Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Prison food, would be a compliment. I usually love a good hotel breakfast. But this was bad. Grey eggs, rock hard sausages. Fruit and juice were the only ok things. Won’t be back.

Ample seating , clean and excellent service from the friendly staff. Good selection of buffet. Only downside, was that main course servings were not kept hot/ heated. Overall good value.

We were booked for the 8.30pm sitting and when we got there. We went to get our food and almost all the food on the buffet was empty or hardly anything in it. The meat was gross as it looks like left over from the...night before and when I ask the chef her respond was not good. I was not the only person complaining.as there were other customers complaining to me, so I approach the manager about it and then he steps in and fix it. My suggestion is when you have different setting times the buffet MUST be reset like new between each setting. This mean you are not eating left over from the previous setting.More

The breakfast is terrible. All the food was cold and the bacon was dripping in oil. The croissants were rock hard. They don't even supply butter. The only thing that gave it one star was the orange juice was nice. As the food was terrible....At 34 dollars per person I should of got a refund. Worst breakfast of any hotel I have stayed atMore

We had dinner here the first night of our trip to New Zealand and Australia which started in Auckland. The restaurant is located at the SkyCity Hotel and it 80+ stories up. It has a revolving flour so you get to view Auckland as you...have dinner. For a group dinner, it was surprisingly good. Everything was well prepared and the service was excellent.More

We were received nicely and introduced to the Buffett layout, and taken to our table. After that the staff in the restaurant did not get the message about our drinks, & seemed to be busy chatting among themselves rather than giving service. To be fair,...some staff were good & helpful. The table was chipped, & a bit sticky. The salt was wet — got replaced by a new salt, with the same problem. The meal was not hot …. The buffet food was mostly warm, rather than hot. Seems like a fundamental requirement for hot food to be hot. Overall — a Ho-hum experience, not one we want to repeat.More

A great selection of meats, salad, vegetables and desserts. Drinks are $5 extra for non alcoholic. The roast beef was the best i've had for a long time. You have 90 minutes to eat lunch or dinner.

Selection of food very basic and quite tasteless. Nothing looked particularly interesting. Very noisy with children running around. The children in our party enjoyed the food as they prefer bland food. They enjoyed all the puddings. Would I go back. Definitely not and certainly would...never reoommend. The reason we chose this buffet was because we had a nice meal here about 7 years ago. For me the beetroot salad and orzo salad were the best.More

You can't go much better for a reasonably priced dinner experience in Auckland's CBD. The variety of the Smogarsboard is tasty & nicely presented. Although the dishes per se are nothing crafty or special. Plenty of seafood, some stews (two with beef & other optIons)...- but only chicken & pork/ham as main meats. A number of veges, including potatoe & rice dishes are on offer of course, too. Good salads though - a diverse range well presented. The (only) soup was watery. However, the desserts were to die for - yummy! Staff was very attentive, friendly & accommodating. Bookings are essential. It feels really crowded, since it is a large place, and certainly well attended ...More
