Just back from a few days in Auckland & spent two nights at the Auckland City Oaks. Very reasonable, pleasant staff on checking in & out & we had a very spacious 2 bedroom apartment. With washing machine, dish washer, oven & full kitchen you could easily stay here for quite some time. A bit run down & needing a... More

We stayed here on Saturday 6th Sept for 1 night, arriving from Sydney. Only about 10mins walk to the centre of town. Customer Service was excellent, even letting us leave our car in the car park while we went to do various activities until 2pm. The Apartment was neat and clean. Wasn't expecting breakfast so was surprised to find fruit,... More

This is a great little apartment hotel only a few minutes' walk from the middle of town. Good value, excellent and helpful reception staff (hey, this is NZ we're talking about, where this kind of thing is normal). We stayed only 1 night. It can be hard to find one nighters in this category and at this price! Apart from... More

A standard apartment, functional, not luxurious, but with all the stuff you may need for a brief stay. No parking other than at a fee, but you can park outside overnight at no cost (until 8 am). It is a no-frills hotel, but you will be in a good location in central Auckland and can walk there from most areas... More

Very well placed for ferries and central Auckland. Great harbour views from higher floors. reasonable swimming pool, but for laps rather than leisure swimming. Well equipped, clean and wonderfully comfortable bed.

Partner and I stayed for two nights for a romantic getaway. On arrival could barely understand the receptionist. Was confused why our continental would be delivered to our room before 8pm and there was no general info available about our place of stay. Continental breakfast was a childs play lunch. This is not a place you'd want to take your... More

Stayed for one night on business - great room, little kitchen, washing machine and good size bathroom. Friendly staff but limited parking which can be frustrating if you have nowhere to park. Breakfast in the morning is not the greatest but it's ok. Overall a decent stay at a great price in the CBD.

Stayed here for a few days during vacation in Auckland. The rooms are self-contained with kitchen & white ware available to guests. Location is a bit away from busy Queen Street but it will not take you more than 5 to 7 minute walk to get there. But walking from Queen Street back to the hotel might be a challenge... More
