I stayed at this hotel due to a flight delay - so was placed there courtesy of LAN airlines.
I am used to such airline placements involving long delays at reception, por food, etc etc, so usually would have paid to stay elsewhere and avoid the procedure, but this time I did not.
The staff at reception were extremely polite and cheerful and handled the couple of bus loads of pax very efficiently. The buffet dinner was quite good. The room was basic but comfortable.
As I had an overnight stay I decided to get a cab into the city - and as other reviewers have stated, that is a very expensive exercise.
The next morning the staff maintained us all informed of the progress of our flight and eventually got us all back onto buses and back to the airport. Such disruptions to travel are always bad, often involve many grumpy passengers, etc, but the staff here did a truly good job.
The hotel is definitely just an overnighter - I cannot imagine why you would want to stay for any reason other than close (<10 minute) proximity to airport. But for that purpose it is quite good.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The recently refurbished Holiday Inn Auckland Airport is located only 4km from Auckland Airport , set amongst 10 acres of tranquil gardens on it's very own oasis. Out of the way of flight paths and motorway noise, it is the perfect place to get some well needed rest, in-between flights, pre or post flight, or even if you are visiting the local attractions like Villa Maria, and Rainbow's End. The yellow shuttle bus makes getting to the airport easy, stopping by every 30 minutes. Families and couples love our outdoor swimming pool, giant chess game and garden settings. Our soft and hard pillow choice and free Wi-Fi are also some of the many comforts guests love. Holiday Inn Auckland Airport is a great choice for families as Kids Stay & Eat Free for 12 years and younger. We also have old fashioned games scattered around the hotel to keep the little ones entertained. ... more less
