Auckland Rose Park Hotel
Ranked #35 of 66 Hotels in Auckland Central
Reviewed 2 March 2017

Givens:
Stayed on Friday night end of February 2017, one night
2 people, husband and wife, rode train from Wellington
No car and did not utilize the restaurant
Upstairs room that backed to a small car park
Room cooled by 10pm and a small fan made it very comfortable, was a warm sunny day

Pros:
QUIET!!!! even with the window wide open
Bed was comfortable and shower seemed fine
Room was clean, comfortable and the decor was good
Very reasonable price
Stored 2 large pieces of luggage, one of which was 0ver 5 feet long, from arrival until 5pm the next day (checked out already)
Stored an additional 2 bags after we checked out in the morning until 5pm while we walked around
Walking distance from Train, Parnell area, Dove Myer Robinson Park/Parnell Rose Gardens, the Auckland War Memorial Museum, Parnell Baths, the Vector Arena and the Tuning Fork, CBD maybe around 40 minutes one way/we did not go down town

Cons:
No AC
Appeared rooms that boarder Gladstone Road could have traffic noise with windows open

Conclusion:
Enjoyed the quiet night especially after Quest Wellington at 33 Hunter Street
Had a great time at the Tuning Fork attending performance by Mundy
Wonderful tour of the Rose Garden and Park in the morning and really enjoyed
Ate at The Little Big Cafe on Parnell on the way to the War Museum, maybe the best breakfast we've ever had!! Menu was intriguing and the courtyard in back was very enjoyable. Had Eggs Benedict and French Toast. Excellent taste and plated to match. I'd strongly recommend! We will be back.

Room Tip: Appeared to be a great city location if you have a vehicle

A warm welcome at reception set the tone for a relaxed stay Rose Park Hotel. Room was in convenient lower floor -easier to access when older...
The dining room overlooking the rose garden was a pleasant place to dine Menu was adequate for price.

Stayed in early February for one night attend a concert.
when we arrived at 2pm our room was not ready and we had to wait 15+ for it to be so ... once we got to our room we found it was not the room we had booked ( double queen with a view of the rose garden) but a room that contained a single queen and had a stunning view of the car park.
we then returned to reception to alert them to this... the staff were lovely about it and we got the key to the correct room ( although we also had to wait for this one to be ready)
once we got into the correct room the first thing we noticed was that it smelled very musty, like it hadn't been aired in years, when we turned the fan on it made an alarming noise and did not seem to be fastened correctly to the ceiling.

in summation
Lovely staff
dated hotel
would not stay here again

We just had 1 night in Auckland and the hotels in de CBD were full or really expensive so choose this hotel as the alternative. Reasonable price and location not to far from town. Well you get what you pay for. The rooms are really in need of a renovation, no air co, very dated, shower in bath and really way to low ( and I am not a tall person )
It was clean and staff was friendly and helpfull, no complaints here. Location, not too bad, a bus stop right next to the hotel, only the bus does not go that often. Walkable distance from Parnell, that is good. And the beautifull rose garden is right across the road. Will I visit again? I probably pay a little more and stay in the CDB.

We stayed here as we were attending a concert at the Vector Arena, which is a 15 minute walk away. Auckland CBD was another 10 minutes further on. Unfortunately this hotel is looking tired. Cracked tiles in the bathroom and an all round unkempt feel was prevalent. The rooms are also very warm with the ceiling fan serving no real purpose. We ended up keeping the balcony doors open which isn't ideal considering we were in a room on Gladstone Rd. My biggest issue was the lack of free wifi available. In this day and age, that's a big letdown. The staff were great however.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the main road
