The Poenamo hotel is a small friendly establishment with lovely members of staff. If you are traveling as a family this is not the place for you but more a place to crash on a lads weekend. The rooms look out onto a small swimming pool. But do not be fooled as on the other side of that is a...

Checked in and got great service at the front- first room was over sanitized so the clerk was happy to move us to a new room which was much better. Clean but linens and carpets were a bit worn out. Location is easy drive to Auckland- without a car this would probably be a poor location for seeing the sights

Good Spot close to where i needed to be. Comfy beds and close to plenty of ammenities, such as takeaway shops, burger king, liquour shop. has a pub next door which does good food. Can be a wee bit rowdy in your room if people are at the pub next door late but nothing dramatic. Friendly staff too.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Check in was quick and staff friendly. Location was good and close enough to the city. Beds were comfortable and the room was clean. Certain other guests were questionable and made 1 night in particular uneasy. Although it isn't a flash establishment, we were provided all of the required amenities and found all staff lovely.

This place was very easy to find, on the main road and next to the Takapuna Golf Club. Although the place is dated and a little dirty, the rooms were well appointed. We did have a small issue with ant's, but nothing major. The staff were very friendly and easy to work with. The venue has a pleasant pub/bar in...

Look we have stayed here a couple of times and never once were we unhappy with the service we received. From the pool side room to the number of restaurants within your reach - literally, to the playground for the kids while you injoy either a swim or a nice cold one 🍺. I find this place had its own...

15 min drive from Auckland CBD, we got an ensuite room with one double bed, one single bed, shower, pantry and balcony. Plenty of space for 3 person in one room. Restaurant, bars, fast food chain (Mc.D, Burger King) and bottle shop just next to the hotel.

This used to be our summer go to - first time here in a while and super disappointed at the food and wine prices - half the size they used to be and double the price - I believe it's under new ownership now. What a shame. $10 for chips in picture and $17.50 for half a plate of wedges...

Stayed here to be handy to family. The hotel is basic and simple. On a Thursday night the music from the bar went into the early hours and beyond. Our stay here did the job, but it's not inviting at all.

When we checked in we were advised there was no hot water and they were working on it. We could have used a local holiday park if WE paid for it. Next morning STILL no hot water. No discount. HOPELESS.
