We are located 10 minutes drive from Auckland's CBD, just off the Northern Motorway, right next to the Takapuna golf course and close to Takapuna Beach. Within minutes of the hotel you'll find the North More Shore Events Centre, North Shore Stadium and the Bruce Mason Centre, all major venues for any events happening on the North Shore. Less
