“Perfect for overnight stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2008

As others have indicated, this hotel is perfect for an overnight stay, and it is geared to providing exactly that service as it’s only 5-10 minutes from the airport terminus. Modern, clean rooms, the breakfast was great, the staff very obliging and friendly and the shuttle pickup service was very good.
Currently they are adding more rooms so there is some construction noise, but this starts around 10 am so shouldn’t bother most over-nighters.
Highly recommended for that overnight stay while transiting through Auckland Airport.

My husband and I stayed overnight with our three year old the night before our flight home. We found the hotel modern, clean and comfortable. The included continental buffet breakfast was very good.

Just a few points to note, there is no restaurant in the hotel if you don't want to order in fast food you will have to walk or drive somewhere for dinner. Parking is at a premium because the hotel allows people to park long term. There is a free shuttle to and from the airport - be sure to BOOK both transfers in advance as the hotel makes it clear they have limited room and you MUST book.

We would definitely stay here again. Great value.

We had a night at Ventura before heading to Brisbane and we were most impressed with the hotel. The pick up was efficient and we did not have to wait long. On arrival, we had a quick check-in with tasty sweets!!
The room was perfect, modern clean facilities- very comfortable.
We were impressed with the good breakfast available; perfect for those travelling with children. Good to fill the children up before the flight!
Loads of parking available too.
We will definitely be using this hotel again, when we need to have a night in Auckland as it was convenient, clean and modern.
Well done!

We had a fairly short stay at the Ventura enroute to Adelaide. Our flight did not get in until 10pm and then we were delayed getting our baggage. Not a problem as far as the shuttle was concerned. they said a 30 minute wait but it was, in reality only about 10-15minutes. Very friendly check-in and the staff made sure we knew breakfast was available from 3am! Our shuttle was booked for 5.30am. So, after a very good night's sleep in comfortable beds in a good-sized room we went down to the lobby at 5am to have some breakfast. There was an excellent selection - muffins, bread, juice, preserves, fruits (stewed and fresh), tea and coffee. The shuttle service was friendly and efficient.
I don't know what was available near this hotel as we didn't have time to explore but for a comfortable, affordable, clean, efficient and friendly place to spend a few hours, we highly recommend it.

Stayed the night before flying out of the country.

Nice big reception area where breakfast is served the next morning. You can drive right up to the door to drop off passengers and luggage. Reception staff were nice.

Our room was on the first floor overlooking the parking area - this is an ideal location as the hotel backs onto George Bolt Memorial Drive which is very noisy with traffic all night.

The room was quite large with a good size bathroom. Everything was clean and tidy. shower is over the bath.

Tea/coffee making facilities with a good range of herbal teas and decaf coffee. There was also a small fridge.

You can park for up to two weeks free of charge providing you stay one night at the hotel which is great for travellers. They do operate a 24 hour shuttle service to and from the airport. However, there is only so much room in the minibus so when checking it if you need to get to the airport the next day make sure you book a place on the shuttle then. When you fly into Auckland you need to call the shuttle to come and get you. If you choose to take a taxi to the hotel from the airport it is a fixed NZD25 from the airport.

The city centre would be a good 40 minute drive away.

There is a pub to eat at about a five minute walk away and if you are there during the day the Bendon outlet store is in the same block where you will be able to pick up some great bargains on Bendon, Fayreform, Hey Sister and Elle MacPherson lingerie.

Stayed here for one night after returning to New Zealand and found this place quite nice.
The rooms are clean and comfortable without being exceptional but some do need some minor maintenance issues as the doorhandle was coming off in the room we stayed in.
The breakfast which is in included in the room rate is very good and the dining area/lobby/reception where it is served is a nice area to hang out for a while.
If you arrive late at night and have a car, parking could be an issue as the carpark seems to fill up quite quickly but their is plenty of on street parking if your not fussed about it.
They also run a free shuttle bus every 30 minutes to the airport if you require it.
For a short term stay near the airport I would recommend this place.

Stayed two nights at the Ventura before our flight out to Sydney. We were given a suite comprising double bedroom, lounge, kitchenette, and good sized bathroom with tub and shower. All spotlessly clean. No problem with noise, and the staff were obliging whenever we contacted them. Our early morning alarm call was on time (2am) and the airport shuttle was waiting for us at 3am as arranged.
I had to check my bill twice to make sure they'd charged me for everything as it was much lower than I'd expected, so no complaints there!
The breakfast is rather basic, a help yourself cold buffet in the entrance hall, but sufficient.
All in all, an excellent place to stay and superb value.
