A last minute trip to Auckland left us scrambling for a place to stay close to Manukau. We selected the little loft room which turned out to have amble space, a decent shower and very comfy bed with good clean linen. Be warned there are some fairly serious stairs involved if you have a lot of heavy luggage and you... More

Very clean and spacious room here with lovely shower and tidy modern furnishings, comfy bed and veiws to Auckland and Rangitoto. This motel is on the flight path to Auckland airport but it does not have flghts all night long so was perfectly fine. I thought it was on the upper end of reasonable pricing and came with 800mb wifi... More

Stayed in a room right at the back of the site which only had one other room nextdoor. (PEACE & QUIET) Loved the jacuzzi bath in the bathroom. Good price. Good for a couple wanting a nice, clean, fresssh, simple room.

Very nice place. Spotlessly clean. Very comfortable beds. Great view. Handy to the motorway without being too close. Unfortunately the shower was a bit tricky to operate, and so were the TV and the cook-top, but overall I would definitely recommend this place.

Booked via the internet, sight unseen..Good views from lounge, just off aircraft approach path to airport..Far enough away that there is only a low hum from even the largest aircraft but close enough for good viewing..First room was 'unusual' in that the entrance gave into the main room/bed/lounge, but the kitchen and single bed were downstairs, 15 of them..Again our...

This place is easily accessible from Highway 1 both north and south. Entrance into the premises is a bit of a trick as you have to cut across on-coming traffic and drive up a steep incline. It is close enough that you can walk (15-20 minutes) to the bus and train terminals at Manukau City Central and it is also... More

We needed just one night's accommodation in the Manukau area, and booked Manukau Heights Motor Lodge on the premise that my husband stayed here 15 years ago and found it good. 15 years later, nothing has changed - literally..... Very basic accommodation, tired, old, but most, disappointing, dirty. The toilet had stains, the white toilet brush was a grey/black colour,... More

One night stop after picking children up from international flight. Rooms clean and tidy although a little small. For 4 people just one small cake of soap, time motels all provided shower gel dispensers! Upstairs bedroom very hot on arrival but cooled in the evening. Would be unbearable in summer. Main detraction was the noise particularly from the flights coming... More
