I stayed here due to my flight into Auckland not arriving until late at night and not being able to check into my city accommodation until the next morning.
For the price I paid I cannot complain about what I got. The room was clean and in a very good condition. The bed was very comfortable (especially after 24 hours of flying) and the bathroom had a good quality shower.
The free shuttle from the airport was pointed out to me by a friendly taxi driver at the airport (who in all honesty could have made a quick buck from driving me to the hotel) and it is a very obvious bus as it's bright yellow and has the hotel logo on it.
The reception staff were very friendly and answered any questions I had.
My only regret is that I did pay for breakfast here and, whilst there was nothing wrong with the food provided, I'm not sure it can justify the price. There is a 24 hour supermarket, several cafes and a bakery within a 5 minute walk of the hotel so save your money and pick something up from one of these.
Also be aware that the vending machines in the lobby require a credit card to make a purchase.
As an aside, I had a room facing away from the airport and as I woke up early I was treated to a stunning sunrise!
If I have another late arrival/early departure from Auckland Airport I will be staying here again.
