Stayed here just one night for business - very good sized apartment type room with full kitchen facilities, great views and plenty of space. Well appointed although starting to show its age. A few negatives - very upright and uncomfortable sofa/settee with no cushions, and the shower over bath is very narrow - would suggest when planning a refit that...

I was back again at The Spencer on Byron Hotel for a week during a business trip in May 2017. And, honestly everything's the same good way that I experienced three years back... the room, the food and of course the staff. Just at a few minutes walking distances from the Takapuna Beach, the location of the hotel is perfect,...

Last year, as a treat for my birthday my partner and I were shouted a night at the Spencer on Byron hotel. We had the Romance Package which included a one bedroom suite and that was well worth it. We were delivered a delicious platter of cheese, crackers, fruit and nuts and a bottle of champagne on ice. There were...

2 blocks from the Takapuna beach, with lots of local restaurants, this hotel is a great base to stay at. The service was great, especially when our first room had an issue and we were cheerfully moved to an upgraded room. Thank you. There are suites that have comfortable, but slightly dated furniture. Wifi was very good but extra cost,...

We came here for the World Masters Games and this hotel did not disappoint. Our initial room had a problem, but when we mentioned it we were quickly upgraded to a beautiful suite with an amazing view, complete with kitchen, washer and dryer and a balcony. Nice bath and shower. Staff are kind and helpful. Close to many nice restaurants...

Sadly we were not very impressed with this hotel. It is looking outdated. The bath/showers are cramped. The mattress springs kept me awake a lot of the night. My partner and I were both covered in bites come the morning. With the added cost of parking and Wi-Fi, I'll definitely be booking alternative hotels in the future. The view was...

We stayed one night. Cases delivered to our room, and collected the next morning. Very comfortable, though not large bedroom, decent bathroom. Fantastic views from the balcony looking west. Good range of food and drink on offer.

The rooms are perfectly nice. Pretty much what you'd expect from this kind of hotel for the price. Definitely clean. The thing that got me what that they charge you $20 just to park in the hotel. Then they give you 1 hour of internet before they try to charge you another $20 or something for more internet. What a...

We enjoyed location and walking to all our functions in Takapuna. Our room on the 17th floor had a fantastic morning sun and view of the ocean. We appreciated having a one bedroom apartment with laundry facilities.
