I'm not sure how recently these lovely modern motel rooms were updated, and how long the fresh decor will remain looking so nice, but other things impressed me too. Both rooms (we went with another family) were impeccably clean. The kitchens were a good size and had enough utensils etc for a family of 4. The toaster and kettle were... More

The motel was amazingly cheap for top quality fittings. Very quiet, close to the hospital and main motorway. I chose this motel because it was off the main roads which worked well. Nicely furnished, clean and tidy. Dont let the reception scare you away which is a bit messy........ the rooms are great and we will be back again.

They have recently renovated their units and they have done a really good job. Our room was much nicer than we thought it would be (they should put photos of the marble bathrooms on their website) and convenient to the train. Very reasonably priced. There is some debris outside behind the rooms, just outside the back doors to each room,... More

This motel is under refurbishment. The pricing reflects this and is incredible value for Auckland. Once the remodel is finished Im sure the price will go up. We had an old room that had been remodelled. We paid $100.00 for the night with free off street parking, so very good. Its single level so no problem if you had difficulty... More

The motel is in a great quiet location, handy to everything. The motel is undergoing a refurbishement so dont take photos on website as what the rooms are. The rooms have been upgraded to modern and sleek, while we were there only half the motel was finished so it will be even better when it is fully landscaped and completed.... More

We always stay here on our occasional weekends in Auckland. It's well-located just off the motorway (but no traffic noise). Rooms are large, with well-equipped kitchenette, clean and comfortable. Extremely good value for the rock-bottom price. Staff are courteous, the worst thing one could say is that the decor and facilities are a bit tired, and could use renovation -... More

This motel was grotty!! Window latches that didnt shut properly, the door lock was broken, the duvet covers were dirty and I found a hair in one of the beds. The dishcloth under the sink was wet and smelled bad, I didnt want to touch anything in there as it just felt so unclean. Only 1/2 a roll of toilet... More

Beware of online specials! Horrified at how misleading they can be. !!! Took up one of the online specials $138 reduced to $69 for one night, leave car while away and use their shuttle to and from airport.... all sounded good but the room was off a corridor like a dormitory. The outside mat was threadbare on the side walked... More

When i stayed there last, there was a human poo left on the office steps. The owners tried to cover it up by covering it with flowers.
