“Restful, quiet, well laid out, well equipped”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2010

We stayed here for a couple of night mid October, before flying back to Australia. Previuosly we have stayed in the CBD and in Manukau. Prior to our check in, the hosts had decided that the original room we booked would be too small, so they upgraded us free of charge from the Waterfront upper level family unit to the Waterfront upper level deluxe apartment. It was roomy and spacious, extremely well equipped, clean and well stocked. It even had a Nespresso coffee maker that was so simple to use. The balcony directly overlooked the bay, and we enjoyed sitting outside watching the sun set. You cannot fault the location for quiet, plus several very good restaurants nearby - we ate at the Beach House, which was fantastic. Will certainly be staying here again on our next visit to Auckland.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2010

We were here for a wedding, and the Bride and Groom set us all up at this hotel. What a find! And what a great price. If I were to go to NZ again I'd stay here for a few days again. Yes the road is right out front but it didn't bother us. Right across the street is the beach. We had a lovely front deck and a little kitchenette and an extra bedroom. The laundry facilities were great, cute litte pool. It was perfect for us and if you had kids with you (which we didn't) it would be perfect. The bed was hard as a rock. But other than that it was great!
