For location, this is a great place to stay. Beautiful beaches, resturants in walking distance, completely of the hustle and bustle of Auckland city, but a short and easy drive to the CBD. A very safe area to walk around in, so great for business or holiday.
Hosts were lovely - thanks for looking after me !!
Rooms were clean and comfortable, well appointed but with a nice homely bach feel too.

Room Tip: if you have a heavy suitcase ask for a downstairs room.

We stayed at this motel when visiting friends in Auckland. The accommodation consists of a double bedroom, lounge, basic kitchenette and a small bathroom with shower and toilet. There is access to a small balcony. Rooms are small. A short walk brings you to the beach and promenade at Kohimarama and to local cafes, restaurants and shops. From here there is public transport into Auckland city centre. A longer walk takes you to the lively resorts of Mission Bay and St. Heliers where there are lots of bars and places to eat. The owners were helpful with local information, printing off maps, etc. All in all the motel is good value for its location close to the beach and its proximity to Auckland city centre.

We arrived in New Zealand after a long flight from England feeling pretty jetlagged and jaded. Plus driving a hire car from Auckland airport through town to the motel....... But we soon revived in the calm and welcoming atmosphere of the Aarangi,where we felt immediately at home. This is a great motel for seeing Auckland: it's just the right distance from the centre, and is handy for Tamaki Drive with beaches and Kelly Tarlton's aquarium just minutes away. Restaurants really handy too. Owners are lovely people: made us feel at home. We returned there for our last night in NZ after touring the country. Would we stay there again? You bet!

I arrived at the motel on a day where the weather was not the best, I was determined to make my break a good one though. I was greeted by a very friendly Asian man at the desk who was extremely helpful. We chatted for over an hour swapping investment tips. My unit was located up stairs where I could see the sea and plenty of sun poured through the huge windows. Not only did the weather clear up the next morning, I actually made money when I stayed with the Aarangi. I'm definitely going back to stay again :)
