Hello, we arrive in Auckland 1st night of our honeymoon on Sunday end of Oct around 5pm. Should we stay around Auckland airport for the night so we can wake up early & hire a car from the airport to drive to Coromandel? Or are we wasting a night by staying near the airport and should go into the city for the night. My thoughts are by the time we get into the city, it will be getting quite late with public transport etc. Cant drive til the morning because we will be boozey from the flight. Other hand, is there not many nice restaurants etc near the airport. We will be coming back to Auckland city later in the week for 2 nights. Thoughts?
