Recent guest reviews

Super handy to the airport for an early AM departure the next day. Staff very friendly. It was a cold night and our room was quite cold. Space heaters helped some. All in all acceptable for what we needed but not the most comfortable place we have ever stayed.

We chose this motel because it was close to the airport for our morning flight. The location is good. Restaurants are just across the street. And the Auckland tour bus stops next door at the Holiday Inn. We spent 2 nights here.

We stayed here for one night in a 2 bedroom family unit. We found this unit very clean and comfortable. The parking was not good, cars are parked everywhere. There was a lot of road noise from our unit. It is very convenient if you have an early flight to catch as it is only 10 mins away from the airport. Another positive is that they run a shuttle bus to and from the airport.

We stayed for one night on a stopover. Room was good but be weary that 2 twin beds means 2 single beds. Loved the recliner chairs as we simply wanted to relax. Bit noisy as our room was close to the main road. Great customer service and the free 24/7 shuttle from and to the airport was a real bonus.

Hotel rates good for area, staff extremely helpfull. Appartment well layed out and well stocked with essentials for cooking. Appartment clean, internet free, fast and reliable. Hotel provides free pick up and delivery back to airport which excellent.

We stayed 1 night prior to catching an early international flight the next morning. The free shuttle to the airport is great, this is a good service and they arrived to collect us within 15 minutes of phoning. The bed, pillows and sheets were awful! We got about 2 hours sleep as the bed and pillows were incredibly hard and uncomfortable. The sheets were extremely noisy! Spacious bathroom however, we were in a disabled room and the floor/bath mat got VERY wet even with the curtain pulled. Probably wouldn't stay here again.

Booked for three for one night. Arrived around 8pm with a room on the ground floor arranged. Staffs at the counter are nice. Parking space limited, no free breakfast, limited free wifi. Room big enough for three, but look a little bit old. Bathroom big, spa available but not good to have shower at the same place. Besides, no convenience store around. Otherwise, it is ok to stay if you will take the morning flight.

BKs is a very convenient motel to stay at if you are leaving from Auckland Airport. They allow you to leave your car there for 2 weeks (longer and you pay). They have a great shuttle service to the airport and helpful staff. Rooms are good sized and clean.

We were impressed by this motel. The staff were very helpful and friendly and our unit was spotless and comfortable. Of six motels and hotels we've tried in the Auckland Airport area I rate this motel highest in these respects. However, its location does mean there is road noise until after midnight. It's fantastic that you can leave your car here for up to 14 days at no extra cost. Somehow a window in our car was left partially open when our car was moved during our absence but the staff gave us a towel to deal with rain that came in.

We stayed here after getting off an international flight, and had hoped to fall straight into bed and sleep. Unfortunately we arrived early morning and the very cheerful cleaning staff were happily going about their daily cleaning tasks with their supply store right outside our room! This meant we had people coming and going, calling out to each other, laughing and chatting. It was normal noise, but so not what we wanted! If you are checking in for an early morning sleep, request a quiet room away from the road and the cleaning store.
