We stayed here before getting our hired sailing boat from Basywater marina. Service was good and the rooms have all the facilities and clean linen etc. But the hotel is fairly old, the rooms smell of mould and breakfast choice is pretty limited.

What a fantastic view!! Our plan was to reach the hotel before sunset and enjoy it from our sea view room. Unfortunately we came in late, but no worries, we enjoyed the sunrise which was as spectacular. The sea view room was fantastic. The room was quite large and very clean.

Please do NOT stay here. How on earth this place has 4 stars is a joke, many of the other reviews must not be legitimate. The bathrooms are mouldy, staff very rude and the meals are terrible. Beers are served hot and out of date. Even if this looks cheap, it’s not good value. Do

Dear chriscJ2789MR, Firstly, I would like to thank you for your feedback. Any feedback we receive helps to make us better. There are several issues raised in your feedback that will help us improve as a property, like your bathroom. You mention the meals were terrible, but upon investigation, you ate most of your meal and seemed happy when you left the restaurant that evening. Nonetheless, I have addressed your concerns with the relevant department heads and will follow up personally to understand what we can do better as a property. It is disappointing to hear that our standards were not up to par and I would like to extend my sincere apologies. We would like to assure you that we take customer feedback very seriously as it is only your valuable comments and suggestions that help us in our continuous effort to make improvements. We appreciate the feedback and will use it to fine tune our operations in the hope that upon your next visit we can exceed your expectations. Kind regards, VR Takapuna Team

Dear Vduncan 29, Thanks for your query, you can contact Information Centre upon arrival at the airport and they will arrange super shuttle or you can book online as well. It's very convenient. Thanks VR Takapuna Team.

The property is secluded so I found it very convenient that I had rented a car, and drove the 1 hour journey from the airport.(Alternarively, Uber maybe available in Auckland now) No problem to check in during off hours. Press intercom on side door and ask to get the envelope after some intro; complete check in the following day. Additional tip : Bayswater is gorgeous and has exquisite restaurant at the ferry point.
