The owners have got this motel completely right. The initial greeting at reception was outstanding, the room was modern and spacious and very comfortable. The decor was well chosen and the owners have gone to the trouble of getting the little details right. The wifi is reasonable, great selection of TV channels and the option to order in high quality... More

Every motel owner should stay here at least once to see how it should be done. We have stayed in over 20 different motels throughly Australia and New Zealand over the last 6 weeks and this is the best by miles. Congratulations on a superb job. The welcome, helpful approach, decor, style, size, cleanliness, bed, shower, linen, quality...all faultless. Thank... More

I've stayed here 16 times all up over the last 2 years for work, and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else! It feels like a home away from home. Claire and Richard are incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms are always beautiful and clean. Big comfy bed, well appointed kitchen, great showers. And they have the best yoghurt with... More

Very cheerful reception check us in. She even gave us a box of fresh milk for coffee. Cooking and kitchen utensils are well set in the pantry area. Bed is a little bit too soft. Clean and tidy room with honey bath amenity. Very close to city center, just 5-10 mins drive. They also have a grocery store three blocks... More

Convenient location, great friendly service, very clean and well presented with comfortable bed. I stayed in the deluxe one bedroom suite for 5 nights and the kitchenette was well equipped with a good size fridge/freezer. The unit was well presented and good onsite free parking and wi-fi. Only a few minutes drive to the city centre and 15 minutes from... More

We stayed here before going to waitomo next morning ( 1 hour by road ).This was first stop after staying with friends in auckland.We did not feel like dining out and the cooking facilities in the one bedroom apartment were good. The hospital is close by if visiting patients and the excellent Hamilton Gardens a few minutes drive. The proprietors... More

The motel is in an odd location, next to the hospital but amongst state houses. The rooms are very modern, very clean with good quality fittings. There is a busy road outside which makes for a lot of road noise when you are outside but once inside the rooms are quiet. One drawback is that there is a helicopter pad... More
