Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great place to stay, and close to eating several restaurants and the City and Airport. Close to One Tree Hill if you want to go for a walk.
Hash the manager is a very friendly and helpful person and cooks a great breakfast. Rooms are a good size and are clean and tidy with everything you need if you want to cook your own meal. Parking is close to your room if not outside your room.

Just spent 2 nights at this property with my parents. We had a one bedroom suite. My parents had a king bed in their room and it was spacious with cupboard/wardrobe space. The pro was they had their own tv which meant they could lay in bed and watch telly. The bathroom and kitchen was sufficient. I liked that there were table and chairs by the kitchen. I had the single bed in the lounge. It perhaps was a bit too bouncy or unstable since it was on wheels I felt like I could fall out of bed at any time. But it didn't have a negative impact with my stay. The lounge was roomy enough for us 3 as there was enough seating. Just the recliner chair looked a bit used as it was showing signs of wear and tear. Other than that we liked the fact it was close to where we needed to go and it was close to shops/eateries. My parents checked in and mentioned the motel owner was super helpful and friendly and was very informative about the surroundings. We liked it had Sky and that it was warm. We would return again if it's at a reasonable rate.

Busy motel with little amount of parking. Rooms are very clean and reasonably comfortable.the motel is quiet apart from kids running up and down the stairs.The motel owners are very nice people who remember your name as you walk through the door.
Rooms are not large but have enough room for one or two people Tv is flat screen with plenty of sky channels. Bathrooms are clean with large shower and in good condition.kitchens are a little old but still ok.I would definitely return to this motel.

Hello and thank you for your review. We appreciate your comments regarding the kitchens and it is our intention to upgrade most of our family unit kitchens as soon as we find a suitable contractor. Also we have 23 units and 25 car parks in total but when we are busy as you mention, and some guests arrive in multiple cars, then it becomes a real squeeze. See you again.

We stayed at the Epsom Motel for 2 nights after needing somewhere to stay in Auckland at short notice.

Our room was comfortable with a small kitchen area and nice bathroom (as well as a small garden which we did not use). The room was clean but had a musty smell throughout our stay.

The owners were friendly and offered free wifi and free parking which was great.

Overall, I thought the price was quite high for what was on offer.

Thank you for your kind review. So sorry you found our motel "basic"?? I cannot fully explain the musty smell but it is most probably the smell of wet carpet as we sometimes have water or liquid spilled onto our carpets by guests and/or cleaners.

I spent a week here on business and wasn't disappointed.
The location is excellent, just a few minutes from the motorway, and only about 12 minutes from downtown.
The facilities are excellent and they are in the process of refurbishing their rooms, and the house keeping crew are second to none, my room was always clean and tidy and a pleasure to come back to after a full on day!!
Hash and Sheila are excellent hosts, attentive without being too in your face.
I have since booked another three weeks, for business stays throughout the rest of the year, and would recommend it for location, cleanliness and the host's attention to detail and your comfort.

The manager was so nice and polite. She came with us to show us the room. I will love to recommend this to everyone. Even though the motel was on the main road but the noise was not a problem
Thank you Epsom motel and the manager (Palkin)

Our first Motel claimed a plumbing problem and said they had booked us in here instead.

Would not book this place on line, even before we got there, and definitely would not pay the rates charged.

Be aware, this appears to be a bed fill gimmick, where the "slightly better" motel up the road books you and then you get passed on.

Hello Herbsteraged. Thank you for your post but this is clearly a case of mistaken identity!!!! We have owned and operated our motel for 15 years and have never engaged in this practice and never will. We also have no record of your stay with us. So can you please do the decent thing and delete your post as it is inaccurate and harmful to our business??

We phoned the Motel direct for accommodation for 1 night. Super friendly service on the phone and in person when we arrived. The room, kitchen area and bathroom was clean and tidy. The bed was marginal (bit too soft for our liking). The heatpump worked well. There was no road noise. Recommended :-)

This location was ideal for us. Our room has recently been renovated to a high standard in all areas. Kitchen was well equipped and beds were very comfy. Easy access to restaurants and supermarket just around the corner. Easy access to motorways.
