Today we went for a day trip to Waiheke Island. It only took about 45 minutes by ferry to get there and then we spent about 4 hours walking around the Island. From the ferry port we walked to Oneroa, the main town on the Island with lots of little shops and restaurants, and then set off on a long circular walk, seeing beaches on both sides of the …
So we finally arrived in New Zealand! Although the flight was very long at 13 hours, it was amazing to fly overnight for the first time. Once we were up at a high altitude the view out of our window was just of pure darkness and stars...we'd never seen so many stars in the sky before!
The first thing that we were struck by when we arrived at …
29th April and the 3rd May 2013 Before I talk about New Zealand I want to share a thought with you, now maybe it's just me but when I'm on a plane I seem to fill with gas and expand which inevitably leads to a lot of *******. I'm assuming this has something to do with the pressure in the cabin and I'm also assuming that everyone is affected in this …
Landed safely in Auckland after a lovely flight (on time as always Qantas) on QF123.
First call after the bag snatchers finally located our luggage and out through Customs (where the lovely lady knew all about the Saints playing in Wellington!!) was to get the Saints Member sticker on the Hertz Renta-Racer (thanks Saints for this) and get …
We arrived in Auckland and enjoyed 2 nights exploring the city. It was fun checking out all the boats and watching the NZ America's cup cat sail out the harbour at super speed! We were pretty excited about picking up our Juicy van which we had for a whole 20 nights! We spent our first night at a free campsite in Lake Taupo. It was nice at first but …

Historical Traveler Reviews Auckland City Oaks
Brandneu, etwas klein
Wir wohnten Ende Januar in einem Appartement mit zwei Schlafzimmern. Insgesamt vier Personen und ein Baby. Das Appartement war ziemlich klein für diese Gruppe. Es sollte OK sein für eine Gruppe von bis zu 3 Personen.
Es verfügt über einen großen Kühlschrank, Kochvorrichtungen und eine Waschmaschine mit Trockner, alles war tipptopp, sehr neu. Pluspunkte: Internetanschluss im Zimmer. Minuspunkte: Die Rezeption bietet keinen 24-Stundenservice.
Ich würde auf jeden Fall wieder hier übernachten und empfehle es wärmstens weiter.
Totalmente nuevo y algo pequeño
Me alojé allí dos noches a finales de enero, en un apartamento de dos dormitorios. En total éramos cuatro personas y un bebé.
El apartamento era bastante pequeño para el grupo. Debería estar bien para un máximo de tres personas.
Tiene una nevera grande, cocina y una lavadora/secadora de carga frontal, todo como los chorros del oro y muy nuevo.
Hay conexión a Internet en la habitación.
El personal de recepción no trabaja las veinticuatro horas.
Sin duda me volvería a alojar allí y lo recomiendo totalmente.
My wife and I stayed at this location in late October for 3 nights. It was at the end of our 2 week North Island trip.
Great Value and Very Modern
Very clean, very modern contempory design and well equiped. 2 minutes walk to the Skytower. Washer Dryer in Appt with all the kitchen eqipment you would expect.
Excellent value for money would definatly reccomend
We stayed here for our first two nights in New Zealand on a Go Kiwi Silver pass and found it to be by far the best "Silver" accomodation that we experienced.
Our apartment had one bedroom, a kitchen area (including a washer-dryer), a small but adequate living area and a bathroom (shower only).
The furniture and decor was all very modern and very clean. There was no noise inside the building during our stay; the only noise came from Hobson street during the morning rush hour. This could be avoided by staying in a room on the other side of the building.
The location is very good, a five minute walk to Sky Tower and about 15 minutes to the harbour. Car parking is available in an undergroud car park at NZ$20 per night.
Great value, great place
I recently stay at this "serviced apartment" complex in Auckland. We had a two bedroom apartment, kitchen, living area, and bathroom for NZ $109.00 per night. It was immaculant. We were a 10 minute walk from the centre of the city. The police station was around the corner, and we felt very safe at all times of the day or night. You can use the facilities in your room for fixing a complete meal or snacks. A good fridge, stove, microwave and dishwasher are included, and in the bathroom, a washer/dryer combination. The beds are comfortable, and could easlily sleep four persons in the apartment, so the cost is really inexpensive. I highly suggest this as an alternate to the hotel scene. You won't be disappointed.
We chose to stay here because we have stayed in other Oaks properties and found them to be excellent - we were not disappointed.
Close to Skytower
Stayed in a two bedroom apartment in August for two nights. A couple of blocks from Skytower and Sky City Casino and two blocks to Town Centre. Easily walked and safe at night. Staff were friendly. I would recommend this Hotel. Great value for the price. The apartments are on the small side, but have everything you need.
A new hotel in Auckland
Brand new (we were the first to stay in our one-bedroom suite) and very well equipped. The one bedroom apartment we had was extremely small, however - the "separate" bedroom was really an annexe of the living area, with no door. Only one bedside table. No balcony in our apartment.
Staff were obliging but seemed quite inexperienced.
The Oaks on Hobson provide relatively well priced apartment accomodation. We stayed for a long weekend in February 2006 after searching for a well priced high-mid/top end hotel in the CBD. With most hotels (Stamford, Crowne Plaza, Carlton etc) being a little older, and around $200+ a night, we decided to try the Oaks as it was brand new, and around $120 a night for a 1 Bed Apartment.
