We stayed here for 3 nights, rooms 15 & 16. The rooms are large and cleaned daily. Its more like a studio apartment with the kitchenette and balcony. From the outside it does look old, but the inside is great. If you have an outgoing friendly and community oriented personality you will love this place. THere is also a little... More

Yes it's passed its hey day and some investment good make a world of difference. However, fantastically located to motorway, restaurants and the North Shore. And the staff were some of the nicest I have liaised with The pricing reflects its tiredness.

Over the last few months I've stayed at the Poenamo Hotel a number of times. The rooms aren't flash, but are generally a good size and clean. There are lots of eating options a walk away, and the service from the hotel staff is always excellent.

The view of the reception from the road is appealing and the receptionist was wonderful, extremely friendly and accommodating. Our room backed onto the carpark and the lock did not feel all that secure from the rowdy public, in the carpark right next door. If you are on a budget the room had everything required to stay the night and... More

We were visiting Auckland for scheduled appts In Glenfield, with three young boys and were able to book the Jade Room. The room was well presented, airy and clean. Only drawback was lack of bed side light which was remedied and no Spoons for cereal (which was also remedied) - the large kitchen was fantastic - everything we needed, easy... More

We had booked this online and when we arrived and looked at the rooms from the outside we couldn't help but feel a little disappointed. We were pleasantly greeted by the receptionist who advised us our room wasn't ready as the people before us had checked out late however she quickly swapped us with another room that was ready.

It was very convenient for me because of its location. Room stank of some cleaning product. It was cold with the window wide open after dark when I checked in Door lock and corridor did not feel at all secure. Plenty of eateries around for dinner or breakfast.

We were heading up to Whangarei for lunch (as you do) and wanted to be on the North Shore side of the bridge. The Poenamo Hotel was a perfect location for us. It is just off the motorway and getting back on it in the morning couldn't have been easier. The guy at reception was really helpful and friendly. The... More

The reason that I've picked this motel for my friend to stay in is because of its location. Its a pretty old accommodate with a pretty new entrance. The Wi-Fi is slow. Noice is a problem too. We are lucky to have a room upstairs that you can have a good view on the corridor. But walking up the stairs... More
