Friendly manager which had helpful tips on the surroundings (things to do and restaurants). Units were comfortable and the overall lodge was quite peaceful and great for recharging your travel batteries. We twice went to the nearby Thai and loved the service and food there also.

We arrived in Auckland very early but luckily managed to get into our hostel and even get the free breakfast despite not ...
... Went through the scanners then into the lounge, were greeted by a woman who gave us a Kitkat each!
Had another quick scan for a computer, but was told they’d been removed as they were building, everywhere seemed to have building work.
Looked for a drink but everything was so over-priced, ended up just getting a water, that was still over-priced.
The departures lounge wasn’t great, so we waited on a bench until we could board at 3:35pm.
... up the road to the local pub to watch the India v Pakistan World Cup game as it is not on the channels available in out hotel room.
Before joining them i find a chemist that is still open (its about 9:00pm at this stage) to buy some anti-inflammatories for my leg. Returning to the pub I stop by the local Movenpick for a Tiramisu ice-cream before a solitary beer (at $10 each, its no wonder) with the boys before returning to the hotel and a good night's sleep.
