My wife and I stayed at the Takapuna Oaks on our first night in New Zealand and were very happy with our decision to stay here. We arrived a bit earlier than the check-in time and though our room wasn't ready yet, we were able to store our bags with the front desk and take off into town.
The room itself was great. We had a living room with a mini kitchen, separate bedroom, and an ensuite bathroom, all of which were very clean. And the price was very reasonable compared to some places closer to downtown where you would pay much more and get much less. The Takapuna Oaks even offers each guest a free ferry ticket across the bay to the city centre if you want to go there but not bring your car with you. We didn't get a chance to take advantage of that offer but it's nice that they do that. Oh, and there's free wifi and complimentary continental breakfast included too.
Just a quick side note, if you're too tired from a day of exploring or you just got in from your long overseas flight, the hotel restaurant on the top floor offers great views of the city and fantastic food. I've stayed in a lot of hotels and typically you overpay for a bad meal. That was not the case here though.
Overall, this was a great experience and I highly recommend basing yourself here for your Auckland stay.
