VR Takapuna4.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We had a two bedroom apartment on the 3rd floor. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Wonderful view from the deck, clean and convenient to ferry. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. If we are ever in Auckland again, we would not hesitate to stay there and we will be recommending it to other members of our organization traveling to NZ.
Stayed here for 3 nights and loved it. It is a bit out of town, but the ferry to and from the hotel to central Auckland is included in the hotel price and much easier than driving in to the city. I would stay here again
Very helpful staff, greats apt size. No air cond and be careful with washer/dryer, g great location easy drive to Davenport And Takapuna.
Tips: -Prearrange your travel to the hotel if you are flying into the Auckland airport, the taxi got me for $150nz dollars! Call the hotel and they can arrange transportation. -This hotel does not have bath tubs although the shower unit was luxurious -You will have a washer/dryer combo that works great in the bathroom but the manual doesn't tell you to press the buttons in to see your washing selections pop out -Stunning view of the Auckland skyline, the ferry is within 10 mins walking distance and a bus stop is literally across the street from the front entrance of the hotel. -The staff was outstanding and incredibly helpful on anything from electrical outlets to helping you figure out the public transportation system. -The hotel information book in each room is usually terrible but take the time to read the one at this hotel, it armed me with so much information, really outstanding, every topic I could think of was covered. -If you will not be using public transportation, invest in a rental car with GPS, although the Oaks has a fantastic view of the city, it's about a 15min drive each way and hiring a taxi will break you quickly because taxis are unregulated so their rates can be outrageous. -Each room has everything you need in the kitchen to go to the grocery store and eat in but the hotel staff recommended the most high end grocery store and I had to ask what the cheaper stores were, don't be ashamed, everything there is at least twice the price of stuff in the USA. Overall, fantastic experience!
Spent three nights in a one bedroom. Room was Euro modern with all the needed amenities. Hotel has a lounge with happy hour. Across harbour from CBD with views of entire harbour that were wonderful. Took ferry to CBD (hotel provides tickets). If have a car the hotel is easy access to northern wine country and Devonport. Staff was super friendly and very helpful.
