Small but clean room, reception closes early, so we were given instructions on how to access our room which were very clear. However the internet is limited and you need a code to access it. They gave us the wrong code, meaning that I could not access the internet although I had to send an important work email with attachments.... More

We spent our final night in Tuakau because Auckland was fully booked, and were pleasantly surprised to find a lovely hotel in a very quaint and friendly village. The rooms are clean, modern and very well appointed, and the internet quite fast. We dined next door and enjoyed a wander in the village the next day.
