A big thank you to the team, who made us feel welcome on a weekend escape. The views, pool and location close to the beach made entertaining the kids so much easier. The breakfast team were superb, accommodating even the smallest request dealt with a smile. The one bedroom suite was ideal for our needs spacious and well laid out.... More

We stayed here for just one night while in Auckland for a friends wedding. The room was clean and spacious with a great bathroom with lots of light. The staff were amazing and couldn't have been more helpful.

I stayed there for a couple of weeks during a business trip in March 2014. Firstly, the location is great, just a few minutes walking from the Takapuna Beach. Its a good well looked after business hotel, with very good overall services. The one bedroom suites are well maintained and self-sufficient with all basic amenities. Most of them have a... More

We were so pleased with our recent experience at The Spencer on Byron. We found the service to be exceptional. We especially appreciate the service your front desk staff provided. They cheerfully accommodated our room request and even arranged an early-check in as our room was ready in advance. They were an absolute pleasure to deal with. We thoroughly enjoyed... More

From the first to last member of staff I dealt with, all provided excellent customer service. Location was second to none, parking was a breeze and facilities were excellent. We ordered from the restaurant and it was the best meal we have had in a long time. I will be staying there regularly and exclusively from now on.
