I have stayed here many times over the years and always appreciate the warm welcome and great service. The rooms have most of the comforts a traveller requires and the location is just so convenient with the beach, cafes, restaurants and Takapuna business precinct all a few minutes walk away. Full marks could be allocated if the rooms were air-conditioned,... More

I've stayed here twice and certainly recommend it. On my most recent visit I stayed in room 532 and will be asking for this on my next stay. It's on the second floor and provides more views than other rooms and the room has a fresh feel with excellent facilities. The rooms are spacious with a separate kitchenette and lounge.... More

I've stayed at this motel on many occasions over the years. It is always excellent with very friendly staff who have also been there for a very long time. Always kind. The location is superb. Close to the beach and also to some excellent restaurants. Of many places I've stayed in in this area of Auckland, this is by far... More

Found our clean nicely appointed room via a friendly note , with key kindly left out for us, as we arrived a bit late. Comfy beds and modern amenities. Very handy to Takapuna restaurants, yet very private and oasis like, nestled in beautiful established gardens . Had it been summer would have certainly enjoyed the pool and beach. Impressed. Would...

Bathroom made good use of limited space and shampoo, conditioner, even makeup removal wipe supplied. Only a minute walk to Takapuna beach and restaurants/shops.

Great location and nice rooms. Only downside was the dangerous whitetail spider that woke me up and walked all over me during the night (scary!). Pest control was called, but not after spraying room myself and another (sleepless) night. Was advised area is normally sprayed and controlled every 6 weeks, so I was just "unlucky".

Spent a week here with my husband. First time to New Zealand. Great location! Apartments are supplied with what everything you need. The only negative is the Internet is a total rip off. Most places now offer free wifi when staying here but not here.

The Emerald Inn is in a great location, just a stroll down the road to Takapuna beach and within walking distance to plenty of shops, restaurants and bus stops. We stayed in a ground floor one bedroom apartment at the back of the complex, which was clean comfortable and really quiet. The complex is surrounded by plants and trees giving... More

This hotel is a short walk to the ocean front, yet offers a quiet and comfortable stay. The hotel owners are extraordinarily helpful. The hotel is close to city of Auckland Transit, excellent restaurants and shopping. The beach front offers incredible walking opportunities. Chose low tide times to avoid getting wet.
