5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

It is one of the best motels I have stayed in South Auckland. You can visibly see that these owners take pride in their business. The cleaning staff were accommodating and friendly. I am going to book again for next weekend as we have a wedding to attend in Pukekohe but will much rather stay at the Colonial Motel.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

Friendly people who made us feel welcome. Clean and tidy. Had everything we required as far as amenities were concerned. It was relatively quiet given it was on a main road.

    Nothing, same as others in Papakura, the man always negative to other motels in the area, Only one iron the hole place, you wait until other customers finish.
