Great Location but needs improvement

Review of Devonport Motel
3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 13 Jan 2020
There are two rooms in this motel. The location is great within walking distance of Devonport shops, cafes and the wharf. They advertise Free Parking but generally it is on the street if you are lucky. We were able to park in the driveway but had to move the car a couple of times to allow workers to bring their truck in which is the second annoying fact that there were workers working right outside our front door digging up the cement. This could or should have been done at a time when there were no guests. The room was adequate and it was very quiet at night. I had to ask if the room would be serviced as it was not explained whether or not the room would be serviced which it should being classified as a 'motel'. Long and short the location was great but there needs to be improvement.

Located in a house in Devonport Village, it's a cosy room with warm and friendly service from the owners. I chose this place as it was very close to the start line of the Auckland marathon (around 500m away) and it's walking distance to the coast, ferry terminal and shops. So glad I chose to stay here instead of downtown Auckland.

The motel was well located close to the village centre and the ferry to Auckland.
The unit appeared old (particularly the bathroom) but was adequate in size. (TV was the smallest that we encountered on our trip). The unit was air conditioned.
Our biggest issue was with the parking. The 2 units were located at the back of the house in the garden. There was one driveway down the side of the house and the vehicles had to remain in the driveway. This meant that one car was blocked in by the second arrival, plus the owner also parked there. There was virtually no on street parking as workers parked in the street. (and it was raining)
Overall, the unit would suit arrivals without a vehicle who were able to take the ferry to Auckland or walk to the village. In our case, parking was an inconvenience. Otherwise, the unit was comfortable.

Good-sized room with lovely comfortable bed. Lots of hot water and good shower/bathroom. All very clean. Kitchenette had everything you need. Wifi worked really well. Owners were friendly and welcoming. Short walk into Devonport for bars, restaurants, shops, beaches and ferries. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Devonport Motel is a great little place tucked away behind the owners house. It is close to the small shopping precinct and just a short stroll to other tourist spots. Within walking distance to the ferry terminal. The unit was very clean and tidy and has the basic utensils to be self sufficient. The bed was comfortable and the garden outside was delightful to sit in and enjoy. The owners were lovely people to deal with. There was very little road noise as it is off the main road.

This is a small place with two units in the back garden.
Immaculate throughout, with use of their back garden which was delightful.
Close to the harbour, beach road and town centre.
Totally peaceful and a lovely place to stop.
I had tried booking into the main hotel on the promenade but they were full and the guy on their desk recommended this place. he actually called it a gem
