    Unbeatable location, with some amazing trails in your doorstep (or a shuttle away). Homey, cozy feeling. Food is always great. Bar on site with good quality drinks, and an amazing terrace open to the spectacular landscape!

    You can take the train from downtown Auckland and not have to worry about driving. The hotel will arrange a shuttle from the train station. Enjoy!
