We had a lovely stay and the facilities are very good! People are very kind, helpful and welcoming. Fantastic waterfront view and very close to everything. We had a very comfortable stay and enjoyed everything very much!

My wife & i are a senior couple in our 60s. We came to Auckland to stay for a wedding. We booked this motel online because it looked good and was at a reasonable price. When we arrived we discovered different. We ended up in the "garden unit" and not the chalets as viewed. The place looked liked some slum... More

We visited Auckland to attend our daughters wedding. We were booked to spend six nights at this motel. The marketing gave the impression that if looked OK. When we were arrived we were given unit 15, a very run down room that was located at the back of the motel. It can only be described as a slum. The carpet... More

This hotel has a collection of what are essentially apartments. Our apartment had a fantastic water front view. Our room had two floors, with the top floor including a loft area. The room was comfortable. Good service. We ended up finding a good collection of restaurants around 2 km away near the marina.

Very run down but very expensive for the condition of motel Needs a good clean and a renovation. Sheets and towels are clean but shower is very temperamental. No tv in upstairs bedroom. Will not stay there again if there is another place nearby.

Rooms are dirty, and run down. Location and view of the water is the only good thing about the place. Half the items form the room were missing, beds are as old as the 70's furniture. And almost everything was falling apart. It's not value for money what so ever

When we arrived we did not know it was an upstairs unit with a steep stairway that my 81 year old mother could not get up. We could not stay due to this but the manager still charged our credit card. This is a disgrace. It was not that we did not want to stay there but we couldn't due... More

Awesome location. The chalets are adequate but quite dated wallpaper peeling. The grounds need attention. Bus stop 1 minute walk no need to drive around Auckland. Shop takeaway and restaurant close by. The breakfasts were really good. Enjoyed our stay but a bit pricey for the standard of the chalet.

The chalets are really nice. Perhaps not great for children. It's self catering but there are nice restaurants nearby. (Indian and local) The young Chineese couple in the reception is very friendly and helpful and helped making my stay more enjoyable. The view is fantastic as soon you go outside. A really nice location.

When moving house a few weeks ago, we needed to stay two nights in East Auckland and found this this place on line. We arrived after an exhausting few days for a warm, quiet two nights but... the first unit was cold with electric blanket not working and minimal heating. Tried phone to call office but it wasn't working either.... More
