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!

540 on Great South AMAZING

Found this motel last minute on WOT IF. We thought it was too good to be true but nope it wasn't. It was exactly what we needed. John was amazing, organised a shuttle to and from Adele, which ended up basing a hummer, then to return home to hot pizza and juice. Nice and clean and would definitely stay there again.

Disappointed for the money spent

Pros: Cleanliness was OK
Cons: Sound proof the walls
Hotel was being painted and we suffered headaches etc from the fumes. Walls not sound proofed and we could constantly hear people talking in the next unit
