Unfortunatly I only had the pleasure of staying 1 night in this hotel. I Asked the Hotel before coming, what the best way is to get to the hotel and they arranged a little shuttle for 60$NZ which was good, as the airport is far out. Hotel was beautiful and the room had a amazing big size with 2 bedrooms and big living room just for myself. Check in was good. the only down side is that everything is a bit far away even getting some groceries. would love to stay here again.

Small boutique property in the North Shore between Takapuna City Centre and Devonport with only 3 floors. Nice and quiet location. Apartment style property by the water with lovely views across to Auckland city and harbour bridge.

In residential area so not convenient if you do not have a car. Not walking distance to any shops. Free shuttle service daily from 9.30am-4.30pm from property to Bayswater Ferry Terminal (which is 5 minutes) – timetable from reception. Lovely staff. Reception on 2nd floor (ground), breakfast area on 1st floor, gym in basement, bar and restaurant on 3rd floor. Car parking at back and front. Beautiful spot at end of Bayswater road by water. Allow about 45-60 mins to get to airport and about 15-30 mins to Auckland city. I did not have a balcony but my rooms were big.

Restaurant, room service, free continental breakfast till 9.30am, hot breakfast extra. Continental breakfast quite limited so I had hot breakfast as well every morning – between $12-$22. Free wifi - get password from reception everyday as password lasts for 24 hours – unlimited passes – one for each device. They also give a voucher for complimentary glass of wine at the sunset bar during happy hour 5-7pm but you need to order a snack with it.

Lovely clean, spacious and bright rooms – lounge with kitchenette and separate bedroom. No bathtub but bathroom is modern with the necessary amenities. Water pressure and hot water system good. Small safety box in wardrobe, 3 hangers, washing machine/dryer, dishwasher, microwave, mini oven, fridge etc – perfect! Small dining table with 2 chairs and a sofa.

Ensure you lock the door with room key – door does not lock automatically when you close it behind you. Room serviced daily.

Stayed: December 2013, travelled on business

We had a one bedroom with a very good layout and it was very clean and tidy, they had all the furnishings including a washing machine. Nice balconies with views, peaceful and the staff were very friendly. I will be returning.

Room Tip: Get a room on the city side.

We found this Hotel to be everything anyone would want in location, facilities and service if you are visiting Auckland.
The rooms were very well presented and the service, from check in to check out was am\lways above and beyond.
I would recommend this Hotel to anyone travelling to or through Aucland.

For the record, my job has me traveling and living in hotels throughout Australasia and the Americas, so I have some experience to measure against.

Room Tip: I wouldn't hesitate recommending this hotel

Stunning location and views, and still 10 mins from CBD though outside rush hour the ferry (8 mins walk) is only 1 x per hour. Spacious suite rooms, friendly staff. Limited but nice continental B fast, cooked breakfast is extra to order and pay. But also some limitations:
* WiFi is Scrooge-like, 200 M which means10 mins per voucher (on tablet/laptop, smartphone of course no problem) and extra vouchers within limits free from front desk
* Nice free washing machine which works well for that, but also doubles as tumble dryer. Useless for that, even with 3-4 pieces and 2 cycles hardly any dry clothes.
* Ourselves no real problem at checkout expect for long queues, but 3 times passing in the morning there WERE queues and all people with too time-consuming problems, indicating either unprofessional staff or ditto rules. Like ''we subtract 5 NZD/day from the cooked breakfast bill as apparently you dont use the continental stuff which is free' - well intended but caused lots of discussions,

Still would prefer the place anytime over a CBD suite which is prices 2-3 times higher!

Room Tip: Front side (harbour view)
