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

Great service, Great Rooms, Great Food, Great Location. If your working or visiting the shore this Hotel and its team offer a very good deal. Its easy to get to, parking is no hassle. Central to the business district and only a few minutes from the motorway.

The Spencer on Byron is a good option if you need accommodation on the North Shore. I arrived the day after a significant storm that caused problems across Auckland. Some facilities at the hotel were out of action because of this. Staff are professional and helpful. Hotel is beginning to look a little tired but is still reasonable quality. They... More

Had a suite room, great views back to the city. Great location if you need to be on the Northshore in the morning, and don't want to face going over the harbour bridge. Had an evening meal in the Thyme restaurant, only average for the price. Best part was the dessert.

A convenient easy to find location plus easy to park. These are great assets for a stay in Auckland. The foyer, bar and public areas all spacious enough. There are stunning outlooks as the hotel is one of the few high-rise complexes in it's part of Auckland. The rooms are well enough appointed with the expected modern amenities. Could improve... More
