Hi, Ellerslie is fine, no better or worse than any other of the central suburbs. Plenty of Motels to try in the area e.g. Elerslie Highway Motel which are a very bood budet option.

There is not a lot to do or see in Ellerslie and it is also quite a way from downtown Auckland so you would need to consider transport costs for getting in and out of the city. Public transport is improving in Auckland but it is still not great and taxis are not cheap - it would probably cost around or upwards of NZ$30.00 to get from Ellerslie into the city - depending on how much time you have to sit in traffic

Have a look at www.maxx.co.nz This inlcudes a trip planner which tells you how to get around Auckland using public transport - I can't vouch for how good it is.

You may be better to look in the Parnell area which is close to the city. It is not far from both the shoping area in Newmarket and downtown Auckland and itself has a good selction of cafes, restaurants ans small shops.

I agree that Ellerslie is a little way out but maybe there is something that you want to see in that area.

Look at www.wotif.com for real good deals on accommodation, sometimes you can get central Auckland for a really good price.
