I am trying to find accommodation for our first couple of nights in New Zealand. I have done lots of internet searches and have searched this forum and am still not too sure. I wonder if anyone could help with some recommendations:
We are looking at a budget of around $100-200 a night but this is fairly flexible.
We will have just arrived on an international flight so would like somewhere easy to get to from the airport, preferably on public transport. We probably won't be very awake!
We'd like somewhere within easy reach of interesting Auckland sights and city centre.
There will be two of us.
Some basic cooking facilities would be good but not essential.
We were looking at motels but don't know the geograghy of the Auckland area so it was hard to know how convenient these would be to get to and get around without a car. We would consider a hostel but the ones I looked at in Auckland didn't seem to get good reviews.
Any help would be much appreciated.
