Where to stay Christmas night in Auckland


We are planning our family holiday in New Zealand this year, flying into Auckland Christmas day arriving approx. 2.30pm. We are doing a self drive and starting off heading north to Bay of Islands. I figure by the time we get through customs, pick up the car and get to the city, it would be about 5pm. We plan to head off north around 9am the next day. Was wondering if anyone knows if there is much to do in Auckland Christmas night. My question is, is it worth staying in the CBD for the night, or maybe just a little out on the north side perhaps. From initial looks, CBD accom is more expensive, and also has car parking costs. Also as we are 2ad & 2chd, the room options are limited with many hotels in the city, and we would have to upgrade to an apartment. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

A lot of things will be shut on Christmas Day. If it were me I'd probably choose to stay at a motel on the North Shore to rest up. Easy for a quick getaway in the morning. Orewa Beach might be nice, you should be there in time for a refreshing swim. eg orewabeachholidaypark.co.nz/auckland/aucklan…
