We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting family. Easy to find, just off the motorway. Good free parking. We asked for a quiet room and could hardly hear any noise. Friendly check in and helpful service. A big studio room with King bed. Very clean and a strong shower. $3 laundry machine and dryer which we used.

I travel frequently - sometimes business related and sometimes personal - this allows me to stay at many diverse locations and accommodation styles. This was my first visit to this establishment and I was pleasantly surprised. I was welcomed at reception with a friendly and helpful staff member who showed me to my room and explained where everything was and... More

We started our motoring tour of NZ from Auckland and this one was perfectly located for that. There is ample parking space and getting out of the city is a breeze as this property is located in the outskirts of Auckland. But it has bus stops and train station close by in case you want to get into the city... More

I found this place to be clean, well appointed and value for money. Easily the best accommodation in the area. I hate staying in the city so this place is perfect for me. One of the best showers I have ever had while travelling. I highly recommend.

Easy and convenient stay. Staff gave a good welcome, room was very clean and comfortable. Restaurant was simple, but the food was good. Easy access to the motorway, and reasonable price. All in all, would stay again.

This being the second time we stayed here it reinforced how good everything about the motor Inn is. The newly refurbished executive suite was absolutely stunning, spotlessly modern with a beautiful spa bath ensuite, well stocked fridge, quality bed linen etc. It was also a nice bonus to have access to 50 TV/Sky channels on a smart flat screen TV....

I travel to Auckland to visit family & friends and have finally found somewhere decent to stay. I have stayed there the last 3 visits and it never disappoints. Great value for money compared to other accommodation in the area and definitely much cleaner. My last trip was with my family and we stayed in a 2 bedroom unit which... More

We stayed here during the NRL 9's tournament. Excellent place to stay. We stayed in a one bedroom unit. Plenty of room, very clean had everything you needed in one place. Staff were excellent and very accommodating and friendly. We ate in the restaurant on one of the nights and the food was beautiful. Close to train station and town.... More

This was my very first stay in New Zealand so not sure how this compares to other hotels in this country. I have therefore decided to make the comparison to hotels I stay in all over the world. My room was spotlessly clean and was clean to a very high standard daily. Breakfast was extremely average. Wireless network was a... More

Thank you for your feedback. I guess New Zealanders are early risers as 10 am is the industry standard in NZ; having said that if a late check-out is requested we will do our best to accommodate. Our pool is definitely not Olympic sized but judging by the squeals of joy that radiates from it daily it clearly does the... More
