We were so disappointed to overnight stay here. Our apartment had mould on the walls in the bathroom and shower, no bath mat, no dishcloth for wiping bench, no lock on the bathroom door, dirty windows, looked like some painting was half way through in places, room smelled of paint, and there was a calendar on the wall with notes...

Room was dated, which I could handle... But the stains on the bedcovers, mold on the roof and soap (I hope) splattered up the window showed cleanliness isn't a priority here. Tried to get refund and leave but after an hour of discussion we ended up another room. Considering we had paid $270 a night the room was disgusting and...

Not up to scratch. Bed linen wasn't fresh, mould on the windows and all up the curtains. Shower temperature went from boiling to freezing, impossible to regulate. Maintenance and housekeeping not high on their priorities obviously. When I voiced my concerns, the receptionist just looked at me blankly. Very disappointing for $170 per night. Would not stay again.

Came here after the hotel we had booked had double booked us. It was 9pm we were very tired and drove around trying to find a room. Luckily we found one here. Very friendly and very clean. Had everything we needed. We were expecting a 5* hotel that night but ended up in a motel but we were perfectly happy.

When we arrived our room had been given to other people and we were told we had been put into two bedrooms individual bedrooms which did not suit our purpose. We tried for the first night but...

Drove up to this place as we were look for a hotel on a busy night, checked in with no expectations. This place is great specifically if you have a large family with kids. The pool and hot spa was really nice even though the weather was not great , still the kids had great fun. Rooms were well maintained...

We only stayed one night. It was a lovely quiet motel, walking distance from the restaurant strip in Hurstmere Road. However the shower was unmanageable, with temperature control crazy and the shower head faced the door! We did have a manic above us fiddling with a power socket about 3am sounding like a mouse in the wall! Please have a...

Good option if you are staying in Takapuna rooms are reasonably spacious with a good kitchen, tv and comfortable bed. On a cold winters night we were warm and cosy with the heater. Unlimited wifi was a bonus too.

Stayed here for the first time and was much better than expected. The reception staff was excellent and very helpful, the room we stayed in had a lovely poolside view. Another plus point for us was the fact that bus stop was across the road and was a big help as we did not hire a car for our tri.

We were upgraded which was great. Accommodation very clean and tidy. We felt that the accommodation was average very central. Our unit needed some TLC furniture was very tired and not all of the windows were able to be shut securely as latches were missing. The lady who greeted us on arrival was lovely and very friendly.
