Stayed 7 June rm #6. Just the best service. This is my second stay with Grange Motel an overnight stay for an early morning flight out. I could have stayed closer to the airport but there is nothing in comparison to this motel. Thanks Pat

We recently stayed at the Grange Motel Papatoetoe for three nights . We had the friendliest welcome we have ever had at a motel, and the Motel was perfect. Bernie was warm and friendly, and the muffins were very welcome. We shall be returning again before long.

Our later than planned arrival seemed to be no problem. The muffins were warm as was the welcome from Pat. We have been to Auckland many times in the past but this was the first time we stayed here at the Grange Lodge. We cannot recommend this place more highly!

This would have to be one of the best motels for service we've ever stayed at, from the greeting and warm muffins on arrival to coming back late every evening and finding the curtains had been closed as well as the outside and porch lights turned on to welcome us back.

The lovely Bernie and Pat were so warm and welcoming when my sister and I passed through briefly on our epic NZ road trip. Bernie even had a plate of muffins waiting for us.
