stay here at all as others have pointed out, not recommended except as an option of the last resort.

In our unit, which was a little grubby and dated , the toilet cistern kept filling up every 3 minutes all night keeping us awake. Absolute torture. Rubbish from previous guests was still under the bed. Cobwebs hold the place together. They do have Wifi for free but it is not a brilliant connection... but it was free. No breakfast... More

I needed somewhere to stay for two nights while in Auckland for a weekend meeting. This motel made the cut because it was close to where I needed to be. It met my needs but it is rather basic and somewhat dated, with some facilities needing an upgrade. The service was OK; it was good when I checked in but... More

We booked one night during the New Year's holiday just to visit friends in AKL. We chose this motel simply because it is close to where our friends live. After a long drive from Hamilton, my 2+ year old daughter was hungry and sleepy and crying for some milk. We just arrived and had not get a chance to shop... More

We had a large spacious family unit that seemed to reasonably priced for the location and age. Kitchen was adequate, dated in need of refurbishment but certainly adequate. Nice to see free Wifi, a practice many hotels charge for and charge unreasonably. This was a nice touch. It was sad to say that the water pipes must rate as the... More

I used to live a couple of houses away from this motel and thought that it looked okay, so when we had to book me in to a motel for a night while visiting Auckland after moving to Tasmania we chose this one because we 'knew' it. Obviously judging a book by its cover with this motel was not a... More

Sadly, I didn’t check on Trip Advisor before I booked into the Ellerslie Highway Motel – that will teach me! Having booked online the night before (for two nights), we arrived to find that they were not expecting us. However, they had a studio apartment available, so we were allocated “Suite 23”. Sounds rather grand, doesn’t it? In it’s favour... More
