We stayed two nights at the Spencer on Byron at the beginning of our two week Red Carpet Tour. The hotel was quiet and our room was comfortable and clean. While the room was not spacious, it was fine for the two of us. We had a group dinner in the banquet room, and the buffet was quite good. After...

I wish I would have seen the reviews on TripAdvisor before making my reservation – especially those that a poor to terrible such as Rich's from six days ago, or Blair B of Nov.25 16 or agenj007 from April 2016. Despite the many "excellent" review they much better reflect what is going on. Yes, he views either harbor/city or beach...

Upgraded to a suite. Comfortable bed, fabulous panoramic views of Auckland and Rangitoto Island. Walking distance to Takapuna shops. Generous buffet breakfast, room service was good too. Furniture a bit tired could do with a freshen up.

Probably the best place on the North Shore! We have stayed here many times and we are always pleased with the standards of Te hotel and the helpfulness of the staff. We checked in for 3nights and were given a room catering for disabled persons. We requested to move and were given a wonderful room with a sea view. If...

From problems with the Booking process, false infomation, checkin delays, slow staff and lukewarm breakfast, I was dissapointed. I grew up nearby, and flew back to Takapuna for my wedding. we booked the Wedding special package and for $315 NZD we expected more. the condition and fittings in the room were old and worn, the meals were very unpleasant. Sorely...

Stayed over New Years. Great view overlooking the harbour so we were able to watch the fireworks. Great central location, everything we needed for our stay. Only issues we had were ordering a coffee with breakfast - it arrived so late we'd already finished and were packing up to leave. I wasn't charged for it though. Also, we had a...

I stayed at the Spencer on Byron for 5 days in early October. The stay was for a work conference and the venue was great. It is a very close walk to Hurstmere Road where there is ample restaurants, bars and shopping. There are also some great Yoga Studios in close proximity which was fantastic. The hotel room was very...

We recently stayed at the hotel whilst attending a conference at AUT. I chose the hotel based on location and facilities. Whilst the overall experience wasn't bad... it really wasn't impressive either. Whilst check in was efficient, I was surprised that the hotel charges $20 per day for WiFi (or purchase a package at $15 per day) Additionally, that I...
