“Rip Off Hotel”
Reviewed 8 May 2008

Dreadful hotel, situated about 10 minutes drive to Auckland International Airport. Manager/owner rude and arrogant.
Hotel foyer /room shabby, although the hotel advertising on Wotif.com site says "recent refurbishment" ! Not soundproofed.
Don`t stay there even for 1 night, Its a bad experience!

  • Liked — At least the room was heated.
  • Disliked — shabbyness, uncomfortable bed, noise from aircraft & road, rude manager/owner
  • Stayed May 2008, travelled solo

Reviewed 24 March 2008

We stayed here for one night as we had an early flight out of Auckland the next morning. We stayed in a standard room, which was very neat and tidy for the price paid, no complaints there. The room had an electric heater and a pedistal fan. Would have been nice to have had a cooling unit. The carpark was away from most of the units, and didn't give us a sense of security, neither did the rooms as they only had door locks. Staff were helpful but not very enthusiastic if you know what i mean!
Overall, we were only here for a very short time, and in that time we got a good nights sleep for a very small price paid.

  • Liked — Close to the Airport
  • Disliked — Didn't feel overly secure

For some reason this small motel was the only one of about a dozen in the area with rooms when I arrived in the area one Friday evening.
Why Auckland airport's motel zone should be so busy on a February weekend might be put down to it being the end of the NZ summer.

In any case, staff at a nearby motel without rooms were kind enough to do some ringing round on my behalf. I could have been put off by their raised eyebrows when one of the number suggested the Travellers International.
Well, any port in a storm and when I checked in at the very sparse and bare reception, with a strong smell of stale cooking coming from a nearby dining room I might have been inclined to turn around and depart. At that point tiredness takes over and it has to be said that the (Korean?) clerk was very pleasant and friendly.
All signs were in Korean and it is clear that the hotel focuses on that community. At NZ$89 the room was cheap and seemed clean enough if somewhat old fashioned; I decided that a few stiff drinks at a different hotel would make things seem brighter.

As it turned out I had a reasonably good night sleep and left first thing the following morning to do some shopping without taking the breakfast.

Recommended? Only if you don't have high standards for facilities etc
Could it use a refurb? Absolutely

  • Liked — It was available
  • Disliked — It was the scruffiest motel in the area

ukrokeby, Manager at Travellers International Hotel, responded to this review, 6 November 2007
Since these last reviews have been posted the Hotel has changed ownership and is undergoing a refurbishment in all of the public areas and guest rooms. Our guests who have stayed here prior to the takeover are now happier to stay and frequently comment on the improvements in both the rooms and the facilities. We hope that the few mediocre comments will not deter future guests from trying us our new name is Travellers International Hotel, Kirkbride Road, Auckland International Airport, New Zealand.
