We stayed for two nights and was a lovely stay. The motel hosts were very accomodating and our room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. So close to restaurants and plenty of parking. Top marks for the room service! Great size servings and prices - will be back as we travel to Auckland often

Room Tip: Try for the one bedroom suite - more room than the studio

Stayed for one night in one of the smaller double rooms closer to the road. Cheap for the night and close to the airport. Upon entering the room it looked quite nice, it was clean and well presented. There was a spacious separate bathroom and a small kitchenette.

It was strange that our kitchenette had 2 of everything (bowls, plates, glasses), however we only had 1 knife and 1 fork which was a bit unhelpful for a room with two people. Thankfully we had our own so it wasn't a bother.

Could hear a bit of road noise but it wasn't too bad. Bed was reasonably comfortable there were a few stains on the bedspread.

Stayed here two nights. Took advantage of special deal on studio rooms. I did book short notice. First night was in older room close to road. This room was quite noisy and a little dated. However it was scrupiously clean and comfortable. I talked to reception the next morning and they moved me without fuss to a room within the main building. This had been recently renovated and looked great. It was quieter and a great deal.
Overall the staff were great, the rooms clean and the price was right. Only downside was the first night with the road noise (Great South Rd is a busy road). However this was quickly sorted and may have been because of my short notice. i would however suggest asking for a quiet room in the new block when booking.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet one in the renovated main block.

We booked this motel thinking it was near Adelaide CBD. It's a long way out. Free courtesy bus from airport and driver/motel manager took us on a tour if the local area to acclimatise us. Very friendly. Trip into Adelaide CBD was easy on public transport.

We booked the hotel based on reviews and being within easy distance to the airport and Auckland. This was one of the only two good points about this place. It is the sort of hotel that if I had of driven passed would have said I would never stay there.

Upon arrival (we had booked through Agoda), our booking was not in the system. Needing a room for five we were lucky to still get one even though we had already paid. The room itself had a separate bedroom and a small kitchenette. The lounge was faded and stained. This set off the tone for the room. The bed spreads were dirty. The bathroom had been updated but felt like a trailer home bathroom. The walls were grubby and I had never seen a bin so small.

Surprisingly enough there was a pillow menu. Our children thought this was great and made a selection. However upon making the request we were asked how many pillows we already had and why we wanted more. The different pillows eventually arrived but were dropped off in an unfriendly manner.

At night there was constant noise from the floor above with persons running up and down. It also sounded like there was a party up stairs. This competed with the road noise.

The other positive about this place was the male staff member who was more than happy to help with travel advice. This would not however lead to staying here again.
