If i had to rate my overall stay here for the night out of 10 it would be 3, considering the towels and flannels which appeared unclean and stained. The food & prices were terrible aswell as the waiter's mannerism and reception. The bed was fine but hardly got any sleep because of the noise from other rooms, and trucks driving past every so often in the middle of the night. Before we left we made sure the room was clean so we'd get our bond money back, but fuk that aint staying there again.
What a hole! Dirty, broken, run down and way over priced. One of our party had to refuse their room as it was basically uninhabitable. Don't go near the dining room which has all the ambience of a secure ward in a mental hospital.....but not as clean. The pic shows my face flannel before use, not that it actually got used. Don't under any circumstances book this motel, I am sure the women in our party were the only ones there not charging by the hour! Sleep in your car or get arrested and spend a night in a prison cell, you would be cleaner and safer!
We have stayed here twice recently in both a standard and superior room. Both times staff were helpful and friendly. Although a little puzzling to see a bond required to stay notice on reception desk, never come across this before. Thankfully we were charged this fee, presumably as we had stayed there previously many years ago. Both bookings were last minute, with the first being reduced as I had mentioned booking through a website and they said they would better the price. This was for the standard room. The room was on ground floor a short distance from reception. Room of a good size and in tidy condition, a little dated in appearance tho. The bathroom was very disappointing in the basin area. Needed quite a tidy up, very worn looking paint. The shower was good, great pressure. Area was quite noisy early the following morning with other people leaving and making a lot of noise, talking, tv or radio noise and slamming doors. Also several large truck starting up and leaving. We had parked at front of hotel, told we couldn't park down the side, not sure why tho, there was plenty of room and we could have parked immediately opposite our room. Not a big thing, but do wonder why. But I would say parking at the front under lights would allow more safety for vehicles. Second time we stayed a couple of weeks later, again a last minute decision and we couldn't get into another hotel at the time of night we arrived. This time in a superior room. So we thought it would be a lot nicer. No, it wasn't really any different in condition. Just a slightly more modern style of curtains and bedcovers. Room still very tired looking and bathroom area only slightly better. Leading us to believe there really is no difference for the extra paid. There is a bar and restaurant on site. Breakfasts were a reasonable price and an ok selection. Not overly large but still enough to fill me up. Many of the options included a coffee, tea or hot chocolate. There is also a breakfast bar with cereals etc. We didn't find the dirtiness others have mentioned. But it is a very average hotel.
This place has zero redeeming features. The service at check in was awful, the room was dirty and dated, sheets were dirty before I used them and were never changed...i slept on the bed instead of in..expensive wifi...and the worst ever meal and dessert from room service. Roof leaked on the first floor, water coming in like a hose. Stay well away, I was stuck here unfortunately moving was tricky...but will never set foot there again.
Dirty is a good word to describe this Hotel. Upon arrival we had to ask them to vacuum the lounge as it was covered in dirt & I don't think they have ever cleaned under our behind the beds, there were no towels in the room. Unfortunately it wasn't the only time we had to ask for towels, there was 2 other occasions they didn't leave any, and I'm not sure what they class as housekeeping but in the 10 days we stayed there the bathroom was not cleaned once. Whilst we knew we weren't staying in a 5 star hotel, I do think it's reasonable to expect a clean room & it was far from it
We traveled to Auckland for the World Masters Games from Aussie. There was 12 of us staying 10 nights in varying room sizes. One of our rooms was a "family room" it had lights hanging out of the wall by wires, other lights needed new bulbs, the grot and grime that was on the blades of the ceiling fan was disgusting. The microwave oven door had to be prized open as the button didn't work. All the curtains were filthy the sheer white curtains ( if that's what colour they really were) were mouldy, dirty and part of one was covered in a brown like substance. The oven was very old and we thought we may get electrocuted if we used it. Queen size bed with a single size blanket. The room service wasn't much good either.Our kitchen consisted of 3 knives and forks 1 small saucepan and a very old frying pan with a lid that wasn't attached to the handle, jug toaster. On booking we were told that they had a BBQ and that we would be able to use it but on arrival we were told no they didn't have one and we were not able to have one there. Who ever owns this place seriously needs to pick their game up as it potentially could be a very nice place to stay.
Paid $139 for a twin room on our last night in Auckland. The property looks great from the outside but the ground floor room needed a fix-up. The bathroom was peeling, needed a paint and had cracked door (as if someone had punched it in!) the beds were less than comfortable and the bed head of the single bed was resting on a power lead, pushing it partway out of the socket (a potential hazard). The bed head was also loose, so instead of waiting for it to fall off during the night, I removed it. There was no aircon, but there was an oil heater. We weren't game to use it, looked like a fire hazard - part of it had even melted. Earlier in our trip we paid a similar price and got better facilities, so think twice before booking here
Well I try really hard to find the good in all places but the Allenby Park is not a great hotel. I stayed on business during November and to be honest I tried to get away from the place but could not find anywhere else that was as convenient to my location. I have waited 6 months to review this hotel based on my reluctance to make a snap in the heat of the moment review that may have been unfairly critical. Time has not made me feel any less impressed by this place. The prices paid were frankly stupid for the room I had. Its a very basic place and if your only option for sleeping is the back seat of the car or truck then this may be a good option. I will not be drawn into the particular issues at this hotel but its fair to say that in my opinion it falls far short of the norm one would expect..
We stayed in this motel for one night which was one night too many. Charged $250 for a room barely worth $100. The bathroom was run down and very overdue for renovation. They had the ordacity to charge a $200 bond too, for what?, the place is a dump.
A less than a stellar experience. Way over priced, not clean, the linen was not replaced on the second night, when received (one towel each, 1 hand towel only and two face cloths for three people), the face cloth and hand towel were dirty - covered with eyeliner and foundation - YUCK. The bathroom was a shocker with mold on a section of the vanity, which was split and water damaged and a very worn tap is not hygienic. The shower had a large unsightly patch on it and the toilet was well past its 'use by date.' Having owned an small hotel I would strongly suggested owners address these issues if they are to retain clients or indeed grow their business. No recommendation from three regular hotel stayers!
