We had great service, dropping us up at the airport, looking after our car then picking us up when we got back. What was disappointing was the 9:00am knock on the door by the cleaners asking us when we are leaving (10:00am checkout!) not impressed as we had arrived late and wanted as much sleep as we could get. The... More

Booked room via Travelbug which advised of 24hr wait for confirmation. I needed immediate confirmation as I was about to leave for Auckland (a 4hr drive). So I rang Airport Gold Star and explained that I needed confirmation by phone as I had a long trip ahead, could not wait for the written confirmation, and did not have money to... More

Bathroom not clean, jug did not work, toaster dirty, plug on oven did not work, oven door would not close, one power outlet dangerous as it came out when a plug was removed, large spider and cobwebs in lounge which had obviously been there a while, glass coffee table unsafe, not enough crockery for three people. Would definitely not stay... More

What an awful place to stay. It is so old and dated. We paid $190 and felt very ripped off, only worth 1/2 that price. The set up in the kitchen was terrible. The oven was so old and greeted you as you walked directly in the door and the microwave sat on a make shift bench straight opposite the... More

We arrived late after a long flight and needed accommodation near the airport at short notice. With free wifi, free airport shuttle and close proximity to the airport, this motel was convenient for us. The room was basic and the shower and kitchen need updating, but it was affordable, very quiet, and we managed to get a good night's sleep!

I really want to say nice things about this motel as the service was very good. Unfortunately the room was not very clean and very basic. The only ensure was dirty and had no tray or dish to cook in, the tiling in the bathroom was just yuck, and the windows were very dirty. It was a cheap place to... More

Old 80's style motel a little rough around the edges but price reflects what you get. Great location handy to Auckland Airport. Ideal for that short stay. Plenty of parking and surprisingly quiet for its busy road location. The units are clean and warm and the bed comfortable enough. Yes its a bit tired and the fittings cheap, but price... More

We travelled as a family, me, my son and his two sons, 10 and 12. I booked a Family unit, which consisted of two twin rooms and a double bed in the main room. We arrived about 7pm and left the next morning at 6.30am. It was perfect for that amount of time. The features in the unit are old... More

This motel is another hidden comfort. The room was large, good kitchenette and reasonably well stocked. Quiet and very clean. The staff are pleasant and nothing was an effort for them, not even getting us to the airport at 3:30am. Well done would stay again.
