At first stayed in Pembrooke due to work purpose for about 6 weeks from late May to early June. Went back there again for a short getaway from Auckland with friends on a weekend in August. Highly recommended, great value, 5+ stars customer services and 5+ stars accommodations. It is located at a great location, where it is only about... More

Quiet handy location close to town center. Two supermarkets nearby. Access to easy and picturesque walking track along the river and, requiring a bit more effort, to the top of Mt Parihaka for great views. Clean, warm and spacious refurbished rooms. Friendly staff, good value.

We had travelled and stayed at a few places prior to arriving at the Pembrook. In comparison to more expensive, Auckland Central hotels I loved loved loved the Pembrook. We arrived and the rooms were ready. So spacious, had everything we needed. Due to the sheer number of people travelling in our group, I was concious of the sleeping arrangments.... More

We stayed here for two nights. The service was super-friendly and helpful - they let us check in early and apologised that it couldn't be earlier (they had to clean the room). Very informative on tourist attractions. The place was very clean, close to all the amenities - would definitely recommend it and return.

Based on the reviews I'd read of this motel I was expecting something more. The unit we had was huge -- much bigger than required for two of us, and had a huge set of bunks in the bedroom which took up a lot of space, made the balcony inaccessible and generally necessitated some odd placement of the other furniture....

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend in mid-July. The hotel was well-equipped and clean. The bathroom and kitchen areas could probably do with a pick-me-up but were perfectly functional. The price was reasonable. It was a 10-15 minute walk into town. Unfortunately our room was adjacent to the main road and so quite noisy. On the Saturday... More

Clean and comfortable rooms. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Put our bikes in secure storage, let us leave a vehicle there for a couple of days and generally went above the call of duty. Close to supermarket, restaurants and city centre.

Very reasonably priced accommodation, we had the superior room. It had everything we needed, pots pans, fridge, we cooked our own meals. Many many movies to select free of charge from reception. It was quiet, clean and well kept. We had the 1st floor, and balcony, morning sun. Would choose again if I ever head North again.
