After an early start from KeriKeri we drive the four hours to Auckland. We have to drop off the hire car first, then get a taxi to the hotel. The drive went well with no hick ups on the way. Dropped car off and got a taxi to the Stamford Hotel. The location of the hotel was perfect, however, the hotel itself is a little dated. We have a very early …

Au Revoir, Auckland

... I think thats my favourite thing about New Zealand: every road is a freaking scenic route. I worked it out and I must have covered at least 4,000 kms in the trip. 5 weeks, 5 cars and 5 great travel mates: Peter, Monica, Jade, John & Jean as well as all the others I met along the way: amazing company, lots of laughs, un petit peu d'amour, mountains and beaches, fire and ice - its been ...

3rd ODI, Eden Park

... before driving the fourth into the stands, with the openers proceeding in similar vein for 9 overs. After that the shackles were put on by Bennett and magic arm Anderson-a crowd favourite, he'd already been cheered to the crease when coming in at number four, watched a ball, driven the second into the stands and then got out for 8. After 15 overs, India were 75-3. Kohli's wicket was a relief-although he'd stopped by then, a flurry of boundaries ...

    Clean, comfortable and nice big bathroom. Perfect location for a cohort stay.

    We only stayed one night at the Stamford Plaza and it was okay for our very short visit. Would not rave about the hotel but the staff were very friendly and the room was more than adequate, if a little dated and the bathroom was nice and big. Certainly, would have no problem coming back to this hotel but compared to some of the more modern hotels, it is showing signs of age.

    Secured a good room on the weekend special.
    Very comfortable room. Had a relaxing bath to start the holiday and get in the right frame of mind.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Stamford Plaza Auckland

    Great view - terrible service


    We stayed here when it had just opened and had a beautiful clean room with great views of the harbour BUT we had so many problems with the service. We put it down to 'teething' problems but just read some of the recent reviews and seems that things have not improved!

    Fantastic hotel, excellent service! A true 5* gem!


    I booked the Stamford last minute and was slightly worried, as i had stayed in the Mercure Windsor on my previous visit and wasn't impressed. I went through and got a great deal (NZ$180) and that included breakfast each morning!

    I arrived at the hotel and the concierge was very helpful and friendly.

    I arrived in my room and although the view wasn't great, it was very large and had a spectacular bathroom. The room service was excellent and the bed comfy, i had no complaints at all, food great-service great-location great, will def stay there on my next visit.

    **Well appointed & luxurious**


    I found the Stamford Plaza auckland wonderful.

    First impression i got was from the grand entrance, lobby bar and concierge which were all impressive and staff were friendly and quick to help.

    The rooms were great with king singles that can can be pushed together and the bathrooms big and spacious with fluffy robes aswell!

    Location is great, 1 block from the main street near shops and the waterfront.. Prices in the hotel were expensive but you expect that when staying anywhere 5 star. And yes the staff gave us 2 for 1 drink vouchers upon arrival..

    I'd definately recommend this one!

    Not very impressed!


    I was booked into the Stamford Plaza as part of a group. The lobby is very grand and inviting. I found that the front desk staff were very nice and as helpful as possible for directions or recommendations.

    Great service


    We arrived at the Stamford around 11pm after a long journey and found the staff to be amazing. Our room was excellent and had a lovely deep bath with ample hot water. We met Jan (USA/Kiwi) at the Cigar Bar and had a hot chocolate - thanks to the hotel for the 50% discount coupon. The Stamford seems to listen to their customers - offering discount phone calls and half price mini bar. We stayed another night before our departure and have to say that this hotel is faultless - from the chaps in red coats who collect your luggage in the freezing night and deliver to your room right thru to the reception girls and bar staff. We would definately stay at the Stamford Plaza again.

    Liked the Stamford


    I thought that the Stamford was a very nice hotel. All the facilities were clean and worked.So you paid nearly NZ$6 (just over ?2) a night to use the safe but I have been charged more elsewhere and it is not compulsory. Separate bathroom and toilet were good. Bath robes were heavenly.Good selection of TV channels although it would have been nice to have BBC World. Excellent position near the waterfront. Had the lamb one evening in the restaurant which was to die for.I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel to anyone.

    5 Star Hotel?


    A few days ago I thought I'd surprise my boyfriend by taking him to stay at the Stamford Plaza for his birthday - what a mistake. The first problem occurred within about 10 minutes (that's about how long I had to stand in line at the reservations desk) of my arrival. The clerk was extremely unhelpful, didn't tell me anything about the hotel, or the package I had booked, let alone give me any directions to my room.

    Not as good as it looks


    Boy, was I disappointed in this hotel AND the Sir Stamford Double Bay in Sydney (see review there as well). I had such high hopes for these hotels and was looking forward to my five-star vacation down under. Not quite.

    Mislead, overcharged and disappointed


    I was so disappointed with the Stamford. We chose to go to a 5* hotel expecting great service. We were sadly disappointed. Many of the staff were rude and unhelpful. Service was poor. There were even holes in the bed sheets! And upon check out we were charged at full price, not the special that had been promised at the time of booking. The charges were disputed and removed from the bill. Then 5 days later we recieved a bill the overcharged items and told they had already been charged to my credit card. In the situation we should have been called and advised. I am now waiting for the letter writer to return my call to explain the situation. If you want 5* service dont go to the Stamford Plaza Auckalnd!

    A motel at 5 star prices


    this was the worst hotel i have ever stayed in remember a sleeping bag while you wait on your room. avoid the stamford at all costs.
