The Emerald Inn in Takapuna is a resort style hotel with a group of properties like cottages you can stay in. It is a very short walk down a small hill to a beautiful beach. There are many restaurants to chose from near by like Thai, Chinese and Japanese. Short walk to a mall wit

I have to say Im very well impressed with this oasis in the heart of Takapuna. The room was lovely with all the facilities you could possibly need for a short stay. The beds were comfortable and its a very short walk to the local eateries. The service from the staff was great. Ev

We stayed in the two bedroom cottage by the sea for three months when my husband had to be there for work. We loved it. We were made to feel very comfortable and were really well looked after by the team.

Great location with Takapuna beach just down the end of the road. Handy to all Cafes and shops...The first impressions was that you have arrived at a tropical resort . We booked direct on line and was attracted to the week-end special ... Normally approx NZD 300 + for a Spa room

Thank you for your review Lastanza. I regret that you were not completely satisfied with your choice of room. All of our spa units are on the first floor. I have not had any reported issues about the access to the spa baths previously but will investigate the problem mentioned. Maybe the spa unit is not the best choice if you do have mobility issues. We are always happy to advise prospective guests on the room type that may suit their needs if asked. We hope you have the chance to enjoy the special deals again sometime in the future.

I stayed on the 18th July for work. The front desk staff member was lovely. The room was warm and comfortable and the grounds were beautiful.
Very close to the main strip with lots of cafes/restaurants and shopping. Two minute walk and you are there. Just down road is the b

We are arriving in Auckland at circa 0730 on 29 January after a long flight from UK. At what time could we get access to our room if we do book?
Good Afternoon Tim, Our check-in time is from 12pm, however if you book from the night before, you will be able to go straight to your room on arrival. If this isn't an option for you, you are more than welcome to leave any luggage you will have with you in reception until the room is ready for you to check-in. Hope this helps answer any questions Tim. Kind Regards, Shontarna

I have to say that in all the times I have traveled back to New Zealand it has never taken me more than an hour to clear customs and leave the airport. The trip to Takapuna would depend on which day of the week you were travelling. If it was a working day then peak hour traffic could be a problem and the usual 1/2 hr trip could turn into 11/2 hrs. Great choice for accommodation but you may have difficulty in checking in that early if it is fully booked which it often is. Good Luck.

"Just make sure you know what you have requested!!!"
"Rooms upstairs, 2nd level, have a better view but you have to carry your own luggage up the stairs"
"Corner suites are very quiet."
"all the rooms i think are the same,a nice quite location"
"Possibly specify one off the road frontage but it really wasn't a great annoyance. Others around the pool area are just a little nicer."
