Very disappointed after the website said "Grafton Oaks Hotel Auckland New Zealand is where price conscious travellers go for top-notch Auckland Hotels". While we were from out of town, very price conscious, booked because it read up ok and was very handy to where we had to go, we were very disappointed in the overall experience. Whilst the linen was... More

Well, the location is really not ideal if your just a foreigner visiting the city and you don't have a car. It's not in the most interesting neighborhood, and a bit far away from the sites and coffee shops, but there is a big park near by to keep up with your jogging if you like. If you have a... More

Dear Venezelda: Appreciate your comments on our excellent customer service and cleanliness in the Hotel. Located by Grafton Bridge, a ten minutes walk will take you across the bridge to K'Road businesses, Queen Street eateries and University. Yes, of course lush green Domain is within minutes walking along Auckland Hospital comlex. Regards More

Booking a last minute get away for the wife and I, we were quite surprised at how cheap the rooms were. Our room had an amazing view during the day and the room was quite large for the price. A point of improvement could possibly be the introduction of a microwave in rooms - and having to take the lift... More

Dear Schwaam: Excellent comments you have provided and done me such a big favour. Small points in your upright comments, are not generally noticeable to us during daily routine.

We had to be near the Auckland Hospital, so the Hotel was very convenient, 700 meters from the hospital. So just the ideal place. Very Cheap.. First impressions we just great. But just don't look down. We have stayed all over the world, but never seen such filth on the floor. The variety of hair in every room of the... More

Dear Woolies: Sorry for this incident. We have double layer of inspections from housekeeping staff and this incident could be just one off.

Our room was a nice size, however, there was no air conditioning, bed was very soft, and the bathroom was small. The staff on the other hand was very friendly and helpful. We arrived before check in time and they locked our luggage up safely so we could explore.

Really cheap. 5 nights $61/night. A bit dodgy and a bit grotty but you can see the new management is trying. What can you expect for this price anyway...certainly not getting the ritz. The staff were friendly and helpful. The bed was clean and comfy and the shower pretty clean. Looks as though the cleaners need to put their glasses... More

Location was great as we needed to be near Auckland Hospital but that mean't getting very little sleep as the hotel is right next to the motorway by under Grafton bridge. Earplugs definitely a necessity. Hotel a bit past its use by date.

Dear Omokannie: Motorway is right on the door step to get into and out of city without getting into chaotic traffic jams. During night, closing the window could minimise noise. Minimum noise though expected unlike countryside resort. Hotel building is not brand new, but very neat and tidy. For readers: With unbeatable price, we strive to provide best customer service,...

I stayed here based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and on what seemed a reasonable price. This place isn't the Ritz, but it is clean and the staff very helpful. If you're looking for somewhere to put your head down for the night if you're passing through, then this hotel is fine. The manager was very welcoming and lovely... More
