Good location , poor conditionPosted Dec 5, 2017
Motel in state of disrepair..... owners maybe working on this? Soap dispenser falling off wall. Kitchen area rotting away. Room unclean. Beds however were comfortable and clean. Staff polite but did not email out receipt as promised. Having to follow this up.

I was only there for one night but would work well if you’re planning to stay for a couple of nights. I was looking for simple, cheap accommodation, but this place was also spacious, comfy and had great location (very close by to the beach & shops). Would definitely recommend for anyone planning to stay in Takapuna for a few nights.

Convenient to TakapunaPosted Nov 22, 2017
Friendly reception staff but everything a bit tired in room. Bed comfortable enough but snoring from adjoining room a little disconcerting! Not the fault of the management but a little more sound proofing needed!!

This was close to the beach and quite consideringPosted Nov 18, 2017
Cons: Knock it down and start again
10.00 o'clock at night and a stranger entered our room had the room key from reception ( they had given him the wrong key ) no apologies at all from staff. Room was filthy & dated ( I don't mind but mold every where) I even considered sleeping in the car that's how bad it was !

Overnight for a hospital appointmentPosted Aug 19, 2017
Pros: Location to the North Shore.
Cons: Renovations need to be completed.
Location: Acces to all that the North Shore has to offer.
Chosen for the closeness to the North Shore Hospital the motel's picture looked very good on the Expedia Site. Unfortunately or fortunately depending on how you view it the motel is in the process of a much-needed renovation, but still letting out rooms. As a result, the owners are somewhat distracted overseeing the renovation and although on site you may have to wait for them to respond. The renovation also means that certain of the advertised facilities are not available at present. The available accommodation reveals why the renovations are needed. Once completed the location and facilities should be much better than currently available, however, I cannot recommend the accommodation at present.

Great location and good for a one night stay.Posted Aug 17, 2017 on Wotif
Pros: The location
Cons: The room could do with renovating, especially the shower.
Location: Close to beach, shops, dining options. A few minutes to motorway if you are heading into the city.
This hotel is in a great location close to beach, shops, dining options. However it is badly in need of renovations. Hotel staff were very pleasant.
