Reviewed 6 January 2014

The chalets were lovely and everything we needed was available. The staff were amazingly friendly, and the hot muffins on arrival was a nice touch (and perfect timing as it was afternoon tea time for the kids, and we were tired with no food purchased by that stage). Everything was clean and tidy. Our only complaint was the road noise;...

Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review. We loved meeting you and your family. Your children were a credit to you and our dog Mack loved them. We trust that your last minute hassles with your airline were sorted out and that you got away on time.

We stayed here at the beginning of November and we were not disappointed. Soon after we had booked I received an email from Pat & Bernie with link to local attractions. We booked a two bedroom lodge and it was perfect and had lots of useful things, like a clothes horse to dry clothes, an electrical extension lead and post...

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your experience at our motel and especially for your very kind comments. We were delighted you were able to spend a bit of time in and around Auckland.

This was our first stop over on a tour around the North Island with three of our grandchildren following our daughter's wedding in Dunedin on the South Island. Arriving later than intended we were met by Bernie who had a plate of freshly baked muffins for us which the children accepted with great gusto. After showing us to our clean...

Pat and Bernie are really good hosts. On our arrival, Bernie offered us some fresh muffins that she had baked that morning (and they were delicious). They also offered us a lot of guidance as to what to do in Auckland. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The breakfast was decent. Overall, a very pleasant experience. We will like...

My husband, 4 year old, and I just left the Grange Lodge and we already miss it! We picked this place because of the great reviews and its proximity to the city (while still being away from the hustle and bustle of Auckland). We arrived late one evening due to several flight delays, but Pat kindly greeted us in the...

Thank you so much for reviewing us and I hope you had no further trouble getting lost in Auckland! I'm sorry you thought check out time was 12 noon.

Reading the reviews, I was expecting to enjoy my stay at Grange but it was even better than expected. Arriving in NZ from the states way too early in the morning, we arrived at the motel at 8 in the morning (yes, 8). I had not thought ahead that we would be a bit exhausted from an extremely long flight....
