“Tuakau Hotel/Motel unit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

Wow! How Tuakau has changed! Brilliant Motel 1 bedroom unit. Excellent staff and service from reception through to bar and restaurant(amazing big breakfast!). We were in town one night only for my nieces wedding (Buckland) and wish we could have stayed longer. We used the Courtsey van service driven by awesome Hotel receptionist Friday 30/5/2014. 11 am check out was great. Best place in town to stay. Ikon Hair salon in the main street and Chole (hair stylist) are fantastic thanks so much Jess (Tuakau Hotel receptionist) for suggesting them.

Room Tip: 1 bedroom unit had tv's in both rooms great for family

Wonderful one night stay before leaving NZ, Tasha upgraded our room in celebration of our anniversary. Beautiful room and the gift of brownies were delightful Restaurant meal was very good indeed. Enjoyed the busy friendly bar.. We had dinner with my childhood friend and the staff knew it was special and comp'd us a bottle of bubbly, Great staff and we would stay there again either on our way in or out of Auckland so close to the airport. Can't say enough in appreciation!!

Had a night at Tuakau Hotel and wish it could have been longer. The room was spotless and the service was amazing. Had dinner, which was also to a high standard. The room was quiet even though it was right in town.

Stayed two nights. Accommodation was lovely and comfortable and clean. It was all good but the staff really made it. Everyone we came into contact with was friendly and helpful. We also dined in the restaurant and the food was excellent.

We stayed at the Tuakau Hotel our first night in New Zealand. Jet lag definitely took its toll, so we slept for about 13 hours that night. The location, within reach of Auckland but in the more peaceful countryside that we had come to New Zealand to enjoy, was perfect. The staff showed us around the room and told us how everything worked, provided free milk and brownies (twice), and even gifted us with a small stress-ball like cow named Tua :) Tua was our companion for the rest of our two-week trip!

The staff at the Tuakau hotel were fantastic! Very friendly, informative and helpful especially Alexander the GM who gave us a thorough run though of the room and hotel features when we arrived and also Tasha who called us straight after we departed to say we had left something in the room which was much appreciated. They made us feel valued and it was easily the best service we have ever had at a hotel. Check-in and check-out was quick and easy. Rooms were amazing. Very clean, modern and with great facilities. The shower was particularly impressive. Would happily recommend to all and we will definitely be back in the future!
