We stayed for one night in a family room and we found it fine. Check out in the morning was easy and everything was clean and in working order. They had a pool that we didn't use. The location was about 5-10 minutes drive to the airport, fantastic.

We booked three rooms in this motel months in advance for a family wedding. We choose it because we could get a shuttle to the airport and leave our cars. We notified them of our ETA and this was confirmed. On our arrival we were told that they had double booked us and that we had to stay down the...

We could not fault the gentleman who picked us up in the motel shuttle service. He was extremely polite and knowledgeable. He organised to take us shopping later in the afternoon, took us around Mt Smart Stadium where the Adele concert was showing us where to enter and also picked us up after the show in the pouring rain and...

I stay here for only 1 night. It is nearby to the airport and town. Free shuttle bus is available to the airport.Room is ok but need urgent upgrade. Hot shower is provided. I stay at level 1 , provided with small pantry. Free wifi for 100mb. After all is ok for me as a solo traveller.

The saying "you get what you pay for" is very true in this case. Agree with recent comments about this motel. Maybe a more reasonable cost to those around plus it does have a free airport shuttle but the accommodation is old, tired, dirty and in need of much upgrading. No pillow slip on one of the pillows discovered when...

Old facilities, including bed, kitchen, bathroom and hangers…… Walking about 20 mins to supermarket, and there is no restaurant around there. But they could provide free pick up and drop off service from airport to hotel.

Disgusting motel. Coffee mugs were filthy, still had coffee rings in them. Had no dishwashing liquid, asked a staff member for some and he brought back a small amount along with a scrubbing brush that had black hair tangled through the bristles...YUCK! Mosquitos squashed on the door, mould/mildew throughout the bathroom. The separate bedroom had an ant problem. The oven...

We arrived at this motel hoping it was the correct choice being so close to Auckland Airport. It was a mistake...this motel is filthy and outdated,we requested our refund and left for another nearby. Mould in bathroom,and dirty kitchen with threadbare carpet...not recommended.

Good location, free shuttle to airport which always helps, but very noisy with cars coming and going in and out of the hotel car park and you can hear doors slamming and banging around from other rooms. The room size was decent with a big bathroom and fridge.

I could write volumes, but to what end....? The place is old, it can't help that, but it ain't clean either; not at all! Example: 3 pillows, only one has a pillow case and that of dubious "whiteness". The other 2, completely uncovered, just the cover from the factory, but showing great "experience" on their outsides.... The oven was new...
