We were staying here before we went to Australia to take advantage of the airport drop off and parking offer. The host was so unfriendly, he was not keen to take us to the airport at the time we wanted as he wanted to sleep, however we were not informed at any time of the booking process that there were...

I chose this motel as it offered a large family room, was close to airport and offered a free 24 hour shuttle. Due to arrive in NZ just after midnight, this sounded great. Two days before arriving, they emailed and advised us to catch a taxi to motel. We insisted they pay for our taxi upon arrival. The room was... More

My friends and I decided to stay at this place for a night because it was close to the airport and they state on their website that airport transfer is offered. However upon checking in and telling the man (think he's the boss) at the reception that we have a flight early morning the next day he asked us to... More

My family and I stayed here in April 2014 and woke to terrible itching and things crawling all over us. The motel unit we were in was INFESTED WITH FLEAS!! We did not sleep a wink! The owner took us to the airport very early (4.30am) and I explained to him that the room was infested with fleas. He initially... More

We recently visited New Zealand and this was going to be our final night there. It was chosen because it was close to the airport for our early departure next morning. We booked this through Expedia NZ with a so called 'confirmed booking'. We arrived around 10-30pm to be told that the studio units weren't available as they were booked... More

This hotel is basic but really easy and clean. The decor is quite dated but everything is as should be - except no iron in the room. Carpet was worn. The massive TV on the wall is great but feels out of place in these rooms. There is also nowhere to get food and nothing really close. We stayed in... More

A group of us stayed a night at the Gold Star Motel which was an interesting experience. The lack of hospitality (and English) from the onset should have been adequate warning! The beds were quite comfortable, the sheets were clean and the layout and the facilities in the room were adequate. The cleanliness of the semi-tired room was under par.... More

I stayed at this hotel with my husband and daughter as a stopover before picking up our rental campervan the next day. Hotel facilities were very poor, but the bathroom was dangerous. Shower was over a very slippery well worn bath, tiles were coming off and were not fixed to the walls. My husband slipped in the bathroom and cracked... More

I used this motel a lot for my customers, because I thought is was close to Auckland Airport and they offer a early shuttle to the airport. Well I will never ever recommend this motel ever again. The husband slipped in the shower, the wife rung the ambulance, they later found out that he had fractured his back. Now the... More
