              A lovely gracious hotel. Quiet, very well located, easy to reach and to journey away from. Quiet efficient operation. Spotlessly clean. Valet service wonderful for someone arriving by private car from a location outside of Auckland. That it is not part of another operation, but is just a stand alone hotel, allows for a more intimate personal feel to the guest experience.

              the friendliness of the staff, the location of the hotel, and it was made possible for us to arrive early into our room as we had a wedding to attend, which we really appreciated.i would highly recommend The Stamford Plaza Hotel

              I upgraded to a suite and it felt like luxury. The location was great.

              Customer service could be improved. I would expect a high degree of 'service' from a hotel with the Stamford name and that comes at that price.

              had a really friendly lady at checkin who was excelent and bubbly.I like the location of the Stamford Paza Auckland as it is close to the viaduct basin for evening meals and close to Queens Street shops as well as buses to New Market or Ponsonby.

              The location of the hotel was fantastic. Very central and close to all the main attraction.

              I would have liked a beauty and spa services/facilities offered, or at least an affiliation with a reputed beauty & spa provider.

              The service was amazing. Even with the busy intake of people staying and delay to check in, the staff were 100% professional and accommodating to us as possible. Would stay there again when next in NZ

              The delay to check in and that our details were not in their system when we checked in.

              Loved the location, enjoyed breakfast. Didn't really spend much waking time there.

              Took some time to check out, didn't find the bed comfortable - don't like joined beds.

              The location is perfect to explore Auckland.

              The only slight mix up was the booking form stated the room needed to be vacated by midday and I got a call at 11.30am stating we should have booked out by 11am. Once I informed them of this the hotel stated they was no hurry and apologised for the confusion.

              1/. Location 2/. International feel

              Over priced coffee, which wasnt any good, over priced rooms - even mine , which you could only describe as a standard room - nothing flash. Better value elsewhere in the city at this price point. $ 275.00 Surly check in staff - who did not inform you well as to options at the hotel and who were dismissive and cool. I only stayed here as was attending a seminar in the hotel on the Friday. Would not recommend it and would not stay in the hotel again.
