I stayed here overnight whilst in Auckland for business, i left early as i couldn't wait to get out of the place. They clearly had never heard of a duster and there was a unhealthy odour of mould. The refrigerator was disgusting and had mould in it, not sanitary at all, the duvet had cigarette burns on it and there...

I only stayed for one night and that was one night too long. I arrived at 8:30pm and found my room (despite incorrect directions) and it was 12 degrees inside. The thermostat was set at 28 degrees but there was no sign of any heating. I tracked down an oil heater in the wardrobe but that was broken so I...

Room security is terrible with no security stays on the windows, insufficient lighting at back of building and no CCTV. Our upstairs room was broken into from the balcony and we had all our personal possessions stolen. We couldn't stay our last night but the owner refused to give us a full refund for that night.

I have stayed at this Motel for 16years up to 12weeks a year because it was convenient and I tolerated the noisy rooms, poor service, dirty rooms, TV channels, fridges and showers, internet (don't be fooled you pay extra for the internet and it is too slow to use and if you aren't in a room close to the office...

This motel is badly in need of renovation the decor is very dated. The housekeeping was pretty non existent, there were huge cobwebs everywhere. The shower head was broken and put together with cello tape like that would hold together in a wet area!! This place is very over priced for what is on offer.

The worst I have stayed in for years. Looks good from the outside. Great view over the golf course. Inside (should have taken my tent). If there was other accommodation available that weekend elsewhere in Auckland I would have walked out. Needs refurbishing. Holes in the wall. Nettings torn. Curtains hanging off hooks. Cables for the TV wrapped around wall...

Motel has free parking Check in/out was quick and easy. Room is very basic but very clean with a patio and view of the golf course. Rooms are provided with basic necessities for cooking. Located on the corner of two very busy streets - may be inconvenient for those wanting a quiet getaway because of traffic flow but is about...
