We enjoyed our stay here. Reception staff friendly and welcoming. Room was very spacious for the four of us, well equiped kitchen and very comfortable beds. Clean and airy. The only down-side was every time we switched on a ceiling light, an annoying fan burst into life! Bit annoying at night as took ages to switch itself off. We had a great view from the 9th floor balcony, and being right in the heart of the city it made getting into the CBD a breeze. All round good stay, would recommend and would stay here again

We were looking forward to our night at Auckland City Oaks for an Anniversary treat. Our experience was very disappointing. Rooms don't look like advertised. Very dirty rooms. Stained sheets with black hairs on them. Dirty carpet with red stains on it. Didn't use the cups or cutlery as they looked unclean. Breakfast was disappointing - juice from India! and dry unpleasant cake. Did get a banana, yoghurt and muesli bar but that didn't excuse the rest. Dirty marks over the walls. Do not stay here!

Room Tip: Do not stay here!

Dear Louise
Thank you for your comments about the standard of housekeeping. This is of a major concern to me. You can see by our other reviews that we take great pride in our housekeeping standards – we invest a lot of time in training and hiring to ensure we have the most capable team. I have addressed your concerns with our Executive House Keeper and will follow up personally to understand what we can do better as a property. It is disappointing to hear that our service did not work, as it should have.

We stayed here 2 days and were very disappointed with the room. We booked a 2 bedroom apartment- with gym and swimming pool access and 'continental' breakfast .
The good -The reception was friendly and helpful. It had 2 bedrooms
The bad- the room was dingy and dark. The main bedroom ( twin) was dark and cramped. The kitchen chairs were sticky and dirty when we arrived. The toilet seat, flush, shower soap holder were broken. No tissues were given. The dishwasher was also broken- no dish towels or dishwashing liquid were supplied. Our room must have been near a motor so when you thought you could get to sleep, a sound like a spaceship landing could be heard. Then the police car sirens would start. Oh forgot to mention , the position is near a police station and the area is quite seedy( strip club and homeless shelter nearby) . If the weather was good we could have been out a lot but it was stormy. Hoped to use the gym and pool but is was' under repair'. I needed to get out for a walk so asked if I could borrow an umbrella but 'it' was out.
The ' continental ' breakfast was really a breakfast pack- don't call it continental then.
I have stayed at other Oak apartments but it appears that each one is separately owned and upkeep and maintenance is not uniform. You have to be lucky . We will not stay at OAK apartments in the future. There needs to be better management and prompt repairs and upkeep if they want to stay in business. VERY DISAPPOINTING!!

Room Tip: My tip is 'do not stay here'

This was this first stop on out New Zeland adventure! Very comfortable room with all the amenities you could ask for. Reception very helpful at all times of the day and could not believe how local it was to the activities that we wanted to do!

My only grumbles are breakfast could have been a bit varies as not a big fan of fruit cake! Maybe a selection of cereals or toast would be easier?

Also car parking is unfairly charged to hotel guests.

Auckland City Oaks was average for a couple of days in Auckland City,
The rooms were clean but a little small & cramped,
A window between 2 bedrooms seemed unnecessary and an inconvenience the space would be better made into more storage room for the bedrooms

Room Tip: The views from any room are poor so don't worry where you are
