I am still here at the motel lol because of my work in Auckland however I've been here 7 plus days already this place is awesome! John was a lifesaver after a bad experience at a previous motel he gave me a room immediately and allowed me to check-in at 10.30am well before check-in time of 2pm that never happens at any motel he and his wife are the perfect couple to run a motel like this especially as its very peaceful and very easy to drive out of theres no traffic build-up which surprised me as its in a busy area - the décor is good standard - Highly recommended A++++

My wife and I stayed a night here after a long drive up from Te Kuiti because it was cheap and easy to get to from the Motorway. We were pleasantly surprised by the room which (even though it had two big columns running through it) was comfortable and well laid out with the bed partitioned off. The sofa was worn but comfortable and the shower room/toilet was spacious and modern. We went out for takeaways about 200 meters down the road but the kitchen was actually well appointed. Not sure if I'd stay in that particular room for 2 or more nights but for one night it was fine. The staff were very helpful and friendly even though we had a late check in.

Room tip: We chose based on price and you get what you pay for so suggest you spend a bit more to get a better room.

my husband and I enjoyed our 5 day stay. we were in room 28 with a huge spa which was to kill for. room was clean and cleaner came in every day.
the management and staff were all polite and very helpful.
I would recommend this motel to my friends.
1 problem we had was the fridge.....it kept freezing up our milk etc etc. but it was no big issue.
thanks guys for a wonderful time.

This was a last minute booking as the rest of town was full for a Rod Stewart Concert (really???).

We booked late and, as we were extremely late getting in, were appreciative of the fact that the reception was still open.

The room was tidy, if a little unusually shaped but was clean and tidy.

I'd recommend this place if you need a decent bed at a decent (for Auckland) price.

We just stayed overnight for the Eagles Concert as the city was booked out for Saturday. The hosts were lovely and provided a shuttle to the concert and it ended up a better proximity to the stadium than the city.
Very clean, service with a smile, well decorated, and comfortable beds - all we wanted

Room tip: We chose a one bedroom suite - lots of space, clean, and garden views
