well first off the people were friendly and the service was great , but the more you stay there the lack of assistance you get . been there for 2 months & the problem was about the sheets and blankets , they would complain about how many times we would give them the sheets and blankets to wash. Ants was another problem , all over the wall to the kitchen table. The bed was uncomfortable it was to single beds stuck together. FLeas were also a big problem which my daughter was unsettled because of the bites , i complained to the reception & said they will do something about it but they didnt. The other thing which was weird the landlord turn off our aircon which we did not know about. The maintance was good lovely ladies but the rooms were never cleaned , sometimes we will come back and the rooms werent done. But other then that it had all the knvifes folks plates , bowls fridge microwave and everything else which was good.…
We arrived at the Grange Motel very early in the day, before our room was ready. Staff instantly made us feel welcome, made me a coffee and let us use the restroom after our long flight. They made recommendations for how to spend our day and let us leave our car there while we explored Auckland (via Uber). When we returned, we asked for and received excellent dinner recommendations and, all on their own, they wrote a full page of ideas for things to do in another city we were planning to visit a few days later! The place was clean and quiet and perfect for our first night in NZ.
Never having been to Auckland before my wife and I were uncertain about where to stay after our long haul flight and the fact that we needed to collect our hire car from the airport. We eventually decided on the Grange Motel, it was closer to the airport and would give us time to adjust to our "new" surroundings. We were not to be disappointed, the hotel is all we could have wished for. We arrived late afternoon and were shown to our apartment. Self contained, large and airy, clean and quiet. During our month long touring holiday of New Zealand my wife made notes of all the places we stayed, At first she was sceptical of my choice but had to admit that The Grange Motel came out way above the others.
I was staying at the motel with my 5 kids for 8 weeks it was a awesome time the people were wonderful and pleasant to talk with. U have housekeeping every morning who will refill the tea, coffee,hot chocolate, sugar,towels, toilet paper and shampoo and they also have there own laundry services.
We had a good stay here. The rooms are nicely appointed and clean. The manager takes great care at presentation. Early on we thought it was going to be a noisy location but we slept without issue. Very comfy. The guest laundry facilities were a big plus for us. The lack of pub-style dinner venues and cafes meant we had quite a drive to find dinner and breakfast. Other than that, it was great for our last night in NZ.
