Very respectful and friendly hosts. Never been met at the car on arriving at a motel before. Showed us the rooms and explained the wifi. Some of the better wifi we have had in motels. Rooms are dated but seemed clean. Noted that they are refurbishing some rooms so perhaps all will be undated. The owner certainly try to keep...

I had stayed at Grange Lodge twice before - about a year between each trip to Auckland - so booked in again on my trip last week. Something terrible has happened! Although the gal at check in was nice and very hospitable my whole experience was bad. The old oh-so-lovely managers with such high standards are gone, the office is...

Stayed for a few days for business, was very wet on arrival and they met me with an umbrella to keep me dry to sign in! Very good service, and the room while a little dated it was clean and had everything I needed for a comfortable stay. You need a car as not much within walking distance, but a...

Unsure how Trip Advisor OR Qualmark can allow their names to be associated with this property. Do NOT pay for rooms upon arrival as refunds / discounts are NOT an option. Our Family Room was pre-booked and paid upon arrival and we soon discovered was already occupied ....... by cockroaches! Although addressed with the proprietors who promised to rectify the...

This motel is reasonable value. We had a family room and so we got a couple of bedrooms and a lounge for less that what you would pay for a studio room at the airport or in the city. But it isn't flash as you would get there. We stayed here because Auckland was fairly full. It was fine. Good...

We stayed here for one night, prior to our flight, hotel is solid 15 mins and 35-40 cab ride to the airport. I was under the impression it was closer. No food in area unless you want to take a sketchy walk Which I don't recommend. Ended up at a Chinese place and the other people in the place didn't...

In a bind for a place to stay for one night and this was the best place we could find. Not sure I would stay again. We were given the last room and the manager left after booking us. No staff over night. The manager did see to our needs before he left. The king bed is actually two twin...

Mould on the walls., grubby furniture and worn out linen.No lights the first night when a fuse blew as we turned the lights on. New owners apparently who said they are doing some upgrades. That place needs some major work. In a good spot for visiting family in South Auckland though

Awesome place to stay! The hosts bent over backwards to accommodate me and my family. The rooms were clean, warm and cosy. WIFI was awesome too no problems. Close to where we needed to be and the airport as well. Would definitely return again. Thank you for making our stay easy and carefree!@
