Fantastic, friendly service! Modern , edgy atmosphere with beautiful views. Will definitely becoming back here!! Free movies. Free bottled water! Location is awesome! It’s right by the Viaduct. The restaurant downstairs is superb. You must eat here at least once!

"Fabulous hotel on the waterfront."

The location is fantastic. Across from the ferry terminal, easy walk into city centre and local restaurants, pubs and cafes. The staff were amazing! Friendly, happy and informative. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in all over the world.Only one slight issue and its not just at this hotel-in bathrooms where there is a small space between shower and vanity-staff need to remember to clean there as well. I dropped something and it fell into that tiny space which meant during retrieval I had to be careful not to touch the dirt and hair on the floor!

"Best hotel in NZ to stay if solo or couple"

Visited in mid-March. In a few words has great beds, good soundproofing and nice views over the harbor, as well as being "ground zero location" in the city of Auckland. The restaurant here has excellent breakfast. The bar is good for a couple of drinks before heading out but that's it. However, barman makes excellent cocktails. The next big thing about this hotel is staff. The staff is truly 10 out 10 and excellent on all points. The concierge is particularly excellent as is front desk staff too. I met the room cleaner too as coming back early and must say she did a superb job of cleaning my room. Normally on hotels like this in NZ, the service is rubbish ~ however, M Social is excellent. I found TV system has free up to date movies, although was out every night and jetlagged so did not use it except on the last morning.
