I don't know why I have not reviewed the Domain Lodge before, because its simply the most comfortable, best value stay I've come across. This time my wife and I stayed for an overnight in Auckland, but we have stayed here several times in single rooms and double apartments, twice with my mother from Jersey, who loved it, and once with my sister from Jersey who also enjoyed the stay (and she has travelled!). Its quiet, close to the cbd, next to the large park and museum, and has a bus stop for the inner link bus service just around the corner. Its comfortable, more like a cross between a hotel and motel,with very well provisioned cooking and dining facilities either in suites or communally. Shopping is available at nearby Newmarket on the bus route, where there is a supermarket. There is secure, covered parking with a lift leading directly into the lodge. Gardens are pleasant. On top of that, it is run by the Cancer Society, so as well as having a great place to stay, you are providing support to a great cause. Everyone is a winner, so stay here.
