Bit late writing this review, my husband and i spent 6 nights at the Touchwood in November 2011 part of a 3 week trip around both islands. This was the one place that we did not expect much from, it was just somewhere to sleep, as we had a friend at Papakura and knew we would spend most of our time there. When we booked in and were shown to our room, we were amazed it was a mini apartment not just a room. What a brilliant surprize. The owners were extremely helpful, helping us with directions and train timetables etc. If we are ever fortunate to visit a lovely country again, we would not hesitate to return

Just spent 12 days in New Zealand car racing at Hampton Downs. We stayed at Touchwood. Had a great time. The owners were extremely freindly and helpful. Great spring board to the surrounding areas. Hampton Downs is just 20 minutes away. Auckland 40mins. Played golf and other adventures all nearby. Neil made us Aussies feel really at home on Australia day too. Many thanks Jervis

The accomodation was very comfortable and tidy, which is great. But even more happy made us the warm welcome and the readiness and kindness to help us planning of our tour, which we found exeptional. Thank you,if ever we are in the region again we'll be back at the best motel ever. :-)

We stayed there for two nights during a photographic conference.
Our unit was impeccably clean, well equipped, well lit and comfortable. Neil was welcoming and helpful, and the value for money was excellent.

Room Tip: These are all ground floor units and some are nearer to road noise than others, but we were lucky.

Neil (aka Graham Henry lookalike) and Dilys were fantastic hosts during our stay. We stayed at the Touchwood for around 5 days (with a break in between) during the Rugby World Cup (12 people and 1 2yr old). The apartments are clean, well appointed and suited our needs perfectly - we were never wanting for anything and the facilities were more than adequate. Neil and Dilys made the stay very enjoyable and happy to banter with a cople of the cheeky Aussies we had on tour. They went out of their way to organise transport info into Auckland for the Rugby and look after any little request we had (like providing a cot for the 2 yr old). I have no hesitation in recommending Touchwood and Neil and Dilys to anyone wishing to travel and also recommend a stop in Pukekohe for something different and a real piece of kiwi hospitality!
