Reviewed 1 April 2014

This hotel is situated in the Aukland harbor. The view, amenities, food and service can't be beat! New Zealand is a countruy of incredible scenery and people and so is the hotel. We had a wonderful visit there.

I was sent here for work in September 2013. It was my first time in this hotel and selected it for it location, both central in the city and near work. I soon realised that it was also near a lot of nice restaurants both in the harbour area and near the fish markets.
The service received from the valet and bell staff was of a high standard and very friendly. We received a lot of helpful tips and suggestions for 'off-the-beaten track' spots to check out and places to eat from these guys.
Room size was normal and we managed to get moved to a bigger room as I was there for a total of 2 weeks. Parking was a bit pricy but if you are staying for a while with a car rental, make sure you pay weekly - works out cheaper :-)

Great hotel with perfect harbour views. Cocktail bar and restaurant were quiet with great food. Outdoor dining overlooking the harbour. Breakfast was better than I have ever seen before and the variety was amazing. Service was fast efficient and friendly. Definitely a hotel I would recommend to others

Extremely unhelpful staff, no value for the high rates, almost inedible breakfast buffet. Would not recommend this hotel at all - much better off at a boutique hotel in Auckland. Location is good as it is on the water except half the rooms face the wrong way and the ones that do face the water look at another building.

We arrived here after a wonderful cruise around New Zealand. If you are coming off a cruise ship, this is the place to stay! Right next door to disembarking terminal! We wheeled our luggage right to the front door. A bellman name William was so friendly and took our luggage straight away for storage and then room delivery. Throughout our 4 day stay, William was always helpful and friendly. The room was very nice, room 414. The view was just breathtaking after the cruise ship departed. My husband is a Diamond Hilton member, and they treated us very nicely. The breakfast buffet is delicious and plentiful! I would definitely stay here again.

I think my title says it all. I read lots of moans and groans on TripAdvisor about cruise ships but they are part of staying at a living dock location.
The hotel is clean, the staff are caring and interested in your comfort and enjoyment of their hotel.
Room serve was timely, tasty hot and cooked to precision.
I would stay here again in a heart beat and have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone visiting the City of Sails.

Eighteen of us had a reunion in Auckland.Thirteen of us booked into the Hilton as we thought it was an ideal place to showcase Auckland especially Waitemata harbour.We had organized yachting and also a ferry trip to Northcote Point for a dinner. The weather did not do us any favours as a cyclone came in on Friday and out on Sunday - exactly matching our reunion time, so we had to cancel these events.We had drinks and dinner at Fish and we were able to use the balcony for drinks before dinner which suited us well. The staff were very accommodating and the food was very good.
Our room was spacious and had a great outlook.It was a superior harbor view room (I think that's what they call it.) The staff were all very helpful from the time we arrived until the time we left.

Room Tip: If you book a harbour view room make sure there are no cruise ships in as they will block your view.
