We stayed at this motel when visiting friends in Auckland. The accommodation consists of a double bedroom, lounge, basic kitchenette and a small bathroom with shower and toilet. There is access to a small balcony. Rooms are small. A short walk brings you to the beach and promenade at Kohimarama and to local cafes, restaurants and shops. From here there is public transport into Auckland city centre. A longer walk takes you to the lively resorts of Mission Bay and St. Heliers where there are lots of bars and places to eat. The owners were helpful with local information, printing off maps, etc. All in all the motel is good value for its location close to the beach and its proximity to Auckland city centre.
