Hotels in Panmure/Mt Wellington
Waipuna Hotel & Conference Centre
Waipuna Hotel and Conference Centre is a fairly large 4-star hotel located on the edge of Panmure Lagoon. It’s close to Sylvia Park, Pakuranga, Ellerslie, and Mt Wellington. It’s the largest hotel in East Auckland. It’s handy to the motorway and has a great jogging track around the lagoon, and there’s a large public swimming pool complex a short walk away too. Great for business or families. It wouldn’t be my pick for a romantic weekend but you could do worse.
