Always stay here with my kids when we want a weekend away. Love their deals, the rooms and the buffet breakfast! The buffet dinner wasnt that great for the price per head. Could've had a bit more variety. And it would be very nice if they'd have ice-cream on the dessert menu...especially if you have kids. But overall always love... More

My daughter and I recently had the pleasure of our first stay at Waipuna Hotel and were nothing less than impressed! The hotel is impeccably presented (some floors are currently being refurbished - ours was already done it would seem) and is spaciously laid out which is a nice change in a hotel. The outlook over the lagoon is a... More

Dear Guest Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our hotel. It is always a pleasure to receive feedback such as yours. We are currently refurbishing the last few bathrooms on the second floor and hope to have this completed in late August. We look forward in welcoming you back in the near future. Regards Daron...

I was visiting for a conference and stayed as well. I had a ground floor room, nice size with two big beds and a bathroom with a huge shower (good water pressure) and also a bath. Without heating the room felt slightly cold which I liked because I prefer to heat to my preference rather than try and sleep in... More

My colleague and I booked a room here with an adjoining bedroom, which made it more cost effective than booking two totally separate rooms - we were very grateful for this as when I originally inquired I was told they don't have rooms with two separate bedrooms. The room was perfectly adequate for us. The gym was a bit average,... More

Staff were very efficient when I arrived late at night. Room was comfortable, a bit limited. Very comfortable bathroom, you will have to pay for anything beyond horrid tea and coffee. The lift sounds like a dinosaur grunting every time it moves, but until late at night I didn't really notice it in my room which was not far away.... More

Dear Guest I am very sorry to read that you didn't enjoy the buffet dinner. Our feedback regarding dinner and food service in general, is overwhelmingly positive so sounds like you struck us on an off night. Our lifts are serviced regularly and following your comments we currently have technicians in to ensure they are operating as quietly as possible.... More

Getting into Auckland without having booked any accommodation, the reception staff here were able to get us a room for a good price. Initially only being able to book for the first 3 nights, the reservations manager was able to book us in for the rest of our stay (9 days total) and we were able to stay in the... More

My wife and I stayed for the recent Lion's Convention. We found the reception pleasant and helpful and our room had all the facilities we required and was very clean and well presented. When we had a problem with accessing the internet, I went to the reception and the young lady on duty offered to come to our room to... More

It's been around for a while now, but is still functional and well laid out. There are plenty of facilities within the complex that make conferences easy and accessible. Restaurants are okay - the staff are friendly and welcoming. Walking distance to Sylvia Park shopping complex for those of us that like to shop. Handy to public transport - and... More

An out of the way hotel, but I was attending a Conference there, so perfect for that. Bathrooms have been renovated beautifully with big full size bath. Service is polite and functional but it is not a hotel looking to go out of its way to better a customer's experience. Good value for money, clean and functional rooms, courteous service.

Great location south of the city, closer to the airport and easily accessed via Highway 1. Chose this location for proximity to Mt Smart Stadium, but was pleasantly surprised by the excellent accommodations. Helpful staff made inquiries for us at a restaurant and then arranged for a taxi. Highly recommend, especially if you have your own car.
