Great stay

I wanted to see Auckland and this was walking distance to the ferries and Viaduct district. The people are friendly, the rooms are modern and have a fridge. The only complaint was that there was only one machine in the gym and it could have more options if you are a fitness buff.

Expensive Auckland Hotel

This was a hotel of contrasts. Good location and friendly staff, but poorly managed and some draw backs. The restaurant was good but very expensive. The sound proofing of the rooms was poor. The internet was only free for 30 minutes/day. There was only one sitting chair in the room.

is it a 5 star customer service?

I came last week end for the rugby game. I asked on saturday afternoon where eden park stadium was (I had a rugby jersey on me, no mistakes possible), the concierge indicates me the mount eden. So I walk more than 90 minutes before realized it was not at all the right place. I finsihed by grab a taxi to get to the stadium: result: I miss the atmosphere around the stadium before the game and arrive just in time for the beginning of the game. When I explained it to the front office on the day after at my check out, the duty manager quickly apologized but asked if everything was ok apart of it. I was suprised by this answer. Maybe I wasn't a classic 5 star customer to deserve more time or another reaction...

Not up to expectation

To start with check in. We arrived at 2pm and they would not give us a room until 3pm even though it may have been ready. They have a strict policy of 3pm check in. We could not even get the key at 10 minutes to 3pm. They would not even send our bags to the room until after we got to the room. The spa was a nice area but was very dirty with dirty towels laying all over. Food service...waited a long time to get menu. Our meals came at different times so I was finished by the time my husband got his meal. My oatmeal was cold and congealed . The fruit bowl had old fruit that was like left overs several days old. My husbands brioche french toast was not brioche but plain white bread. Very bad meal and experience and expense...over $40. Concierge acted like I was bothering him when I asked for a map of the area. Beds were comfortable but room furniture tired and not as in pictures. For the price and class of hotel, I expected a lot more. Will not stay again.

Excellent Staff and Great Staff

The only slightly negative thing I could say about this hotel is that the location isn't great - there are plenty of hotels much nearer to the waterfront. However they have a free shuttle bus which drops you off right ion the centre, so as long as you don't mind the taxi home, then it's fine. The rooms and staff are perfect. The service was great. The outdoor pool is lovely and warm. Everything you need for a short break in Auckland. Nice touches like a little box of provisions in the bathroom e.g. toothbrushes, toothpaste, sewing kit etc. - just in case you didn't bring yours. And the concierge and porters are great. It's a bit pricey but well worth it I would say.

A bit dowdy

We normally love stately old hotels, but the Langham in Auckland is outdated. The staff seemed overwhelmed at checkin, and it took two tries for us to get into our room, well after 4 pm. The room itself was fine, but the view was yucky and the furnishings weren't anything special. The bathroom was a mix of old and new -- when's the last time you saw rubber drain covers in the sink and tub? Internet is provided only after you join their "club" and we kept getting kicked off if we didn't use it for awhile. Overall, a C+.

Amazing! Highly Recommended.

We couldn't have asked for a better end to our 3 week honeymoon than to stay at the Langham Hotel in Auckland. The service was spectacular, the hotel was luxurious, the food was excellent, and we enjoyed a nice spa and massage as well. Would definitely recommend if you are planning a trip to Auckland. The one possible drawback is that it is about 1 mile from the harbor, but that could be a good thing if you don't want to be in the middle of all those tourists. Also, The hotel has a free shuttle that will take you down there and pick you up every 30 minutes, from 800AM - 930PM.

Awesome Down under

Stayed with Langham as a reward for a long vacation travelling for 14 days, Don't know that you can find a better hotel. Staff is wonderful and ensures your every reqeust is honored. Very knowledgable of travel modes, best value, and a shuttle that runs to CBD all day long so you can experience all of the CBD. Rooms are very nice, room service excellent, and the Spa, steam room, sauna, heated outdoor pool and hot tub at night has spectacular views. Definite stay on our next trip.

Very nice room and great bed!

The Langham is a wonderful hotel with extremely attentive staff, a nice location, and a very comfortable room. Best bed we stayed in during our vacation in what was our fourth and final hotel with turndown service and lots of nice amenities. Only complaint is that like most hotels in New Zealand, the internet is not free in your room. There are free computers down the hall, but you have to pay to use the internet in the room which frankly doesn't make much sense. Otherwise, a great value for your money and probably the best hotel service I've ever seen.

Take a cab to the Auckland zoo to see the kiwis in the nocturnal kiwi house. Its the only one in Auckland and the best way to see the little creatures. Only $21 each way to get there by taxi and $22 for each adult for admission to one of the nicest zoos we've ever been to.
