Naumi Studio Wellington

From a grand entrance on Dunlop Street, guests are transported into a sensory wonderland – from the grand bar in the heart of the hotel to the sumptuous lounge and the Parlour and lobby. These spaces all reflect the love story of Lady Naumi – the original custodian of the Naumi Hotel. Her portrait hangs proudly at reception. The hotel dazzles with the talents of New Zealand artists and designers. The large scale floral backdrop, created by Art Dep’t NZ, which is completely covered in gold leaf sits majestically behind reception, lying below are bespoke rugs created by artist Karl Maughan and flowing through to the lobby are our gigantic lighted floral sculpture by Angus Muir Designs. We warmly welcome you to take in your surrounds with a drink at the bar, or by dining at Lola Rouge or dream the day away in our pastel Parlour.

Amazing location

A comfortable stay. The bed and shower were perfect. The atmosphere of the area is great and you walk out near all the fantastic bars and restaurants. It was still quiet in the room at night which was great.

Cordis Stay Auckland

Reviewed By vanda b

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'.

Helpful staff at check-in. We had a great room with a view of the runway (especially good watching landings on a windy day!) We enjoyed drinks at the bar with friendly crew looking after us and an enjoyable dining experience later! Perfect to wake up in the morning and go to check-in without setting a foot outside!!

Pause for a moment of ‘wow’ as you walk through the lobby, a sleek century-old courthouse transformed for an impressive arrival. Then rise up to your room. Once climbed by legendary French Spiderman Alain Robert, our towering hotel takes the meaning of ‘home away from home’ to new heights. Above it all, slide into a contemporary vibe and discover Auckland from the city centre. You’ve got culture, entertainment and the great outdoors on your doorstep!

Hilton Auckland

Sleek rooms, gorgeous views, the perfect location - have it all at Hilton Auckland. Our waterfront hotel has sundecks, private balconies and walls of windows for views of the harbour you won't find anywhere else. We're a quick walk from the central business district and Quay Street restaurants, shops and nightlife. Our 24-hour concierge team is happy to set up sightseeing tours during your stay. Enjoy fresh seafood in FISH Restaurant, complete with panoramic harbour views, or head downstairs to Bellini Bar for coffee, a bite to eat or expertly mixed cocktail. Our outdoor lap pool is on the fourth floor of the hotel, suspended above the wharf. Swim to the end of the pool to see the underwater viewing window that looks out to the harbour over to the North Shore.

Spectacular, on the water, close to everything

Reviewed By Robert W

We checked in late after arriving from the US. All the usual services were in play, and we awoke to a beautiful iew of Auckland harbor. The breakfast was special because t focused on healthy options, including some from the sea! After a side-trip to Wellington, we returned and the same staff greeted us like old friends. The restaurant FISH was superb (2nd floor), as was the Belini Bar on the 1st floor.
