Forever remembered for its "The Lord of the Rings" legacy, New Zealand’s landscapes are deserving of their big screen fame—think lush rolling hills, volcano-sculpted moonscapes, UNESCO-listed glaciers, and white-sand beaches. Cities like Auckland, Wellington, and Queenstown follow suit, with photo-worthy scenery and a laid-back vibe.

Totally over rated. We did booked the best room available, expecting a great experience. Unfortunately the room was very small, poorly insulated, hearing the neighbors peeing and making coffee. No bath, low water pressure and ceiling height very low. Restaurant closed, could keep going, overall very disappointed

Surrounded by the shopping and entertainment streets of the waterfront. Fable Auckland, MGallery blends a protected historic building with chic, contemporary interior design. It boasts a great location in amongst the smart boutiques of Queen Street, right in the heart of Auckland and just off the scenic harbour.
I had another wonderful overnight at Fable Auckland. The location is perfect for my needs and the ease of checking in is always a plus for me. The room was beautiful, lovely and clean and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Once again staying the long weekend in Auckland, in the new Pinnacle Tower. The rooms were biger than the older part of the hotel and furnished beautifully. Not sure about the big window from the bathroom into the bedroom. The new Club Lounge is mre "serviceable" not as lush as the old one. Service was to-notch. Unfortunatly as it was the long weekend and very busy, staff were very 'stretched'.

My husband and I were warmly greeted at check-in and shown to our rooms. Our room was spacious, clean, and tidy. The coffee machine and little kitchenette were a bonus. We enjoyed breakfast and canapes/wine in the evening. We loved that it was walking distance from the town center but still felt like we were tucked away somewhere private. We will stay here again when we return.

We booked this holiday accommodation a year in advance, for my 60th birthday treat, as the cruise we had booked was cancelled due to COVID 19. We thought a deluxe treehouse with spa was very different and boy the choice was a revelation. The setting was excellent, set in a very tree and plant living area which at night the paths to the accommodation were lit up. You could see the mountains from our room also. The spa was spacious and relaxing. It was maintained on a daily basis even if not used. We stayed 6 nights, probably unusual, as it seems more of a short stay mid travel point of call., and housekeeping on a daily basis even though we did not need it every day. . Staff were fabulous and we felt part of a family. Special mention for MEL who did a mulitude of jobs always with a warm smile and Many who was service manager at the Monsoon bar and restaurant. Many had time for us and made us feel very welcome. Al, other staff we met were great also. Would we stay again? YesYes Yes
