This place is easily accessible from Highway 1 both north and south. Entrance into the premises is a bit of a trick as you have to cut across on-coming traffic and drive up a steep incline. It is close enough that you can walk (15-20 minutes) to the bus and train terminals at Manukau City Central and it is also within easy driving of the airport. Upon checking in the lady on reception dealt with our booking very effectively and she was also very helpful with local information (management at other motels we'd stayed at on our 9 day visit were not so informed). Upon entering the room we noted that the kitchenette and bedroom were all clean and fresh smelling. The kitchenette was adequately self-contained with enough cooking facilities to prepare basic meals. The beds had fresh clean sheets on comfortable mattresses. The bathroom was a bit dated but was fresh and clean. We had a ground floor room and there was a bit of foot traffic noise from the room above but this didn't impact on us too seriously. The cleaning staff were friendly and left clean bath towels each day. There was free Wi-Fi which was a bonus as other motels wanted to charge quite highly for this. There is adequate on-site car parking. Even though the motel is close to the highway and also on a major road there was no obvious traffic noise. Like-wise there was no aircraft noise even though the motel is close to the airport. It suited our purpose and offered value for money.
