“Lovely stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

What a lovely hotel. Great big room. Lovely staff. Beautiful pool and spa. Nothing was too hard for the staff at the Stamford. We arrived early, 9am, but were able to check in which was brilliant. When it was raining they lent us an umbrella. After we checked out they looked after our bags all day. The cocktails were delicious and the okonomiyaki (Japanese pancake) at the bar was as good as we'd had in Tokyo. Definitely stay here again. Thanks.

I booked a couple of nights at the Stamford Plaza on Albert Street Auckland for our wedding anniversary. Great room, kingsize bed which was oh so comfortable, great pool and spa and excellent breakfast. Close to the waterfront, where we took the ferry to Devonport and had fish and chips on the beach. Definately recommend and will be going back.

Room Tip: Look out for online deals where you can upsize your room

We stayed at the Stamford Plaza on a recent trip to NZ. We were in Auckland for 2 nights upon arriving. The Stamford Plaza's lobby has the old elegance you might expect from an American hotel such as The Waldorf Astoria. However, the rooms and halls were very dated in terms of design and decor. The bathrooms were oversized with plenty of room for an entire family to comfortably get ready in the morning. While the accomodations were just so-so, the service was fantastic. We didn't plan too much in advance of our travels. We hoped that we could book a car upon arriving. Little did we know the summer culture of every Kiwi during Christmas was to do the same. We were unable to get a car (which I thought was going to ruin our entire vacation). However, the concierge on duty during our debacle was extremely resourceful and helpful in re-evaluating our plans for the next two weeks. Now, I know you're thinking that this is the job of the concierge. But, Arie helped with so much more. He literally redesigned our entire vacation to ensure that we had the transportation and accommodation necessary to see the best parts of both the North and South islands. He spent a few hours acting more as a travel agent than a concierge. This kind of service is what should keep people coming back. How much time do you spend in the room anyway?

As for location, it's great. The CBD has plenty of great coffee shops, bars and restaurants. We took a lovely morning run along the harbor, which is just a couple of minutes from the hotel. There's also great shopping nearby, including a luxury shopping gallery right next door.

We stayed two nights in this hotel and were very happy with the service and the facilities. We used the pool and gym on both days and also enjoyed the breakfast buffet. We couldn't a fault with any of it. The location is also very convenient, as it's only a couple of blocks away from the Sky Tower and from the waterfront where there are plenty of bars and restaurants.

My husband and I are staying in the Stamford Plaza Auckland. This is our third night. It has comfortable, clean and large rooms. Great bathroom and comfortable bed. Good position, close to the wharf, CBD and transport.
Sadly for the hotel, there is a very noisy night club across the road in Albert Street that has been intrusively audible until 4am in the morning. So much so that we asked to be moved at 2.30am on our first night (Friday night).

Room Tip: Ask for a room that does NOT face Albert Street. The night club is very noisy until 4.00am.

We stayed in room 925 for 2 nights 3rd to 5th of Jan. King size bed has a dipp in the middle which meant we rolled into the middle. Buffett breakfast terrible, cold porridge, poorly organised, staff constantly dropping cutlery on the floor and not having rewashed. Bacon dry and very fatty. On the second day tea bags not replaced nor soap. The bathroom has a rusty towel rack and the tiles on the floor are all rusty from it. Room was not ready on time either. At best 4 Stars.

Room Tip: None don't stay here

Two things make this hotel stand out! Location and the outstanding young man who managed the valet parking, unfortunately I can't remember his name. The location is perfect, it is close to the Viaduct and all other amenities. The valet guys in General were immensely helpful, courteous and very efficient. The rooms were ok.... Decor is a little dated, however roomy and comfortable. We really enjoyed our two nights in Auckland!
