We needed a place on the last night of our trip before returning home and were really thrilled with this place.
The apartments are clean and spacious and provisions for brekky were welcomed.
We had stayed in Mangere a few times because of early flights and will definitely stay here again.

Stayed: October 2012, travelled with family

Beware that this is not the regular hotel. I arrived at 6 pm, the office was closed with no one to check me in. the number I called left a cell number I was not able to access dialing using a US phone. After 20 minutes standing in the rain trying to figure out how to get the call thru, I walked down the street to the Best Western (warmly greeted by someone actually there at 6:30 pm). I called the Choice Hotels number, who connected me with the manager/owner who was astonished I had not picked up from the website that they are not open after five and that advance arrangements must be made for such, and refused to cancel the reservation and refund the money. This person was rude and belligerent. I have traveled internationally 2-3 months a year for many years and this is the worst service I have ever experienced. Steer clear of this hotel and the Choice Hotel chain.

There is always two sides to any discussion.
Our Website is very clear about the times our office is open and that we are very happy to accommodate late arrivals provided we have had a communication from the guest.
In this circumstance the guest chose not to contact us and then made it our fault that he couldnt use his phone.
It was his reaction that was belligerent when advised that we couldnt refund after the event.
I am pleased that Best Western was able to assist him.

Really good place to stay near Auckland airport. The appmts are immaculate, roomy, stylish and have air conditioning too! Continental breakfast is also supplied free of charge. The appmt also has its own laundry with cleaning products too. The lounge area is very modern and relaxing. Shopping centre only a few minutes drive away. Would certainly stay here again!

We stayed 1 night in a ground floor room before leaving NZ early the next day. Located 5 minutes drive from the airport but quiet (never heard any aircraft). Spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, great shower. Quite expensive at 179 NZD for 1 night. Although it had all mod cons there was only broadband - no wi-fi! Incredible! What would a router cost atleast in reception alone?

We stayed here for 3 days during a visit to Auckland. The apartments are very close to the airport and adjoining the main freeway which is ideal if you need to be on the south side of Auckland.
The 2 bedroom unit we had was clean and modern, but due to a strange quirk in the design the occupants in the 2nd bedroom have to go through the 1st bedroom to reach the bathroom, which can be a nuisance. Although the internet was included, there wasn't much data included and if you watched a movie or two online you could be in for a nasty surprise when you leave.
Other than that a reasonable place to stay... 3 stars.

Room Tip: If you have 2 bedrooms make sure that theres bathrooms or shared access.

Surprised to see comment of insufficient data as we dont impose any real limit. The first automatic allowance is 1G up to a maximum of 10G.

This hotel/apartment was quite a nice surprise. We needed to stay someplace close to the airport and it was charming and spacious. You get so much for what your dollar. There is a full spread of food items for breakfast and even milk in the fridge. There was a bed in the very large main room, a bed in another bedroom and also a master bedroom with the bathroom attached. Having the washer and dryer (and soap supplied) meant we went home with suitcases full of clean clothes which was awesome. Peter, the owner/caretaker was so helpful and kind and he even drove us to the airport for our flight and let us stay later than check-out because we had no vehicle and no place to go until our 3 pm flight. I would highly recommend this hotel/apartments. Very, very clean and quiet. A short walk to the north of the hotel there was a vegetable market where we picked up yummy strawberries and some eggs and other assorted veggies for snacks.
