A great motel situated in an ideal place for getting around Auckland either by public transport or private car. The host was always very obliging and helpful and the cleaning staff were unobtrusive and thorough. Our unit was quiet and warm ( thanks for the heater) with a full kitchen and separate bedroom. An ideal home away from home. A... More

I booked a one bedroom room which was lovely and large with a good size kitchen, great bathroom, comfortable bed and large room. It feels more like a 1 bedroom apartment than a 1 bedroom hotel room. The hotel is close to the motorway, a short drive to downtown Auckland and to anywhere on the North Shore. It's also close... More

This was a clean and comfortable motel with free wifi and very friendly staff. The room had microwave and small stove top with saucepans and toaster so we could have our eggs on toast for brekky. If you have mobility issues I don't think there are any rooms down stairs so best to check with owner as we were on... More

A short drive to Auckland city & north shore. Vety close to motorway entry & exit. No restaurant on site but allows charge back to your room from local restaurants. Try Divino pizza around the corner.

Fantastic location, well appointed rooms, extremely clean & tidy, friendly accommodating staff everything you could need & want. We only stayed 1 night but would definitely stay again & highly recommend to others. Cost effective for location too. Awesome spa bath. We couldn't fault this place.

Stayed 6 nights settling our son into relocated life for Uni, flat ting and sport. Ideal location for us. Facilities spotlessly clean and staff friendly and helpful. Free wifi would have been an added bonus but would definitely return to stay here again.

Very noisy fridge at night, turn it off. The room looked a lot bigger on-line so I wish we had looked before paying. No microwave, cooking equipment, utensils or plates, also you couldn't cook anything. If you needed to wash your cups you had to do so in the bathroom. (yuk). The room was so tight and small we spent... More
