      Accommodation in Auckland

      Auckland 8 hours ago

      Dear VTers, can you recommend me a decent accommodation in Auckland? I mean, we'll be travelling quite on a bugdet so no Hilton , please. A small guesthouse will be perfect. Or maybe local company or trustworthy website offering this type of accommodation. Thank you in advance for your advice.

      Hi,

      Will be travelling to Auckland for a wedding at Waiuku in April. The following is a rough itinerary. Would appreciate any suggestions and tips:

      Arriving Auckland on Wednesday 2pm. Staying in Auckland city.
      Thursday morning, renting a car from the city and leaving for Waiuku for the wedding. Staying over night in Waiuku.
      Friday morning, booked tour at Spellbound caves. Thereafter, driving to Taupo and staying there for the night.
      Saturday morning, drive to Rotorau and Agrodome. Drive back to Auckland and staying the night in Auckland.
      Sunday morning return rental car. Depart Auckland Sunday night - shuttle to airport.

      1) How are the road conditions? Will a normal car do or do I need to rent a 4x4?
      2) Driving from Waiuku to Spellbound Caves, is it easy to find?
      3) What is the weather like in April? Is it quite chilly in Waiuku and Taupo?
      4) Any coffee places along the way?
      5) If i have half a day, with no rental car, would you suggest Devonport or Waiheke?

      Many thanks!

      No trains at the weekend?

      by craic Online Now Apr 9, 2008 at 5:59 AM

      I have been searching the train site - metlink - and it seems - to my horror - that there are no trains from Wellington to Featherstone with bus link to Martinborough on the weekends!!! Can someone confirm this? Thanks.

      I want to visit Martinbourough for a couple of days ...

      ... with my aged mother who is not terribly mobile.

      We will be travelling by train and then bus from is it Featherstone? I'll have to check how all that works out.

      Thing is we need a cheap place to stay close to the centre, as we have no car, and she can't walk far.
      I am picking it would be cheaper mid week?

      If you can help, great. And thanks.

      Can anyone please recommend some hotels to stay in whilst visiting Martinborough? I'm happy to spend up to NZ$120 per night (I need a double room for 2 nights).
