We stayed in Grafton Oaks Hotel whilst I had a placement at the Auckland Hospital. Location-wise it was amazing, easy to get to the hospital and a couple of good food places nearby. However, the hotel itself was very unpleasant. Dirty and noisy, mainly because of the staff. The lift was unusually decorated, I've never seen carpet on walls and... More

I stayed in this hotel while my husband was having heart surgery in Auckland City Hospital, it was very convenient, you could pay for parking at hotel and walk to hospital. I didn't really enjoy staying at Grafton Oak. However it is cheap to stay in this hotel especially in winter. The rooms are basic, and were not cleaned everyday... More

Booked this hotel online. Website made it out to be amazing before i discovered trip advisor. What a pighole. Minute you walk in the door it smells like curry. Absolute rude customer service from some young guy at desk could barely speak english. We were in our room for 2 minutes before we went back to front desk and asked... More

I am not sure why I chose this. The toilet bowl was stained, the room walls were too thin. At night there were so many guests running around (I am not sure why) and making too much noise. The lack of A/C implies opening window which in turn implies letting mosquitoes in. The fridge was too tiny. the bed sheets... More

I was worried with all the negative reviews...but this place was fine for our 2 nights in Auckland...the exterior definitely could use renovation as it looks like it hasn't been touched since the 70's...the interior looks like an old college dormitory...as do the rooms...but the rooms were clean and spacious with a fridge...internet wasn't super fast but it was free...

This is a terrible place to stay. Our room was dirty and we had to ask for more cups as there wasn't enough for three of us. There isn't any air conditioning so the room was very hot and if you opened the window the traffic noise was very loud. It is situated next to Auckland Starship Hospital and when... More

This is just a budget hotel and for the rate paid I wouldn't expect anything more. Although basic the room was spacious and clean. The hotel is well situated near the top end of Queen Street, walking distance from most of Auckland City attractions. Would definately recommended this hotel to the budget traveller

Once arrived at Grafton Oaks Hotel after a 8 hour drive I went to go check in when I was told that I was no longer staying at G.O Hotel that I have been reallocated to another hotel in New Market (another 15min drive) as the Hotel was under evaluation? As told by the receptionist who did not call prior... More

the first thing was that you have to pay to park at the motel, i didn't mind paying to park however the receptionist tried to get us to pay him instead of the paying machine and in turn we had to hand over our car keys.. not sure why this was necessary? As the pay machine only takes coins I... More

Came to Auckland for business and leisure. Stayed for 2 nights with my 3yr old Son and husband. The staff were friendly and helpful. Found our room on the 1st floor to be neat and tidy. Although, the tiled floors could do with a bit of a scrub. It had your basic amenities tea, coffee milk etc. the room didn't... More
