Everything provided in a clean and comfortable motel, little extra touches such as hot muffins ( tasty ) and big teddy bears ( pointless ) provided by the owners who obviously take a pride on their motel and make every effort to look after their guests. Unfortunately we were woken at 4.30 am by the neighbour in Room 9 taking...

Thank you very much for taking the time to review our motel and for your helpful comments. There is a great story on our website and our Facebook page you might like to read which explains why we have Teddies on each of the queen beds. Perhaps you might like to have a look as the story generally makes our...

My wife and I ended a three week New Zealand trip with a stay at Grange Motor Lodge. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by Bernie the owner and shown our room which was extremely clean, neat and tidy with everything we needed for our stay. We had booked a tee time at the Grange Golf Course, a private club...

Our one bedroom suite was spotlessly clean. The stainless steel sink & shower were sparkling. The towels were beautifully folded & the little extra touches such as yummy warm muffins were much appreciated. The owners live on site and are friendly & helpful. We only wished we had more than one night. Will stay here again.

Great motel. Very clean and spacious. Nice, big bathroom.We love the muffins baked by Bernie. Nice to have access to a little garden. Able to use the washing machine and detergent for free (really generous of Grange Lodge!) Fully equipped kitchen. There were books in the laundrette and DVDs you can borrow from the motel.

After a long haul flight we picked up our rental car and headed straight to Grange Lodge Motel where there were delicious fresh baked muffins waiting for us. Bernie and Pat were really friendly and the room was great, far bigger than we'd expected. We'd been in Asia for 5 months previously so this was pure luxury! The bed was...

Wow this place is terrific and the owners Bernie and Pat are top of the class as you can see by the wall in their office filled with award plaques PLUS their enviable service skills! This motel which is set in a native bush garden has an easy peaceful feeling and yet it adjoins quite a busy road. Bernie greeted...

What an unexpected pleasure it was to end up in this motel during the power cut in Auckland. From the moment Bernie answered the phone to our call where we were seeking a place to rest away from the power cuts, we just knew we were on to a winner. It is seldom that one receives such a warm welcome...

Being welcomed with a warm home made muffin and a friendly smile, personally walked to our room and treated like family, was a beautiful way to start our stay. There is a little road noise but it is minimal when windows are closed. The kitchenette has everything you need for a basic meal including pots and utensils, just a few...

Owners Pat and Bernie very friendly, helpful and enthused. Older property but well maintained and clean and fully equipped for self catering. Easy drive to the airport and the sights in Auckland, near a busy road, but very quiet. Well priced for the free laundry and wifi inclusions. Fresh muffins are provided upon check in. Would definitely stay here again.
