  1. How lavish some of these hotels are! They are more beautiful and luxurious than my apartment! Of course, they cost about as much per day as my apartment does per month. However, the scenic countryside of New Zealand makes it worth the expense. We all need to get away from time to time and you’ve shown the most beautiful way to do so. One of these days you may find me sitting in one of these hotel rooms gazing out the window. Thank you for sharing.

  2. What a great post, as I was going through this post I could feel as if I am already in New Zealand, I believe that place must be awesome according to the description. It’s very recommendable to know or to be sure of the place you will settle while arrive in New Zealand, thank you for sharing such a wonderful article, I am sure it will be of great help to many as they research on hotels in New Zealand.

    Thank you.

  3. Hi

    It is nice to hear a review of New Zealand such a beautiful country, which I would like to visit one day. I have seen pictures of New Zealand from watching rugby union and the cricket, which makes you want to visit the country. When you visit a country you have no idea about what hotel to stay in or if  the room you are staying in is at the best price. This is hard work and you make each hotel sound wonderful, each  having their advantages and disadvantages. When staying in a hotel you are looking for all the creature comforts without paying too much. I have experienced good hotels and bad hotels, so I appreciate avoiding the latter.

    The biggest problem is which one to go for. 



  4. In my opinion, these Auckland New Zealand hotels are the most luxurious I have ever seen.
    I definitely have to schedule a trip here. My favorite hotel is the Elegant Beachfront Villa on the Northshore. I’ve always looked for places where I can see the sea or the ocean from my window.

    I can imagine every morning how I drink my coffee on this balcony and watch these amazing views. You convinced me that this place is worth a visit once in my life, and I can’t wait to do it. Thanks a lot and wish you all the best! 

    1. Nimrodngy that is a profound statement! The views are certainly amazing, as well as the location. Who doesn’t want to visit the place that Gandolf the Grey fought so bravely?

  5. Hello, I really want to appreciate your effort in putting together this website and writing this article. The quay street penthouse got my attention. I have been to New Zealand before but not o Auckland I think that next time I visit I will take  visit to on of this places. This is very well researched and we should all know there are beautiful places in the world 

  6. This would definitely be a beautiful place to visit i had no idea the lord of the rings was filmed in New Zealand I am a big fan of the movie this has got to  be  one of the most beautiful on earth i would really like to visit here some day and stay in of these beautiful hotels and enjoy this truly amazing view I’ve never seen anything quite like this great article and great job on the description and history you provided as well it provided me with so much knowledge that I otherwise would have never known – Jonathon

  7. i must say that New Zealand is a very fascinating country and Auckland is the most visited city there, because everyone wants to see where the Lord of the rings trilogy was filmed.i have been to auctland quite a few times and I must say it no joke the place is awesome and they have amazing hotels too,during my stay I stayed at the boat house as I have heard alot about the hotel so I went there first…but I must say your article is very much loaded.i would save it for future reference

  8. Thank you for this information. Having the most important information presented simply and clearly makes finding the ideal accommodation so much easier. I enjoy that the information provided isn‘t overwhelming and that I got from it what I was searching for. I think its a great overview of the available options in Auckland, and having not been there myself I feel I could trust that I would be in good hands here with these options. I would enjoy visiting many places, with New Zealand right up there, and now Auckland too. Should my travels take me there one day I would definitely consult this website again. Thank you!

  9. I’ve never been to New Zealand but I’d love to go there next year. Auckland really seems a perfect place to go for a holiday. Going through this review, the Boat House captured my attention as I think it must be very romantic to stay in a boat house like this. But also the Auckland Clifftop looks very tempting, I love nature and staying in such a beauatiful setting near a lake is the best holiday for me. I’ve never liked big hotels, the classical high-rise buildings with receptionists, the accommodation shown in your review is much more pleasant. We stayed in a similar house last year when we went to Scotland and it was wonderful. Lake view on one side, hills on the other side.
    Thank you for your review, I would have never found these gems without it!

  10. I have wanted to visit New Zealand for quite some time. My thought was to do New Zealand and Australia in one trip that lasted 4 to 6 months. Do you think that’s possible? The best rental I saw in your article was the Boat House. I really like the A-frame style and the view looks outstanding! February sounds like a great time for a visit! 

  11. First impression, the pictures are really good. Then I thought this would be all pricey places that regular people can’t afford to try it. But when I keep on browsing, actually the price range is vary. I would say this can be for everyone. “Cost per person” section makes it easy to budget it if you’re travelling with friends or family. Also, “what’s around” part can help you planning the activities at the hotel you stay. Very informative website for travelers who never go to New Zealand.

  12. I found your article very useful and elaborative . The hotel seems quite luxurious with so many facilities . Some hotels are on the seafront. The cost per night varies for different hotels.  Some hotels are quite expensive and some are affordable .Well New Zealand is a very beautiful country to visit and there are so many places to explore in New Zealand.  

    Thanks for sharing this great article!
