Girls weekend

Got upgraded on check in which was lovely as a couple of mums getting away without 5 he kids... up to queen beds and a room with a view. Perfect location to concert at vector arena. 2 min to waterfront. Only downside was on Saturday night it was very noisy from main street bars etc... still hear at 3 am but tired enough to sleep through . If you can cope with that then great spot. Little bit tired but location excellent

Good Location but not much chance of a harbour view

We stayed here for one night at the end of a six-week NZ holiday. Reception (doubling as Conciege) was friendly and helpful at all times. There is no parking here, but they were happy to let my daughter leave her car in the drop-off area for an hour, while we said our goodbyes to her. We had booked a superior room, believing that it would afford a harbour view - not so! It is simply a larger room on the corner of the building. We were given one on the 3rd floor with a fine view of the ugly building opposite! On querying this, they were able to give us a similar room on the 8th floor at a $20 surcharge - oh well at least it had a partial view of the harbour! To get a proper harbour view one needs to have a suite on the 12th floor. The room itself was large and had two standard double beds. It was well appointed, although like the corridors it was a bit worn and in need of some refurb. We had hoped to dine in the 360 Restaurant at the SkyTower, but learned it was fully booked 3 days ahead. After checking out some of the restaurants in the Viaduct and Winyard areas, we chose to eat in the hotel's 13th floor restaurant 'Vue'. And indeed it had a fine view over Watamata Harbour. They gave us an excellent window table and the cuisine was first class. Good result!

Excellent location

The hotel was centrally located so my son and I could go to two shows close by within walking distance. The hotel room was basic but perfect for our needs. When we got back from show there was a party next door and I rang reception and they responded immediately which was greatly appreciated

Position is super

Had 2 nights here at the start of our NZ north experience. The meals, dinner and breakfast, were exceptional from the top floor, perfect position to look over the harbour. The food was spot on, would even come here again just to visit the restaurant. From here you can easily access the ferry terminal to get to Rangitoto or Tiritiris Island etc, basically across the road as well as Britomat and trains. The shopping is also here from basics at Countdown or even clothing or galleries. It wasn't that far to walk up to the Art Gallery, Vector Arena a few steps away, but just outside are the green and red buses, so good a service! Easy ride to Parnell Road/Domain & Museum for $2. This is one of the better areas to stay I would imagine and never being to Auckland before felt happy to have been in this spot.

We took a bus from outside (only a few metres from) the door and goes around the city area. Just across the road at the corner you can get other trips, bargain!

Mercure Auckland

Nice hotel. Location is perfect. Staff were helpful and friendly. City noise not too intrusive. Rooms small but clean and warm. Parking easy, but a bus only street on the west side meant you had to plan your approach if driving. We'd stay again.

Displeasing All Around

I booked this room based on the location and it was perfect for where i needed to be, and so close to Brittomart Station. i also had several other rooms booked by friends for the same night. Negatives are below: Ordered food from the restaurant that took an hour to get, the waitress was chewing gum like a cow, and had little knowledge of the foods and drinks except that the servings were small (this she was right about) she let us order a Heineken and about 20 mins later came back to advise it isnt on the menu and when the food came out the plate was extremely hot while the food was room temperature. Later ordering drinks from room service the wait was around 20 - 25 mins to get a few drinks to the room, and then the next order didnt come so we had to go to the bar to get it ourselves. Check out took longer than check in with a long line of people waiting, and only 1 person working, and then there was a wait of 25 mins to get our car from valet which actually took about 45 minutes and came out with damage. This hotel really was great for location but i think i would have been better off further from where i needed to be, with much better service. we wont stay here again.

Break away

We stayed at the Mercure because we were catching the train to Wellington. It was very handy for us. The room was okay but no facilities to make a cuppa. We arrived there about 8.45pm, room was nice and clean. We left early, so not there for long.

Very friendly staff at the Mercure Auckland which couldn't have been in a more perfect location. Down on the harbour near many attractions and restaurants and next to the Britomart Transport Centre, Auckland's major transportation hub. The hotel itself was also great, very clean and quiet. Only improvement would be to increase water pressure in the shower and have a more free TV channels.
