As a family weekend away, we found Emerald Inn peaceful and very quiet. While living away from Auckland we had a function to attend so booked a weekend with the family. Was truly a relaxing and enjoyable weekend.

My family and I stayed for a week in the Villa at the Emerald Inn. At first glance the Emerald Inn is a motor inn, with basic but comfortable Accommodation:, but if you can stretch the finances to take on the villa you enter a whole new world of wonderful.

We had a 1 bedroom motel unit. It was very spacious & clean. We overlooked the pool area. It was quiet & very central to the beach & shopping. The bed was comfortable & our room cleaned daily. Wi Fi was really expensive so we didn't use. It should have been free for the price we paid for 2 nights.

We booked our wedding night here having returned home from London to get married. We booked at least 2 months in advance and emailed requesting a late check out due to the circumstances. We were informed that only a half hour later check out could be accommodated without incurring further cost. What really was shocking and disappointing was that of... More

Perfect place to stay after spending the day in the city. The Emerald Inn is only a few steps from the beach and a short waking distance from the main street, which was great for dinging out, having a few drinks and walking back.The room was spacious and had everything we needed. As a girl who has used low wattage... More

A great motel set in lovely grounds with good facilities. The Emerald Inn is very well located close to the beach and the town with a choice of good restaurants. It is also close to Devonport and North Head which are well worth visiting. It was unfortunate that on our first night the neighbours were having a noisy drinks gathering... More

Motel is near the Takapuna Beach just north of Auckland city, nice area with easy access to plenty of restaurants and a beachside café. Rooms were very good, plenty of space and a good shower. Would use it again.

We have used the Emerald Inn as a great escape for the occassional week end. The motel has a stunning setting and it is within easy walking distance of good shops, restaurants and cafes and of course beautiful Takapuna Beach. The rooms we have had are well equiped and clean. There is a lot happening in the area but once inside... More

A friend recommended this Motel when we needed accommodation with a few days notice. We booked the last room, and it was by no means a last room, nice and quiet, clean and modern fittings, with friendly staff. Ideally located close to the Takapuna shopping precinct, beach, cafes, bars, etc...... My only gripe, it was muggy hot, and there was... More
