We'd arrived late in Auckland on Friday 13th April to pick up a Britz camper van for a 10-trip. It turned out to be the start of school holidays, so Auckland traffic was horrific and when we arrived at Britz at 440pm, we were rudely informed that they were now closed and to come back tomorrow. Despite pleading for them to let us have the van we had rented, as we had nowhere else to go, we were subject to the worst customer service I have ever witnessed (Britz review to follow).
So we walked folornly up the road to find the welcome reception of the Best Western, who had rooms for the night and a not too unreasonable price.
Our room was huge, with a seperate diner/lounge (including another single bed), a large double room, and a massive bathroom with jacuzzi!
We happened to have a pot of homemade Singapore Chicken curry with us (long story), so wandered down the road about 0.75km to a grocery store, with adjacent liquor store and bar. Perfect. We had a very good nights sleep.
We'd ordered breakfast, to fortify us before our morning battle with Britz Camper vans, and were wondering where it was served, when there was a knock at the door. It was one of the staff with a huge tray of cooked breakfast.
A great start to our day!!
the room was clean, and well equipped (fridge, microwave, TV etc), location perfect for the airport, and camper van depot.
All in all, very good. less
