Stayed here in 2011, it was not the best experience. Stayed again for a night over Labour weekend 2016 and have to say it was a great experience. The motel was immaculate, everything very clean and comfortable. The new owners have done a wonderful job of creating a nice place to stay. Would recommend this Motel to others and will... More

We were offered wonderful homemade muffins upon arrival. We were also given a free upgrade to a larger apartment. The accommodation was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. Location was easy to find and sufficient parking. Nothing more to ask for. Highly recommended

This is by far the best place we stayed in. The motel owner is so friendly and helpful. He really makes you feel at home and personally guides you to your room. The unit itself is amazing!! Spotlessly clean And beautifully decorated. The comfortable beds with electric blankets was a big bonus. We definitely recommend this motel to everyone.

The service at this motel is impeccable! Every single day when we left, they came and did the dishes, made all the beds, did our washing, replaced towels and even folded the toilet paper! For a motel, this definitely exceeded my expectations. For having a family unit, we were very well equipped but the only thing I would fault is... More

Overnighted at Papakura Motor Lodge after flying in to Auckland. Welcoming owners. Room was comfortable, bed was great. The owner had turned the heating and electric blankets on for me as I arrived late, so I could jump into a warm bed. My room had a little kitchen which was perfect for throwing together some dinner and breakfast. In the... More

Accommodation unbelievably difficult for Aukland. Needing to be at the Airport at 4.30am we found the motor lodge handy to the airport. With low expectations we were delighted with our 2 bedroom unit. Reception was welcoming, and with 2 freshly baked muffins. The Unit was clean comfortable with a slight Japanese flavour.

We stayed for one night in this lovely motel. We were greeted by a very friendly, informative owner with hot muffins! The room was spotless, lots of room. Laundry facilities handy and only 5.00 for wash and dry together. The only place to stay if you have an early morning flight, it is only a 20 minute drive to airport.
