I must admit it was a nice experience to be close to ASB Showgrounds with good clean accommodation. Pity that the youngsters upstairs decided to wake us up each night at midnight coming back from town :) But overall was simple, clean and yes even with the wake ups I am pretty sure we would use it again :)

We walked in and booked a room for two of our relatives from overseas about two weeks before their arrival. The reception lady promised a room for us at that time and also took our credit card number for the reservation. However when we called them again in the morning on the guests' arrival day to reconfirm the room, we... More

Stayed here during our weekend to the NRL 9's at Eden Park, were abit worried about what we would find when we turned up after reading previous reviews. Place is pretty run down and old school but hey we were only there too sleep. It is a short walk to the bus stop (airport express) on Mount Eden Road and... More

Booked into this motel with a group of friends for the night before heading out of Auckland. Main attraction was the location. Got there to find a run down 80s concrete block / jungle, which apparently has only limited out water. Seeing as we were only staying for one night we decided it was easier to simply put up with...

Tired, not overly clean. Hot water appalling. Ran out after 2 min shower. At $195 a night for 3 adults and a 4 year old very poor value. No hairdryer. Heater barely adequate for size. Would never stay again. After complaining was offered another unit but no doors on bedrooms. Owner did have a wee clean while we were out... More

We needed accommodation for 2 grownups and 5 children under 12. Mt Eden Motel was able to provide us with a three bedroom unit at a reasonable cost sleeping up to 8. Whilst it's not the flashist motel it was absolutely perfect for our needs. Situated 10mins from everywhere we needed to be, vector arena, the zoo, motat etc.,. Three... More

happy to recommend this motel. we wanted somewhere to stay the night and nothing more, it fulfilled that requirement exactly. Good pricing for what we received. Handy to the area we wanted and the staff were very helpful.

On the plus side - plenty of space in the 3 bedroom apartment, a very well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, resonable parking, attentive staff who deliver your continental breakfast the night before. No real road niose. Most quiet if you are in a room facing the back. Great value for money. There is a full washing line if you need... More

This motel is in a great location - not far from the city, walking distance to Auckland University Epsom campus and the Mt Eden shops nearby. The rooms are old, tired and absolutely lacking. This could be such an incredible complex. It probably gets fully booked due to location, and with some attention it could be such a pleasant place... More

The place is falling apart with handles falling off oven doors, fridges etc. The two bedroom apartments have no ceiling on the first floor, the second bedrooms did not have a door so you can hear everything going on in every room. The landlord and landlady severely lack people skills. We were singing Christmas songs on Christmas eve at 6.30... More
