The rooms and off the road so reasonably quiet. They are simply appointed but have all the necessary things - TV, microwave (no hobs), sink, seperate bathroom. It is a little dated but great for an overnight stay with parking outside your room.More

I spent 3 nights here and really enjoyed my stay. I was given a free room upgrade without asking and room was great. My room could sleep 4 easily and had ample room. Will definitely be back when I'm next in town

This is a very quiet, comfortable motel. It is very well appointed with modern, comfortable furnishings - I particularly liked the chair in the bedroom! All the appliances were in tip top order. The hostess was very welcoming and obliging. The only drawback is that...More

Thanks 2kiwis_11, we are pleased that you were comfortable. Having lived in Auckland, we think a 2 to 3 minute drive to the CBD is close to town and tend to forget that others have a different perspective on distance!
