Stayed here for just one night en route to Lake Taupo. The two-bed apartment was spacious but nothing seemed to work! Difficult to log in to internet, washing/machine drier did not dry clothes. Poor breakfast - essentially what you might have for lunch but at breakfast time! Would not recommend

In all my travels overseas I must say that this accomodation has let me down from the reception to breakfast to the room itself. When we arrived the staff simply weren't interested in listening to us, car parking which is minimal comes at a cost of $25 per day plus the so called continental breakfast is a packet of egg...

We booked when this hotel was still City Oaks Hotel and it stated that it was 4 star. I would say 3 - maybe 3 1/2. There was no soap holder or shelf or anything in the shower. There was no minibar. The hotel had no bar or restaurant. Having said this - we did get a good price for...

There is no coffee shop and 'breakfast' is 'free' i.e. The sandwich, muffin, and mango drink are put in the fridge the evening before. When checking out...

Booked here as a place to rest our heads on New Years. Perfect for what we wanted. Reasonable price/room size fine/helpful staff. Not the flashest place and I wouldn't want to stay here for comfort or if holidaying. A little run down but you get what you pay for. Would go back if I needed this type of place to...

We had 4 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment and it was ok. The hotel is conveniently located but the area is by no means attractive. A five block, downhill walk will get you to the viaduct/harbour area with many eateries and you are not far from town. The 4 lane street out the front leads easily to the motorway...

Auckland city oaks is the one of the best hotel in all the Newzealand. It is loacted in the very good and attractive location so the benefit is we can buy all the stuff we need near the hotel. Moreover the staff is very co-operative and very helpful. Service are really good.
