The lodge is incredibly dated, which we could deal with. But then we saw the stains, grotty marks & total lack of hygiene! We did not want to touch anything or stay in that room 1 minute longer than necessary!

This has to be the worst place I have ever stayed at. It was so bad when we were shown into our room it smelt dirty and looked and smelt like a men's boarding house we just wanted to leave but I had already paid online that afternoon and couldn't afford to loose the money. We were afraid to walk... More

I am checking out after staying for just one night.There are spiders in every corner of the room. The bathroom light did not work. The first room I was offered had no windows and smelled bad. The sink in the bathroom has no pull for the plug so once it was down I could not unplug the sink, so it... More

The room was very very basic and not clean. The bed was very uncomfortable and smelled of sweat. The receptionist wasn't friendly at all. A truly awful stay. The only recommendation is it's in a good location.

Holes in the wall, trash everywhere, smoke alarm not in place- when asked if it could be replaced the manager said the guest before had probably taken it. We walked I to the room and saw the condition and asked for a refund without staying there. We were not given a refund. This is absolutely Terrible accommodation at any price.

Stayed one night last weekend to move my daughter into the halls of Residence for AUT. Choose this as it was close to Auckland CDB and easy to get to the Halls. Management was not there when I was trying to book in; had to find them by asking other guests if they knew where the Manager might be. Took... More

Cheap place yes. Old place yes. Dirty very much yes (we went and bought towels as the ones there were disgusting). There seems to be rubbish everywhere, duvets had stains, dust everywhere, just really filthy and old and rank. Would have left immediately but no other accomodation available.

The single bed room I was staying at was so mismatched, old and needed complete makeover. Since this was an alternative arrangement for me (since I had a bad experience with another property) I had agreed to this without looking it up online or reading reviews. But at least they had an availability during the busy holiday period (Dec 2015).... More

The room and bathroom (even after requested re-clean) were dirty and smelly. Manager unfriendly and abusive. Left without using the room - loosing my payment for 2 nights accommodation. Do not believe the photos you see on the internet to avoid disappointment.

This property is in a great location, but unfortunately needs a complete makeover. The room had mismatched furniture, tired and dirty linen and appliances. The main bed was a rolly foldaway bed with nylon sheets. The hand basin in the toilet was just that, small enough to get a hand in. Was woken at 3am by a car alarm, 4am... More
