Located in an excellent position to access the city on foot. Take the shuttle from the airport right to the hotel door. The rooms are excellent and the while the hotel offers good meals, other dining dining options nd bars are available within a comfortable walk.

Dear Travellingphillies,

Thank you for your review especially with regards to your comments on our excellent location. Hope you managed to make it down to the Viaduct and Britomart areas to experience some of the great restaurants and bars in that vicinity as well.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the future.

The Pullman is ok, but it's not 5 star. I worked in Hyatt, Intercontinental, and individual consulting management for many years, i'm sorry but this property hasn't changed much. I stayed for 2 nights two weeks ago. One thing i don't believe, is to come on here and rubbish a business for the sake of it. But, in saying that, I feel if you consider yourself a 5 star property, please supply a table in the room where I can eat my dinner with my partner, no table, very noisy air conditioner, bending down to pull a jug out of a very tired cupboard for a cup of coffee is unacceptable, bathroom is a shocker for 5 star property. The noise between floors is a disaster, I can't believe they haven't fixed it. The Foyer & Reception area are a delight, very tasteful decor. I enjoyed my meal in the Cafe, but i wonder why that beautiful 14th floor restaurant is shut on New Years Eve. I found most of the staff very good, especially reception, but restaurant staff have a very bad habit of setting tables and ignoring guests (happens everywhere) In my opinion Hotel ratings should be rated to 10 stars, there are just too many properties world wide rated 5 star, the difference is unbelievable. I rate the Pullman 6 stars out of 10. The Langham Auckland an 8.5 star property in my opinion.

Dear Garry,

Thank you for your review of our hotel. It is interesting that you mention the restaurant on the 14th floor as this was closed over 15 years ago by the previous owners. Since Pullman has taken over as of January 2011 we have made a number of positive changes including a new Lobby area, Restaurant, bar, Connectivity Centre and three new function rooms.

I would suggest that during your next stay that you upgrade to one of our suites as these would appear to better suit your needs with a separate lounge area including a table and chairs. We provide only a desk and chair in our entry level rooms. Another option would be to change over to one of our One or Two bedroom residence suites which in addition to a separate lounge area provide a private balcony, kitchen facilities and a walk in shower and large bathroom area.

Kind regards,

Rob McIntyre

We have just stayed 3 nights in a one bedroom suite on the 14th floor. This was our first stay here and as we stay in 5 star hotels around the world for about 45 nights per year I did not have high expectations of the Pullman. I loved the cutting edge lobby, the amazing friendliness of the front desk staff and the restaurant staff. You rarely if ever,get this type of service in 5 star hotels around the world. Yes the room was showing signs of age but it was exceptionally clean and functional. One of the more comfortable beds i have slept in a hotel.
My only suggestion would be the bed-linen and bath towels need replacing. I would be embarrassed to offer such obviously worn linen to my own guests in my home let alone a 5 star hotel. Overall a magnificent experience and we will be back. The Langham which has for years been our preferred hotel in Auckland has now been surpassed by the Pullman!

Recently travelled around NZ and stayed in c. 20 hotels / motels, which I think provided me with a good idea and cross section of accommodation available in the country. In Auckland we stayed in 3 different hotels including the Pullman, and when we returned, out of the three I chose to go back to Pullman. This was an easy choice and overall, Pullman makes it easy to explore Auckland.

The Pullman is a large, well-run hotel, but service quality is not sacrificed. All staff from the front desk to housekeeping were very friendly. We arrived a bit before check-in time, but were swiftly checked in and given our room. Luggage also arrived quickly. Common areas of the hotel are well maintained. The lobby, lobby bar and restaurant are very chic - reminded me of hotels in New York.

The room was spacious and functional, with a bit of a seaview to boot. The bed was large and comfortable with high quality linen and good choice of different types of pillows. Good darkening blinds as well guaranteed an excellent night's sleep, which for me is a key point in any hotel. To respond to some of the previous reviews about rooms being dated, I didn't really think this was the case. It's a question of style and whilst there is a grey carpet in the room, it's light and clean. Furniture is wooden and not modern slick black, but nothing in our room was scuffed or dusty. Bathroom again not necessarily the most modern, but furnished with high quality materials, nice towels and robes and impeccably clean.

The hotel seems to be quite environmentally conscious as well - plus points for the recycling bin in the room and use of local products.

Moving onto the other facilities in the hotel - very nice indoor pool, sauna and steam room. Small outdoor terrace area next to the pool. Well-equipped gym as well. Spa area is simple and stylish, very relaxing. Wasn't the best massage of my life but decent value for a capital city hotel spa.

We got a very good deal online in my view for both our stays, with breakfast included. Breakfast was a vast spread of cooked items, fresh fruit, youghurts, mueslis and bread. Also a great selection of juices. Highly recommend.

Overall, would not hesitate to stay again at the Pullman. I think some of the reviews about 'funny toilet sound' etc are a bit unfair.

Room Tip: HIgher floors might have a better view

Dear EmiliaS,

What a great review – we are truly humbled for all your positive comments on our hotel and also because we were your preference of hotel for your return visit to Auckland.

I have sent your review around the team and everyone is truly appreciative of your kind words and constructive feedback you have provided for other tripadvisor users.

It is unfortunate that the massage you experienced was not up to your standards as this is the one area of the hotel that we get consistent high praise for, especially from our international travelers. I hope that during your next stay you will provide us with another chance so our 5 star therapists can show you their skills.

Although a long way away from London, I hope that you will stay with us again sometime in the future.

All the best for the New Year!

Kind regards,

Rob McIntyre

Stayed again over the New Year period, almost empty....had the pool almost to ourselves for the three days we stayed....total bliss. Can fully recommend. Plus the front desk were very accommodating and helpful in sorting out what could have been a very tricky problem. The porters and concierge...great! Helpful hints about parking for free (during public holidays) And the cleaning staff....very efficient too. Will stay again.
