The Viaduct Harbour is where the major commercial and entertainment places are located. The residential places at the harbour ooze luxury while the cruise tours are the obvious highlights.
The local attractions at the harbor including the museums, restaurants and the number of events taking place here, makes this a rather special neighborhood. The annual Louis Vuitton Regattas, Volvo Round, the World Race stopover, the Auckland International Boat show and New Zealand Fashion Week- all are synonymous to this place.
On other days, a walk here is perfect during sunset.

If you want to be treated like royalty and have the best views in Auckland, this is the place to be. Located right at the end of the Viaduct Harbor, it is an easy walk to all the best places in Auckland Central. Need a massage? They have one in house. Need a good place to eat? Their Cafe is delightful.
A wonderful anniversary night away at the Sofitel. Special treat in the room and the extras like bath salts and sleep spray were appreciated. Highly recommended. Bit pricey but you get what you pay for!
I was there only for 1 night but I enjoyed the stay. I got a room on the top level so that was an added benefit. The room was large, bathroom was big and the bed was comfy. The location is great. You will have to walk a few blocks for food options or eat at the hotel. Gym was tiny and so was the swimming pool. Jacuzzi was good. The entrance the hotel is well kept and the staff is amazing. Valet is quite expensive at 45 overnight.
Excellent experience from check-in to checkout. Even when I checked out at 3:15am the staff where up beat, exceptionally friend and willing to help. Rooms are fantastic and one of the only places I've been to where the desk was the right height for me. Location was great for what I needed, but might not suit everybody. Will definitely be back next time I'm in town.
We went for brunch provided for free as part of our membership everything was included so it cost us nothing including drinks. We had a couple of service issues with dishes being incorrectly provided or prepared but the food itself was very good on the whole. It's a lovely setting and nice atmosphere with friendly staff. I would recommend and return.
