“Cute little motel in nice hood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2012

We stayed here for one night when traveling around NZ, and found the hotel to be a nice little retreat near a very charming neighborhood in Auckland. Our room in the south building looked like a motel, but with clean and nicely appointed rooms (comfortable enough, though not luxurious). It's an easy walk to Parnell, and a little longer walk to the CBD (the hotel is on top of a hill and the walk back can be a challenge). If you're looking for a no frills but decent hotel in a more residential neighborhood, then this hotel is for you. If you want something that's more boutique or luxurious, I'd check out some other places...

We just stayed 1 night while we were in Auckland for the Gaga concert. Room was tidy, great facilities, and very good for what we paid.
Cost us $150 for the night, all night room service pizza was delicious, $16....
Only thing was we didnt have a credit card on us had to pay $150 bond, but got that back the next day no troubles.

This hotel is definitely good value for money! We stayed for 3 nights and it suited our needs. The service was pleasant and helpful. Slightly out of Auckland city and free parking which is a bonus in Auckland. The room was compact and it was a little disconcerting to open the front door and immediately be in the bathroom but the room was clean, had everything we needed and was comfortable. We paid for wi-fi however this was almost unusable in our room on the 5th floor, we had to stand outside our room to get a good enough connection. Wasn't a big deal for us but could be annoying for some. Parking was at a premium due to a conference the whole time we were there but we always managed to find somewhere around the back. We would stay again without hesitation.

Room Tip: Higher floors have amazing views which are worthwhile.

A friend and I stayed here when we went to a concert at the Vector Arena. I thought the rooms were excellent value for money. Very clean with two double beds and a good kitchen. Very quiet. An excellent huge breakfast was included in our rate. Would highly recommend. Approx 10 dollars in a taxi back home from the city so peanuts really. An easy walk down the hill if you would rather take a stroll and chat to the other people on their way to the concert.

We stayed at a 2 bedroom suite for 4 nights in April 2012. When we rang for reservation, we were informed that there was a special on for those staying 4 nights or more. We arrived around 12pm and the hotel allowed us to enter our rooms early. Had lifts to get to our room on the third floor as well as a luggage trolley, which was very helpful. We had no assigned carpark but we didn’t find any problems finding a carpark at night. The apartment was very clean and spacious and we liked the cupboard space in the bedrooms and the views. Fridge wasn’t full-sized but good enough if you don’t have much food or drinks to store in it. The rooms were serviced daily, with cleaning occurring around 3pm (rooms that were vacated were serviced in the morning to prepare for the next guests). Hotel is located in a nice, convenient location that is a few minutes drive from the restaurants and the city. Staff were friendly and helpful. We would stay here again.

From the moment you arrive you feel things are going to be ok. Arived same time as a tour bus, someone sprung out from behind counter and ensured I had a speedy check in. It is just so handy to town, but I love how quiet it is and the nice walks nearby.
