The Hotel is situated close to the Airport so it is very conveniant and it doesnt take long to reach the city centre. The staff are very friendly and cannot do enough for you. Its close to the anartcic centre which is a must see for everyone.The staff told us to do a bus tour which was just awesome.

Nice room, clean, and the bed comfortable. The staff lady was very nice. The only downfall was the road noise which was very significant. We stayed as a family and we were on the highway side of the complex. The next day I actually wondered if the rooms on the other side were quieter. If they were then this place...

This was our last night in NZ and we had an early morning flight so it was very convenient being so close to the airport. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Room was very clean, tidy and comfortable although very small but ok for 1 night. There was no hairdyer provided, which would have been appreciated. All in all it...

Comfortable, clean, basic and close to airport. Not fancy at all - but fine for the overnight stay i.e. midnight arrival and a quick drive in the hire car. Good service by way of leaving a key in a safe box. $140 isn't dirt cheap - but did the job.

This hotel is ideally located just down the main road from the airport and has a convenience store/ petrol station situated just around the corner. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the manager Lynne is very helpful to new tourists.

Convenient location, comfortable and friendly staff. I have stayed here a few times and its great for those crazy flight times. The only negative is $145 is a bit high for this basic stay but all in all happy.

We found the motel clean and comfortable with friendly staff. The family unit is large and has a full kitchen . The only drawback is the traffic noise from the adjacent highway. We are from the country are are not used to traffic.

It's less than 10 minutes from the airport. Motel-style so your room opens straight onto the car park if you're ground floor. Receptionist was super-helpful with information and booking a preferential rate for a taxi pick up at 4am! Facilities in the room great, spotlessly clean and with kitchenette, decent sized bathroom, with toiletries. In-room information advised re local eateries...

Clean, friendly and close to airport. Ideally situated to Hornby mall, however takeaway Pizza places were not friendly for order and delivery. Ash trays outside on the floors was not really good as people smoking outside still blows into rooms when windows are open., Smoking area away from hotel would be a good idea as inside is a no smoking...
