Excellant location right in the centre of Mt Eden at the base of the Mt. Next to all the local ameneties you could want, restaurants, bars, banks etc etc.
All these though wouldn't be of any use without the excellance of the Lodge itself, personnally made friends for life there and found it very hard to leave, such was the set up of Oaklands. I went back to stay several times and cant see myself staying anywhere else if i was to go back to Auckland.
The rooms were spacious, warm and comfy, with a large kitchen and dining area which was just as good to socialise in as the tv room. Excellant grounds for lounging and having barbeques.
Overall i couldnt ask for anything else and give the 5/5 it deserves.
