I really enjoyed my stay here. I've heard people complain about the planes that fly overheard, but honestly, it just sounds like stormy, windy weather to me (which doesn't bother me). I stayed two nights in two different units. I preferred the Studio to the Two Bedroom as there was no traffic noise but the Two Bedroom's bedroom was nicer... More

Second time we have stayed here. This time we were offered an upgrade for $35. for the week which we accepted. Clean and comfortable with good service. Probably not the cheapest but excellent location. Can be noisy due to being on the flight path but would be the same anywhere in the area

Had been working in Auckland & had to get an extra nights accommodation & this was the only availability on Saturday night. At $299 I probably expected a bit more. The reception was very welcoming & helpful. The room was very clean & well kept & the location was handy to shopping centre & restaurants but still $299 ....don't think... More

Our room was clean and tidy but very dinghy. WE paid $170 for the night for husband and wife and would have expected a bit better than what we got. Was old, Internet was non exsistant and a party of 32 people staying further down partyed until 3am in the morning. This was very loud and the rule in the... More

We recently stayed here for 4 nights and had no issues. We were greeted at the reception and found this to easy and friendly. The room was clean and tidy no issues. We used the pool, but not the spa or sauna. The motel is very close to Supermarkets, mall and rainbows end, plenty of resturant and fast food outlets.... More

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
