1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2011

I had booked three nights at the Takapuna International Motor Lodge for the period I was at a NZBI conference to be held in the nearby Bruce Mason Centre. I had a meeting of the natioanl executive of the NZBI on the evening of my check in. The meeting had gone on an hour longer than expected and I received a call from the motel saying that they closed the office at 8.30pm (yes 8.30pm, and they call themselves International).

I explained that I would get there as soon as I could and it would be close to 8.30. I ran through Takapuna with my suitcases and realising it was 8.29 and I was still 3 minutes away I called to tell them I would be there in 3 mins and "could they wait for me?"

I was rudely told that "No. Go find hotel. Many open late."

Shocked, I pleaded but to no avail. I knew the conference would likely have booked out many of the local hotels and motels. I was lucky that a conference delegate had cancelled at the greatly superior Emerald. So I enjoyed good service, and a great breakfast of bacon and eggs for each day of the conference. Plus I was only 50m from the conference centre.

We arrived at this motel after a long drive. We struggled to find a suitable motel, and found this one by accident. The motel is just off the main road, and provides a quiet place to stay, within walking distance of the centre of Takapuna. The reception staff were very helpful, and we were able to use the laundry and iron. The room was clean and well-furnished.
