My wife & I stayed here and The Owners & Managment were very friendly & Helpful. Our unit was spotlessly Clean & in a very peaceful Setting. Nothing was a problem to them at all & We would be very happy to stay here again. Very close to lots of places.
Thank you Mt Eden Motel.

Room Tip: Excellent Place to Stay.

We travelled with 3 young children and got a 2 bedroom unit.
The place was a little old, but quaint and well- maintained, with friendly faces at reception.

Inside, the fittings looked like they had seen better days, but cleanliness was more then acceptable and the unit was well laid out. The 2 bedroom units will sleep 5 easily on beds, with another 1 or 2 on the sofa bed if necessary.

There was some noise coming from the neighbouring units and for some reason, neighbours climbing their stairs made ours creak as well.

Location was slightly outside the city, but no more than a 15 minute drive. The place was, however, walking distance from a number of shops and restaurants.

There are half a dozen motels around Mt. Eden, most of them similar in price and facilities.

This one is set well back and up from the road, so it's quiet. Otherwise, there's not much to say about it. 30-40 years old. Average rooms, some with balconies. Good space for parking. Average reception.

A short walk from the bus route into central Auckland. So: convenient for a short stop-over, a very basic business visit, or an assignation.

We needed a really special location, one which was quiet, so we could recover from the long flight from UK, with good bus services into Auckland for sight-seeing, and also where we could take easy delivery of a hired campervan.
Our first-floor room 'in back', number 17, was nice and quiet, with a lovely view of the small garden complete with bird feeders, (husband a bird-watcher, so an added plus!), and beyond that the local tennis club with its Victorian club-house. Although the decor and facilities were a bit old-fashioned, this was more than made up for by having a sitting-room/kitchenette as well as a bedroom, and the peace!
Buses to the Waterfront in Auckland are less than10 minutes easy walk from the motel, and we found NZ bus drivers very helpful. The management at the Motel will point you in the right direction and there is further information in the room. Just beside the bus stop is Hee's Chinese Seafood Restaurant, for dine-in or takeaway, where lots of Chinese locals eat - great food.
The Motel is on rather an unusual site, but access is fine - though we had only a 2-berth vehicle. Our hire company, New Zealand Frontiers, (whom we can't recommend highly enough), delivered the van easily and we were able to get onto SH1 travelling North out of Auckland) without any problems from this location.
Finally, the price includes a continental breakfast, which was brought up to us the night before, (there is a fridge in the kitchen), so we could eat as and when we felt like it.
We stayed here for 3 nights and would be more than happy to recommend it - though if you want the high life and Auckland's attractions on your doorstep, this is not for you!

Not the best motel - very dated. Have not come across motel units with double beds for a long time. Decor still in 70s with facilities less than poor. Got the impression that guests were a burden. Also felt that is was about the owner rather than the experience of staying there.
Were not told of re-roofing works when checking in. One of our party was woken at 8:00am and asked to move their car for the workmen.
Only thing going for it was location - close to Mt Eden Shops. Suggest you only stay here if you cannot get another motel
