The Conference does not include accommodation, but Auckland has a very diverse range of options from top-class hotels to AirBnB (which lists more than 100 options for the Conference dates at the time of writing).
Our base is Danish House, 6 Rockridge Avenue, Penrose, Auckland 1061. There will be good car parking at the building on Saturday and Sunday, but more competition during business hours on Friday.
Suburbs close by that have motels (try any booking site) and Airbnb include Oranga, Te Papapa, Onehunga, Royal Oak. Further towards the city try Epsom, Newmarket and Remuera. The airport area is reasonably also handy and has public transport.
There is inexpensive hotel and motel accommodation fairly close by. View the Google Map below or click here for a larger map.
Ibis (3* budget) or Novotel (4*) at Greenlane Roundabout should be a good standard of accommodation. They have a bar and restaurant and within walking distance of a large Countdown supermarket, a few restaurants and takeaways. Even closer by is Greenlane railway station, two stops from Penrose railway station (which itself is 1 km or 12 minutes walk) from Danish House.
Greenlane Manor Inn at Great South Road is 2.7 km from Danish House, on an easy route taking about 35 minutes on foot. Located opposite a row of shops, curry restaurant, Wendy’s and near a very good Coffee Club.
Sai Motels on Great South Road, is 2.4 km (31 minutes walk, same easy route as nearby Greenlane Manor).
Rockfield Motel on Rockfield Road. Auckland members don’t recommend this.
Ellerslie International Hotel & Conference Centre on the Ellerslie Panmure Hway, located at the end of the Ellerslie Village shops. 2.9 km from Danish House, about 36 minutes walk. As the name suggests, it is used by business people and has a bar and restaurant, and more bars and restaurants close by. Could be more expensive but fairly popular.
Ellerslie Palms Motel, Ellerslie Panmure Hway. 3.9 km/49 minutes walk. Refurbished about a year ago.
The following are in a long strip of motels between Greenlane and Newmarket:
Tudor Motel is 5.2 km from Danish House
Siesta Motel is 5.6 km
Alternatively, why not make a longer trip and look up friends or relatives in Auckland?
