Came here after the hotel we had booked had double booked us. It was 9pm we were very tired and drove around trying to find a room. Luckily we found one here. Very friendly and very clean. Had everything we needed. We were expecting a 5* hotel that night but ended up in a motel but we were perfectly happy.

We booked in February this year a three bedroom apt for our family for four nights while we were attending our sons wedding. When we arrived our room had been given to other people and we were told we had been put into two bedrooms individual bedrooms which did not suit our purpose. We tried for the first night but...

Drove up to this place as we were look for a hotel on a busy night, checked in with no expectations. This place is great specifically if you have a large family with kids. The pool and hot spa was really nice even though the weather was not great , still the kids had great fun. Rooms were well maintained... More

We only stayed one night. It was a lovely quiet motel, walking distance from the restaurant strip in Hurstmere Road. However the shower was unmanageable, with temperature control crazy and the shower head faced the door! We did have a manic above us fiddling with a power socket about 3am sounding like a mouse in the wall! Please have a... More

Good option if you are staying in Takapuna rooms are reasonably spacious with a good kitchen, tv and comfortable bed. On a cold winters night we were warm and cosy with the heater. Unlimited wifi was a bonus too.

Stayed here for the first time and was much better than expected. The reception staff was excellent and very helpful, the room we stayed in had a lovely poolside view. Another plus point for us was the fact that bus stop was across the road and was a big help as we did not hire a car for our tri.

We were upgraded which was great. Accommodation very clean and tidy. We felt that the accommodation was average very central. Our unit needed some TLC furniture was very tired and not all of the windows were able to be shut securely as latches were missing. The lady who greeted us on arrival was lovely and very friendly.

Checked in for 2 nights over the weekend. Complimentary Milk and unlimited free WiFi was excellent. Rooms were spotless and customer service was top notch. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a all rounder accommodation in Takapuna.

Not a great Motor Lodge. We had only booked in for one night and that was lucky! Although the room was clean and the beds were comfortable, we were disappointed that the electric jug did not work and, for the life of me, the only cutlery I could find in the room was cooking utensils. There was no knives, forks... More

We booked a studio. The main room was a good size and very clean, as was the bathroom. The kitchenette had microwave, 2 burners, fridge, toaster & crockery, utensils, cutlery for 3 people. Adequate cooking pots. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Altogether a very good experience.
