Stayed here for a night during the Covi Show, only a couple of KM from the location. This accommodation was only a minute from the local bottle-o, 4 minutes walk from the local Countdown and McDonalds - with many cafes and restaurants nearby. Reception was very welcoming and polite, providing quick and efficient service. The room was amazing, perfectly made beds with white-fresh linen, fully-stocked kitchenette with Sky-TV, more storage than you would need, air-conditioning and complimentary visitor-guides and even a Gideon Bible! The bathroom was a little outdated and could do with some TLC, but served our purposes perfectly and was kept to a hospital-grade of cleanliness. Free WiFi was definitely a bonus and our room had access to a personal-patio. Only improvements I would add would be adding a wall or segmentation between each room's patio for privacy, replacing the door handles (a little tired) and maybe installing an extractor fan in the shower. Otherwise, the staff were amazing and allowed us to check-out later than usual (without even having to ask). I would highly recommend this place for a comfortable, quiet and affordable stay - definitely would stay again.…
Clean, central older style accomodation walking distance to some great local restaurants. Supermarket also a short walk. Very quiet despite being on a main road. Unit 12 I stayed in was at the back. Nonetheless the facility is set somewhat down and away from traffic noise. Beds and pillows were fine. Good affordable option. Will stay again no question.
Rooms are spacious, clean very comfortable for a over night stay.There is a delightful cafe close by . Definitely will stay again ,only grizzle is the top level rooms have a step staircase ,but easily fixed by asking for ground floor room.Parking is great as located right outside rooms .
Used this motel for the day arriving into New Zealand and the night before leaving, only 20 minutes drive from Auckland Airport, so great location as didn't want to go to Auckland centre. Lovely big room, which was immaculately clean. Great café 2 minutes walk away for breakfast. Only downside was bathroom needed some modernisation, but it was clean and functional.
Our room was spacious and clean but toilet cum shower room was a problem. The door to it could not be opened from inside and difficult to open from outside. Moreover, the gradient of the floor was all wrong. The far end from the shower as well as the floor around the toilet bowl were lower than the shower area. So water flowed to these 2 areas and could not be drained. It is supposed to be a 4-star hotel but there was no room safe.
Fantastic service, massive room and made to feel welcome. This motel is central to local shops fabulous cafes and best of all a Jaguar show room, a must see. The only thing stopping this motel from being a four star property is some much needed TLC. Even though my room was clean and well presented there was a spare bed held up against a wall, I hadn’t requested this and it shouldn’t have been in the room. That said it was bright light and breezy. Awesome outdoor patio which the outdoor furniture really needed to be replaced. Maybe because it’s mainly business people who only stay once, but here’s the thing wouldn’t you also want repeat and word of mouth business. My bed was very comfortable I had a great nights sleep. Black our curtains were just that pure black out. If you are looking for a spacious room and bathroom, ask for room 18. Plus I think it was a disabled room as it had low sinks and handle bars, so excellent for this motel getting that right. My stay was pleasant. …
Stayed in the lodge when in Auckland. Room was clean and comfortable. Near Supermarket (Countdown) and MacDonald. Breakfast was served at a nearby cafe (within a short walking distance) and a few choices (decent breakfast). Car was park in front of the unit which was convenient for those with luggage.
Room was spacious and clean, bed comfortable and nice shower. Although on a main road, we didn't really hear the traffic. Motel is close by to ASB showgrounds where we were heading. Also coffee shop and bus stop is very close by and supermarket about 300m down the road. Very handy for where we wanted to go. We would stay here again.
From reception welcome to departure this lovely place is perfect for an Auckland stay. Nice outdoor courtyard. Clean rooms! Bathroom a wee bit dated but shower and bath clean and tidy. Will stay here again for sure.
Unit was clean and staff were friendly, we arrived late in the afternoon and receptionist is accomodating explaining things why he ask for my card, weird because I already paid online but he did explain for verification purposes. Anyway overall experience was great
