I stayed here the night prior to flying to the UK and on my return one month later. The staff, the accommodation, the bus to the airport - all excellent. The place to stay from now on. Well done all !

Well located to airport. Ideal with courtesy bus to airport. Good shower, luxurious bed. Would stay here again before flying out. Restaurant menu was good. We had the cheese platter with room service. Excellent value.

Woke the following morning to discover that the bed was infested with bed bugs and I had been bitten from head to toe. Management of hotel are of the belief it is not... More

I found everything to be clean and tidy. The staff were helpful and keen to see me helped to my room with my luggage. The bathroom was very spacious given the size of the room. Free shuttle to the airport was very convenient

The hotel is located at a good place and is very near to airport. They provide free shuttle to and from airport which is very convenient to people. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice and clean, and cozy. A bit expensive though since I had to stay for 2 weeks, but overall a good option.

Very close to the airport, a bit noisy, but it is in a very busy part of town. We stayed in a newly renovated room, and it was very nice, beautifully decorated, I can't say that for the surrounding hotels. The lounge/ restaurant was nice the food was good, a bit small so you may have to wait a while... More

This Lodge is very well placed for the airport and offers good quality accommodation which we would recommend. They upgraded us to a better room for no extra cost and we were sad to have such an early flight so we couldn't stay longer. Everyone was very helpful and the Lodge is very efficiently run. The shuttle service was excellent... More

We stayed only one night at the motel, which not surprisingly, is well positioned for the airport. As airport motels in New Zealand go, we must say we were very pleasantly surprised. The bar was small and friendly and the staff equally helpful. The restaurant served a good standard of food and the free shuttle to the airport was prompt... More

We had two separate stays at the Gateway. It was very pleasant on both occasions. Our rooms were very nice, super clean and comfortable. Our breakfast was good and the staff all very nice. The night pick up and check in service is very good for late airport arrivals.
