“3 weeks free car parking”
Reviewed 25 December 2013

We stayed one night in a budget room prior to international travel. The room was very basic but adequate. No Sky TV but free wifi for one hour, which was adequate for us and a good bonus. We asked for a quiet room and so were not near an entrance door. One disadvantage was we had to climb several steps up into the budget area which wasn't easy with heavy bags. The shuttle service was on time to take us to the airport, though there is only one choice at 10am as that's checkout time, so the last shuttle. Car parking is not out of sight, so hopefully our car will be safe, though they asked for our insurance company on check-in which was ominous! One excellent point for this motel is that parking is free for three weeks.

Hi Judy, thanks for your comments. The complimentary WiFi is for 4 days or 200mb which
ever comes first. sorry you went up to your room using the stairs, as you can get into every
room in that block without using the stairs. There are 3 entrances into Block A and the 2 off them
have no stairs. We dot advertise Sky TV but have a good selection of channels on FreetoView.
The shuttles runs 24 hours per day upon bookings to and from the Airport for flights.
Kind regards
Lou

When I booked over the phone, after seeing a special offer online, the receptionist was extremely understanding and helpful. I was nervous about being an older woman alone in a strange area returning to the room after dark. She made sure that I had a room where I could park my car right outside the door. The studio room was spacious enough for me with a very large bathroom area, and all was spotlessly clean. Every staff member I encountered was helpful and friendly. Decor a little older, but cleanliness is the main thing with me. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel and will stay again. Thankyou for making me feel safe and welcome :)

If you are expecting a nice place to stay....do not go here. The room has a musty smell the beds are small and the place is run down. It is more like 1.5 star. The area is not very good. No internet access available, you have to travel to a small shopping center to use wifi.

Room Tip: There are better hotels in auckland.

I have been expecting this review the customer arrived and without seeing the room demand a free upgrade unfortunately we were full and were not able to do so
we were told that bad feed back would be placed on tripadvisor
We are rated 3 star plus and as you will see from our other reviews are customers are happy staying with us .
We offer free wifi for all our guests
we have invested just under $500,000 dollars refurbishing the property
it is a shame that some people feel they can use tripadvisor as a means to pressure accommodation supplies into giving them a better room at no costs

This older-style, well maintained property offers a fantastically priced stay, excellent service, superb staff and a secure, family atmosphere.

We arrived on Friday night (Saturday morning due to delayed flights, around 2:00am!) and made use of the free airport shuttle. The receptionist/driver on duty was just a lovely, warm and friendly girl whose name I wanted to include in my review but I cannot remember! She was working the graveyard shift on Friday night, 6th December. Our check-in was super-quick and easy, meaning we got into our room in no time at all.

We were provided with a voucher for a free breakfast, and a code for the wi-fi - I think we received this because we booked through the hotel's website - great bonus!

Our room was basic, as we expected, but immaculately clean and tidy, with all the features you need for a short stay. The ceiling fan was lovely, the bed was comfy, the shower had great pressure, the bathroom was clean, the room was quiet, the flat-screen TV was an unexpected bonus!

We did partake in the continental breakfast, which was great. Coffee was good, cereals and toast fresh. The last looking after the breakfast on Saturday morning was also very friendly.

When we checked out we asked staff at the reception about a cab to the city, and she kindly asked another group if we could share their cab, halving the price. This worked out very well and we were very thankful.

The reception has a great selection of brochures and information, as well as well-stocked vending machines for 24hour refreshments.

I couldn't have been happier with the value and level of service provided by Oakwood Mannor. Highly recommend for your stay close to Auckland Airport :)

A prompt pick up service was provided from the airport to Motor Lodge that made this a good choice for an overnight stay between plane trips. It is an isolated area with few restaurants so it was more convenient to walk to the supermarket and cook, the menu at the Motor Lodge was not inviting. The one and two bedroom apartments were spacious with plenty of room to relax and eat at a small table and rooms were very clean. It is nothing exceptional but just a good reliable place to stopover for a night. The location is very quiet which makes it for a sound sleep.

Room Tip: The one and two bedroom apartments are good value

Hi Eleni21
Thank for taking the time to put a review on Tripadvisor for us .
We have a new chef starting soon and I am sure he will want to change the menu .
You may see some changes if you are able to stay with us again in the future
As you have noticed the one and two bedroom units are the best value
I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to seeing you again
Many thanks

Tidy, clean, basic. This was all we were expecting and was all we needed and this is what we got. Would probably stay again. Was an extra bonus that we got this room through fly buys points, so cost us nothing to stay here.

Hello Melnotes
My apologies for the noise problem when you were staying we had a stag party group staying with us in the same budget rooms as you were in and they had to be asked to keep the noise down repeatedly .
The beds are new and quite firm but needless to say not to ever persons liking .
We hope to be able to provide a better experience when you next stay with us in the future
