Stay at Takapuna
Really nice accommodating hotel... Enjoyed every minute there

Gem with a view
Great place to stay. Desk isn't operated overnight but as long as you check in when open, its easy to access building 24/7. Rooms are comfortable and evening restaurant service is great. Love the kitchens and washer/dryer in each room. Hotel staff are fantastic.

Enjoyed that it was on a Bay across the harbour from Auckland. Lovely view. Few community amenities close by however except the ferry which was very handy
Catherine, us2 night trip

Recommended for those who have cars.
Except for the distance from the center of Aukland it is exceptional for vacationing families.

Ana, NY
Location of the hotel very convenient if you can take the ferry to the city center, otherwise very expensive to stay at his hotel in this beautiful location. The hotel provides free transfers to the ferry If you are going to book this hotel make sure you can use the ferry to get to the hotel, otherwise it is not worthy to stay at this hotel with a magnificent view. Taxi's fares are very, very expensive
