Stayed here, arranged and paid for by airline, when flight to Wellington was rerouted to Auckland due to weather. Put me in a room with a queen bed and two twins—relatively large room. Seems well kept, but the age of the hotel is evident. Room is keyed with metal keys. No chain on door. Main road just outside the window,... More

We loved staying at this Motel. Staff were friendly and helpful, and was nice to be greeted by somebody who appeared to be a long term NZ'er. No communication issues. Our room was clean and well appointed. No problems with noise from neighbouring units. Will certainly stay here again.

I have just arrived back in Australia, having been on a cruise around New Zealand when my mother became ill and needed to be hospitalised in Tauranga. As we were unable to continue with the cruise as planned, we needed to arrange flights back to Australia, which also involved arranging accommodation in Auckland. Below is an email I sent to...

I really have mixed feeling about this place. The rooms were tidy, the bathroom was alright, no air-conditioning, which.... I'm torn, even as I write this to settle on a 2 or 3 rating, but I digress. I the was supposed to be a nice get-away, but for the cost, it was just lacking. You have to sleep with the... More

I chose this motel to be near the hospital, which was 5 minutes drive away. I cannot think of much else that's positive. At the time it was very expensive for the tired and basic facilities that it offered. I could not find any interesting restaurants nearby and ended up at Burger King (there are several fast food places).

I had an unexpected stay over in Auckland following a horrific experience with Jetstar (save yourselves the hassle) and was booked into here overnight. Lovely man at the front desk really put me at ease and even gave me some food for me to have in the morning as the kitchen wouldn't have been open at the time I needed... More

As alot of places in Auckland were fully booked and due to last minute flight cancellations by our airline, this place was the only one available for us but I wouldn't stay here again during the Summer. There is no aircon and only one fan available to cater for people who slept in the lounge room and in the bedroom.... More

I stayed here for 2 nights in February on business. Seems Auckland was very busy as most CBD hotels were way overpriced. I didn't need to be in the city so this was a good option. Its easy to get to, has off-street parking with comfortable rooms. Despite no a/c in the rooms, I found the supplied fan sufficient -... More

Spent a couple of nights there in January before my onward trip to Thailand. Just bout right for what I needed. Room was comfy although was located next to the main road and there seems to be an ambulance station nearby so there was more than the fair share of emergency sirens. Good room facilities with fridge etc. All round... More

I am writing this review while I lay awake on the 4th night of my stay. Each of the 4 nights had been fairly sleepless. My room is hot and has no air con. I cant open the windows because of the noise from the road. The bed is hard and uncomfortable. Each time someone walks past my room it... More
