Eavery things was clean and organized but most of things was old and worn out they don't take any credit card unless you have pin number I had very hard time to pay them. I did had had America express without pin I couldn't use my card. I think that is the family owned business they give too much respect... More

Awesome place to stay! The hosts bent over backwards to accommodate me and my family. The rooms were clean, warm and cosy. WIFI was awesome too no problems. Close to where we needed to be and the airport as well. Would definitely return again. Thank you for making our stay easy and carefree!@

I booked this place after reading all the great reviews on Trip Advisor and overall was disappointed with my experience. New owners need to invest in the facilities. I stayed two nights in two different rooms. Pros: - The new owners are really friendly and respond quickly to any requests - I requested a quiet room when booking and received... More

Stayed here with my partner. Really enjoyed our stay. Loved the warm muffins and late check out. The place was clean and cosy, service was great and they made it feel personal. The resident cat was friendly (and were not even cat people). The motel is close to everything and nice and quiet. Recommended!

Friendly welcoming hosts, complete with warm muffins on check in. Range of DVDs to borrow. Clean well appointed units, with full kitchen serviced daily . Suitable for travelling with children. Some noise from the street, but reasonably private. Would recommend if needing somewhere in South Auckland.

The Grange Lodge is quite convenient to Auckland Airport. The family room had plenty of space. The blockout curtains in the bedroom made it nice and dark for sleeping. The kitchen was well equipped (although rather outdated). If you don't mind a bit of mould on the bathroom walls and having a shower in a bath, it's fine. Mind you... More

Nice little hotel in the suburb of Papatoetoe, on the outskirts of Auckland, Rooms were good, but the heater needed to be upgraded, The hotel is a 10 minute walk away from shops so you really need a car to stay at this place. The staff were excellent and very helpful, In all I would stay here again.

We stayed in a two bedroom unit while on a visit to Rainbow's End. On the positive the beds were really comfortable. It was a bit noisy backing on to a busy road. This could be improved if double glazed. Overall it was rather dated and tired. It needs some investment to improve.

Based on reviews here we booked to stay for one night on route from airport to Half Moon Bay ferry terminal. Our two bedroom chalet was dirty and full of cobwebs. Everything felt sticky to the touch. Ended up checking out and moving to another hotel.

My wife and I flew in to Auckland and stayed 2 nights at Grange Lodge Motel. It had a lovely and homely feel and the beds were comfortable. The location is also really convenient to get to the airport as we needed to catch a flight early the next day to Queenstown. The rooms were really clean and well serviced.... More
