I really want to say nice things about this motel as the service was very good. Unfortunately the room was not very clean and very basic. The only ensure was dirty and had no tray or dish to cook in, the tiling in the bathroom was just yuck, and the windows were very dirty. It was a cheap place to...

Old 80's style motel a little rough around the edges but price reflects what you get. Great location handy to Auckland Airport. Ideal for that short stay. Plenty of parking and surprisingly quiet for its busy road location. The units are clean and warm and the bed comfortable enough. Yes its a bit tired and the fittings cheap, but price...

We travelled as a family, me, my son and his two sons, 10 and 12. I booked a Family unit, which consisted of two twin rooms and a double bed in the main room. We arrived about 7pm and left the next morning at 6.30am. It was perfect for that amount of time. The features in the unit are old...

This motel is another hidden comfort. The room was large, good kitchenette and reasonably well stocked. Quiet and very clean. The staff are pleasant and nothing was an effort for them, not even getting us to the airport at 3:30am. Well done would stay again.

The photos look nice. Don't be sucked in! Not at all clean. Can't use the oven without opening the front door. The sliding door out to 'the lovely pool area' is broken and has to be lifted to close. I hope the beds are clean. The shower is disgusting. Not even looking forward to having a shower. The stove top...

Our room was 31, right next to a big hall used for celebrations. It was so loud & the people next door (who rent a room long term) were up til 4am! On night 2 I asked them to be quiet which is not like me but we were exhausted.Pay a bit more & stay somewhere else. At least room...

This motel needs a major overhaul or needs to be closed! Noisy, bright lights shine through old windows, shower grout all mildewed. Surface clean only. I could not sleep the whole night as I was worried what might be lurking in the dark. Shuttle service was good but the very few staff/owners not friendly. Smoking allowed outside of rooms so...

This place is abit dated old and tatty and in need of a makeover! Has that old musky smell in the room too like my grandmother's house. The room just doesnt feel safe and secure too! Also 7am in the morning really isnt a great time for housekeeping to just walk on into your room to clean without knocking first....
