The Spencer on Byron Hotel
Ranked #1 of 7 Hotels in Takapuna
Reviewed August 21, 2013

I needed a place to stay in Takapuna for 2 nights in August as I was attending a conference there.
Bar and dinning was brilliant and the staff were fantastic.
I had room service on the first night, which was divine.

The room was spacious with more than adequate facilities.

Highly recommended for business travellers.

Lovely experience at the Spencer. Beautiful suite, lovely staff, amazing food. Only two small things marred the trip - minor mistake getting something sent to my room, and inflexibility on the part of reception when checking in. The latter caused a minor mishap after an error on my part and marred the experience slightly for me. Facilities splendid nonetheless.

Room Tip: Suites are excellent and roomy. Brilliant for a longer stay.

During a business visit to NZ, stayed here on 16th floor and it was amazing.

Likes:
1. Views: Stunning views of Auckland. To left was ocean and up straight was city. You also get to see the stunning curved bridge that connects Auckland city to Takapuna. Also, witnessed a double rainbow just outside of hotel.
2. Rooms: Huge. It was more of an apartment than hotel room. Also, there is a balcony with great views.
3. Location: Easy access to highway and walking distance to restaurants of Takapuna and even closer to the beach.
4. Service: Great service to keep your room clean as well as at the reception.
5. Cab rank just outside the hotel, very good thing.

Dislikes:
1. Lobby: Once you are on the floor above, the lobby stinks of cigarette smoke.
2. Rooms: Can get annoying if the person next door is too loud.
3. Food: Nothing impressive.
4. Breakfast: wasn't included in my package so had to pay for it. not worth the money with amount of choices offered. bit second class like.

Room Tip: Ask for the room facing Auckland city & the beach on a higher floor. Dine outside, better than...

Stayed two nights. it's clearly a hotel that caters to largely Asian travellers. It has the typical generic dark timber furniture found in most Asian hotels. Reception and staff were friendly and helpful and were able to satisfactorily sort out a reservation error. It is a generic 4 star hotel, so it's hard to find anything particlar to fault, or equally anything that stands out as "different".

The Spencer on Byron hotel is great value, especially for long stays. It is in a prime location in Takapuna close to the beach, and amongst many cafes, restaurants, a mall, and shops. The service was very friendly and accommodating. Although it isn't the most modern hotel, it is comfortable and clean.
