Pros: easy to find
Location: Close to Middlemore hospital
Non smoking room stunk of smoke. Owners came and changed duvet and sprayed air freshener which made it better. No sink in the kitchenette so have to fill jug or wash dishes in bathroom.

south Aucklands best.

The motel was clean and comfortable in a tidy location. On the main road so could hear some traffic mainly at night but not too loud. Close to the airport, malls and food. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room service could do with some improvement, they did not replace things that had been used,eg milk, toilet paper, hot chocolate sachets. I had to ask at the office for these things. Apart from that, I'd return to stay there quite happily.

Quiet and clean

Pros: Quiet, good value, close to motorway Internet free, for multiple devices - and it worked!
Cons: TV was unplugged with aerial out when we arrived - would be good to have it plugged in and ready to go.
The units feel like someone cares - very clean with a few nice finishing touches. Close to the Southern motorway for easy access, but very quiet.
