Cordis Hotel Auckland Review


This is Auckland’s best family hotel. It’s large with 411 rooms and 2 restaurants. And it’s as luxurious as you would expect from a 5 star hotel. Cordis Auckland has a large heated pool on the rooftop that is open year round, there’s also a hot tub, sauna and the magnificent Chuan Spa. They offer free use of electric bikes to explore Auckland and they have a kids club.


The location is a 6/10 for tourists. It’s at the top end of Auckland’s CBD well away from the Sky Tower and even further from the Viaduct Harbour. You can walk to anywhere in Auckland from here but you’ll likely end up using uber a fair bit or the inner link bus. There is an old cemetary across the road which is great if your a history buff but may be off putting if you’re superstitious. Most guests would come and go without ever being aware of the grave yard so don’t let that put you off this excellent well priced luxury hotel.

Restaurants & Bars

Eight restaurant is a 9/10. Eight restaurant is named for its eight separate kitchens, there’s Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Italian, a New York style grill, a great salad bar, a seafood kitchen and last but not least a dessert kitchen. This is great for families as there really is something here for every taste and it’s all high quality.

The Lobby Lounge offers a la carte dining lunch and dinner as well as amazing high teas and a tempting cocktail list.

Accommodation Standard

The standard of accommodation offered at Cordis Hotel is a 10/10. The hotel has been refurbished regularly over the years, the rooms are large by Auckland Hotel standards, the smallest rooms are 28 square metres or 300 square feet.
