My family and I stayed here in July for a family function, and so glad we did. Parking is a little tight but hopefully after their work they had done while we were they had more (it's under the building). However, good lighting to elevators after parking. The rooms are clean

Whenever I chose to visit Auckland the Spencer on Byron is my go to place to book accomodation. The rooms are comfortable size and they're always well made up. The majority of the rooms have great views and if you're willing to fork out for the buffet breakfast you won't leave

It was fine but no more. The family room had enough space and the beds comfortable. The air con didn’t seem to work properly, it appeared to have 2 settings hot or cold but no functioning thermostat. There is quite extensive work going on, which while not particularly disruptive

How far are you from the airport?
We took the super shuttle to the hotel. I believe we paid $60 in NZ dollars. A lot cheaper than a taxi. Depending on the number of people in the shuttle it might take a little while to get there. Think it took about 30 mins from the time we left airport to hotel and we made 6 or 7 stops. Would use again. Did use for return trip and they were on time for pickup.

Hi how easy is it to get to north shore hospital from the hotel? Thanks
Hi cjmjs, It's quite easy. The hospital is about a 5 minute drive away. If you're wanting to use public transport. The hotel is about a 5 min walk from the Takapuna Bus Station and there are quite a few buses that leave from there and then go through the hospital grounds and stop right outside the hospital. The bus journey from Takapuna to the hospital would take 5-7 mins. Hope that helps The Spencer Team
