Modernise the rooms, read the special requests on your online bookings from guests and this will help you to improve in my opinion. My requests hadn't been read sadly however that was quickly resolved. Dinner was all good and we were impressed until the fillet steak arrived, certainly not fillet and poor quality it was acknowledged and another replacement served... More

We arrived home from Hong Kong sleep deprived at 10 that morning, got to the hotel at 11.30 - way before check in time. The lovely man on reception found us a room then and there so we could check in and have a sleep. This was much appreciated as we had a concert to go to that night. Room... More

Had a wonderful stay at the Spencer on Byron. Clean and spacious, comfortable bed. Very handy to the shops. Loved the views also even though it was a rainy night. Only have one complaint and that was the lack of parking you provide. I think I got the last one available and as it happens I got a puncture in... More

We stayed with another couple in a 2 bedroom suite and we're all extremely happy. Very tidy and clean. We were a little late for the restaurant but they did some bar snacks for us which was appreciated. The car park was full so we had to park out on the road. We would stay there again

Really enjoyed my stay here, perfect for both business and leisure. My room had a kitchenette, spacious lounge and large double/king size bed, all of which offered amazing views of north shore (other rooms so I am told also had stunning views of Auckland). There is a pool although did not manage to see it, a gym which was in... More

We've stayed at and reviewed the Spencer before, as ordinary guests, but this time we rented through Bookings.com. It was a little complicated but the 17th floor room was in the best view point possible. This is a privately owned unit so we saved, maybe, $65 or less per day. The unit is exactly as represented in the B.Com advert.... More

Clean, well maintained, but nothing fancy, it's all reasonable and everything functions well but I thought apart from the view, there was nothing really standing out for what I paid, maybe the location pays for it all with a fantastic view. It's certainly more spacious than standard hotel room area, with kitchen and laundry included it feels more like a... More

We found the room comfortable, generously-sized and with great views over Lake Pupuke and out to sea. The location close to central Takapuna on Auckland's North Shore was perfect for our requirements. We attended a private, formal dinner for 85 in the hotel yesterday evening which flowed seamlessly with very attentive staff looking after everyone. We chose from a set... More
