Heartland Hotel Auckland Airport
Ranked #4 of 23 Hotels in Mangere
Reviewed March 3, 2013

We used this hotel as it was close to the airport and had a free shuttle. The on site airport hotel was about $229 for a room where this one was $99. The lobby was extremely nice, and had an excellent bar and food area to get something to eat. In our case we had a 6:00am international flight, so we asked for a 3:00am shuttle to the airport. They were ready and we left on time.

The room we had included a double and a twin. Beds were really basic, but bathroom and room was clean. TV was great with movies to kill time. All in all, good value for what we needed.

Stayed: March 2013, traveled with family

We booked the Bella Vista Express for one night between flying in from the South Island and our international departure the next day. They have a convenient airport shuttle and very comfortable rooms. Getting to where the shuttle can pick you up can be confusing and troublesome if you have very much luggage, but that is an Auckland Airport issue and not the fault of the hotel. We booked one of the standard suite rooms with continental breakfast included at a very reasonable rate. We would be happy to stay here again.

Never had a bad experience in New Zealand but they were very helpful when there was a problem with my rental car. The bathroom stock did not justify the very good and spacey bed- and bathroom, there is room for improvement.

With just an overnight in Auckland, the Bella Vista Express was a perfect choice. They provide a free shuttle service to/from the airport. The price was right! Rooms were modern, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom is basically stocked. People at the reception were very welcoming. Breakfast was reasonably price, and you could choose either a hot or cold menu.

If you are looking for a nice budget airport hotel this is the hotel to stay at. We stayed here as well 2 years ago and it was just a good again as we remembered. Nice big rooms and very good service / hospitality. Comfy bed, good bathroom... all you need for just a night sleep before you leave the country. Airport shuttle is free ( as well as parking ) and well arranged.
- Wifi free 30 minutes per day in the lobby area.

This is an excellent venue and so close to the airport which saves a lot of time and hassle, expecially when we were staying only 1 night. Wonderful complementary pick-up service from our late flight in and also early trip out to airport next morning. Early wake-up call and transport to/from airport absolutely no bother to staff. Very good, prompt and efficient check-in. Very high service level. Good sized room, clean and tidy and we found it comfortable. Thoroughly recommended. Reasonable tariff. (We didn't sample the food as our flight times didn't allow for that). Thoroughly recommended.

We stayed there on feb 13 and going back again on feb 20th - its a good location close to airport, and perfect for a short stay. They were also very nice in keeping 2 of our luggage for a week while we went to south island. They also arranged a cab to downtown (about $35 nz $ and cash only) - so that can add up if you plan for stay for more than a day. Also free shuttle to airport is a nice feature. Pool is also a nice feature for the kids
If you plan on staying in auckland for more than a night i would live somewhere close to auckland downtown.
