We stayed at St martins apartments in Auckland for four days for a family holiday. After looking around we picked a spacious two bedroom apartment here on the basis of good reviews and excellent pricing.
Overall I thought the apartment was excellent - the value was great (significantly cheaper than other options especially taking into consideration the free family breakfast daily),.The bedrooms were possibly slightly small, but in reality we weren't spending large amounts of time there so that wasn't a problem. Everything was clean - no nasty surprises - and the facilities were good.The staff were very friendly - giving us advice on how to get around, and generally taking an interest. We didn't have to complain about anything which really was a bonus - it doesn't often happen, even in some of the most expensive places I've stayed! We find it exteremly good value and quality!
There was not any lots of inner-city noise, .
All-in-all we were completely happy with our stay at St martins Waldorf and would happily stay there again.

Stayed here twice over the last few weeks. I had a two bed apartment each time (must have been an upgrade as I only needed a 1 bed). Both apartments were clean, tidy and well maintained. The kitchens were good, although no oven. Dishwasher, including free powder, was very welcome. The bed was very comfortable.

There was a teeny outdoor swimming pool but it was in the shade by the late afternoon, so I didn't get to try it out. More of a plunge pool than a swimming pool.

Breakfast was basic but adequate - cereals, toast, yogurt, tinned fruit, juice and tea/coffee.

My only grouch was that I was on the shady side of the hotel in the afternoon, so the (very small) balcony was a waste. I couldn't find anywhere outside to get fresh air and sunshine, so I ended up walking over to the Domain park as I hate being stuck inside on a sunny evening.

Room Tip: If evening sunshine is important to you, ask for one on the west side rather than the east overlooki...

Hello SCJM and thank you for your review of Waldorf St Martins.

We are glad that you enjoyed the amenties in the room for your recent stay. I am sorry that you didn't get to use your oven - maybe next time you stay. This is located under the elements in the kitchen.
Even though our swimming pool is small it is heated from 1st September through to 31st March and is open from 7am - 7pm for your convenience. So please feel free to use this during these months. The heating is turned off for from April to the end of August as people are not inclined to swim during these months
We look forward to seeing you back in the future.

What a great find, having tried lots of Auckland hotels and coped with the usual small rooms finding the Waldorf apartments for the same or cheaper price was a lovely surprise. I was on the 17th floor looking out over the harbour and sat on my balcony watching the sunset feeling very holidayish (even though I was in Auck for work!). I had a room with air conditioning and would always request that as with all the lovely sun pouring in it was a hot spot.The breakfast and pool area is lovely with the Grafton Rd oak trees casting dappled shade around the pool. I cant believe people complain about the noise - of course it noisy, its in a busy central city location - if you want quiet stay in the suburbs! Funnily enough a very expensive hotel is over the road so the noise doesn't seem a deterrent to the wealthy tourists that frequent it. Only one minor thing was they needed to do a little more dusting!

Room Tip: go for a room as high up as you can with air con; you can get room with either view of Domain and gr...

bianca5699 - Thank you for your review of St Martins.
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and I agree the sunsets and harbour views are magic from the balconys.
The recently installed air conditioning is making a difference to our guest stays and we are pleased that you have experienced this.
I have asked our Housekeeping department to take extra care with ensuring that all dusting is done.

Stifling hot is the only description possible - in 2013 you just do not expect to find an unairconditioned hotel room - especially not one badged as luxury! Can't have windows open at night due to road noise on the 17th floor! Absolutely ruins the stay!

Thank you for your review Bigpat1971.
We are currently in the process of installing air conditioning in rooms. This will be an ongoing project over the next few months. We hope that when you stay again you will ask to stay in one of the upgraded rooms so that you can sleep better and enjoy your stay more.

Rooms were tidy and clean, however for a party of four adults, it can feel a bit small especially in the dining/living area. Everything was provided in terms of whiteware, utensils, laundry facilities, etc., which we were happy about. The addition of an air conditioning unit (especially in summer) would be nice and considering the apartment is located next to a busy highway, it can be quite noisy - even at night. The location itself is quite central, within walking distance of the CBD and KRoad. The service was just OK, nothing to brag about.

Thank you for your review of St Martins Peterita.
We are sorry that you found our service just OK.
You will be pleased to hear that we are starting installation of some air conditioning units within the next couple of weeks.
You are right in saying that we are so close and in walking distance to many attractions and parks within the CBD.

4 of us stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. It was spacious, clean, and comfortably appointed. It appeared to be well under 10 years old. Our room looked out over a lot of greenery (Auckland Domain) but unfortunately also the highway which was noisy at times, so we kept the window shut at night even though it was mid-summer.

While overall I liked it, some things to note:
- no washing machine in the room - they're downstairs
- pathetic water pressure in the shower - very difficult to rinse out the shampoo
- the beds are incredibly soft so a bit uncomfortable for those with sore backs
- there are no supermarkets within reasonable walking distance. We had a car, so not an issue for us.
- parking was $18/day

They serviced the room once every 2 days, which was fine for us. All the staff were very friendly.

Saikou - Thank you for your review.
The view over the Domain and water is quite spectacular isn't it - especially in the morning at sunrise.
I think the low water pressure in your shower was caused by a power cut that affected the Grafton area and resulted in low water pressure due to air in the pipes. This has now been rectified.
If you visit again we do have a supermarket that is a five minute walk away or there are many buses that go to and from one of the bigger supermarkets.
