Positive Reviews

Useful location for getting around the area

Many previous guests have been happy with the motel for its location. Within walking distance of dining and shopping options – including the popular Sylvia Park shopping centre – the property is also a short ten-minute drive from Auckland city centre.

Free parking and Wi-Fi a bonus

Thanks in part to both being free to use, the accommodation's on-site parking and Wi-Fi were largely appreciated by former visitors. The parking was labelled as secure with ample spaces available, while the Internet service was deemed reliable for the most part.

Accommodating and welcoming staff

According to the sentiments of most, the staff members are amongst the best facets offered by the motel. In general, past guests have claimed that the service was nice and cooperative.

Negative Reviews

Rooms showing their age

On a somewhat regular basis, recent visitors were left disappointed about the standard of the accommodation's rooms. The rooms were described as dated and in need of updating, with the private bathrooms especially highlighted in that regard.

No in-room air conditioning

Along with reportedly missing certain other features such as kitchen utensils, the omission of air conditioning was especially criticised in relation to the lack of amenities with the motel's rooms. As a result, previous guests have noted that the rooms can get overly hot and stuffy during warmer climates.

No-thrills option

Based on overall feedback, the simplicity of the accommodation was seen as one of its biggest weaknesses. From no recreational spaces to the exclusion of laundry facilities, the basic nature of the property was criticised at times.
