We stayed here for a week. Most of the unit was very clean and tidy. The kitchen area needs some work though. The cooktop either needs a really good clean or replaced. The bench-top the same. They serviced the unit every day which was really good. Very noisy most nights with roadwork's, but that was not there fault. Staff were... More

I booked a $99.00 unit via http://www.aatravel.co.nz/main/index.php late last year. When I arrived on Saturday March 1, the motel didn't have my conformation. I was told that they had stopped all bookings via online booking sites and that I should have received an email, which I didn't. No motels left in Auckland. In fairness to the motel I did stay...

We stayed there for 4 nights and were given a choice of upstairs or downstairs room. Despite being close to the motorway, it was quiet. Kitchen-type facilities in the room could do with being expanded, but excellent breakfasts were included in the price. We visit Auckland every few months and will definitely stay there again. Great value.

I guess the new owners are trying to do their best BUT. I would like to be their maintenance person and supervisor I would be assured of a fulltime job for quite a few weeks. Even hiring a "mystery shopper" type guest would be a positive management move. Reception attention was very good, nice pleasant young lady - tried her... More

I was going to give this Motel only a "poor" rating. but after speaking to the owner over another matter, I believe she is genuinely aware of issues pertaining to this motel. It is with this in mind, and with a belief that the quality of this motel might improve, that I give a reluctant "average" rating. I concur with... More
