Great location, Big rooms

My first time staying at the VR. I really enjoyed it. Spacious room in a very picturesque part of Auckland. It overlooks the Bayswater Marina and Harbour Bridge. Worst part is actually getting to the hotel down Lake Road as traffic is diabolical at any time of day, The Marina is nice to walk around but no shops or anything there. If you want quiet and relaxing this is the place for you. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
A comfortable stay with a lovely view

We stayed for a few days in this apartment hotel. The apartment itself was very spacious, clean, with great views on the marina and the sea. Everything worked well, the kitchen was quite equipped. There was daily room service which was very good. The staff was very friendly and helpful with any question we had. We got complimentary tickets to ferry which was really nice. Plenty of parking. We would return. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
VPT lacking polish
Mar 2nd, 2020
Han overnight stat in a two bedroom apartment and I it was very disappointing in many aspects. Location wise no concerns as it was near the Bayswater ferry terminal and a easy walk from the hotel. The staff are very inexperienced and lacked knowledge of the organisation that they represent. The breakfast was simply a disgrace, poorly presented and of a horrible standard. The room also offers no positive vibes. The evening meal was very nice , butter chicken and prawns were great . Service left a lot to be desired. Nice view of Auckland was a plus. Room was very ordinary with a very poor floor plan. Our friends had to use our en-suite showering facilities !!! Carpet was very stained and dirty and dead cockroaches were evident. For a 5 star (???) hotel this was totally unacceptable. As you can read it is impossible for me to recommend VPT. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

We stayed on the 3rd floor in a lovely little room that upon first entering had a funny smell. This disappated after opening the ranch slider. The bed was super comfy and can't fault the rooms. The shower head did need fixing though as was uneven in flow. Cutlery was a bit sparse as we only had one teaspoon but I can live with that. My mum and I stayed there because I was getting married close by and wanted a special place to get ready. We confirmed time & location of breakfast with the reception desk so we had enough time before we had to get ready. We arrived at the level 1 dining room for breakfast at exactly 7am when it was due to start service only to be met with a dark room. Confused, we walked around to reception (vacant before 8am) and up to the level 3 restaurant just in case we misheard. We went to head back down at 7.10 to check again joking that we'll have to go in and call out, not realizing that a staff member was in our lift. She opened the doors in the breakfast room, the lights came on and as we walked in, we were hit by an almighty stench of sewerage! The first thing we did was rush to the ranch slider, threw open the curtains and doors and stood outside to catch our breath; only to see the staff member walking between the tables spraying what I assume to be febreeze. Surely if it was that bad you'd air the place at least 30 minutes before service. She then proceed to uncover the cereals, which I hope weren't left from the day (week?!) before. There was only one sachet of each tea, no spoons and the orange juice had Grey sediment in the bottom of the very large container that she sat on top of the taps. Thank goodness for coffee, or so we thought because as we made our way over to the "fresh" pot, she came out of the kitchen with a boiling jug of water to pour it into the percolator! That was the last straw, we took our cereal, retreated to our room and ate on the deck in the fresh air. Wretch! I imagine if you stay on level 1 you may have the same smell. Level 3 was fine. So in summary. Do not have the breakfast. It's definitely not 5 star quality. Get the food inspectors in! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

For accomodation that calls it’s “executive suites” an old looking motel room with the view of a carpark, it’s pretty poor. Over priced, best view is from the restaurant but the drinks come warm as the staff don’t seem to know about hospitality. Don’t do it, it’s not worth the disappointment TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
