First time staying at Tuakau Hotel and wow wee what a great place. A lovely welcome for me and my daughter by the receptionist made us feel welcome straight away. We ate at Elsies and was super impressed with our chicken schnitzel and beef cheeks. The room was newly renovated and very comfy. A million tv channels kept my daughter happy. The coffee machine is a nice touch. Would certainly recommend.

It’s a lovely hotel, very nice inside and very clean restrooms, and the ambiance is great, service in the bar was excellent. The restaurant menu had a good range of food, The food was just okay, the service was very slow we had to ask them to remove our main meal and for the desert menu. The staff was friendly and helpful though.

Stayed at Tuakau Hotel while delivering overseas guests to Auckland Airport next day. Hate Auckland and it's traffic shambles so Tuakau makes a good town to stay just south of the dreaded Auckland. Tuakau Hotel is a classic colonial hotel in a thriving cattle market town. The hotel has been beautifully refurbished and redecorated. Our rooms were spacious and very comfortable. Bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I've slept in for a while. Reception was warm and friendly and we were shown to our rooms, not just left to find our own way. Nice! Bathrooms were large, very clean and all the facilities worked properly. Strongly recommend the Tuakau Hotel if you are in the South Auckland area. One hour drive (with hold ups!) to AKL.

Room tip: Rooms 5 & 6 were very quiet and comfortable

Dear Mr_Mrs_Muttley

Thank you so much for your great and informative review. We really appreciate your feedback, and are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at the Tuakau Hotel. Auckland is famous for traffic at this stage. We are situated rather comfortably for your first night in, last night out when going to the airport, or just passing through. With the restaurant on site, and grocery store just across the road, you do not need to go anywhere if you wish to just check in and relax.
We hope to welcome you back soon.
Kind Regards
Tasha
