After spending a wonderful 3 weeks exploring Northland, New Zealand, my husband and I wanted to find a hotel for the night in Auckland as we were flying out early the next morning. We wanted to have a full day of exploring downtown Auckland so we arrived very early in the morning at the hotel. The staff were so accommodating! If a room had not been ready they were more than willing to look after our luggage and take it to the room once it was available. However they were able to get us into our room very early that morning so that we could stow our luggage and get out and about! ... and off we went! This hotel is located so handily to all sorts of major attractions in downtown Auckland that we were able to walk to whatever we wanted to see.
We were so surprised at the quality of the room for the price we were paying. It was huge... with a kitchenette and sitting area which included a lovely flatscreen TV (upon which we watched a movie that night while lying in bed as you could turn the TV either way). If one needs privacy in the bed area one has the option to pull a folding screen wall across the width of the room. Despite the location (right in the heart of downtown Auckland) we did not hear any excessive street noise, although we are really not bothered by things like that... hey, if you choose to stay in the middle of a huge city there's going to be street noise if you open a window, right? The bed was extremely comfortable with a lovely down duvet...
Since my laptop had crashed I was relieved to find that there was a computer that we could use in the lobby. One gets a code for 30 minute usage... great for checking email and flight times etc.
The staff were able to arrange for a taxi to take us to the airport very early the next morning for a rate that was much better than what we had originally arranged. They (the staff) were extremely pleasant and helpful. We had breakfast in the attached restaurant both mornings and were pleased with the food and great coffee.
All in all a great, though too short, stay at the Scenic Hotel!
