We had read some negative reviews so were unsure what to expect but were delighted to find our unit completely upgraded. it was spotlessly clean, the beds were very comfortable and the location is excellent. Our only negative would be that in our unit the shower levels were a bit out so that water ran out under the door when...

This accommodation is very clean. Beds were very comfortable. Shower was excellent. Tea . coffee. Hot chocolate all provided as they should be. Plenty clean fresh towels. It was all very modern and fresh. Perfect for Mount Smart Stadium!

Don't be put off by old photos and nasty comments this place has new owners, been completely gutted and rebuilt only opening again in January 2017. It's known as Ellerslie Palms now. Immaculate rooms, comfy beds and great location.

We needed a motel for a couple of nights stay in Auckland after a long flight from the UK; this motel provided this in impressive fashion. You have to say you associate the word 'motel' with maybe a dirty, grubby room with an ensuite you may see in American film; we were pleasantly surprised to see a clean, newly refurbished...

Ignore the old reviews!! This motel is fantastic! We traveled as a group and were blown away by the friendly staff, new facilities and wowed by the shower, kitchen and comfortable beds. It's quiet despite it's location on a main highway. The owners have done an amazing job to bring this at one time tired motel into the 21st century....

What a great job they have done to get this place up and going, great service at check in, rooms are all newly renovated, quiet, comfy beds and everything you need to self cater. There are a few shops and takeaways nearby. The motel is easy to find and only a short drive to the city, if the traffic is...

It is now known as the Ellerslie Palms Motel, and the rooms have been refurbished and are quite up-to-date : Good bathroom and fittings, reverse cycle split air con, big TV. The pool is no longer there, replaced by garden. New owners / managers. Only issue I had was that the water isn't too hot in the mornings (not in...

I really should have checked trip advisor before booking this motel. The rooms are very run down and sorely in need of updating. It looks nothing like the pictures on the booking sites. It was fine for my purposes and the staff were reasonably friendly, but just really outdated.
