The Auckland Airport Kiwi Motel is value-for-money with free airport transfers, which is very much appreciated after a long flight. The rooms are comfortable and the motel rooms are all on the ground floor (so you needn't haul your luggage up stairs) open out to a pleasant garden, and are quiet. They have excellent TV reception, satisfactory Internet and good air-conditioning. They are located just opposite the strawberry farm and are a 20 minute walk from the beautiful Mangere lagoon and coastal walkway. The staff are helpful and professional. My only issue is that the hot water is inconsistent, and some rooms have bathrooms that need updating. Overall, I'd recommend staying here, and have stayed with them a few times.
Fantastic location, value and staff.. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!”
Booking online has its pros and cons. Arriving at Kiwi motel I was pleasantly surprised and happy. Upon arrival the staff were kind, respectful and extremely helpful. The room was perfect and had all amenities needed. The bed was comfy, the room was clean and I will be happy to stay there and recommend to anyone needing a place close to the airport. The shuttle bus was super convenient for my early morning departure. What a wonderful way to end my trip. Thank you Kiwi motel. I will be back again! ***highly recommended***
Warm friendly staff - good service”
This hotel is located in a great position for travel from Auckland Airport. There is nothing but milk in the fridge but there is a little shopping center within walking distance which seemed to have all wants covered. The staff are very helpful and the rooms are clean. The restaurant is a bit basic but it is also very reasonably priced. All up this is good value for money when you need a place to crash near to the airport or if you are doing the south of Auckland attractions with kids.
Good value for money”
the airport kiwi motel is near the airport and car rental companies. rooms are fully equipped, breakfast is basically ok, upgrade is easy and cheap. wifi works well in rooms and in lobby. wired lan including camera, microphone and headset is available in the lobby area.
Comfortable but preferred the Kiwi Hotel next door”
We stayed for one night at Auckland Airport Kiwi Motel before catching a flight the following morning. The room was large, comfortable and had a well-equipped kitchenette. However, we had previously stayed at the Auckland Airport Kiwi Hotel next door previously and thought that this was much nicer, and was around the same price including breakfast, which was not included for the motel. One small issue was that the hairdryer was located on the wall opposite the bed and nowhere near a mirror, which was a little awkward as it was fixed to the wall - of course, not something that should put anyone off going but I just found it a little strange! We made use of the free airport shuttle that was offered, which was fast and convenient to get to and from the airport.
Nice, Convenient and clean.”
It was a pleasant experience stay at Auckland airport Kiwi Hotel/Motel. It is very close to the airport, and offers free shuttle service to and from the airport. The room we stayed was spacious, convenient, nice and clean. The staff were kind and friendly.
Very reasonable comfortable room.”
This is a good basic motels. Despite being on a busy road it was quiet. You can extend your stay to 2pm for $50.00 if that's more convenient for the airport. The internet cost is $10.00 which is excessive but is offset by the cheap price of the room. Great place to stay if coming or going to Auckland. Helpful staff.
easy in and out”
I like the ease at being picked up and taken back to airport. There are buses to Auckland leaving outside the motel and the staff are always ready to help with your stay.
Handy to the airport but a car is a must”
I found myself at Auckland Airport with nowhere to stay for the night and I booked this motel online. The price was okay and the airport shuttle was useful but once I arrived at the motel, I realised I had made a bad mistake. Although there is supposed to be public transport - ie a bus-stop not far from the motel - in reality it is almost non-existent. I waited hours (literally) for a bus to the local shopping centre. I could have walked there faster. It was the same going back. So you really need a car if you are staying at this motel. The motel itself was clean and tidy and had everything I wanted, although I did not try the restaurant. A great place to stay if you have your own transport !
great for the airport”
I have stayed here before when flying in and out of auckland airport. The staff are great, rooms are clean and of a good size, regular airport shuttles. The restaurant serves a variety of meals for dinner at a very reasonable price. I bought the internet to use and it worked very fast in the rooms and it was cheap!
Decent motel with cooking facilities”
As we were going to catch a morning flight out of Auckland, we chose this motel given its low rate and proximity to the airport. It was surprisingly very spacious - 1 queen size bed and 2 single beds. It even came with cooking facilities and eating utensils. Simple breakfast (cereal, toast, coffee/tea/juice) was provided too. You may opt for a cooked breakfast at a minimal charge. Overall, very good value for a family stay.
Fantastic price with all that we wanted”
Because our stay in Auckland was short, the Motel provided a good base for our tripping around, and there wasn't anything that we thought we'd need, that wasn't available.
The motel and hotel are of the same group. They are in the same big compound with ample parking spaces. They also have dorms for backpackers. We had a family rooms which is big and bright. It comes with a kitchenette with sufficient utensils and crockery to make a decent meal. The beds are medium firm but without an electric blanket, especially this is winter time. However the aircond unit could be tuned up to give warm air. The hot shower is slightly difficult to adjust, and inconsistent in the temperature of the water. Free WiFi is limited to 500mb. You need to buy more data after the first 500mb. Toilet was cold in the morning. Simple toiletries such as toothbrush and paste and soap/shampoo were available. There is also an ironing board with iron. Hair dryer is also available. Customer service is satisfactory. We purchased also breakfast which comes in the form of continental breakfast - cereals and toasts. Overall, we are happy with the room and would recommend this hotel-motel.
Same place with Kiwi Hotel”
It's basically the same place with Auckland Airport Kiwi Hotel, so same lovely lawn and garden, same nice staff and so on. The rooms seemed even more spacious than the Hotel.
We did not end up stay at the Motel we upgraded to stay at the Auckland Airport Kiwi Hotel. Staff we really helpful and we upgraded with no problems at all. When we were shown to our Motel room we passed rooms that appeared to have people living in them (this was our perception we did not confirm this with staff). We felt uncomfortable and that is why we asked to change to stay at the Hotel instead. It is value for money and a good spot close to airport.
Very convenient & excellent service, our stay was so good the first time we booked a second time .”
Will make the Kiwi part of our travels from now on as we come home to NZ once or twice a year for our holidays & this little beauty is so very comfortable, covers all bases & that shuttle bus is just the icing on the cake when you need to make your flight schedule. Thank you 👌🏾😀🚍
As stated by other reviews the rooms at the motel are very spacious. Kitchen is basic and clean with tea, coffee and milk. Clean towels provided every day. This motel is close to tge airport, but a car is needed to visit Auckland, zoo, memorial museum. I feel that previous reviews have been a bit unfair as the motel staff were friendly and helpful. This is not a 5 star motel but it is clean with everything you may need.
Useful for airport stay ”
I stayed just for one night leaving early in the morning. The airport bus was convenient, come every hour and half past and takes around 30mins to the terminals, the hotel do wakeup calls if needed too. The room (studio apartment) was well equipped and more than I needed for single night stay, clean and convenient to have kitchenette. The price is high, but for the size of the room and compared to Auckland in general, I'd say it's worth it. The area doesn't seem worth staying in except for airport transfer but I was there for just 8 hours anyway.
Ist day in Auckland”
The stay was pleasant, The bed and the room were good but the receptionist who checked us in did not tell us breakfast was from 7 am - 9 am. We were tired the 2 nights before traveling from Seoul to Kuala Lumpur to Sydney and finally Auckland. We missed breakfast and was actually hungry by the time we picked up our camper. However, the Indian lady who was the receptionist in the main building was excellent. We would say the accommodation is 3-Star and the service pretty good. No comments on food as we did not taste. I would stay here again if I need accommodation next.
Very near the airport ”
The motel is very near the airport. But the reception is shifting with the hotel. So you need to check in in the hotel.
