Stayed over at the Grange motel for one night when we had a stopover at Auckland. The only issue we had was to find the address. the address states Cnr Grange road, which we were unable to find on our Satnav. Finally after asking a lot of people, we realised that Cnr stood for 'Corner', which meant corner of grange... More

I had a nice welcome by the owners, who offered thorough hospitality to make sure I was all set and also left me to my own devices without being over-involved (a careful balance). After a stressing day of travel that was exactly what was needed. The room was nice and I wish I spent more than one night to enjoy... More

The Grange Lodge Motel is located about a 15 minutes drive from Auckland airport and 5 minutes from the main north-south highway that runs through Auckland. There are service stations located on the way to the airport which is very convenient if you are returning a hired car. The motel is not ultra-modern but it has all the necessary items... More

Out of all the motels we stayed at throughout our trip, this was our favorite. The owners of the lodge were absolutely fabulous. Bernie (one of the owners) met us upon our arrival with hot, fresh chocolate chip muffins, and she upgraded our room free of charge. The room was spacious, cozy, clean, and comfortable. We loved getting to know... More

When we pulled up, we thought "uh oh", but when we were shown to our room we were pleasantly surprised with the room and the cleanliness. It was perfect for just the one night, as there isn't much to do around there and it's right off the busy road. The hosts were very pleasant.
