Staying here was very stressful for my family as we did not get treated well AT ALL. The owner, Bonnie, was very rude and gave the hotel such an unwelcoming feeling, made me want to leave ASAP. The hotel was a very nice place to stay and the food, good, but the service I received was incredibly degrading. The beds... More

We were 3 couples traveling in one van and had booked our rooms 6 weeks prior to the date. We chose Helensville as we were having a road trip from Tauranga to Dargaville and thought it... More

Courtesy van at our disposal was an added bonus. Breakfast was great value, as were the room rates. Outside courtyard is... More

The Grand hotel is one of New Zealands oldest hotels and it is a very old but a very beautiful building. I had to come to Helensville for some business from Rotorua and arrive very late. I was instantly asked if I had eaten and that I was welcome to order something if I wanted it I declined as I... More

We had an inside courtyard room, so no traffic sounds. No bedside lamps or bathrobes provided, but good bed. Since September 2012 new management and new decoration of the downstairs dining area. On... More
