Wow it was a quick one night stay in The Spencer on Byron. I was staying in New Zealand for the week on business but the room here was only available for the one night so I had to find another Hotel. After a delayed flight I arrived at nearly 3am in the morning. Hardly enough time to review what...

The room had an excellent view of the city. There was only one chair in the room but the staff brought an extra one as soon as we asked.It is very central in Takapuna, closet some good restaurants and very quiet.Only one hour free wifi, then quite expensive

I had a wonderful experience when I stayed here in January 2017 to attend a grandson's wedding. Several extended family members all stayed here from different parts of Australia and New Zealand. It meant we could catch up over breakfast or dinner or over the hotel phone. I had my own apartment with a kitchen, washing machine and dryer and...

We grabbed a last minute apartment at the Spencer which was a good move and a nice change from where we were before. Interesting feeling being in Takapuna as a home from home. Situated just off the main drag, it's a well appointed stay, with attentive staff and a general sense of calm. The rooms are snug but well set...

We booked this hotel about one month out from our stay, we were travelling as a team and needed four twin share rooms. At the time of booking we did not take much notice of the price as we really needed to secure Accomodation on the north shore. On arrival at the hotel the front office staff could not find...

Sheer luxury. My room was very spacious, with very high quality fixtures, with beautiful panoramic views of the harbour and beyond. Self catering facilities were excellent, as well as unexpected laundry facilities subtly hidden away behind a screen door. Amongst the very best hotel rooms I have experienced worldwide. The only slight quibble I had there was the sound 'thudding...

Situated on the north shore of Auckland, there's a bus stop nearby the hotel with convenient access to downtown area (approximately 20 minutes ride). The Takapuna Sunday Market is also within a 5-minute walk from the hotel. Plenty of eateries nearby to choose from. Also walking distance to the Takapuna beach; and Lake Pupuke, walk through the Killarny Park and...

Lovely staff and beautiful views. We got up to our room to find a bottle of wine, box of chocolates and a heart made of rose petals on the bed! Lovely staff, great views and great hotel. They get an A+++
