This was our 4th stay with Spencer. Why??? Because we loved it. Sadly we won't be returning. The Spencer was changed, or evolved. Whatever, the changes doesn't suit us compared to what we can get elsewhere. For a start, it's not cheap, this place is not your budget hotel, which is why Mich and I kept going back. But to...

I spent a night in a suite in early September and it was very comfortable. The room was spacious and well appointed with a bed that I had a great night's sleep on. The view was fantastic, though the balcony, while it may be private, was a bit narrow to actually sit out on. Breakfast in the morning was good... More

The rooms are exceptionally large and views can be great from upper floors. However some rooms look tired, and its a very pre-2010 experience. There is no free broadband Wifi, no respectable coffees from a lounge expresso machine, no bag table, no seat cushions, a shower which sprayed all over the floor, and a fridge which leaked. So if you... More

Very nice room with a separate bedroom, lounge with large sofa, full kitchen (inc dishwasher), and laundry. My room has lovely view over Rangitoto Island and back towards the Sky Tower. Huge beds with lots of pillows. Well appointed bathroom.

I stay a couple of nights once a year, for work. Excellent service and well-presented room. Any room niggles very minor and not enough for me to drop rating. Restaurant meets expectations, also, though I think a machine that does 'foamy coffee' would be a great addition to the breakfast bar. Consistently good experience and highly recommended.

This is my second stay at this hotel - last time was 2 years ago. I was not as satisfied this time around. I stayed in a 1 bedroom suite with wifi package. Wifi reception was good. The suite layout with fully equipped kitchen and 2 TVs was very comfortable. However I did feel like the cleanliness of the room... More

I've stayed here a few times due to having meetings in the area. It's quite a big building for the surroundings, and I think it's partially residential. The staff are nice and efficient, and there are great views out of the rooms no matter which side you're on; last trip I had terrific views of Auckland and could watch clouds... More

Our family stayed at the Spencer on Byron for one night as we travelled south from the Bay of Islands as we didn't want to spend the night in downtown Auckland. This was a great spot. A short walk to the shops and beach in Takapuna and our room was spotless and had everything we needed. Would definitely stay here... More
