Testimonials

From some of our lovely guests

Great place especially for families

We stayed at this lovely place for 5 nights and it was just fabulous.It's a solid but very spacious 3 star motor lodge but for $90.00-a bargain.It came with a fully equipped kitchen,spacious bedroom and bathroom.Cable TV and a backyard area made for kicking the footy or backyard cricket.The owner is a lovely woman and her little dog is so cute.We had many a laugh watching our kids chase the dog who had stolen the cricket ball many times during the game!They offer a washing service but I think there might also be a guest laundry also.There is a pub opposite and the food is reasonably priced but slightly higher quality than most pub fare-try the lamb shanks-yum yum.
A grocer 5 mins down the road and also a bakery.We also enjoyed the roast place (at the owners suggestion) near the mobil service station-cheaper than the pub and amazing roast food-they do take away.There is a commonwealth ATM near this roast place too-on the same side as the pub just further down.This small town is 30 mins from Auckland but quiet,peaceful and fully equipped if you want to self cater.There is a playground across the road too.We were there under difficult circumstances-a death in the family and the staff and owner were so kind to us.My children flew over and we occupied an upstairs and downstairs flat.If I ever have to come to Pukekhoe or Auckland I would stay here again in a heartbeat.It's not luxury but very ,very comfortable and has everything you need.Downstairs apartments have a balcony for smokers too and it's lovely to sit out there and just look at the greenery.The dog will beg you to throw the ball-highly amusing!!
