Walking distance to Museum, hospital, University, AUT etc, secure/free parking facilities - happy for car to be left there following day. Staff were friendly and helpful. Two computers available just off reception area (also internet free to use anywhere in building) Didn't hear any traffic noise. One of the cleanest rooms I've stayed in.

It's like an old peoples home. Incredibly dated decor, circa 1980 I know it's a cancer society property and its in a brilliant location for the hospital but it would benefit from an update. I hadnt seen a shower over a bath in years until I stayed here. It was nice and quiet and there are excellent communal kitchen facilities,... More

Fabulous friendly staff, clean rooms, enjoyable stay😃 This accommodation often isn't available as the main purpose is to house people and their families receiving treatment for cancer. It's not advertised on booking sites but is situated opposite the Auckland Domain and opposite Auckland Hospital. It is quiet with beautiful grounds.

Stayed here with my husband and daughter while visiting a relative in hospital. Would recommend. Staff helpful, room tidy, clean and quiet. Although our room didn't have any breakfast making facilities (just kettle) .. so you might want to check what your room will have in it (as breakfast options apart from the hospital cafés are a bit limited on...

We really enjoyed our family stay here. We had self contained unit with two bedrooms and living space with kitchenette. There are also rooms that dont have a kitchen. Well equipped, clean shared kitchen like in backpackers are available for these guests. It's mostly used by hospital patients and families. The garden area is beautiful. the central location was perfect.

We've stayed here several times now. We love the central location, the fact that secure parking is included in the tariff, the friendly staff and the fact that we are supporting the Cancer Society when we stay. Last time we stayed it was very hot and humid so we left the balcony door open- which meant we did hear quite... More

Right next to the hospital and is primarily for patients families for which it works well. Not a normal hotel/motel so read more on their website. We found it clean tidy quiet and handy to the hospital. Not cheap but hopefully any profits are going to the cancer society .

This lodge is run by the Cancer Foundation so your stay helps support this great cause and assists families needing these facilities who live outside the Auckland region.

We stayed here off and on for various times ranging from one night to five nights. The staff are very helpful. Parking is great. Stayed because of our hospital visits. Kitchens and eating area and outside seating is wonderful. Rooms are basic but have everything you need and even a little balcony on some. The area is excellent. Very close... More
