Was great as far as room, service & friendly staff. Only problem was sickness with employers closed down restaurant at hotel part of the time & maid service. Not their fault, but inconvenient for our party of 7 who depended on taxi's & shuttles

A great airport hotel
Airport Gateway Motor Lodge was a great place for our last night in NZ, especially with our very, very early departure the next morning. The room was spacious (they upgraded us to a 2-bedroom unit) with plenty of room to repack. Wifi was super fast and reliable, allowing us to download videos to our iPads for the upcoming long trip home. Plugs were next to each side of the bed, as they should be in this age of needing to charge your phone and use it for your alarm. The neighborhood wasn't great for restaurants, but there's Uber, and the hotel has a restaurant of their own (which we didn't use). The van to and from the airport allowed us to drop our car at the airport after we checked in and got us to the airport for our early flight.
