Devonport is a great spot in Auckland, and we stayed there overnight in summer in order to take a ferry trip to Waiheke island. It is a short walk from the motel to the local restaurants, and to the ferry. The owners seemed to be on holiday during our 1 night stay, and those standing in didn't seem to have much local knowledge (I assume this was just a temporary situation). The two units out the back are comfortable and quiet, and the back garden is very pleasant. We had no noise and slept very well. Parking is a bit of a problem for a "motel". We were okay parked overnight on the street outside, but parking on the street is P120 so leaving the car there all day would be a problem (there is only space for 2 cars off-street, one being the owners). However, there is plenty of free parking outside the ferry terminal for those going to Waiheke Island. WiFi signal was a bit weak in the unit, but worked reliably for me okay.
