Got a good deal off wotif.com. The room was ok but basic . Bed wasn't that comfortable. Balcony was very small but at least we had one. Staff was friendly. Only used the pool once but it was pretty big. My highlight was the valet parking. Good location was clubbing.

I got a good rate through my company thats why we chose to stay there. Really enjoyed our stay! Beds were comfortable, great movie channel. Really clean hotel. Reception was... More

Our family loved our stay at the Grand Chancellor Auckland Hotel. Front Desk reception was friendly, warm & helpful. Our room was spacious and very clean.. This hotel has now become our family's favorite.

We were looking forward to staying here on our way back to Australia and were quite disappointed. The room was nice though nothing to write home about. The lack of internet access was frustrating, we paid for 24 hours access and the wireless still did not work. The staff claimed no responsibility as a third party provides internet service. Probably... More

This Hotel could be amazing but was just good which is a shame as it is in a great location, has parking, a restaurant, fitness room and a great pool but unfortunately to get to the parking you have to constantly go to reception and ask to be allowed in, a fob key system would work surely? The fitness room... More

Service = disappointing. Front desk was not friendly upon arrival, not particularly helpful and kept talking over the top of me (a pet hate) Rooms = poor quality, run down, old. The price certainly shows here, with threadbare linens, no lamps in the bedroom, and no remotes for the TV. I had the worst room in the hotel (room 107,... More

Booked this place to be down town Auckland but regretted the choice the moment I walked into the room and it just got worse from there. I stay in a lot of hotels around NZ and I have paid less than $100 for better furnished rooms. Old TV No batteries in remote Bedside lamp faulty and test certificate expired No... More

List of issues: - Stains all over ben linen - Asked reception to change linen, went out for dinner and visited the casino for a few hours, came back to stained linen still on bed. Staff threw a screwed up replacement blanket on spare roll-along bed.... More

We stayed at the Grand Chancellor on Saturday night 19th July 2014, and it is about the 5th time we have stayed there. It has become our hotel of choice when we come to Auckland City as the General Manager - Graham Hill and his staff are always so very obliging and helpful. We always try and book a 3... More

I had an early morning train to catch and arrived quite late at night - this hotel proved to be perfectly located as I had just a short walk across to the Wynyard Quarter for dinner and then short walk to the train station. Although I never used any of it (actually fell asleep before I even got into bed),... More
