Mt Eden offers the best free views of Auckland city with both harbours as well the city and suburbs visible from the top. A great place for sunsets as well as the sparkling lights of the city.

No. I believe they have a policy of 7 day rental maximum. We used 2 people's name to book for 10 days while playing at the World Masters Games. The cost is as per their website (daily rate, depending on the room).
