The hotel is split into two - across the road from one another. We had a team stay here: we had a new room which was a lot nicer that students rooms. Good location / lovely coffee approx 200m down road. We found out last day pool inside so dont miss that. Staff lovely. Tad tired in some rooms.

The Surrey Hotel is on the city fringe, within walking distance of a supermarket and shops and within 5-10 minutes' drive of many Auckland attractions, including cafes and entertainment venues. Management and staff are warm and friendly and very helpful. There are a number of accommodation options; the rooms are pleasant, clean and comfortable. The exterior of the Surrey is...

We were here for one night. We wanted something walking distance to Western Springs and this suited us. Although we weren't able to check in early as our room wasn't ready, we were able to leave our car parked in the carpark which was convenient. Parking is free. We had a lovely one bedroom unit, in a separate block from...

I think some reviewers of this hotel are unduly harsh. Ok, so The Surrey isn't an up-to-the-moment minimalist modern hotel but then it doesn't pretend to be. I chose this hotel not only because of it's location, but because I LIKE older hotels with some character, rather than pokey small rooms which many newer hotels offer. I requested a quiet...

this is an old hotel, that could do with some updating. The manager (Preveet??) was really nice & helpful. Have to park the car a distance from the upstairs room, but pretty good place to stay. Would get a downstairs room next time

My son and I stayed at The Surrey on the advice of a friend initally the motel we were given has no kitchen and were able swap to another unit. One minor criticism was the book about The Surrey lacked information about what's available nearby and the hotel's menu wasn't included.

The place is massive and spreads out over several buildings. The checkin was easy and the guy at the desk went out of his way to help me with directions. They have an in-house eatery, pool and gym (none of which I used) for those who like to have a close-at-hand option. Pretty centrally placed the only negative was just...

We stayed our last night in this hotel but would not come here again. Positives: The staff were helpful, the room was spacious, the shower was good, indoor pool, walking distance from Ponsonby Road and other shops/restaurants. Negatives: If you like a good nights sleep this is not the place for you. The curtains did not block any light and...

Booked what was called a Luxury Suite they have no idea what that means, except for two king size beds nothing else was luxury. Only two pillows, two towels carpet not clean.
