The fantastic views of the city and surrounding areas. Walking distance to the beach and restuarants. Gym and pool also excellent
Only thing was the lighting in the kitchen could have been improved, however this was a good excuse not to have to cook. Also the minibar contents took up most of the fridge space.
good location, near to the bus stops to all places that I planned to visit.
internet connection is not worth to its price, $20 per day but the wifi signal is always poor, some of the ports are blocked...
lovely room with great views, & spot on room service.
The most beautiful view in Auckland and the sunrise was breathtaking! Lovely room and friendly, very pleasant staff.
No free WiFi, but not a great issue.
Wonderful view. Good to have a terrace. Perhaps clean the windows, otherwise good cleanliness and comfort. Nice touch to have magazines. Perhaps a couple of biscuits with the free tea and coffee would be a nice touch and two bath robes, not one. Otherwise it was very very nice. Very comfortable beds and couches. The staff at the desk did not know much English. Overall enjoyed our stay.
Good quality hotel, helpful staff, good facilities, excellent location for our purposes. The mini-suite room was perfect, plenty of room and facilities. We were only there for one night before flying out, but would definitely return to stay longer. Very comfortable hotel to stay in.
Nice people at reception desk, heating swimmingpool, big room
Too far away if you are interested in visiting Auckland downtown or taking the ferry.
Great views from our room of Auckland
We choose this Hotel because it had a gym and a pool . The gym equipment was badly neglected and No staff on duty Had to ask reception for pool towels and the pool was dirty in the three days we stayed the pool was never cleaned
Great location. Good pool/spa and room was great size. Room service food was also very good.
The standard of presentation and cleaniness wasnt quite what we expected but was ok.
Good spacious room with the interconnection. Pool and Gym good and excellent location for the property. Loved the views and having doors that open for fresh air. Good showers.
Staff during a fire alarm at 12:30 at night were terrible. No communication at all and mustered in hotel lobby prior to hotel being cleared. Of our two interconnecting rooms, one wasnt serviced on the first night and the rubbish in the other room wasnt removed for 2 days. Compendium said pool towels in changing rooms but they werent - you had to use room towels which then meant you never had enough. One hairdryer next to useless but luckily second room one was ok. Travel alot and felt it was a bit over priced for the standard.
We have stayed twice at the Spencer on Byron Hotel and both times have found our stay to be very enjoyable. This time we booked a studio unit and were upgraded to a larger unit which was fantastic and really appreciated. The view was also amazing.
The front desk staff was extremely friendly & always smiling! The location was amazing!!!! I felt like I "owed" the hotel money for the price that I paid for such a breathtaking view! Room service was quick & friendly...oh and the lamb ribs were to die for! All in All I would give the Castle Spencer 5 out of 5 stars!
Good location ie close to beach, restaurants, shops, bus route into city of Auckland. Studio apartment accommodation excellent. Friendly staff.
A bit pricey but we were there during Christmas high season holidays.
The staff were excellent in diffucult circumstances.
Had to wait soooo long for our room and we got there at the booking in time of 2pm. Not good enough and hard for staff. They did finally give us a free drink.
Location, staff and service, views, off-street parking
Rather overpriced compared with other similar NZ hotels
