If you like the sound of rumbling trucks and traffic and being on the flight path-plus a cold room with dated furnishings and the smell of air freshener then this is for you. It was 165 for a one bed unit. It was clean and I liked having a bath.

Our unit had two bedrooms plus an open lounge kitchenette. The rooms were a good size. They were very clean and tidy. The service was good. I liked kitchen facilities, especially the dish washer. The pool and spa pool was fun for the family.

I am a tad surprised at the other glowing reviews and must have hit the place on a bad day. A very polite welcome and a very helpful host, but it seems to end there. The rooms down the far end seem to be a hastily knocked up affair. Makes me suspicious as to its original use; a lurking suspicion... More

Good location, easy to find. Pretty standard motel rooms, were very clean and functional. Close to shops and food. Was very happy staying here. Was under the flight path but this did not bother me. Check in took a little time but the staff were very friendly. Also good option if visiting Rainbows End, within walking distance.

This was a great motel in which to stay. Friendly, helpful staff and initial impressions about the cleanliness of the room were very pleasing. Everything required for a one night stay was well provided. As it had been a hot day and a long drive up I was glad of the opportunity to use the swimming pool. The motel itself... More

Recently I had to stay at Manukau for a week for business. I was impressed at my arrival at the cleanliness of the rooms. I was in room 33 that had a large table for me to work on, WiFi that was easily connected with no problems, a kitchen, and a separate bedroom. The bed was extremely comfortable, I slept... More

Great little location! Close to major shops, food places, petrol & freeway. Room was a big enough space for 2 of us, good little kitchenette and hot plates. Lovely hosts and helped with everything we needed. Nice pool area even though it was too cold to swim. Could do with a better couch, but was comfortable enough.
