Just coming off of the end of a three week visit to New Zealand in which my wife and I have enjoyed the pleasure of staying at many of New Zealand's hotels both on the north and south island. Up until yesterday we could honestly say that all were great, but than we arrived at the Grande near Aucklands airport...

Close to airport. Currently having foyer area renovated. Was booked in for 10 days. But was not able to access my room day 2 because staff hadnt registered my key correctly. Cold shower day 2. Water in shower keeps changing temp and water pressure is very low. Toilet seat is very cheap plastic so creaks and groans very loudly. Bed...

Myself and my Dad were booked into this hotel earlier this month due to our cancelled flight. We arrived at the hotel around 2am with about 40 other passengers from the same cancelled flight. We were greeted by very sympathetic staff who said they would do all they could do for us. The airline had really messed us about and...

Our flight from Sydney to San Francisco was diverted on New Year's Day due to an unruly passenger. We ended up in Auckland and the airline scrambled to get us a hotel for the night. We should have stayed at the airport, which, by the way, is pretty nice. There were maybe two guys working and had no clue how...

This place is a dive and a rip off. They charge $6.00 for a warm can of lemonade but you only get half which they put in a glass. The food is of a very poor standard but they charge exorbitant prices. You can't get steak there. I ordered fish an chips an spent the following 2 days on the...

The rooms were clean but internet did not work, check in and out were slow. More expensive options near airport are better value for money. Is being renovated so may give a second chance if room rates don't increase after renovations are completed.
