This is the fourth visit to Kohi and staying at Aarangi Motel this year and I would never stay anywhere else. The rooms are well appointed, clean and very quiet. The motel is in a fantastic spot with lots of great restaurants nearby. It is a lovely beachside spot, with everything you would want.

We have stayed here a few times and would stay again. Only issue experienced was staying in room 2 on the last visit. The floorboards above were loose and it sounded like elephants walking above us. Aside from that glitch on the last visit, we love this hotel and would definitely stay again.

We have stayed here before & enjoy the great location - close to the Kohimarama Beach, Mission Bay & the downtown of Auckland. Full kitchen, small ocean view, rooms a bit dated & bedrooms small but comfortable.

For $190 per night you get a basic, decent sized room with adequate amenities, though the water pressure in the bathroom isn’t flash. What you are paying for is a quiet motel in a leafy Auckland suburb 200 metres from the beach and a variety of local restaurants within easy walking distance. Of the local eateries, Mamma Rosa’s and Der...

Thank you so much for your review, it is great to here that you enjoyed the location, it really is a great part of Auckland, especially if you don't need to be in the City Centre, but as you say it is a short drive into town if you do need to get there. Thank you again for taking the...

Very tidy throughout, more spacious than a hotel room, although I did miss the air conditioning. Kitchen facilities in the room and pleasant location and surroundings. Plunger and coffee beans supplied which was great in the morning! Coffee shops/bar a stones throw away.
