We booked one of the "villas" for a week of work/holiday with the family. The villa is quaint, very clean and tidy, and everything you need is provided. 50 metres to the beach, 30 metres to the Takapuna beach cafe and an easy walk to all the shops. Service was friendly, efficient and attentive. Facilities like the pool are getting a little tired, but that didn't effect our family enjoyment at all. We will definitely stay here again in one of the villas.

Stayed: July 2013, traveled with family

great atmosphere and facilities. interesting room layout with the kitchenette, bed and spa bathe all in the same room. Unfortunatelty there was an unpleasant odour in the room each time we return from various activities. having said that it was still a good place to base oneself for restaurants and walks

Only stayed one night but found the room to be clean and comfortable and reasonably well laid out. The staff were friendly and helpful. The Inn is close to the Takapuna shops and the beach. Overall a nice motel like room with cooking facilities and tea and coffee making facilities. The only drawback is that the heating is not sufficient for the size of the room.

Stayed 4 weeks. We found staff and management first class, helpful and friendly, the rooms were well equipped very clean and in an excellent location for both down town Auckland (15 minute bus ride).and the centre of tankapunta. If your after a nice quite comfortable and relaxing time the emerald inn is ideal. 2minute walk from the beach

Room Tip: Started our stay in the appartments which were great but booked a villa and found that even better as more space

Best selling point is the proximity to Takapuna beach. However, if you are bringing a big luggage, do remember to ask for a room at ground floor as there is no lift at all. The room comes with an electric heater and frankly during winter time it seems to be less promising to withstand the cold. Shower room is not designed for user-friendliness as there is no place to hang your clothes nor put toiletries. Wireless internet is charged based on usage and the room rate is a bit pricey, maybe due to its location. The Inn is near to shopping and dining areas however i tried out a few restaurants and the quality of food is so-so. If you are a die-hard beach fan this is the inn for you. Otherwise there are other better choices around.
