Upon arrival it took around ten minutes for us to even be greeted, and once we were the service was extremely unwelcoming and un professional. The beds in the room only had a sheet and a thin blanket, which made having a warm sleep impossible. When we went to have a shower dirty brown water came pouring out, when we...

Somehow we managed to not read any reviews until after we had booked (!!!) and were horrified by what we saw. With much trepidation we arrived at the Grafton Oaks Hotel and found that it really wasn't all that bad considering the price. Don't expect more than what you pay for - you won't get it! The 24 hour reception...

This hotel will not appeal to every one, but if your looking for a good deal and great location then this is your hotel. When we arrived we were not that impressed with the outside but for the price we paid we could not complain. when we realised how near to everything it was we were it was great. they...

Stayed here overnight because it was close to Auckland hospital for a seminar I had to attend. Service isn't exactly qualmark quality (though they don't advertise this) and the front desk staff weren't friendly either. Fit for purpose in terms of convenience to hospital, otherwise, would have booked elsewhere.

We stayed in Grafton Oaks Hotel whilst I had a placement at the Auckland Hospital. Location-wise it was amazing, easy to get to the hospital and a couple of good food places nearby. However, the hotel itself was very unpleasant. Dirty and noisy, mainly because of the staff. The lift was unusually decorated, I've never seen carpet on walls and...

I stayed in this hotel while my husband was having heart surgery in Auckland City Hospital, it was very convenient, you could pay for parking at hotel and walk to hospital. I didn't really enjoy staying at Grafton Oak. However it is cheap to stay in this hotel especially in winter. The rooms are basic, and were not cleaned everyday...

Booked this hotel online. Website made it out to be amazing before i discovered trip advisor. What a pighole. Minute you walk in the door it smells like curry. Absolute rude customer service from some young guy at desk could barely speak english. We were in our room for 2 minutes before we went back to front desk and asked...

I am not sure why I chose this. The toilet bowl was stained, the room walls were too thin. At night there were so many guests running around (I am not sure why) and making too much noise. The lack of A/C implies opening window which in turn implies letting mosquitoes in. The fridge was too tiny. the bed sheets...

I was worried with all the negative reviews...but this place was fine for our 2 nights in Auckland...the exterior definitely could use renovation as it looks like it hasn't been touched since the 70's...the interior looks like an old college dormitory...as do the rooms...but the rooms were clean and spacious with a fridge...internet wasn't super fast but it was free...

This is a terrible place to stay. Our room was dirty and we had to ask for more cups as there wasn't enough for three of us. There isn't any air conditioning so the room was very hot and if you opened the window the traffic noise was very loud. It is situated next to Auckland Starship Hospital and when...

“I recommend rooms on the third floor and facing the hospital - the view of the sunrises are amazing The floor itself is also quite quiet and because of the large amount of rooms - you get to sleep in that extra little bit before room service wakes you up to clean your room!!!”
