    The motel was very clean, safe parking, although a little noisy due to proximity of main road.

    Sofa bed a little uncomfortable, the web site did say there was a bbq avaliable but when I asked there was not one.

    Completely in the city outer, but very peaceful and pleasant, loved the people there for their hospitality.

    Great free parking,staff helpful and nice

    Didnt like stains on bed cover and couch. Need better lighting had trouble reading paper. Heating was with small heater. Tap over sink leaked.

    We checked in late, checked out very early and did not use any of the facilities. There is a kitchenette which we didn't use. This motel is convenient to the airport and the owner was very accomodating, offered to take us at 4:30 am for our flight.

    Would have liked better pillows! Located in a business area outside the city but very close to the airport.

    Awesome location and the staff were friendly and very helpful. I would definitely go back.

    Well-appointed room. Spotless. Very friendly and helpful Aussie welcome. Informal! Convenient location Auckland airport.

    Very soft bouncy bed! Location convenient airport but otherwise unattractive.

    It was a modern buildig with off street parking

    Air conditioning in the rooms and a digital tv

    The owner is very friendly and helpful. He picked me up at the airport and dropped me off at the train station on my last morning there.

  • Couple
    6.6

    The host was really nice and helpful, as usual. Clean bathroom and towels. Modern rooms. Quiet at night.

    Our second time there in 2 months, but wasn't very impressed this time. When we got into the room, we could hear everything the man next door was saying... he was probably on the phone, and talked for hours. Even though I wasn't interested in his conversation, I could hear everything. No sound isolation whatsoever in the rooms, but I guess that's the main problem in NZ motels anyway... The TV had really bad reception for all channels, even TV1, 2 and 3. Our first time there was awesome, but can't say the same this time. Pity!

  • Older travelers

    The manager was friendly and helpful and the facilities were good.

    No air conditioning in the room which was uncomfortable. On the whole the room was clean, but they could have done with moving the bed and cleaning behind it.

  • Couple
    7.8

    We only spent a night to pick someone up at the airport, but the owner was great, very helpful and friendly (even though it was almost 10pm) and the room was really good, spacious and comfortable.

    Maybe a bigger heater would be good. It was ok for us, but I believe that colder nights would deserve a more effective heater...

  • Family with children

    clean rooms, comfortable, and friendly service

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    I liked the atmosphere and decor of the motel . All round a good stay good security, nice facilities. 4 stars :)

    The beds were a bit firm for my liking and there were not enough blankets to suffice for the winter. Staff were not very helpful when I asked for directions. Shower tap was opposite for temperatures and led to confusion (lol) .

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Staff very helpful. Easy to get into Auckland by bus. Easy to get to airport. On a busy main road but our room was very quiet. Plan to stay again

  • Family with children

    Very clean don't judge the outside well set up inside. Helpful staff.
