rooms comfy, beautiful trees and surroundings, close to amazing beach and restaurants, on my visit, staff not so friendly, but the sparrows were a delight and visited us for hand outs. Hard to believe in the middle of the busy North Shore Auckland, such a lovely spot exists.

Not trendy or over-priced... but hospitable and a GREAT location. I do business in Takapuna and loved having access to nearby restaurants and shops... and the beach! You feel less like a visitor and more like a resident when you take your morning walks along the shore of Takapuna Beach. It's about a 20-25 minute walk to the local (largish)... More

Great big rooms, nice and quiet if you're away from the street. No air conditioning or heating (just a small oil heater that would do nothing in the cathedral-ceiling'd room I was in). Windows open to let the air in but any further into Summer and it would have been uncomfortable. Mostly I couldn't come to grips with the idea... More

What can I say about one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed at - and I am an extensive traveller. Simply magnificent setting, gorgeous gardens and lovely simple rooms - clean and well appointed. The ONLY drawback - free or at least reliable wi-fi Otherwise superb - thanks Janice xxx (love your white top)

The service & overall standard at this place was absolutely appalling. We we're met with total rudeness by the woman at the front desk who didn't welcome us in anyway but just said "You're room's not ready" when we arrived. We were told to come back in an hour which we did only to be told our room still wasn't... More

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
