We only spent the one night as we travelled from Australia as a stoppover heading to Auckland. Little bit of a delay getting picked up at airport but not major, shuttle driver was very polite both on pickup and in the morning drop off. People at motel, receptionist and at the restaurant provided very good service. Room was at back...

A very pleasant one night stay for a conference. My suite was very modern with all the conveniences, and a very comfy bed. Rooms are well double glazed against the traffic noise, and the house bar is well stocked and friendly. I will definitely stay again

Stay here frequently. Always nice, always clean. The transfer from airport to hotel and reverse always prompt and friendly. Recently added and recanted a charge for shuttle which was a great review. My preference of place to stay, especially for airport transfers. Can't fault.

Though it was an overnight stay it was nice. The room looked to be near newly refurbished, with all the features I needed. The tonal colour schemes in the room were a nice surprise. The restaurant was good, with nice food and drink options. But note: rooms near the external stairs can be noisy due to foot traffic.

Stayed here twice on recent holiday about 9 days apart. Had 2 different rooms which were totally different. Both had great facilities, but the 2nd room (806) had a very cramped bathroom. Restaurant available but didn't try.

Arrived from a rejected accomodation, so at short notice was given an upstairs studio...king bed, spotless, warm, comfortable, roomy. The sunset was free from the balcony and the restaurant was yum! Highly recommend.

The property is less than 10 minutes from airport. The Gateway Executive 3 bedrooms are very comfortable and very spacious. Beds are very comfortable, heating and shower are both very strong. The shuttle was limited to certain number of seats so we ended up having need to depart the hotel 30 minutes earlier. Overall it is a decent place to...

We spend a night in the hotel untill our next flight. The hotel was ok. But way overpriced for the room we got. We had to pay for laundry, the bathroom was with a bad smell and the sheets were scratched.. for 130 dollars maybe we could have looked for something better.

This motor lodge is a short 5-10 min drive from the airport. We arrived past midnight and check-in was quick and friendly. We booked a premium 3 bedroom unit for 5 people. There are 2 bathrooms and the one in the hallway to be shared is so small and cramp compared to the ensuite bathroom. It was very roomy for...
