We arrived here around 8pm very tired after coming straight from Auckland Airport and we were surprised to see how immaculate and clean our apartment was. Bed was comfortable, kitchen amenities very tidy including a dishwasher, very spacious indeed! The only thing that probably needs a bit of work is the grouting in the shower area, other than that it was quiet and relaxing for us. Breakfast in the morning again was beautifully presented.

This motel was not particularly well rated but presented to us at the right price. When we arrived the room was well presented and better than we anticipated. So what was wrong? Mould in the grout of the shower 10c fix! Big bags of laundry in the stair well. Find a room folk. Muddy access to the room from the car park. Apart from that a pleasant stay!

Bed poorly made, stripped to remake and the underlay was disgustingly flithy, pulled back the net curtains to see the view, they were rotten and rippen in my hand, the bathroom had some mould, and the back of the bathroom door again was flithy, as was the kitchen blind and the kitchen walls, had a lovely little vistor, a small brown cochroach. Had to ask for more soap and toilet paper. Now for the restaurant - don't bother, it all comes out of the freezer! Fresh seasonal vegetables means over cooked frozen vegetables. Asked for the fish in the fish and chips to be grilled - no can't do, it comes freezen. The car park is a disgrace - totally flooded and muddy, as is the drive way to the car park. I couldn't wait to leave! A real shame as this property has fantastic views and is in a great location. Really need to take some major changes

Dear Valued Guest, Thanks for your review. Without constructive feedback, we will not be able to improve as a property. There are a number of issues raised in your feedback that will help us improve as a property, like the standard of our building and restaurant. I have addressed your concerns with relevant department heads and will follow up personally to understand what we can do better as a property. It is disappointing to hear that our standards were not up to par and I would like to extend my sincere apologies. We are undertaking a thorough maintenance check and working on up upgrades and the next time you are at our property there will be noticeable differences. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Warm regards, Assistant Manager

This was our second visit to VR Takapuna. On our first visit two years ago, we were very impressed. Our room was large and spacious, and included a dishwasher, laundry facilities. This trip started with a poor impression of the outside and grounds. The gardens consisted of exposed black polythene, where the bark had disappeared, dead plants in a few scruffy pots and even a dirty cotton bud lying exposed. This definitely did not create a good impression. Once inside the hotel, the room was as nice as on our last visit. The bed was beautifully comfortable and the shower very good. Sadly we tried out the gymnasium and found the equipment all very dilapidated... and making loud noises when used... and I am small! It would really not take much for VR Takapuna to get up their presentation and appeal.

Really impressed with size, decor and facilities in this executive apartment with private outdoor seating area. Large bathroom included washing machine, dryer. Price per night included extensive selection for continental breakfast and also a voucher for two free wines at the bar, with or without dinner. Mobility parking close to entrance, but found the uneven paving stones were slightly hazardous, especially when it rained. Toilet sited near the restaurant was extremely small compared to the facilities in the apartment. What a fantastic view of the marina and bridge from the restaurant, especially the bridge lighting at night.
