Stayed in a 2 bedroom room. Very spacious, comfortable and clean, its well equipped with a kitchen and all the utensils. Bonus was the washing machine and dryer. Looks close to the road but can not hear a thing its quiet and well placed.
With the Novotel Auckland Airport starting to charge ridiculous amounts for a room, it was time to find somewhere new to stay after the long flight to Auckland. After scouting around online my sister found this establishment at under a quarter the price of the Novotel. That was a good start. Even better is that the location is easy to get to from the airport along State Highway 20A. It is located in an office development at the corner of Kirkbride Road and SH20A. Check in staff were very friendly and we were soon in the suite. We were not expecting much but were very pleasantly surprised by the quality and spaciousness of the suite. Kitchen facilities were very good (microwave but no oven), laundry facilities were very unexpected (washing machine and dryer) and very comfortable beds in the two bedrooms. The only minor downer was the bathroom being an ensuite to the bigger bedroom. Some will consider this a problem. The suite was very clean. They do provide some fresh milk for teas and coffees and a complimentary continental style breakfast is available. We would certainly chose to stay here when next heading to Auckland. NOTE: The intersection of SH20A/Kirkbride Road is currently being upgraded and there are diversion signs to Kirkbride Road Hotels from SH20A at Montgomerie Road. Do NOT follow these from the airport as you can still turn left into Kirkbride Road from SH20A.
Room was great a flat really,plenty f room. When we got there I asked for options to get to Eden Park for the Lions third test. I was basically told taxi and that it would be $25 so booked it and was told 40 - 50, and they wouldn't pick me up. Walked up to ATM at shops and saw to Lions fans at the bus stop. Using public transport is easy, don't be talked into a taxi. Go left out of suites, walk 300 yards to bus stop outside shop. Pay $3.50 one way to Onehunga Train Station. Get on train to Bri? Which is town centre or change at Newmarket for Kingsland and the stadium. Dead easy got us back as well.
I was pleasantly surprised at the well appointedness and economy of this complex. Full kitchen excepting oven, laundry in each unit. Good parking and excellent location. Quiet. Be aware that these are non serviced apartments so you won't get your beds made or towel replaced daily though staff will come in and turn off the power points and close the shutters. But I think its worth the economy for business trippers. Be aware that if you stay in a downstairs unit you will easily hear the plumbing from the upstairs units as the plumbing is not insulated. I also found the wifi lacking. That said this is now my accommodation of choice when working in this area of Auckland
The hotel is located in a business park around 3 miles from Auckland International Airport. The receptionist was friendly and helpful, providing basic information about the unit and surrounding amenities. Inside the unit, you will find a smart TV, free wifi, cooking facilities and two bedrooms which will comfortably accomodate four adults. Only one bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, so unless you are a family or close friends, you may want to consider this aspect. The unit was comfortable and quiet, with all the facilities that yo would be likely to need. I would not consider this a suitable base for tourism.
Friendly host. Bed was very hard. No Sky tv. Would recommend a upper floor room. Lots of roadworks nearby but close to buses. Although the site states there is an airport shuttle. They will only take you to the airport at a cost of $10 per person.
the motel website has a floor plan of the suites. the ground floor suited us well. i had a single room, my companion a double room. the bathroom opened from her room. when booking the owner pointed out this and checked if this would be okay with us. clean, tidy, easy access from the city and to the airport the manager, jerry, was attentive and helpful
I was forced to stay here on two separate occasions for work. Overlooking the ridiculousness of the set up, it seemed what could go wrong would. Although the rooms are 'double' rooms, you have to go through one of the rooms to get to the toilet/shower, so lack of privacy might be an issue. We were subjected to just about everything breaking, from the iron and frying pan to cupboards actually falling off. There's little around to enjoy food wise and you're stuck in the middle of an industrial park and all the wonderful extras that come with that. For a cheaper price, I'd rather enjoy an evening spa at the place next door.
Yes I was more than a little unhappy for several reasons. About 14 stairs led to our room. Glad I can climb 14 stairs with heavy luggage."Breakfast included" was a loaf of dumpy white bread - not kidding! OK sliced white bread. Airport shuttle on web site is not to pick you up - only to drop you off. $5 a person, cash only. The guy calls his buddy at Beset Western ( Comfort and best Western - are you reading this?) and when buddy arrives he raises the price from $20 to $25. Location is an industrial park with a lot of construction currently. To be fair, I will say that the washer and dryer worked well and the room was clean. Stay in town and take a taxi or Uber. Glad I only booked one night after our arrival from US.
The apartments are exactly as they appear in the photographs on the website. I found my apartment to be spacious and tidy. The proprietor, Jerry, was very accommodating. Prior to my stay, I had been emailing him to let him know that I would be arriving after traveling for more than 21 hours. I had requested an early book-in. Jerry advised that on the day on my arrival, he would look as to whether he could get me an early check in. (My flight was due in at 5:55 am - it is very difficult to find a place to stay when your flight arrives so early, you've been traveling for so long, and you are too tired to drive.) I arrived at the apartments at 7:30 am, and waited for the office to open at 9 am. Jerry remembered our email conversations, and set to finding me a room. Thankfully, he had a room available, and I was able to check in early. I was impressed with the size of the apartment. I had been traveling for a total time of 24 hours, and this apartment felt like a special treat at the end of it all. It contained all the necessities. I was able to shower, wash and dry my clothes, cook, and blob in front of TV. If you are traveling on a long-haul flight, consider contacting Jerry at Comfort Inn and Suites directly. My advice is to call in at the Countdown supermarket in the airport area, 1 John Goulter Drive. It is a very handy location, and is open from 6 am to 12am - excellent for the long-haul traveler to shop for food and convenient items. Comfort Inn and Suites Kudos Mangere is just down the road from the airport. I liked the location, as it was close enough to drive to after a long flight, but far enough away so you didn't hear the constant airport noise. I would definitely recommend these apartments for long-haul travelers, business travelers, couples or solos. If you are traveling as a family, and are looking for a place to rest before you head out on your adventure in NZ, then these apartments would suit.
