When booking I had high hopes for this hotel, the location looked good, the views amazing and interior modern. Sadly pulling into the hotel it began to look disappointing. Exterior The parking are was poor, the paving was all sunken, weedy and in poor condition. First impressions are so important. The whole of the exterior grounds were poorly maintained, weeds...

We were nothing but pleased about our stay at Auckland Takapuna Oaks Hotel. When we initially pulled into the drive, we saw a great location but thought the facility was a little aged. Were we pleasantly surprised ! The facility exterior has some years on it, but the interior has been refreshed and remodeled. Our room was a one bedroom... More

My wife and I stayed 1 night on a stop over from the airport to travel north. The mistake is in the room book about your apartments. The book clearly stated that breakfast is on the 3rd floor. When trying to have breakfast before heading out was told it is on the ground floor? Minor mistake but should not be!...... More

Overall a nice place but! A two bedroom suite (108) with the only access to the bathroom/toilet through the main bedroom. Very inconvenient! No security screen on the bedroom sliding door meant running a noisy electric fan all night to circulate the air. Consequently, not a restful night of sleep had. Also mould in shower, not acceptable regardless of humidity... More

In spite of the fact that the Takapuna Oaks Motel is not in Takapuna and that there are no oaks, it's location is superb at the end of the Bayswater peninsula. We normally stay in the centre of Auckland, but decided this time to look for something on the North shore. We were impressed by the views towards Auckland we... More

Second review of the Takapuna Oaks and my title says it all. I remarked last time that I would stay again and I'm a man of my words and yes I would stay again. Good, friendly service, rooms are spacious and quiet with free wi-fi and continental breakfast. It's a little out of the way but that can be a... More

The rooms are well equipped, clean and the staff are very friendly. The best feature of this hotel is the fabulous view of the Auckland waterfront from the restaurant terrace. We enjoyed our complementary wine there and decided to stay for the BBQ dinner. The meal was prepared fresh on the terrace and was very good, steak and grilled veggies.... More
