This is just a budget hotel and for the rate paid I wouldn't expect anything more. Although basic the room was spacious and clean. The hotel is well situated near the top end of Queen Street, walking distance from most of Auckland City attractions. Would definately recommended this hotel to the budget traveller

Once arrived at Grafton Oaks Hotel after a 8 hour drive I went to go check in when I was told that I was no longer staying at G.O Hotel that I have been reallocated to another hotel in New Market (another 15min drive) as the Hotel was under evaluation? As told by the receptionist who did not call prior...

Came to Auckland for business and leisure. Stayed for 2 nights with my 3yr old Son and husband. The staff were friendly and helpful. Found our room on the 1st floor to be neat and tidy. Although, the tiled floors could do with a bit of a scrub. It had your basic amenities tea, coffee milk etc. the room didn't...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights on our short visit to Auckland. On arrival it felt like we were interrupting the staff from their game of pool. The place needs a bit of a freshen up, some paint maybe! I didnt even see a restaurant there either even though there was a constant strong smell of Indian...

We missed Justin Timberlake in Sydney and flew to Auckland to catch the concert (it was great) with old friends on 12 Oct. Unfortunately, I made a REALLY bad call when booking at the Grafton Oaks, instead of a reputable hotel for a few dollars extra. There only appeared to be one staff member on duty when we arrived and...

The Grafton Oaks is a basic Hotel and has no Kitchen or cooking facility.The guests know that we do not have a kitchen.As our Restaurant is being renovated these guests used the Hotels unrenovated Kitchen.It was favour done to get the blame.Our website does not advertise a kitchen.

Stayed in the hotel on my first trip in NZ. Driving into the hotel compound and park my rented car not knowing that it's actually paid carpark. No thanks to the reception, i was not greeted or informed whether i have the option for the hotel valet parking, i think it's NZD10/day and end up with a breach notice. Its...

Very disappointed after the website said "Grafton Oaks Hotel Auckland New Zealand is where price conscious travellers go for top-notch Auckland Hotels". While we were from out of town, very price conscious, booked because it read up ok and was very handy to where we had to go, we were very disappointed in the overall experience. Whilst the linen was...

“I recommend rooms on the third floor and facing the hospital - the view of the sunrises are amazing The floor itself is also quite quiet and because of the large amount of rooms - you get to sleep in that extra little bit before room service wakes you up to clean your room!!!”
