Recently we stayed overnight at the Poenamo Hotel along with a group of friends. This accommodation was chosen for convenience, as the function we were attending was within walking distance. The rooms were very basic, tired and in need of a paint and makeover, however we had no complaints about the beds as they were very comfortable and the towels...

Booked again this year as last year was great, this year downgraded to a studio room. Room is tiny, but comfortable. Showers are great, kitchenette is rubbish - don't even get a cloth to wipe things down. Room was warm and cleaned each day. A good priced room for what you get.

This hotel may be a little on the old side but it quite adequately meets the expectations of a 3 star hotel. I found the staff friendly and the hotel was perfectly located for my requirements. It doesn't need air conditioning - hey we are in New Zealand - and the noise from the attached bar and restaurant is tolerable.

Stayed here for 1 week with my family. The room had a kitchenette and bathroom - was very spacious. Recently refurbished and was nice and clean and modern. The only issue I had was that there were no windows to open so whilst in the room I had to leave the door open, even at night as it was hot....

The location is good. Next to the hotel there is a pub-restaurant and an indian restaurant named Mr India. The service was professional. When I needed a taxi, they arranged everything from the reception.

Arrived just after check in time to a very friendly guy at front desk, very helpful. The facilities for 7 of us were good and we enjoy our stay here. Very close to good restaurants and only 10 minutes to the CBD. Quiet even though close to the motorway.

Stayed here for overnight trip to Auckland. Great location, easy access to and from motorway and close to Albany shopping mall. Had a room with 3 single beds, downstairs with a kichenette, shower and toilet. Room opened up to swimming pool and spa area. Bar was on the other side of the pool but we didn't use it.

The Poenamo hotel is a small friendly establishment with lovely members of staff. If you are traveling as a family this is not the place for you but more a place to crash on a lads weekend. The rooms look out onto a small swimming pool. But do not be fooled as on the other side of that is a...

Checked in and got great service at the front- first room was over sanitized so the clerk was happy to move us to a new room which was much better. Clean but linens and carpets were a bit worn out. Location is easy drive to Auckland- without a car this would probably be a poor location for seeing the sights
