Accommodation Suggestions?

Postby scampr on Wed 11/Nov/09 8:50am

Where's good to stay handy to Woodhill? Normally I'm looking for dirt cheap place to crash but seen as the trip to check out woodhill is a surprise for hubby's birthday perhaps bunks isn't quite the best idea ;) Crap, I've even booked a babysitter. lol
Looking online looks like Parakai might be handy? Or is downtown AKL not too far anyhow.

Pref something with a spare 'bed' for his bike, caus he's kinda attached and doesn't like to leave it on the back of the car overnight.

There must be mtb friendly places around there?
