Great hotel”

Excellent rooms equipped with everything you could wish for, quiet but beautiful location

The hotel is beautifully located on Auckland's north shore, close to Takapuna and Devonport. Both is quiet far for walking, but the hotel has a shuttle service. Also, you get ferry tickets everday to go to downtown. The rooms are spacious, super clean, and have great kitchen and appliances (washing machine, dryer). The staff is very helpful. View from the lounge over the harbour to downtown is priceless!

Relaxed and pampered”

Great scenic views, super-quiet, tranquils.

Although it is quite far from city by land roads, alternatively you can easily go to the city by ferry services and the good thing it is free, compliments from the hotel itself. Otherwise you have to pay NZ$10++. *close to the ferry pier/terminal. 10 to 15 mins walk. Ferry departs every 30 mins weekdays, 1 hour gap on weekends. Just make sure you are punctual to the timetable! *public buses to city (Takapuna Centre) just in front of the hotel,same time schedule as ferry. *great view and around the hotel. Backyard is facing to the sea. You can easily spot the Auckland Sky Tower and city centre from your room. *very quiet and peaceful at night. You can easily feel sleepy. *full amenities inside your room including a stove, fridge, washing machines, dishwashers etc. Even you can cook on your own. Just beware of the smoke sensor and alarm. *very attentive and helpful staffs. *high speed internet Wifi. *basic Continental breakfast. Not much varieties. *free and spacious parking lots. *great hotel if u prefer tranquility and peaceful moments.

Fantastic hotel”

I have stayed in a lot of places and hotels over the years and I think this hands down the VR Takapuna beats them all. Serene setting and friendly helpful staff. The room was clean and modern, the bed super comfy and big. The Bathroom was clean and functional. Parking was fantastic. The Kitchen was perfect full size jug, a dishwasher and fridge fit for purpose. I loved our stay and will be back.

Convenient and work hard for your dollar”

Free wi Fi, parking, breakfast

We found the price of most of the 5 star hotels in downtown Auckland to be overpriced for quite aged premises... Plus high charges for all the extras. Takapuna includes breakfast, wi Fi and parking in to your rate and as a result, we found this hotel great value for money. It is located out of Auckland central but it was fine - a 10 minute drive in to the city all via no toll motorway, or they also offer a complimentary ferry in to town which was great fun. There are some nice sea side suburbs on this side of the harbour anyway so we thought it was great. Breakfast is continental only and very minimal but suffices, rooms are also minimalist but do the job. Not a luxury hotel but more than satisfactory

We had a lovely stay at Takapuna Oaks. Just wished we could have stayed longer We had a backs room exec studio on the ground floor The room was the best accommodation we had stayed in NZ There was a huge sitting room with well equipped kitchenette ( not that we used it!) Also a dining area. The bedroom was nice with a large bathroom and laundry area. Lovely views across to Auckland harbour The hotel included complimentary ferry tickets to downtown area If I had to make any negative points there was. no full length mirror in the room! Had a lovely stay and hope that one day I can return Thank you to the lovely staff on the front desk hey were very helpful too.

Free shuttle service for guests

We had a lovely time at Takapuna oaks and would be more than happy to stay there again. Reasonable priced and the hotel had absolute everything you need. Free shuttle service around the north shore and also provided the guests with free tickets for the ferry into the city. Only thing negative, if anything, would be the lack of seats in the restaurant for breakfast.

Beautiful Hotel, Unique Location”

gorgeous rooms, quiet

I enjoyed a wonderful stay with Auckland Takapuna Oaks. The ferry rides from the city proper were lovely, didn't feel too out of the way for me, though I didn't make late-night plans. I did have an early Saturday morning flight, though, and I'm glad I took notice that the ferry has a vastly different Saturday schedule. The room was spacious, well-kept, clean, and had a comfortable bed. I would definitely stay again.

It's quiet; very comfortable; and very good value.

We were only able to stay for 2 nights; however, from check in to check out was a wonderful experience. We walked to the ferry terminal and crossed to Auckland using the free tickets from the hotel. We dined at the sunset lounge and thoroughly enjoyed the experience - well done Brian. On check out the manager was there to ensure that our stay had been satisfactory - what service. We recommend this hotel to anyone who is planning to stay in the Auckland area.

Great hotel with good facilities and amazing view”

Great view, good facilities

We stayed at Takapuna for one night after our round the island trip and it was one of the best hotels we've stayed in. Rooms are equipped with all the stuff you need, you feel like you are staying in a serviced apartment. you can even cook - but be aware don't make too much smoke otherwise you'll trigger the fire alarm. The location is fare, not very close to the downtown but we are fine with that since we've stayed in the city center as well. Devonport is definitely a place you wanna check out while staying there. They even have free ferry tickets for hotel guests. But you will need your own transport to go there as there is a 4 km distance in between.

From this hotel we have a great view to Auckland City with the Sky City Tower and Auckland Harbour Bridge across the sea. The hotel staff very friendly and helpfull. But this hotel a little bit far from the city can't access by walk, must use a car but still ok with the great location and view.

Price for quality, free breakfast, free ferry ticket to city.

Out of 8 places we stayed in New Zealand, including 5 star hotels in Auckland and Wellington, this hotel was by far the best value. At NZ$125 per night for two people, free breakfast, free ferry tickets to the city. The bed was also the best in all the places we stayed. We could also open the windows to let in fresh air, there was no airconditioning, and it is not needed, but there was heating. The staff were great.
