This motel is in a great location - not far from the city, walking distance to Auckland University Epsom campus and the Mt Eden shops nearby.
The rooms are old, tired and absolutely lacking. This could be such an incredible complex. It probably gets fully booked due to location, and with some attention it could be such a pleasant place to stay, instead as I arrived I said to my colleague "I already feel dirty".
One room had a pair of men's shorts (underwear) hanging off the shower window. Only shower I've seen in years with two taps and a curtain. Limited bathroom supplies. Didn't believe the note about waiting 20 mins between showers - I mean, really that is ridiculous. Coffee plunger there but only a tiny jar of instant coffee provided,no varieties of tea, which is unusual these days. Towels were old and worn. Half of chain lock security on doors, so useless. Big old tv's and when you changed to SKY the figures were distorted or you got what looked like a blizzard. Pool needed a good clean as well. Owners (I assume they were as if they were appointed managers they'd be looking for new jobs) were so, so - not over welcoming and were most unhelpful to some guests arriving who had English as a second language. I think they've just had enough and it is reflected in the accommodation which is unfortunate.
