The price was reasonable as we reserved the hotel at least four months ago before traveling. There are not many hotels around that area. The facility are new. I believe it was renovated recently. We had a garden view room. The bed was huge (king size), that makes the walking area relatively smaller. When we checked-in, the receptionist cannot find...

We enjoyed our stay overall, the owners were nice and friendly, the room was clean and well equipped. We would prefer to have a TV in bedroom too so we can relax while watching TV. but otherwise, everything was great.

Family managed motel right on the waterfront which is a rare find anywhere near Auckland.

This motel suites us fine. It's nothing fancy, basic little suite. But the location was excellent. Could take the ferry right into downtown Auckland! And also the ferry to Waihiki Island, well worth some visits with beaches and wineries and shopping. The motel could use some updating but it was a nice, quiet and handy spot to live for a...

I stayed 4 nights at the Bucklands Beach Waterfront Motel. I was in a cabin at the rear of the property which was spacious and comfortable. There was a full size fridge, small cooking facilities, microwave and sink etc. Bathroom was small but more than adequate. I only had a glimpse of the water, but each morning went on a...
