Stayed here for 6 nights was in a good location and was very happy with the room we had. The room was very clean and was a good size. Heated pool was great in the cold weather. Our room had a great view of Auckland city at night was very nice.

Well placed for my business commitments, although might seem a fair way from the airport for some. Room well appointed with all usual features. Bed comfortable, good TV coverage (watching Commonwealth Games). Room service (panini) was surprisingly good and promptly and professionally delivered. Full buffet breakfast included all you could possibly want - had some muesli, eggs and crispy bacon,... More

I enjoyed my stay while in country for business. Food was great, staff was very helpful and flexible. Front desk staff was more than accommodating when I had problems with my printer. I would recommend Spenser on Byron for anyone traveling to Auckland.

For those looking for a professional and relaxing hotel and neighbouring surrounds when in Auckland you just can't beat the Spencer on Byron. It's a fantastic alternative to central city hotels because it's only 5 mins away, but in an area where there are beaches, a lake, cafés and shops. In addition, the rooms are large and include kitchen facilities,... More

I booked this hotel because I'd heard advertising and had built a picture in my mind of what to expect. Firstly the location is excellent, the view from our room was over the western parts of the North shore, and on the balcony you catch a glimpse of the harbour. The room was spacious our 1 bedroom apartment room with... More

I loved staying at the Spencer on Byron, we had two rooms connected together and it felt so spacious and very very comfortable. The rooms had wonderful views, and we were only on the third floor! The staff were lovely, especially at the buffet and front desk. I loved the buffet most of all, great, quality food. Really delicious healthy... More

We were really happy with the size of the rooms and all the facilities available, very handy for our family of 4. The food was great, we enjoyed the breakfast buffet and were really happy with the quality. The pool and tennis court are super cool too! Our kids had a blast in the heated pool. We were able to...

but 'nickel and diming' was disappointing for a hotel of this category. To charge $4.50 for in-room plunger coffee is nothing short of cheeky. Every halfway decent motel in NZ would make this available free of charge, so this is really irritating as is the $5 charge for a pretty standard bottle of water in the room. On the plus... More

Helpful staff. Quiet, good parking, value for money. Easy access to Takapuna. Big hotel feel but quiet rooms. TV not working when arrived but fixed immediately. Clean and perfect for family stay. Uncover secure and free parking. Polite and efficient staff.

I live on the North Shore, and I am ashamed that I recommended this place to my family who have stayed here a second time. My family stayed here over the Christmas break for about 2 weeks prior...... My family the Latimers, have come here from their home in Dubai, with their 2 children. They have a 1 bedroom unit... More
