Historical Traveler Reviews Amora Hotel Auckland
My partner and I stayed at this hotel for two nights in November and it was great. The rooms are the largest we've seen in New Zealand, very clean with excellent kitchen facilities. The hotel backs on to Meyers Park and is a 2 minute walk to Aotea Square. The pool and spa (hot tub) were very enjoyable and clean, although the proximity to the hotel bar was a bit close for comfort (unless one is used to/enjoys being oggled by businessmen). Regardless, I would highly recommend this hotel.
Had a great stay
We stayed at the Duxton last week and we were not disappointed. The rooms were comfortable, clean and cosy. The staff were helpful too in giving us directions to various places. Would certainly recommend to all.
My husband and I stayed here during our honeymoon. It was really a great find. We stayed in a King Spa room which had an amazing jacuzzi and a kitchenette and washer/dryer.
The washer/dryer are small and the dryer was really worthless. We had planned to wash our clothes from our trip, but the drying process was painful. Perhaps we were unlucky and got a bad unit.
The staff were really wonderful and very accomodating. The breakfast that was delivered was the best room service ever and it was a flat delivery fee.
The hotel is within walking distance to many restaurants and a great Friday market is just down the street. It's about a 10-15 minute walk to the wharf.
Had two nights here to get over the journey from UK in March 2005. The room was good with a washing machine and kitchen area which was useful. The air con was a seperate stand alone machine in the room which was a bit noisy but not a problem really.
This was an excellent little hotel very well placed to walk in to the heart of Auckland and we found it very friendly and helpful. The food in the restuarant was excellent as well.
Great Saturday Night Location
Stayed in a King Spa room this weekend (lasy weekend package, incl bubbly and breakfast with late checkout, and free parking in under hotel car park) and was very impressed with the hotel. The room was superbly laid out with a giant spa bath kitchenette and spacious bed and layout incl small balcony, was clean and well presented. The service was great and had breakfast in the room (for small extra charge on package).
It did get quite noisy round the front of the hotel with a wedding party (we were round the back and high up so were away from it. so if you are going to book either make sure you get a room at the back over the gardens or make sure they arn't having any parties there.
I stay in Auckland often and booked at the Duxton for the first time last week. Although the service was reasonably good the room was average and noise levels from adjoining rooms unacceptable.
I would rate it a 3.5 star. Won't stay here again.
Superb and Cheap
We visited in late July. The Duxton was just wonderful and the price (about $90 USD) was great. This is the kind of modern business hotel that we would ordinarily expect to pay $200 a night for in an average US city and as much as $300 to $400 in NY or Chicago. The staff was great and the location was just fine.
I recently stayed in a one bedroom suite at the Duxton and enjoyed the stay immensely. Location and facilities were good and the staff were most helpful. Small balcony, but good views over parkland. Nothing spectacular to report, but definitely no complaints. Enjoyable experience.
A very well appointed hotel
This hotel is one of the best kept secrets of North Island. The rooms are modern and attractive and more encouragingly the service was efficient and polite. We elected to move to the Duxton after a bad experience at the City Life in Auckland, who could learn a lot about customer-relations from the Duxton folk. Also the Duxton represents outstanding value for money.
Duxton Hotel Auckland
My husband and I have just had the pleasure of staying three nights at the Duxton Hotel Auckland for our wedding anniversary. Having stayed in a few Hotels in Auckland previously and this being our annual getaway from children and the farm, we tend to be a little critical, the Duxton could not be faulted. The rooms were very well appointed, clean and with the view over Myers Park, very relaxing and luxurious. A big thank you to all the staff, you were great. This hotel being only a couple of minutes from Aotea Square and a fairly easy walk or a cheap cab ride to the Viaduct Basin is highly recommended by us, well done Duxton you top alot of the so called best hotels and at a very reasonable price.

Yes, you read right! We got our phone to work, basically only because Chelsea and I went shopping so I took it to the phone shop! We were spoiled today with our breakfast being included so that was a good start and prepared us well for our trip to the zoo. Today is freezing and blustery so not a great day for the zoo but none the less, we went, we …
After another stint in the car and a ridiculous windey road, we arrived in Wellington, found our hotel which was amazing and quickly unloaded so we could explore (also an excuse to stretch the legs!). We wandered down to the esplanade where there was unfortunately for Ray, a designers market so..... We made a deal, we had lunch at Macs brewery and …
Today I took delivery of a little Harley sportster & found my way over to the Coromandel, a lovely set of roads. A region with a gold mining past.
The company provided a jacket, gloves & helmet. I had a map from the travel agent, but really once you are out of Auckland, it is easy navigating. I was out until 6 pm enjoying the sunny …
Back to Cairns for the NZ flight. I will miss the Port, this is a fun place.
It was an all day bus trip to & from the 2 sights - Waitoma Caves (glow worms) & Hobbiton. I will be checking with the agent about the return to Auckland, when a number of passengers were switching buses at the end of the tours to hotels in Rotorua. But never mind, in spite of rain at the end of the Hobbiton tour, it was a fun day.
