Very friendly staff. Went out of their way to help me get information for our trip. Very good plunger coffee. Wish they had free wifi...drove 5 minutes down the road to McDonalds to use their wifi instead. Small, but good kitchen facilities. Didn't use the stovetop, but the microwave, refrigerator and sink came in handy. Appreciated the laundry facilities. Nice, comfortable beds. My whole family liked this hotel and would definitely stay again.

Chosen for value, location and parking availability. Recently refurbished; I suspect it may have been tired before, but was definitely fresh and a pleasure to stay there. The bed was new, firm, large and comfortable.

When I said we were going out to the gay bars on K Road, the receptionist probably shouldn't have suggested we were off to 'fag it up'! Not really a problem!

A bit of a stroll to K Road and the CBD, half an hour or so, but doable for us. There are apparently several good eateries nearby.

We stayed for two nights in a very comfortable room. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had breakfast and dinner in the restaurant - good value meals. The hotel is situated within walking distance of the CBD which was preferable to taking the car into the city and trying to find parking spaces.

Parnell is a lovely part of Auckland and was preferable to us with a small child for just one night than the central city. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the Parnell village and the city itself. We enquired about the room we had booked not having enough space to fit a cot at the side of 2 king side beds and we were able to move to a room with a different layout to give us more space.

The service I couldn't fault and the refurbishment has been well executed in the living and bedroom area to make it comfortable but the kitchen and bathroom still look like an old motel that is a bit lost in time. There were windows high up towards the roof that were permanently open that faced the access path to all rooms and even though we were at the end it was still noisy. Just a few design flaws which I can't see being rectified anytime soon as they are structural.

Room Tip: End of the access walkway i.e. 12-15 on each level i.e. 112-115, 212-215.

We needed two nights accommodation for three adults, so we chose one of the one bedroom motel units. When we arrived, we found that they had upgraded us to a two bedroom unit at no extra charge - a good start! The receptionists were welcoming and helpful. Our unit was clean and comfortable with excellent beds. Although we ate in the evenings, we had two excellent breakfasts. This hotel is close to the city and the waterfront, simply drive down Gladstone Road and you are virtually there! We will have no hesitation in staying there again.

We stayed 3 nights for visited friends, the room is clean and tidy. You can find nice cafe and restaurant by 2 mins drive in Parnell, and 10 mins drive to Mission Bay and city. I gave 5 stars with this valuabe price. One disappointed thing there are no lift which I had to carry the luggage upstairs to third level.
