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

This is very basic accomodation at a not so basic price. We got one small cake of soap to be used wherever required. We had to phone reception to get a spare blanket as it was very cold, why it wasn't already in the room is unknown. They said that we can come and get a blanket if we wish,... More

my partner and i were on a trip from North to just spend a day in Auckland and we were not planning to stay the night. But it was too late to drive hence we booked a room in Manukau Heights Motor Lodge. Within short notice we were given a room and the service was excellent, everyone working at the... More

This accommodation is probably best suited for short stays. It is a ten minute walk to the pick-up point for the Airport Shuttle and nearest shopping mall. My husband and I stayed overnight before flying out of Auckland at the end of our trip. It was basic, with a TV, kettle, fridge and coffee/tea making facilities. Hairdryers are available on... More

Lucky I was only staying for 1 night. Heater down stairs didn't go, tv reception rubbish on both tvs, poor for this day of digital tv transmission, electric blanket didn't work, lack of extra bedding for the bed. Other than that the room was not too bad. The reception staff were friendly and had been upgraded to a bigger room.... More

Reasonable price considering the Rugby World Cup is on and the All Blacks were playing in Auckland... Room to myself, with plenty of space. Shops, Pubs and Eateries within a few minutes walk. Housekeeping staff were most accommodating if anything was required (soaps and towels, loo roll etc...). Would stay again, without question.
