My wife and I went there on our Honeymoon night 13 years ago. We decided after 13 years it would be nice to go back 13 years. We loved the room, the staff were great and we decided to eat out and the choice of places to eat in Takapuna was amazing. To top off a great weekend was breakfast... 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.

We were pleasantly surprised by the spacious room, awesome view and brilliant location. Upon arrival we were impressed with the large foyer and having had a wander around we found a gorgeous bar on the mezzanine level. Although we had dinner in town (which is very close) the restaurant looked nice.

Loved the hotel. The room was really comfortable and just loved the bed and linen. Nice view. There were 3 of us in the room yet only 2 towels. Requested more and they were supplied promptly. Disappointed there was no bath (as I don't have one at home) but the high pressure amazing shower made up for it. Love the... More

As a kiwi living abroad I travel home frequently. I stayed at The Spencer for 8 days in February/March 2014. I am writing this review now as I plan a longer, 3 week trip to NZ in 2015. I considered The Spencer again and it was at that point I just thought "no no no!" That is when I felt... More
