“Can't fault it”
Reviewed April 17, 2011

Second time we've stayed here - and I can think of no other accommodations we've ever stayed in twice, which indicates how happy we were with Walmsley Lodge. The first time we stayed we loved the B & B part of the complex, but as we were staying with a 3rd party this last time, we had to take a motel unit which we were most impressed with - spacious, light and clean, with tons of room for the 3 of us. Mike transferred us both ways from the airport and stored our car on the property while we were in Australia, so we had no worries about our vehicle at all. Mike is affable and helpful and nothing seems too much trouble; we'd definitely stay there again.

In September 2010 my husband I enjoyed a return visit to Walmsley Lodge - our 4th in the last couple of years - as it would not occur to us to stay anywhere else when using Auckland airport (7 minutes to airport - 25 minutes to Auckland City) having found this gem! The hospitality is excellent - the units have extremely well appointed kitchen areas and the units are spacious and comfortable with a great cooked breakfast delivered to our unit. An Auckland airport shuttle is always available - with a smile - even at 2:00 a.m. Our hosts, Mike and Lianne treat us like old friends and always go the extra mile. We recommend Walmsley Lodge without reservation.

We stayed two nights on arrival in auckland. We chose the Walmsley Lodge because it had 1 bed appartments so we could be awake at night without disturbing others!! We know about jet lag after flying from the UK !!
Mike met us at the airport which was fabulous as we did not need to find a bus or taxi.
The place was spacious and clean.
Breakfast was delivered to our door at the time we requested and we can only say that we found the welcome warm and friendly.

Auckland was our stop-over on our way up north and Walmsley Lodge was a delightful find. Although we arrived quite late at night, the proprietors were accommodating and friendly.

Our room was spacious, clean and fresh. The bedroom was separate, tastefully furnished and very comfortable. Loved the newly refurbished bathroom, with its dispensers and modern decor too.

A lovely home-cooked breakfast was brought to our room in the morning, inclusive with the room rate - real butter, eggs and bacon with tasty sweet tomatoes - just what you need to refuel for the day ahead!

Although Walmsley Lodge is situated on a busy road, the rooms were surprisingly quiet and our vehicle (and our building) secure within the grounds.

All in all a great place to stay.
