I will be back to NZ on business and won't hesitate staying here again. Bed comfy, central location and easy walk to...

We enjoyed location and walking to all our functions in Takapuna. Our room on the 17th floor had a fantastic morning sun and view of the ocean. We appreciated having a one bedroom apartment with laundry facilities.

We were part of a bus tour and only spent one night here. The dinner was enjoyable as was the buffet breakfast. Rooms were Fresh, clean and roomy. Shower had plenty of pressure. Very close to Sky Tower and other facilities we didn't have the time to visit.

Lovely staff, short 5-10min walk to the Takapuna Beach - which has lovely uncrowded views. Free wifi. Had a welcome dinner arranged by Red Carpet Tours at their Thyme Restaurant - excellent food and desserts.

I have stayed here before (2014) and nothing much has changed, despite looking a little worn in places it was clean and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The gym has...

The views are pretty awesome especially from our 17th floor suite. Reception staff were unhelpful. We have a one year old baby and had requested an earlier check-in several times. Whilst we understand there is no obligation for this, it would've been nice to have this request actioned. The receptionist seemed to half-heartedly attempt to check with the cleaning department...

Last stayed here many years ago. Staff were friendly and helpful. Had a nice view. Beds need updating - not comfortable at all. No special touches to make it stand out from others. As title says good location for North Shore activities

Stayed 4 nights in a very spacious suite with stunning views across the water to downtown Auckland. Washing machine, dryer and dishwasher in room made life easy - the hotel is showing its age a little in places but still represents great value. Dinner in Thyme restaurant was excellent. The breakfast menu could do with an express option as I...
