Lovely staff, tired motel.
Excellent location for beach, cafes in Hurstmere Road (I recommend JAM for breakfast).
rack rate a lot more than agoda rate.
internet at motels in NZ sucks - expensive and unreliable - this motel was no exception so make sure you get your own data SIM card on arrival.
“OK stay:helpful staff”
location space outlook
Basic in some ways: Tiny cheapskate TV, no sky sport 3 (which was playing the world cup), no common list of TV channels and the numbers on which they appear on the TV, vintage aircon (no instructions so difficult to get going and keep going), some maintenance needed, and like a lot of accommodation at all price levels: small bedside lamps look good but do not give enough light to read by for many people. But all the other aspects were perfectly acceptable.
“Could have had a radio, bigger tv for size of room”
Pretty ok but was pre charged $100 on credit card incase we used bar?. Really that was really excessive for what was in bar!,
“Very nice for the price”
Internet, pool, hotel staff
“Friendly helpful staff”
“A very tired smelly dowdy place”
The location to the beach, the staff, the staff
The place was too close to a very busy road, it was clean but very dated, lights didn't work, air conditioning only ran for a while then turned off, hot water only got to warm in shower so had to get out, no open window in bathroom and had a fan that rattled noisily and obviously didn't work, all the decor needs replacing it was like stepping back in time about 20 years. The trundler bed dipped so badly my daughter did not sleep etc etc. Other family members stayed here also and one room equipped with a kitchen didn't even have a dining table to eat at! Need I say more? This was,the only place available in Takapuna to book I wonder why?
clean,comfortable & helpful staff
Had an enjoyable 3 night stay, beds comfortable, place felt clean.
Had minor issue with access to fridge, being in cupboard, hard to open without injury to fingers.Thank You to helpful receptionist.
location,price, reception friendly
Good and would stay again and recommend but could be with a bit more effort cleaner for example sheets and pillowcases crisp and clean but grubby black cushion had been placed over the pillows also toilet could have been cleaner.

Friendly staff, spa in room, outside pool
The staff were very friendly and the overall stay was nice. Just the room needed a few touches up in some areas as they didnt look that great. The bed was uncomfortable. Possible if they can do the kitchen up a little and provide a little more kitchen facilities. But was a nice stay.
