Comfortable motel
Spent a couple of pleasant nights at the City of Sails recently. Staff were very friendly and the motel was very clean and comfortable. It had all the necessary amenities in the room, but as it isn't a large motel, there was no restaurant. It is a short drive to Takapuna or Milford (where we found a nice cafe for breakfast).

Great for Hospital Visiting
Great service from the young couple on duty on 21 / 22 August, especially finding the right room for us elderly people. Only one let down was finding previous peoples rubbish was still in bathroom waste basket when we put ours in there. Would stay again if needed to be near hospital again. :-)
