Room for improvement

My room was located on the 8th floor, the lifts only go as far as the 7th floor so you had to walk up a short flight of stairs (prior notice would have been helpful especially for elderly guests or guests with a lot of luggage). Had to request a change of room the following morning as the room backed on to a night club and was unable to get any sleep! The staff were accommodating in regards to a change of room. The rooms itself were adequate although some modernisation would be suggested (stains on carpet noticeable and a general tired outdated feel). Excellent location however and helpful staff.

Acceptable.

I stayed here prior to the most recent change of ownership and name, so I'll stick to the basics. The location is excellent, right on Auckland's main street and close to the public transport hub of Britomart. The restaurant provided a very solid cooked breakfast at a reasonable price. The room was clean, the bathroom spacious and well-designed, but the mini-fridge wasn't plugged and the other room facilities were limited. The street noise from outside was considerable, but I was only on the second floor.

Great location

The best asset for this hotel is its location - downtown and close to all public transport and the harbour. I had organised a late arrival and had no difficulties checking in at midnight. The room however was average, with lumpy beds and decor that was in need of an update. It was however clean and safe. At night, a local nightclub was very loud and the noise very intrusive, leading to a poor night sleep. The Grand Windsor advertised a meal discount in a local restaurant located very close by and this was not honoured. In defense of the restaurant, it had excellent food and its associated coffee shop served the best coffee we had in NZ. For a stay in Auckland, I would suggest you could find a more comfortable hotel than the Grand Windsor. However, do visit the restaurant/bar and coffee shop Everybody's. It is tucked away in a laneway near the entrance to the hotel.

Refurbished rooms

Since the Hotel had been taken over by Stay Well group, this is our first stay although we have stayed there as our favourite Hotel many times during the last 6 years when it was under Accor Group. Most rooms have been refurbished and our room had a new look with new paint and new shower cubicle and mini fridge. But the King size bed being two single beds put together was not that great as it sank in the middle. But the mattresses and the linen and towels appeared to be new and comfortable. The Lift shakes quite a bit and it was a bit scary. Great location on Queens St, near to Britomart and a number of Cafes, Banks and Money Changers and Westfield Shopping Mall and the Sky Tower and Cinemas are only less than a km away. Well connected to Airports with Airbus service. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms above 5th Floor are nice and quiet. Great stay for families.

Holiday and visit relative trip

The hotel is well located for our needs in visiting my relatives and for my holidays. It could hv been better if they provide free wifi in the room. This is now a standard everywhere. On the overall the hotel is well situated for exploring, tours, shopping n food.
