Stayed one night at The Spencer through RCT. The rooms are large and comfortable and the staff are very friendly. The dinner service provided decent food, but I would encourage eating off premises if possible. Breakfast buffet however, was probably one of the better ones we encountered on our tour. The little kitchenette in the room was also very convenient.... More

Wow! Just Wow! The view from room 1201 leaves me at a loss for words. From the Sky City tower and CBD stretching across the water to the open bay with a volcano in the background this was like a postcard picture. We had a very nice suite with a studio room adjoining for our teenager for a reasonable price.... More

We stayed one night on the 18th floor at the Spencer on Bryon, Takapuna. The service was great, the room was awesome and the view was amazing looking out over the sea, beach and Takapuna. We slept with the curtains open and was amazed at the sunrise over the sea. Easy walk to some great restaurants and the beach.

I was looking for a place to stay on the shore as I was flying for an overnight. Choose the spencer for location, and wanted somewhere nice to stay. I hired a vehicle from the airport, and arrived to the hotel. Was not to sure where to leave car so that I could check in. So that was a bit... More

Having been to Auckland NZ 20+ times it was a pleasant surprise to stay at the spencer on bryson just "out of town in civilised takapuna. Referred to by an associate I didnt know how I had never seen this 15 or 16 storey venue before, but now that I have I will be back. 10 min from the CBD,... More

Stayed on 18th floor in a 1 bedroom suite. The suite is large and the views are amazing! Was very happy with the room and amenities although some of the furniture is a bit tired but it was clean, large and pleasant. We were just past 10am coming to breakfast and were the only people there. We ordered off the... More

We were given a room on the 9th floor facing the city. Only stayed 2 nights but the staff were friendly, access to and around the hotel was great. Even better because it was close enough to walk to the local restaurants (especially as it was rather cold). This hotel was chosen because - I have stayed in some of... More

Internet is very expensive. My room was listed with 'Free Internet' on Wotif but after arriving and asking staff twice this was only 1 hour free. The Gym was great, not many hotels have a squat rack and Concept 2 Rower! Very large rooms

Dear Anthony, Thank you for your review, and after some investigation, I can see that the package you booked via Wotif did indeed include 24 hour internet access. It appears that there was a misunderstanding with another package we have available. Please accept my sincerest apologies for the confusion, and we have now included an extra step in our booking...

Stay here 2 - 3 times a year. Usually get a 1 bedroom apartment, or sometimes a standard room, however, all are spacious. Good sized beds. Could do with warmer covers in winter. The hotel is roundish in shape, so nearly all rooms have a view, either towards the city or the coast. Good supply of toiletries and the rooms... More
