6/10 Good

Convenient for a nights sleep when heading south from Auckland if arriving in the evening. Relatively close to Auckland airport. Wifi is available in certain areas but not all rooms. Unfortunately not in our room but in a common room so it worked fine.

Central Location
Unusual Greeting by manager but he was obliging. Rooms nice and big. Nice bathrooms but no hot water. Bed far too old.

4/10 Fair

Not Worth the Price
Don't believe the infos about the Wifi. The hotel has no wifi connection for its clients. They tell you to come to the lobby and try to catch free wifi connections from the Public Library or the Main Street; that didn't work for me.

8/10 Very good

Most enjoyable. Room had all we required. We were at Hampton Downs each day and it was convenient for us to travel the short distance

8/10 Very good

Good basic motel, large bedroom and large bathroom. WiFi only by reception, rooms hard wired network but you need to take network cable - though this was not a problem for us. Secure parking. Huntly is a bit down on its luck, but the chip shop and Chinese were very good.
