Crap stay

They putvus in a room, i walked in and could not go fully in as there were fumes (evidently airfreshner) that cause my lungs to garsp, my son said it felt like he was breathing down powder it was really bad!! I told them so they put me in a room that was so so crapy i said i couldnt stay in it they got snotty and put me in a room that had a queen and one single.. we had booked a two room for 5 people.. she was rude there was no way she would compensate for the downsize.. my son didnt even want to stay as said it creeped him out. He went home to Tauranga at mignight and i cancelled other two people staying so just my hubby and i stayed.... all my clothes stink of the smell that was through all hotel but at a lower level .. she hardly looked at me leaving or asked how we got on.. tital rip off tge cost i wanted to go home at mid night too but had dog sitters staying

Great family room

Pleasantly surprised by the room. There was plenty of room for us and our children and the room was very clean and well serviced. Just the right amount of cutlery and crockery and nice fluffy towels! The location was close to Mt Smart and Sylvia Park and easy to find. Only drawback is that it is quite noisy being on the main road, but that is Auckland for you!

Accused of stealing cutlery

Recieved a call late in day after checkout telling me I had stolen cutlery. I calmly explained that I had not person was very rude and hung up on me after telling me I would charged for the cutlery. I emailed though no reply. I was charged for cutlery. It was my word against there cleane who swore it was there when they cleaned prior day. Would stay well away from this place

Pros: Nothing

Cons: get their facts straight before accusing guests of theft

what beautiful people!! We are a family of 4 and came up to Auckland for the Ed Sheran Concert. Nothing was a problem for these lovely people. And when everyone came back to the Motel (which was on their bus) we all were greeted with pizzas to take back to our rooms!! Highly reccommend. Great place and great people!! Would definietly stay there again.
