Having stayed at 7 motels in our travels around the north island, all 6 were very good. This one, the last and largest on our trip was an absolute disgrace. Surly staff. Very dated, dirty threadbare carpets, grubby damaged furniture and fittings, grey towels, marked bedspread, dirty curtains and windows. The bathroom was dirty with water damaged cupboard and had...

Average hotel with very basic facilities. Staff were not friendly but not rude. Handy location to airport. Nothing to mention great. IF you are after a one night at a low cost where you wont whinge then this hotel is for you.

Tired, sad, unloved. Stained bedspread, dangerous and broken light switch. Mould. Empty ciggy packet under the bed. Only 3 cups and the only teaspoon was a plastic one! Fleas in bed and so woke up scratching. The sheets and towels were clean but the bedspreads were not. This motel is also right next door to Mangere community centre so the...

Friendly and helpful staff member dropping us off at the airport and picking us up promptly. The property is very dated and not helped by the substantial roadworks going on. Hopefully it will be updated once the roadworks are completed. But our room was clean, comfortable and quiet. If you have a car they can look after it for you,...

Overpriced. In scum area. We have a Ford Ranger. Couldn't even fit in the carpark. Beds were uncomfortable. I'm not even sure the sheets were clean. The towels were hideous. Nothing near it. They give u 6 tiny milks for 7 beds. Never again. Every time a car comes in in the night your room lights up like anything. Woulda...

We have used this motel twice. There is an airport shuttle if required. It is not modern but the rooms are clean and neat. You can use the wifi in 100MB at a time. We were given 4 access codes. There is not eating facility at the motel so you need to provide your own which was difficult for us...

The service was good and it is fine for an overnight stay. Ringing for the shuttle was a problem as we couldnt connect using the phones at the visitor centre (which was closed at night) as they did not leave a short number that would work from those phones. Fortunately the lady at the hire car place directly opposite rang...

We had great service, dropping us up at the airport, looking after our car then picking us up when we got back. What was disappointing was the 9:00am knock on the door by the cleaners asking us when we are leaving (10:00am checkout!) not impressed as we had arrived late and wanted as much sleep as we could get. The...

Booked room via Travelbug which advised of 24hr wait for confirmation. I needed immediate confirmation as I was about to leave for Auckland (a 4hr drive). So I rang Airport Gold Star and explained that I needed confirmation by phone as I had a long trip ahead, could not wait for the written confirmation, and did not have money to...
