the motel manger was friendly and very helpful. Nice surronding with good area for our son to play. Unit was quiet - didn't hear much road noise. Feel a paved area outside each unit would be added to the unit.
The room needed a good clean. Around the shower/ hand basin etc was dirty, hole in the wall by the shower. Needed a good vaccum and some of the sheets smell dirty and had hair on them.The legs of one of the single beds were broken and the double bed had serious roll together.
Was staying one night only for a rugby game, was most impressed with friendly, helpful staff member. He organised a taxi, told me places to go to get better tickets, and where to find the nightlife. Didnt expect much for overnight visit, but attitude made a difference.
The helpfulness and friendliness of the manager
I thought it was priced too high for the value and therefore would not recommend it or stay there again myself
We visited durig the rugby world cup chose the motel as it was one of the few available at the time . Although all hotel prices were raised during the event, we were charged 210. nz dollars for a room in a facility which needs an entire overhaul. The going rate for such a motel is about 80. nz dollars . The owner is very helpful but this is not good value for the money. Make sure to stay clear of Jamal the cabdriver whom the motel will call if you need a taxi. He will rip you off.
The best thing was the service.
I must say it was in a very noisy place . The room did have a kitchenette but was very dated.
It was close to the airport
The motel was extremely overpriced compared to all other places we visited in new zealand and compared to other motels in the same area. The bathroom was old, no exhaust fan and no power point. The kitchen was also old and we didn't find the switch to turn the fridge on until it was time to leave. The ironing board was unusable. We paid $375 per night and were expected to pay for internet access over and above that! The whole experience spoilt an otherwise enjoyable nz experience
The size of the room and the location to the airport with free shuttle,
We had to pay for the room up front before seeing the room, which was damp, mouldy, musty, filthy carpets and generally unclean. The bath/shower was not installed properly so it moved when you used it. People coming and going all night kept waking us up. The mattress on the bed was far too soft causing back ache. The room made me feel ill, it was far too late to complain when we arrived. We did stay for an extra $10 per night at the Jet Star hotel which was a hundred time better. We picked this motel because the reviews on here were positive which it turned out to be negative.
Staff were extremley helpful,and made us feel at home,was nice to be able to have our friends and family over on xmas day and swim and bbq by the pool together and the cleaning service was perfect,clean towels, rubbish removed and beds made every day,
Would have been good to have a microwave and free internet access in room.
Not what it seems throughout the internet
The Motel is very conveniently located close to Auckland airport, and the Motel will kindly arrange free transport to or from the airport. The staff were very helpful and friendly. In fact we stayed twice in the Motel, once in a family studio which had two bedrooms, and again in a single studio fro just two people. The accommodation has a fully equipped kitchen, and the beds are comfortable. The bathroom fittings work but are now looking a bit tired, and could do with renovation. Breakfast is brought to the room but is pretty basic for the price. The Motel is walking distance from several good restaurants, and a bus route to the centre of Auckland.
The Motel is situated on a busy main road, and near a community centre. Depending on which part of the Motel you stay at it can be a little noisy, but for both rooms we stayed in the noise was not a problem.
It was close to Auckland airport for our early morning flight and the manager was very helpful.
We didn't like being kept awake until 3.20 am by a group of youngsters who were staying at the hotel. They were in the grounds of the Motel making a lot of noise outside our room, continued in a room above us and at the side. It was impossible to sleep and resulted in our worst night in New Zealand of the 25 stays.
Fantastic value for money. Clean and alot more spacious then alot of more modern motels I have stayed in. David the manager was outstanding.Full of information about eateries, local sites and city attractions. So nice to sit under a most magnificent magnolia tree and have a wine. Pool looked great but a little too cold at this time! Shuttle from and to airport efficent and fast. Highly recommended to short stay and I am sure would be great for a longer vist too. Will be back!
A warm friendly welcome although we arrived late at night. This motel had very good facilities and was perfect for an early flight the next day.
Friendly and close to the airport. Hotel staff arranged our collection from the hotel by the people were hiring our campervan from and he was very friendly and chatty during the drive from the airport.
Friendly staff. accomodated our short travel requests by collecting and dropping us off.
