Hotel Auckland

We arrive in Auckland Int. Airport at 4.30pm and will be driving to the Bay of Islands next morning(this is March 2007). We need a reasonable priced motel or B & B for one night away from the airport and in the general direction of the Bay of Islands...need to avoid morning rush travel.

Any ideas?

Thanks Boondy

If you are happy to away from Auckland City, then I would suggest either Orewa or Warkworth.

Orewa is about 30 minutes north of Auckland City (1 hour from the airport)

The place in the link below will be nothing too flash but very resonably priced

Orewa has a great beach and lots of restaurants

Warkworth is about an hour north of Auckland City (1.5 hours from the airport)

If you end up in this area, then try Jacaranda House in Sandspit, a small seaside village near Warkworth

Or if you wanted to drive a bit further, you could end up in Whangarei (about 3 hours north of Auckland airport)

You need to bear in mind that when you arrive (4.30pm), you will probably end up leaving the airport at about 5.30-6pm, which means you might hit the tail end of evening rush hour coming through Auckland.

Nothing much you can do about that though.....
