We booked our accommodation over the internet and always received top quality replies and were well looked after.
When we arrived the staff we all friendly and welcoming, especially after they found out that we had travelled all the way from England!!!
The breakfasts were fantastic and plentiful and filled us up for most of the day! Therefore saving a bit of money!
The view from our room was great.
To top it all off the hotel had an open air swimming pool on the top floor and all the facilities, including the gym and changing area were spot on.
We would definitley go back somwtime in the future.
Terrible service at the Stamfordfrom alittleharsh
Arriving late in the evening, we presented our confirmation printout to reception, only to be told that the hotel had no record of our booking, and could we wait a moment. 10 minutes later, we were told to take a seat, and the hotel staff would prepare a double room. 20 minutes later when I approached the desk to see what was going on, I heard the cleaner say to the receptionist that I would have to wait another 30 minutes, because the cleaners were on their break! 5-star service???
After almost an hour, we were given our keys, but not an apology. We were treated like we were pests, and felt very unwelcome.
The room itself was standard, although room service was not available and the air conditioning control didn't work. Not a great start to a luxury honeymoon.
I wrote a complaint and then a follow up email to the Stamford, and have not received any reply whatsoever. I would never recommend anyone stay here.
Poor unwelcoming service at the Stamfordfrom neilroskilly
Pick another hotelfrom Kmalia
The lobby of the Stamford was fairly impressive, but beyond that the hotel was a dissapointment. Our room was on the eighth floor with a view facing a back alley. The general feel of the room was spacious, but sparse. The bed was uncomfortable and the sheets and bedding felt shabby. the king was two beds pushed together. The television was small and was placed in a position where you could not watch comfortably from bed.
My husband ordered a movie and the movie shut down for no reason halfway through. Although they did refund us the cost of the film, they did not return our call as to whether or not they would be able to reset the movie for 30 minutes.
The hairdryer did not work (smelled like burning hair when turned on) and there was no stationery in the room.
Overall, I would say the Hyatt is better value for your money.
Quite Acceptablefrom Lorac
Hotel breakfast prices were ridiculous, so we walked perhaps two blocks and found a number of restaurants serving food at considerably lower costs. The desk personnel were spotty - some were very accomodating while others couldn't be bothered.
The rooftop pool and changing rooms were terrific, giving us a place to change into our travel clothes before leaving mid-afternoon.
Fabulous luxury and glamorous roof top poolfrom HolAngel
The very best thing about this hotel is the FABULOUS roof top swimming pool. If you are there in summer, it is key to have somewhere nice to sit and swim.
Food and service also very good. Great big nice breakfast.
For around the same price as the Hyatt, this is much much better in every way.
An acceptable but faded Stamford... not their bestfrom OnThePoint
I'd discount the reports on this site which rubbish the hotel. It really isn't that bad. But it also doesn't come up to the standards we'd expect of a 5 star hotel either. The lobby is reasonable, but the main restaurant is quite plain with a just-okay breakfast buffet and a relatively poor dinner offering. Thankfully a large number of excellent restaurants are clustered around the docks only a couple of minutes walk away.
The rooms are disappointingly small and somewhat faded. Again, better than most 4* hotels but not all. It isn't a motel as someone has posted on this site.
The location isn't bad, quite close to the docks, but the street it fronts is quite run-down. The pool and gym at the top is hopeless. It needs a major revamp and if you're going to have an outside pool then it should be run at a reasonable temperature. Our kids swim in almost every pool they see, but refused this one.
My take on it was that it was decent accommodation if you book through the discount web sites at rates like NZ$200 per night, but you really would feel somewhat robbed if you paid much more.
Top Local Tips for Auckland
easy way to get to town from airport I highly recommend Supershuttle to get from the Auckland airport to a central hotel. It was quick and reasonable. I booked it in advance and it was waiting just outside. It is a reasonable alternative to a cab.
Things to do In Auckland The bridge climb is a must i am afraid of heights and i absolutely loved it. There is a great view looking over the harbour and skytower etc, but it is a great sense of achievement when you reach the top. The tour guide gave us lots of infomation on the building and workings of the bridge.
Link buses Use the green Link buses to get around Auckland. They're great for shopping and eating at great places.
