“new haven motel kelston auckland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Have travelled extensively in NZ but this was 1 of the best motels we stayed in. Clean well equipped friendly. Ian and staff are model on NZ hospitality.
Great for public transport to Auckland as well.

Room Tip: If you have children they would love Alpine unit

Stayed here for one night. Staff were extremely friendly. Room was clean but in need of an upgrade. Could not find remote for the tv, but got in late at night so did not want to disturb staff. Maybe you have to pick it up on booking in?

I have stayed in many motels and this one really takes the cake! Super clean, comfortable beds, immaculate inside and out. Despite being near a busy road the double windows kept out most of the traffic noise. The staff couldn't have been more helpful - my granddaughter wanted the Disney Channel but we couldn't get it so the Manager got the Sky serviceman in straight away and the problem was solved. Brilliant. The swimming pool was beautifully clean as was the spa. The Manager turned the spa on immediately we asked and it was wonderful. Motels just don't get any better for the price. I will definitely stay there again when in Auckland. So handy to the trains and malls and eating places. Perfect!

We have stayed here several times this year, and will continue to do so in the future.
Both the reception and housekeeping staff are very friendly and helpful, and the units are very clean and well presented.
We made use of the gym which was a bonus for my partner and I!
Ian, the owner, is an absolute gem, and will keep you entertained in quirky conversation if you have the opportunity.
The motel is located within walking distance of a large shopping complex (Lynnmall) and public transport.
We have stayed in many motels all over New Zealand and rate the New Haven amongst the best in it's price range.

I booked this motel after reading other favourable reviews on this site. What a great choice. We got upgraded to a 2 bedroom unit which was very quirky and homely and way more room than the 3 of us needed. The beds were fantastically comfortable and the entire unit was spotlessly clean. Despite being situated on a busy main road we heard no traffic noise. Management very friendly, it was great value for money and we would definitely stay here again. Thanks for a great stay.
