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

Booked in to this motel solely for the 24 hour shuttle as we had a 6am international flight. Nobody turned up, despite confirming the time just a few hours earlier. No info in the room about how to get hold of staff. Also no folder with local information which made trying to call for a taxi difficult. Nearly missed our... More

We stayed here one night prior to an early finger national flight the next morning. The bedroom is small with only one chair but we had a good sleep. The TV would only work on 2 channels. The hostess was extremely obliging, running around making sure things were OK, and called in a cleaner to do a few odd little... More

We were happy with our stay - it was ok and airport transfers were helpful. But while on holiday we had an email from the police informing us that our car had been found (in the same suburb as the motel) with the ignition pulled out (among other damage). While this was an unwelcome shock it was even more disappointing... More

I flew into Auckland very early morning. One phone call and Colin ( the manager) came to pick me up free of charge!!!! Upon arrival I received early check in and was awaiting two friends to join me. Airport Gold Star Motel provided another shuttle to pick up the remaining two people for a low additional cost. The room was... More

This hotel is in need of a serious upgrade, whilst the TV was a large size with a few extra channels the accommodation misses basics like a microwave aircon and soap. The oven door will not open unless the front door is open or you force it past the door handle and the fridge does not keep the items cold... More
