“Good Option for AKL Stopover”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

I have stayed at this hotel on and off for over 20 years. In that time it has changed little, which is not necessarily a bad thing. It is comfortable and clean, with most of the accoutrements one would expect in a 2.5 star hotel (which is what it really is). Breakfast is very basic, so don't expect too much.

Other than that, the free pick up and return to airport is good, and there is a bus stop across the road for a trip into the city should you be so inclined. There is also a shopping centre (Mangere) about 20 minutes walk away, with supermarkets, banks, grog shops, and the like. So not a bad location for a stopover.

Would I stay there again? I already have a booking.

Room Tip: Make sure you take plenty of mosquito repellent or you will be eaten alive. How do I know? I still...

This airport area motel is a cheap option for a day stay whilst waiting to fly out, or as in my case after a very late arrival. I arrived circa midnight, was picked up promptly, free 24 hrs shuttle. The rooms are dated but reasonably clean and comfortable, very well priced for a one night stay.
The restaurant area is fairly dismal, but ok for a breakfast snack, staff a bit surly, but helpful with requests. Overall the decor is reasonable, carpets need replacing thruout, but you get value fot the small amount charged.

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to recption, as its a long trudge with luggage to some rooms.

My husband and I stayed here before catching an early morning flight. It was okay, but I think there are nicer places to stay closer to the airport. It is quite dated and the facilities were very basic.

Stayed here for a night to watch the football in Auckland. The hotel is showing its age but was well suited to me for the one night as it was very handy to Mt. Smart. The room whilst dated appeared clean and tidy and was also quiet. Well priced and would stay again.

We only stayed here one night as we had a midnight arrival & just wanted somewhere close to the airport.
There is a courtesy phone in the arrivals area (note-go left when you come out of the arrivals area at Auckland Apt as we went the wrong way & it took us a while to find it) & they advised over the phone which door their courtesy van would collect us from.
Check-in was quick which is great considering there were a few people checking in & it was after midnight.
The rooms were basic, & yes they could do with a little spruce-up, but they were clean & for what we were paying for the one night, which included a continental breakfast, it was good value.
Breakfast was buffet style including toast, cereal & one choice of fruit, tea/coffee & fine for a quick bite to eat before heading off.
It was a little noisy from the road traffic but I think you would get that from the majority of the Airport hotels/motels unless they double-glazed their windows. Overall, it was well priced for the standard of property.

I stayed at airport gateway hotel from Jan 30th 2012 to FEb 6th 2012. I liked this hotel -staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are nice and room rates are very competitive and there is lots of place to park one's car. Also the airport shuttle was great and very convenient
Well Done

I book this hotel simply because of the fact that they had spa on site as advertised. I call 2 hours before arriving to make sure their spa are in service, at the time they confirm it was. I only learned that it wasn't and was faulty after I arrives, why was I not inform straight away? Online booking has my contact detail. I was also being told that if I need to use the spa there is additional fee to be paid, why isn't this being advertised clearly on your ad? To me this is misleading. Not impressed!
