as it was so good last time. Joined with the family group (8) for dinner to celebrate 30 July 2012 - why not as it's the only one this year. Excellent buffet. Staff tops. Parking good. Cost acceptable. Will no doubt be back in the future as it's all good. Nothing else to add. Pleased we visited again.

I'm a reasonably regular business guest and every visit the staff are welcoming, the rooms are immaculate and the service is great. Room service is always timely and hot food is hot! Bathroom amenities are plentyful along with tea/coffee making facilities. A walk around the lake is on your doorstep along with wonderful views, no traffic noise and plenty of free parking. A preferred Auckland hotel is you're not wanting to be smack in the middle of the city.

I first stayed here in 1981 so it was strange returning in 2012. I was pleasantly surprised with the stylsh, modern rooms and the excellent restaurant & bar area.
There is a buffet meal that will please everyones taste and the Wellingtons Bar was well set out for a drink with clients.
The staff were all very helpful and it made being away for work easier.

Room Tip: Breakfast was very nice but pricey. I would be inclined to grab a breakfast downtown next time. Thi...

I have stayed here many times for business. I've been upgraded a few of these times to some fantastic rooms some with great views of the small lake. The hotel has great facilities and the restaurant serves a decent meal at a good price. The fitness centre is a little small but it does the trick. Parking is plentiful. I would have no hesitation staying here as a base for an Auckland Holiday. Just be aware it is a bit out of town but it is easy to get to.

We have stayed often , it's central enough because you can get on the train - look for the weekend deals, great stuff. Outdoor pool in the summer and outdoor spa for other seasons. Plenty of grass for running around for the kids. If you have your bike go fo the ride around the basin, if not, the bar is the place to be. Sylvia Park is great for shopping, go to the Garrison for Pizza.

Room Tip: Get a corner room for a large family - can't be beaten.

Stayed at the Waipuna Hotel for 1 night.
On first entering the room it was very hot as it was a hot day out
a quick call to reception on how to operate the airconditioning and all was sorted.
We got abit of a view of Panmure basin and was quite nice most of the view was of the carpark below.
The room had lots of space, though the carpet had lumps in it and looked tired could do with a new one. The decor looked like it has been refurbished but I didn't like the wall paper.
Bathroom was clean a tidy.
Just a drive down to Sylvia Park Shopping complex which is very handy.
All in all we enjoyed our night there

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the lagoon view
