This hotel is worth considering if you are in Auckland. Only a couple of blocks from the Vidaduct but away from the drunks on Queen St. Best features are huge gym which has a panorama of the city and a full size indoor pool. Enjoyed buffet breakfast. I found my room is a bit tired and plain but fine enough. I took up their offer of no servicing during my stay (only 2 nights) for a $10 discount. What a neat idea. Only stinger is valet parking which was $30 but there really isnt anywhere handy you can do this yourself in Auckland city.

The Stamford has a brilliant location, just minutes in walking to the Quay and shopping. The rooms are beautifully appointed - large, clean and the amenities in the bathroom are "top notch". Breakfast is great. The gym is on the top floor and has a wide range of equipment plus a pool.

This was my fifth stay at the Stamford. Whilst I did have a terrible experience at check-in on the Wednesday night with Tiara, I alerted management who went out of their way to apologise. Edwin in particular was professional and helpful! I returned on the Friday night and had a wonderful night's sleep in a super comfortable bed (thanks to Hamish).

I will definitely return to the Stamford as the customer service is outstanding. (My only suggestion is either curtains or stronger air-con in the gym when the sun is beating in first thing in the morning.)

Reviewed 26 January 2011

We arrived on Sat 22nd January, by the valet saying 'you can't park there', unless you want valet parking. Welcome to the Stamford. We checked into a deluxe room. Not really. The room had a reasonable bathroom with seperate 3/4 size bath + shower, a hallway, and a very average bedroom. The room was so crammed with furniture, there was no space. The room & fitted warerobe was quite tired and dated, but generally the room was comfortable. The layout though wasn't the best. I kicked my toe twice on the desk.
The restaurant had a good selection for breakfast.
The wi-fi in the lobby wasn't working, so had to use the business centre wi-fi.
Credit card payments attract an additional 1.5% on the bill.
$30 per day/night valet car parking.
Overall I'd say about 4 stars.

Dear Peckanz,

Thank you for your detailed comments.

I am glad you liked our breakfast selection, which receives great reviews from our guests. We have noted your feedback about the layout of the room and will be working on it. The wi-fi in the lobby had an issue on the day you stayed and it was corrected by our IT Technician.

Thank you once again and we look forward to welcoming you back again.

Warm regards,

I was impressed with the quality of the room, the helpful front desk staff and the delicious buffet breakfast which was included in my stay. I feel the rooms could go for an upgrade, particularly its lack of wireless internet access in rooms. Free internet access in the business centre was a big plus for me though. No other hotel I stayed at in NZ or Australia for that matter offered that perk.

My wife always wants to take her own pillow with her when we go away. And with pillows like the ones offered here it is no wonder why. They are absolutely terrible. We stayed in two different rooms on two different visits with lousy pillows in both rooms. Buffet breakfast is great, rooms are great. Just make sure that you ask for a room at the front of the hotel. On our second visit we were lumbered with a room towards the back with views of rooftops, laneways and the grubby walls of the neighbouring buildings.
