Hotel is a little out of the restaurant/cafe area as we had trouble finding somewhere nearby the next morning for a simple breakfast before catching a flight. Rebo restaurant in the foyer was lovely for dinner. Room was nice and clean and quiet and the rain shower was excellent. Concierge staff were very helpful and the room had FREE Wifi (great when travelling with 3 teenagers).

Dear rmb0208,

I appreciate you taking the time to review your experience at SKYCITY Hotel. I am thrilled you enjoyed your stay in our double deluxe guest room. The team and I are proud of our newly refurbished designer bathrooms in our double deluxe rooms which feature European tap ware and walk-in showers with ‘rain shower’ shower heads.

On a future visit I invite you to speak with Concierge regarding suggestions for breakfast restaurants in close proximity to SKYCITY Hotel. Our team will be only too happy to assist.

The team and I hope you had a safe return trip to Perth.

Many Thanks,

We were visiting Auckland for a "girls Shopping trip" so the location of Sky City was our 1st choice.
We got a fantastic surprise on check in to be upgraded from a standard twin room to the most beautiful huge superior twin suite! This made our day Thanks so Much Sky City.
The duty managers name was Karon, he was so lovely and obliging in every possible way. We went to reception to thank him and tell him everything was perfect and he gave us a bottle of bubbly and some chocolates to enjoy our stay even more.
The room was laid out really nicely 2 queen sized beds in a huge separate bedroom with huge flat screen TV, lovely lounge with big TV comfy couches, chair, ottoman etc. huge walk in wardrobe, bathroom has separate bath and vanity area and walk thru a bit further to a separate area to big shower box, and toilet. So much space throughout this Suite and lovely fixtures and fittings. Everything was spotless and well maintained.
It was an absolute pleasure to stay at Sky City and we will certainly be returning. Thanks so much Karon for the most amazing friendly service ever.

We stayed in SkyCity twice during our trip to New Zealand, at the very start and the very end and had booked into a Premium King Room as I had found a good deal on one of the booking sites found here.. When we arrived the first day, the lady checking us in told us that we had been upgraded to a suite! Having lost our luggage and having a long journey, this was great news indeed! Our room wasn't ready, however she requested right away that it would be cleaned and had us fill out all the paper work and gave us a password for the wifi that we could use in the lobby. We left our bags with the concierge coat check, went for lunch and got our key to our most beautiful, big room with TWO giant beds and a big screen tv, a seperate sitting room with the same tv, a shower rooom and toilet room and a walk in wardrobe!! Amazing! Especially as I had fallen over on the steps of the art museum and had twisted my foot quite badly, it was a pleasure to have the space to relax in!

The only downside to the suite was that the wifi connection was, at times, infuriatingly inconsistent.

When we went to check out, the same lady who had checked us in (her name was Chansey and she was the duty manager I think) also was checking us out. Very impressively she remembered my name and directed us to where our bus would begin to take us on our New Zealand adventure!

The second time we returned, we were not as lucky with the upgrade, but still, the Premium King room was perfect. The bed could fit three people comfortably (there was space for three lots of full sized pillows across) and two people divinely! Enough room to starfish without encroaching! The wifi this time worked perfectly and quicly, so I'm not sure what happened the first time, either the room is not well posiitoned for the wifi ir they were just having an off day!

We didn't eat at all in any of the hotels' bars and restaurants, we did venture to look at the noodle bar, but it didn't look too appealing and the doorman to the casino was hesitant to recommend it (after he had asked me for ID, which at 28 years old is very flattering!), so we looked elsewhere!

The hotel is very well located - obviosuly you are right at the Sky Tower, but also at the Intercity Bus Station for onward journeys, as well as the shopping street of Queen Street, a ot of restaurants, bars, supermarkets, take out food places etc.

We arrived at Skycity - 2 adults and 3 children and because they didnt have interconnecting premium rooms we were upgraded to a suite plus a premium room so we could be close to the children. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable. We had breakfast included and there was lots of good choices for all of us. The staff were all very helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our two days and two nights spent there. We would stay again

Skycity was a good value and a great location. The only complaint I have is when we arrived we were asked to put our luggage to the side and after we got our room number we turned around to get our luggage and it was gone. They should ask you if you want your luggage taken to the room. I did not appreciate someone just taking it without asking. Other than that it was a quiet hotel for the large size.
