“What a great place to stay”
Reviewed January 28, 2011

We stayed for 2 nights, and this was a great place to stay, close to everything.
We found the staff to be very helpful and nothing was a problem. The breakfasts were fantastic!
We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

I stayed here for six weeks and was very impressed with the treatment I received, I was picked up at the airport, I was in the cheaper flat beside the main motel and it was clean and tidy, it is obviously a place best suited for longer term clients and was ideal for me.
Ron and Murial were welcoming and went out of their way to be helpful to me, they offered me rides to the supermarket and to and from work each day.

We had multiple stays in Nov. When they figured out what our specific needs were, they went out of their way to meet and exceed them. And went our of their way for special requests.

One thing that particularly stands out is their wireless internet service. Hotels in New Zealand and Australia have found a way to gouge customers with this, but not 540 South. The charges I accumulated over about 6 days stay were less than I have paid in a single day with the competition.

Ample parking... other hotels in the AKL area seem to rent out parking to air travellers. Money for the hotel, hassle for the guests. Not 540 South.

We booked our room last minute, we had a seven hour stop over in Auckland before heading to our final destination Wellington, we were coming off a long international flight. When we booked we ordered a free transfer to pick us up from the airport at 1am and take us back for 7:30am. The transfer was prompt the driver gave is the keys to our room also it was great we had no waiting time. The heater was even on in the room too which was a nice touch. The room itself was large, clean and very tidy. The bed was very comfortable the shower was great also. I would recommend a stay here.

The room we stayed in was nicely furnished, very clean and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was tasty & still lovely & warm when delivered to our room..even the toast was wrapped so it retained warmth. Recommend ordering the scrambled egg & bacon! The biggest plus was the friendly helpful service provided by the hosts.
My only negatives were I was a little concerned about the security of our car (unnecessary worry) andthere was a lot of noisy vehicles passing as it was a Friday night
