We had just two days in Auckland at the end of a cruise, we chose Skycity Grand because of its central location. our room was on floor 18, with a great view of the city and harbour, as well as being able to see lunatics jump of sky tower (don't worry, they are attached to cables!) our room was large...

We booked a city view room, thinking it might be nice to look out over the city, but the room was too low to get a decent view, so we upgraded to a harbour view, and were moved to the 11th floor which was a little better. Rooms were comfortable, not overly large, but serviceable. We just needed to repack... More

Spent my 40th birthday at The Grand in a king premium suite. Was expensive but well worth it. The suite was amazing. Massive bathroom. Separate guest toilet/powder room. Walk-in wardrobe. Couldn't have been happier with the suite. Great selection of restaurants close by. Make sure to book as some of the restaurants are very busy. We were on the 18th... More

This hotel has nicely appointed rooms with free wifi, and is centrally located. The service was ok, but not great. There are limited room service options, but quite a few restaurants nearby. It is a Casino hotel and feels a little impersonal.

Immediately adjacent to the Sky City tower thing, (from which my wife flatly refused to sky dive), the hotel reception was swift and efficient. Large room, king size bed with a view of the city. Harbour area was in easy walking distance - there are restaurants everywhere! Breakfast in the hotel was great, and the staff were friendly and polite.

My husband and I stayed at SkyCity Grand Hotel for two non-consecutive nights. On Friday night, we checked into the 16th floor without a harbour view. I really enjoyed the stay and was excited to return on Sunday. Well, that night we were on the 17th floor and had a harbour view. This was a lucky coincidence as it was... More

We stayed at SkyCity on our final night in New Zealand, glad our travel agent saved this luxury hotel for last. We were greeted quickly, and they were kind enough to upgrade our room to a king suite at no charge. The next morning one of tours was late and we arranged for a later check out. Even though they...

First time at Skycity grand hotel, very good experience. Room is spacious and modern. Excellent service of staff. Stayed at 17th floor with just the city view but it didn't matter at all because most the time we were out. If you love to spend extra money, I'd recommend for a sea view room. The bathroom has separate bath and... More

Well located, hotel very big and has a casino feel to it. Restaurants need to be booked on check in, or go to the marina area where there are other options. Breakfast was in too small a room, plus only filter coffee is included, but we were not advised until check out! Disappointing was the number of beggars on the... More

I stayed only one night on my way back from the Southern Island (Blenheim) with the long haul flight back to Europe the next day. I have to say that the three main strengths of the hotel are: the location, just metres from the iconic Auckland Sky Tower, 10 mn. Walk from the stunning Auckland Harbour, the comfortable rooms and... More
