Places to stay

New Zealand always manages to perfectly balance inventiveness and innovation with old-worldly charm and hospitality, and Auckland’s accommodation options are no exception to this. If you’re looking to stay in the middle of the city, base yourself between the Waitemata Harbour and Auckland’s lower CBD near the vibrant Britomart area which is home to some of the city’s trendiest hotels like SO/ Auckland, Hotel Debrett or M Social.

After more of an traditional experience? Just outside the CBD, you’ll find the delightful B&B, Peace and Plenty Inn, in the pretty village of Devonport. With streets lined with gorgeous little cafes and boutiques, Grey Lynn and Ponsonby are the perfect places to find an Airbnb and settle into the local rhythm. For a beach retreat, escape to Waiheke Island where you’ll find chic boutique hotels like The Oyster Inn and high-end B&Bs like The Boatshed or secure one of the great beach houses the island has to offer.

The bustling urban feel of the city, proximity to breathtaking scenery and the ease with which you can get around make choosing a place to stay in Auckland an easy task.

Things to do

Mix and match great food, stunning scenery and independent cultural institutions all during your time in Auckland. What better way to start your day than with a spot of brunch at one of the many notable cafes in Auckland’s ever-burgeoning breakfast scene - Bestie Cafe, Good Day and Daily Bread are a few favourites. If all you’re after is a coffee fix, Remedy Coffee, Espresso Workshop and Wednesdays Espresso Bar will give you a new appreciation for all things short black.

For a sanctuary away from the buzz of the city, Auckland Art Gallery Toi O Tamaki is open all day every day to provide you with an artistic reprieve for the world outside. To pick up the pace, venture on an hour’s drive to The Waitakere Ranges Regional Park where you can explore the pristine bush, black sand beaches and native wildlife or take a scenic hike to pools of Karekare Falls.

For artisans, unearth the unique finds in the boutiques, such as Douglas and Bec, Lonely and Twenty Seven Names, which line Ponsonby Road. Spend your days anyway is this delightful city.
