“Fantastic service and room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

We stayed here on a one night stopover through Auckland Airport. We landed at about 8pm and I called the motel and they were there to pick us up within minutes.
The lovely lady who picked us up was the co-owner and drove us to the reception desk where we checked in with her husband and after we checked in the lady was waiting to drive us the 100 metres to our room.
They had the key and room ready for us so check-in was a breeze.
The room was spacious and fairly new and had a luxury bathroom with a fantastic hot shower with great pressure. Just what we needed after a few weeks of travel.
The bed was comfortable with nice clean and new linen.
The room had a kitchenette which we didnt use but had plenty of utensils and kitchen stuff to make a simple meal.
We requested a ride to the airport at 430AM and without having to remind them, there was someone waiting with the van when we came downstairs bright and early.
We didnt have to check out, the van driver (who was so bright and cheerful for 430AM) just took our key and said thats all we had to do.
We arrived at the airport on time and feeling refreshed after a good sleep in the comfy beds.
I would stay here again without hesitation. The lovely new rooms are worth coming back for and the friendly service definitely helps.
The only thing I would change is maybe have a jug or bottle of water in the fridge.

We stayed here in February on a lay over on our way (over and back) to the Cook Islands. The rooms are comfortable and look just like in the pictures. The pickup from the airport is free and very easy.
We lost my son's toy 'Grover' on the way over to the cooks, we were sure we had left it in the motel room on our haste to get to the airport in the morning. On our way back from the cooks a few weeks later we asked about the toy and the manager said that he would have a look for us in the lost and found. He did not have any luck but said that he would have a better look in the morning. The only problem was that we were leaving first thing and did not have a chance to see him again, but we were very pleasantly surprised to find a delivery from them in the next a few days later to our house in Australia. We were very happy (especially our son) to see that they had indeed found 'Grover' and sent him back to us 'FREE" of charge. That if definitely 5 star service, thank you very much.

This hotel is about 10mins from the international terminal. A free shuttle service is a nice feature and the staff were very accommodating. The hotel seems pretty new - maybe 10yrs - and the rooms are spacious and well-appointed. It's a serviced-apartment layout with a sink, some cooking implements, a stovetop, a good size fridge and (I think) a microwave. Quiet location. The bed was large but, for me, pretty uncomfortable. I could feel the springs in the mattress. Overall, a good place to transit.

Room Tip: Room on the ground floor avoids having to lug heavy suitcases up the stairs.

We booked a two room apartment on the way out of NZ. It was well appointed with modern decor. I stayed in a one room apartment on the way back. Very clean and well appointed. Pick up from the airport was prompt and our drivers on all transfers were very friendly. I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: My tip is there is a diary just two minutes walk down the road for supplies.

Work booked me in one of the apartment rooms (Deluxe 2 bedroom family unit) up the back for a few nights. Rooms were quite spacious, and there was plenty of room each of the two rooms that the work colleague and I had. The common area had a decent amount of space to spread out too. The TV reception was pretty average. There wasn't too much traffic noise or anything either.

As has been noted, the shuttle service is very good, and I found the staff were generally very helpful too.

In terms of the location, it's very close to the airport, but there's not a lot around if you want to get food etc without access to a car.

We had an overnight stay in one of the older units. Not the most attractive looking place from the outside. Older room, with some parts showing sign of wear and tear. Friendly owners. Free shuttle a definite bonus. Very odd shower - very high off the floor and quite slippery. Very ordinary TV reception. Very comfortable bed - one of the better we had slept in. All in all, a mixed bag, but suitable for an overnight stay. PS - Room faced west and there were no fans so initially quite warm.

Stayed here for 1 night recently when my flights were postponed due to bad weather ! The rooms were very big, nice and clean and new . The only issue was the rock hard beds, this is my pet hate when it comes to hotels/motels etc, gotta get the bed right, if your guests don't get a decent night sleep they won't be coming back . As with most Kirkbride Rd properties they have a reliable free airport which is always appreciated. Good service form the reception, if they had softer beds I would stay again.
