“Fantastic Buffet Breakast and Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2009

Restaurant was very good with and exceptional cold buffet (hot choices as well but the cold was excellent).

Try to get one of the rooms with a refurbished bathroom... big improvement.

Handyish for the shopping centre and the train into town but not too much else in the area.

Swimming pool not open in the winter. Very good parking area (more convenient at the back).

We stayed as a family of four here (2 x adults, 2 x children), and found the amenities to be perfect for us.

Our room had 2 x queen sized beds, and was clean and tidy when we entered it.

We managed to get a special internet deal which included a bottle of bubbly upon arrival, 2 x adult buffet breakfasts, and a late check-out (12 noon) for $169!!

There is a well-equipped (for a hotel!) gym, outdoor pool (unheated) and outdoor spa pool for guest's use.

Breakfast in the Voyager Restaurant turned out to be of an even better experience than when we last stayed there approx. 3-4 years ago. The food is fresh, tasty, and the variety of choices surpassing the more expensive/well known hotels which we have stayed at!

It is a 5 minute (or less) drive to the recently opened Sylvia Park shopping mall - so you can shop til you drop whilst staying here too!

  • Liked — The location; and superb buffet breakfast!
  • Disliked — Unheated outdoor swimming pool!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2005

Stayed at the Wipuna for 8 nights in Dec 05 having previously stayed in 2002.

Plus points
- rooms are excellent with comfortable beds. Some colleagues stayed on the 5th floor where the rooms were split level with loft style appartment bedrooms!
- breakfast is excellent (probably the best of the 100 odd hotels i've ever stopped in) but a little pricey at $24 a time.

The minus points are
- poor internet connectivity (dial up only)
- pretty slow service. got in on the saturday night when we arrived and ordered a snack from the bar (we were the only people there). 45 mins later - no food. chased the bar staff and it turned out they forgot to put in the order! service slow at times during breakfast too. front desk service excellent however.
- a few miles from downtown.
there is not too much around the hotel in the way of restaurants and the city is about 8 miles away. it's a $30 to $40 cab ride.

If i was in auckland for a holiday i wouldn't chose this hotel purely for the location, but for a business trip it was perfect.
