Dirty. Damp. I mean really smelly damp. The mould is everywhere. Old. Run down. Just all round yucky and cleaning staff complained and swore about management. Stay away. This place should be demolished.

A very conveniently placed motel that allows easy access to central Auckland and other places such as Ellerslie racecourse and the Auckland Show grounds.
For us, on a visit to see Shakespeare plays at Ellerslie and the Pop-up-globe theatre, as well as nearby friends, it was ideal. We wanted a clean, quiet and reasonably priced place to stay for the night. It may not be the flashest place in town, but it gives great value for what it provides.
Any drawbacks? Well parking and driving out can be fun, especially when one of the residents has not parked their van properly.

Room Tip: Room 15 is best as you have more space to park.

We booked two rooms and located in rooms with our own litle sun porch. An old motel but okay. Amenities were basic but good. Sky TV, microwave, hot water jug, fridge and crockery. Bathroom clean and shower had instant hot water. The staff were in uniform, nice colours purple and yellow. Seen that only once before in a New Zealand motel. We both had a good sleep. Comfortabe queen bed in each room. The sun got too hot to sit on outdoor deck in the afternoon. Fan in the room.

Room Tip: Bungalow style ground floor unit was good

We stayed here because we weren't quick when booking for the night of the Springsteen concert. Based on the reviews I wasn't expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised at our stay.

There were 4 adults so we got a unit that was separate from the two-storey block of rooms. It had one bedroom with a king bed and two singles out in the lounge area. The bathroom was pretty clean and so was the rest of the unit.

The staff were very friendly and took care with details - they offered a simple breakfast where we could choose between toast and spreads or cereal. It was delivered to our room while we were out so it was there for our breakfast the next day. There was coffee, tea and a microwave in the room. It had a hotplate too but we didn't use it.

Only one of the beds was uncomfortable but the pillows were good. Overall, for a motel it does the job. Even at the event-weekend price, we felt it was a decent place. It's close to Newmarket and to Mt Smart Stadium. Sure it needs an update but the care the staff put into it help.

I stayed here with family of 5 and it just isn't clean enough. Carpet was gross and gave the rest of the room a bad vibe. The bathroom was ok and it is handy to Newmarket but wouldn't stay here again.
