“Not just an airport hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013 via mobile

I stayed here thinking I'd have one night near the airport before finding a proper place to stay, I was presently surprised with what I found.

The owner picked me up from the airport at 2am and told me about the area on the way back, the owners are very friendly and make it a great place to stay, they know everything about the area and are happy to share it.

The hotel has a massive comfortable lounge area with sofas and dining tables, its kept very clean.

I'd defiantly stay here again.

Very nice couple that run this homely lodge. The rooms were quite big and comfortable, we just came form backpacking in Fiji and the room felt like 5 star to us. They offer a $5 transfer to the airport that beats the $20 - $30 taxi.

剛剛到Auckland 機場,老闆就準時來接我到旅館,其實當時已經是晚上了。他很熱情和向我講解當地的事情。我很喜歡這時有游池,Spa ,地方也相當潔淨,我最喜歡廚房不但清潔用品也很齊全。我離開Nz 前一晚也住這些,這是貪他的接送,不用安排太多,很可靠。

This is a great stopover.

We booked here as we were originally due to fly out early next morning & the Lodge is close to the airport. Scott kindly picked us up & dropped us off at the airport.

The lodge itself is old but clean and definitely has everything you need in a short stay. Scott is welcoming and kind, helpful & informative.

I would definitely stay there again. Thanks Scott.

The lodge isn't much to look at from the outside and on first appearances, it does look like it could do with a bit of maintence, however inside it is very clean and inviting. We were greeted by the owner, a lovely lady who quickly checked us in even though we were a few ours early, she also upgraded our room to one with a bathroom for no extra charge. The hotel offer a shuttle service to the airport which is $5 per person and unlimited internet which is $7 per person - which I think is very reasonable - we were able to download a few movies and tv programmes from iTunes to watch on the plane, as there was no cap.

The lounge area is lovely, big comfy seats, wood burning fire, large tv and dining area, they also offer a book exchange and plenty travel guides which is handy. There is a nice swimming area and jacuzzi (which we didn't use as it was cold and rainy in Auckland) but it looked lovely. The kitchen was well maintained and we were able to cook our own dinner. The lodge is also located conveniently within 5 minutes walk of a bakery, a few restaurants and a store.

The rooms are a nice size, clean, alarm clocked provided and nice shower. There was also tea and coffee making facilities.

The only small gripe we would have is that we booked our airport shuttle for 7.30am and in fact we didn't leave the Lodge until just before 8am - Scott the other owner had already left to take other customer to the airport. His wife didn't apologise and explained he would be back in ten minutes, but it was nearly 30 before he arrived - we were very close to booking a taxi ourselves. When Scott did arrive he was very apologetic and got us to the airport ASAP, the hosts are lovely, but I would say as a piece of feedback - if you agree to take guests at a certain time, especially when they have flights to catch - stick to the schedule or rearrange the time. This late drop off meant we were caught in all the major check in traffic and had to rush through to departures.

In all and all, I Would still highly recommend this place. Great for a one night stay before flights :)

Confortable bed, clean swimming pool, 24hrs SPA, unlimited WIFI(only 7 dollars) well equipped kitchen and free tea and coffee. I can stay in the living room the whole day after I checked out. Scott will pick you up from the airport whenever you arrived, and give you some valuable information about traveling in New Zealand.

This property nickles and dimes you for everything! Airport pick-up is charged at $5 a person and Internet is charged at $7 a day per person.
Another curiosity: once you check-out (STRICTLY at 10am) you must be completely OFF THE PREMISES. They won't even allow you to sit there and wait for your flight and will even charge you ($2 per bag) for luggage storage if you need them to keep it for you for anything more then 2 hours.

This could all be tolerable if:
1. All or most other properties in the area were doing the same; and/or
2. their prices were much cheaper then other properties around the airport.

Based on our personal experience (we paid $69 for a double room), neither 1 or 2 above are true. I suggest you look elsewhere and do not compromise on:
1. FREE airport hotel pick-up and drop-off; and
2. FREE WiFi internet
There are plenty of properties who will offer you that in the area for the same price. The market for accommodation around Auckland airport seems very competitive so make the most of that as a consumer of travel services.
