Very dated, terrible bed and bottom floor rooms get a LOT of noise from people walking above however it is in a handy location with a lot around its. Court yard is in very poor condition with old rotting carpet laying around

The hotel was very clean and Reception was friendly. However, not good value for price. Very spartan. Uncomfortable bed. If you are just after a bed close to airport, it is ok. Room was hot with no fly screens so had to keep windows shut to keep bugs out. No A/C. It's for sale and it's obvious owner is trying... More

The Auckland Newmarket Motel is in quite a convenient position from Auckland on Manukau Road in Epsom. The motel has been very good value for our money. When we return to Auckland again we will have no hesitation to re-book a motel room there. Three of us stayed for two nights in a motel room there with very spacious bedroom... More

I was greeted at reception by a stale odour, and after several minutes of waiting an individual entered who greeted me with YES, no hello, no smile, no welcome of any kind, just YES. After finally sorting out the key (a friend from out of Auckland had booked and paid for the room, which led to great confusion and the... More

I stayed for five nights in a studio and was given a very cheap rate ($80 per night) if I only had one service. The room is basic (as expected at this price point) but I had to ask that the room be re cleaned as there was visible dust and cobwebs in quite a few areas. The staff were... More

We thought we would try this property again having visited in April. The staff are friendly and helpful however they just don't seem to really understand the concept of value for money and attending to maintenance. It was a cold night however the wall heater was very old and did not work, the electric blanket in the single bed had... More

We arrived on Sunday planning to stay 6 nights while I received some medical attention locally. This motel was recommended because it is close to the Gillies Hospital which is well within walking distance - approx 6 minutes. This is a very good motel and we have really enjoyed our stay here. Others have mentioned the staff and so must... More

I arrived early and the staff prepared a room immediately. The TV channels weren't properly programmed and the staff made efforts to rectify and gave additional wifi time. While the wifi needs to be paid for after the first free hour, I feel the hotel would do better to provide a free wifi service. The hotel is basic, clean and... More

We just needed 1 night's accommodation in Auckland and this property suited us with it's location being close to family. There was nothing really wrong with the motel nor was there anything special that would make it a recommended stay. We were advised by other reviewers to ask for an upstairs room and this is very good advice. The operators... More
