We arrived at 1am and the key was left out with instructions. It's relatively close to the airport, approx $30 day time but $50 after midnight. The room was very clean however no towels were available which we just assumed there would be. The owners are VERY friendly and accommodating. The grounds are well kept, showers & toilets were also...

We had just traveled from Los Angeles to Sydney and from there to Christchurch where we picked up our RV. We were tired, and needed some rest. This location was very close to the airport where we picked up our RV. We were able to get some groceries and a bite to eat. We slept and in the morning we...

I have stayed here before and rang them directly. The lady was very helpful and when I said I had my son she upgraded me to a two room for the same price. The rooms are super clean. A little tired but it's value for money. Close to the airport as well. The bed was very comfortable. On my wish...

Thanks for your review William. Really appreciated. Point taken about "tired" decore. Quietly doing up as we go. A work in progress, but we are getting there. We would love to have you back again :-) Kind regards. Bronnie

Our cabin was small, but clean and had everything we needed. I will not be able to stay for extended periods of time, but for one or two nights this is fine. Was frustrating that there are no bus stops or shops close by.

Hi there and thanks for your feedback. Always appreciated. We note your frustration with the shops a 30 min walk away and the bus stop in Northwood Boulevard a 10 minute walk away. Hopefully as we get more built in this will improve. By car the shops are 3-4 mins away. Regarding your accommodation, we appreciate your feedback on this....

Stayed here at the end of our trip. Close to airport. Friendly and helpful staff. No free wifi. Clean and simple facilities in the campground area. Lounge room area heating wasn't big enough to heat the entire room. Would stay here again at the beginning or end of trip.

This is the fourth time we have stayed here. Previous times we have stayed in ensuite cabins, cabins and the motel units. This time we stayed in a motel unit as we had an early morning flight.

Recently stayed at 219 on Johns. Although having misunderstood the cancellation policy, the stay was nice, and the staff were very helpful when approached. Close to the airport, and great for a night away before flying. Would recommend.

We stayed here for one night before picking up Campervan next morning. The lady owner at the front desk was very friendly and provided good information.

Had 3 bedroom apt for one night sleeping 8. Price? was ok. I liked that there is an entrance room before you enter the single level apartment. Very good for saving heat. Though there is only small fan heaters in the rooms oil heaters could have been a better idea. Ark outside the apartment supermarket a short DRIVE down busy...
