“Great Pepole amazing atmosphere love it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2012

We had a problem with the booking which had nothing to do with the motel, but the people there were so friendly to fix it asap for us, they gave us an upgrade and a lovely room.

we stayed there for one night, its best if you are looking for a relaxing place away from the city noise, its 15 min from the airport and easy to locate.

Room Tip: call the hotel directly for reservation.

The photos you posted are outstanding - thank you very much indeed. What a shame you only stayed one night, we would've so liked to have enjoyed your company longer.

Got to the Grange Lodge Motel at about 2:30am and everything was in place as arranged. Lovely accommodation and super friendly helpful hosts. Made us feel SO welcome! We also got hot berry muffins fresh out of the oven when we went over to settle the account in the morning. definitely recommended!

We were a family of three adults and two children who were in Auckland for two nights. The muffins on arrival were a welcome treat as was the grassy area for the kids to run around on and Mack and Sunshine were also a big hit.

We had the family unit and it was perfect – room for all of us, the kitchen had everything we needed and the cot came with a teddy which was another extra touch that made the stay feel more like you were staying with friends or family than a paying guest.

Thanks Pat and Bernie for being outstanding hosts, the Grange Lodge Motel is now our family’s go-to Motel when in Auckland.

After a long flight from the USA, we just wanted to sleep and this motel was perfect. Pat was wonderful and even greeted us when we showed up after hours. The welcome muffins were exactly what we needed. I also liked the free wifi.

We stayed in this modern motel for one night in passing (driving from Northland to King Country) but could easily have stayed more. The room was spacious and well laid out. The owners really went the extra mile to make us feel welcome.

The location may not suit everyone - it's good for the airport, not so good for the CBD or North Shore - but this wasn't an issue for us.

Pat and Bernie are fabulous hosts and provided us with a very warm welcome upon our arrival in New Zealand. As someone else has mentioned, the muffins are particularly delicious. We stayed for only one night as we were heading south, but it was the perfect start to our time in New Zealand. Pat's recommendation for a local curry was also much appreciated.

We stayed here for week in early Dec. because it was convenient, now we will stay here whenever we are in Auckland, what a find!!
Pat and Bernie are two of the nicest people you will find and go out of their way to assist you if it is humanly possible and the muffins were to die for!!
The establishment is spotlessly clean and well maintained and it is obvious they pride themselves on its appearance, the unit we had was the cleanest unit I have stayed in ever and the beds were so comfortable.
It is easy to find and close to the Airport and easy to get to the city from , so ticks all the boxes there. We didn"t even notice the traffic sounds given there is a major road nearby.
All in all a peaceful haven in a busy city, run by people who obviously care for what they do.
Do yourself a favour STAY HERE
