Accommodation in Auckland

My daughter and her boyfriend are travelling to New Zealand for a years working holiday. They fly into Auckland on the 22nd of October and want to spend around five nights just catching there breath before they move on. Can someone help me to organise a hotel for them to relax in for the few nights, fairly central but not too expensive. They will be using public transport to and from the Airport so easy access to bus stations or train stations would help. Also they need to organise flights to Queenstown so any helpful information would be handy as regarding carriers etc. Many thanks in advance and any information very gladly received.

Flights to Queenstown...

There are basically 2 airlines - AIR NZ & Jetstar.

Jetstar is the equivalent of EasyJet / RyanAir is the UK, so its budget, no frills and with all the potential annoyances that come with that, but may well be the cheapest.

AIR NZ should be slightly more reliable and wont be significantly different in price.

Just get on the internet and see what the best fares are.

For hotels in AKL, a couple of really good options that offer good value, central location, and only a few minutes walk to AIRBUS service & Britomart Transport centre, are AUCKLAND HARBOUR OAKS, CELESTION WALDORF, QUEST ON QUEEN.... these are juyst a few of many options but I have used and recommended all of these and you should be able to get a room for not much over NZ$100 per night

Jucy Hotel on Emily Place is aimed at the younger set - it's a cheap and cheerful budget accommodation but with good facilities. It's location is up a steep short street above Britomart, handy enough to Queen St and the Britomart transport centre, except the Airbus stops on Queen St requiring a walk uphill to get there.

Either the Quest on Queen or the nearby Mercure hotels would be good choices for proximity to Britomart and for transport and food. The Airbus route runs alongside these 3 hotels.

I have not stayed at WALDORF STADIUM, but they should be equivalent quality to the CELESTION WALDORF, so would be a good choice, location is good, so yes would be a good choice.

Quest on Queen is great except on Thurs, Fri and Sat when the noise from the nightclub below will keep you awake until the wee hours of the morning. The rooms come with earplugs. Pity, as they're great little apartments in a great location. For airfares try Air NZ grab a seat. http://grabaseat.co.nz/
