Value for money”

Fast check in/out; friendly staff; basic facilities for travellers available

I arrived at Alpers in the evening of 2nd March 2014 from Lake Taupo at about 7pm. I was greeted at the reception desk by a friendly staff who was generous with her smile. Check in process was very fast and easy. For the price I paid, I had expected a small room. But I was pleasantly surprised to find a spacious and comfortable room. I was also pleased to find that there was a self-service laundry facility in an outbuilding at the rear which was operated with coins. It saved me a lot of time and inconvenience of having to handwash my clothes. This is of course not a first class hotel, but certainly good enough for the average traveller.

I always enjoy staying at Alpers however my last visit was marred by a bird who was larking most of the night. This is no way the fault of the Lodge and was not even mentioned to them when I checked out. Otherwise all good

Friendly staff & clean rooms”

Convenient location + helpful staff.

I liked the hotel for its convenience, clean rooms and friendly helpful staff. It is also minutes walk from good restaurants and fast food. It is actually quite central in Auckland so it is great to have free parking at the property but unfortunately you have to contend with the very busy traffic at Alpers Avenue during rush hours. Also the selection of TV programmes could have been better...there is hardly any news channels. Breakfast is very basic and the same everyday, so you might as well skip it.

Motel in great location - staff very friendly ”

Room clean and spacious

The Alpers Motel was in a very good location for me I, I could walk to the shops in Newmarket and only a short distance by car for all my appointments. The staff were very friendy always willing to help. They were so obliging and went the extra mile to look after you. I will be back in Aucland in February and will stay with them again.

Public transport, comfortable & lovely staff

We stayed 2 evenings & felt relaxed. Abit outdated around the outside but nice and comfortable inside. Free continental breakfast which was a bonus but dinner was average for the price. Enjoyed the main but the rest was abit over priced. Over all, had a lovely stay there, will go again & do recommend the lodge to others-fair price.

Super Duper Location with excellent staff service”

Great location, Fantastic Staff , Super nice room

I really enjoyed my stay in this motel. We both live out of town and came to auckland for one night only. The location was in the heart of the shopping precinct and we were greeted by fantastic staff. the rooms were cleaning and modern. The only problem we felt was the textured ceiling which may or may not contain traces of asbestos. Could pay to get it checked by a professional. A little concerning if you have a health problem but should be ok if you don't stay there long term but just passing through. Will stay there again this week. Cheers.

lull in the bustle”

Tranquility, friendliness of staff, cleanliness

I was in Auckland for the first time having to do a huge amount in a small timeframe for work, and it was great to be able to unwind at the end of the day in such a clean and welcoming environment. On Saturday, I took ill, and it was awesome to be able to just lounge in the room doing some work in a comfortable and peaceful place close to shops, chemist and doctors yet without the noise from the streets.

Stayed at the lodge for 3 nights with a car. No problem with parking and did not have to pay rather than stay in a CBD hotel. Had the studio with a kitchen, very spacious room. Did not get to try the breakfast as it ends at 9am. Older building, bed not as firm, but amenities ok. I would stay here again.

Booked here despite some reviews. The large room was spotless, bed comfortable with what appeared to be new linen , towels also appeared new. Heat pump worked well. Nicely furnished. Building was old but this didn't bother me given the room was great. Only issue was reception not giving clear instructions about location of the room but not a biggy. It looked as though there was a lot of refurb going on- fresh paint smell. Would certainly book again as my room was great value in a excellent location- close to New Market.

The hallway walls were paper thin and we heard early risers leaving as they stood outside our door and had a conversation..... But for space, cleanliness and location it was pretty good 8/10

This was a wonderful spot just outside of the city center and close to Mount Eden It is an old style motel which was A fun throwback for us to stay in with our two sons in the family room. It had a very large master bedroom then a separate room with three singles and another area with a full-size refrigerator stove and dining spot. When the air conditioning unit which was not on when we got there but cool things down very quickly and was very adequate for the whole space Extremely clean and overall was a very positive experience for us

Lovely place ”

Pros - very handy location with lots of transportation options, rooms were very nicely done up, very good parking so long your car is not extremely large, staff who were friendly and attentive to your needs. Minor observations - there were separate hot and cold water taps in the toilet which could be embarrassing for a cold winter morning. The roads in the immediate neighborhood could be rather jammed up during the rush hours. All in all, it's a really lovely place and I had a very enjoyable stay.

So-so”

No, No, No... If you ask a leading question like this then you must provide a second question to balance it so you do not get a heavily biased and incorrect view.

I was disappointed that two lights did not work in our unit. I left a note for the cleaners/service personnel, but it was not actioned. Unfortunately we usually used the back door and only notified the front desk on the last night and as it was going to be a problem changing the ceiling light I said not to worry about it. I did not like that we had to sit on the bed to watch the television - it was too uncomfortable. Also the table and chairs under the television could be more comfortably arranged... The heater cord passed through a small hole in the counter top. It is my understanding this does not comply with the NZ standard. The hole needs to be large enough for the plug to pass through. The outside door below the stairs at the rear of the building was sometimes locked which meant walking back to the other end of the building to gain entry. If it needs to be locked then guests should have a key. (I have a mobility problem which makes walking any distance difficult so I try to make my walking as short as possible) The Steak from the restaurant was cooked to perfection although the size of the steak was fine, you could have been more generous with the rest of the meal... Even if the meal was priced to suit. We felt a bit uncomfortable being the only two in the restaurant - so we returned to our unit without desert. The staff were friendly and very helpful. There was enough parking, and entry/exit onto the road was ok. It is worth saying that I would not have said anything if you had not sent me a feedback form - although as mentioned above, I think you need to reformat your form and the email. I was a bit put out there was only a yes/no option shown in the email. Opening the link to yes brought me here... the No link went nowhere. ??? I would also have been happier to have a feedback form at the motel, rather than being pestered with emails not asked for. I deleted the first email (because of the yes/no option) and have been hit again with this one. Not good.
