This is one of only two lodges within easy reach - 7 mins - of the ferry to Waiheke at Half Moon Bay

The location is fine, easy to find and off the main road

The room we occupied was basic and probably would have been designed and built in the 70s. Cleanliness and facilities need updating.

For the money, this was, frankly unacceptable and I have a personal dislike of motels that dip their prices by 30% at the last minute - guys, the price is the price!!

The location was great as we were getting the ferry to Waiheke Island the following morning. Slept great after a very long journey to New Zealand! Didn’t meet the hosts as we got in so late but they were kind enough to leave us a note and direct us on how to find our room.

We stayed for business and it was absolutely fine! Nothing flash, nothing special - but no complaints! Big bonus for great communication and reservation. We felt really looked after. Great was also that the dog could stay!

We booked one night with our daughter in a two level unit.

The unit is admittedly quite dated but it is very clean and tidy.

Bed was not the most comfortable I’ve slept in but it did the job.

There was plenty of room with a small couch, dining table etc.

There was a decent sized private outdoor area with BBQ table.

The service and staff were absolutely brilliant.

It was no problem for us to check in earlier than normal and everything wasn’t a problem.

We dealt with about 3 different staff throughout the day/night who were extremely friendly, accommodating and made our experience an extremely pleasant one.

My rating based purely on the accomodation would most likely be lower if it wasn’t for the 5 star service from the staff.

I would certainly recommend coming here.

Basic accomodation, in line with the cost. Our room was clean but nothing flash here.
On a busy road but we were at the back of the motel so didn’t effect us much - probably fairly quiet during the night.
