Stayed here for 2 nights. Room was adequate, reasonably clean. Bathroom and shower leave a bit to desired, mouldy ceiling in bathroom. I understand the motel is being renovated, but doesn't appear to be a price difference between the non-renovated roo s and the renovated rooms. Close proximity to the airport and free airport shuttle is a plus though.
We stayed here for one night as a transit out from New Zealand. Sadly we hardly slept as the place was noisy with loud laughter and talking from a group till the very early hours of the morning. The room also had a wet damp smell coupled will a smell of cigarette smoke. On the plus side we we provided with excellent transfers to and from the motel.
Stayed April 2017. It was awful, disgusting and not a very nice place at all. The shower was full of mould and the toilet door had a very big hole, the towels did not feel very clean. I would usually just say ooh its just a bed for the night as I was flying out early the next morning but it doesnt even deserve that. I left hours earlier to the airport as the people next door came in the middle of night and made a racket of a noise.
0/10. Do not stay! We had pre booked for 1 night only (thankfully) and paid $150 for a really ordinary, run down room. When we entered reception, the first thing I noticed was the huge, grose stains on the customer seats. I thought that ifthis was the amount of effort they put into appearances, what will the room be like!! The lady at reception has a non approachable persona. The room was one of the worst we've stayed in. The newish, cheap shower had no soap holder, the vanity basin is so large that it left no room for anything else. The "wardobe" had no hanging rail in it and the bed quilt had already been removed prior to us arriving and left on the floor of the wardobe. Basic amenities, no microwave, 1 kettle and typical tea bags and coffee. Carpet felt...sticky under foot and the walls are so thin that we could hear the lady next door arguing. We slept with our t-shirts over the pillows as we decided the whole experience was pretty dodgy. Glad to get up early the next day and leave. Stay elsewhere. I have read all the negative reviews and think we got away pretty well. Would never go back.
We booked a room four months in advance for the Adele concert at Mt Smart Stadium and paid $300 for one night. ( It was a 15 minute drive to the stadium which was fine.) The inn is located opposite a large cemetery and is very utilitarian in appearance, The room was spacious but everything was just a bit tired looking and there were some parts which needed a thoroughly good clean, eg the shower, tiles, window ledges, corners. The beds were firm / comfortable.
Good location but not a place I would recommend as felt grimmy. Curtains old and did not shut out the light. Curtains falling off rails. Windows were missing handles. The place was very noisy with paper thin walls. Well over priced. I will not be staying there again .
We have stayed at Silver Oaks Inn a couple of times in the past, importantly knew where to go & how to get there! What a pleasant surprise, Now under new management the place has been refurbished to a very good standard. Staff a pleasure to deal with from booking to our visit. As before, we were able to leave our car there during our absence, they kindly took us to the airport where we got the Sky bus into the City in order to board a ship. On our return we flew into Auckland, & they again provided an excellent service,We again stayed the night there,so we could drive home refreshed.
An Australian colleague booked this thinking that 3* in NZ was the same as international star ratings. The shower was mouldy and two of the internal doors had large holes in them, one of which had been patched with magazine covers! There is no excuse for this as internal doors cost $49.50 each from Bunnings or Mitre 10 stores. This is taking penny pinching too far.
Location was good for trip to Bruce Springsteen concert but there the favourable review ends. The unit for 4 guests was grubby on initial entry but on closer inspection was simply dirty. The shower was gritty and grey grouting.The floor standing fan was covered in dirt. Poorly equipped with just kettle and toaster and mismatched crockery. No microwave or cooking facilities. One flat pillow per bed and no spares. sheet and duvet on bed but no bedspread. Stark surroundings, cheaply and shabbily furnished circa 1980. Was very over priced for what was provided.
The room was a "renovated" room. They had painted and put in new kitchen bit and bathroom, plus flooring. Bathroom was clean and good. There it stopped. The windows were all mouldy, Half the furniture was stained, rusty and broken. None of the essentials were renovated. NO SOUNDPROOFING, it is the only place I have ever stayed where there are free ear plugs in reception. No airconditioning - there was a fan on a stand and so caked in dust you could not use it. A tiny 1 watt blow heater if you were cold. Called a motel room but no microwave or cooking facilities. The door lock was broken and I was told they were too busy to get it fixed. i was tired and needed to sleep or eat but it took four hours before they fixed the lock. When I asked to move rooms it was declined and I was told to go to another accomodation if I had issues. Do not stay
