Whether it be for one night or an extended stay, every guest needs a home away from home. Heritage Auckland provides that and much more. Set within one of the city's most recognisable historic landmark buildings, the iconic Farmers department store building, it’s an Auckland hotel accommodation experience without peer.
We offer a range of accommodation options to suit every need and budget. Choose from two accommodation wings, the Hotel or Tower. Both offer everything you need to feel at home during your stay, and provide a level of comfort that sets it apart from other Auckland hotels.

At the end of the day, we all need to unwind, and the hotel features an outdoor rooftop swimming pool, gym and a floodlit tennis court with racquets and balls available for hire.
Feeling hungry? Hectors Restaurant is charmingly positioned under a canopy of palms, in the dramatic seven-storey atrium, and offers a delicious menu that highlights local produce.
Heritage Auckland are pleased to announce that for the added comfort of all guests, and in line with current market expectations, the hotel has been entirely smoke free since 2012.

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Staying in a one bedroom studio style apartment. This place has giant windows!its nice and clean and has a kitchen too. Some of the fixtures don't work perfectly and the air conditioning controller is a dial without numbers...but it has one of the nicest pools in Auckland. It also has a tennis court and sauna. There's actually an indoor lap pool too and two gym rooms. It's a bit of a mission to find them but that's part of the adventure.

Review:   Really great hotel with a central location, right around the corner of the sky tower. There are two parts a renovated tower and the old building. Our room was in the old building, which is already a little outdated. Carpet in the floor was smelling a bit. Standard rooms are very small, recommend an upgrade to the deluxe. Roof pool is just amazing. Super friendly staff!!

Review:   Nice hotel with a great location. It's only a few blocks away from the Waterfront with a plethora of restaurants and bars. Also, walking distance to the Cruise Port Terminal at Princes Wharf. It's 2 blocks to Sky City with the Shy Tower and Casino. The rooms are clean with high ceilings, large windows, and sumptuous bed linens. The body length pillows were a welcome surprise. My room even had a full stove, kitchen sink with Garbage Disposal, dishes, pots, pans, glassware, coffee pot, and a toaster. Allowing the option of cooking and eating in for those on a budget. The rooftop pool was also surprisingly large and deep. The gym is a little bit small. But it opens up to the Pool. That's a good thing and bad at the same time if you don't want to be watched by everyone at the Pool. I'm a bit shy on that matter. There is a Spa, but I did not have time to check it out on my short stay. The Staff is very friendly and helpful. I was having trouble connecting to the free WiFi and the front desk lady set it up on my phone for me. I was also able to request and get Early Arrival for my room at no ectra charge, which was ready and waiting for me when I arrived. After a 13 hour flight, that was a big plus. I would highly recommend this hotel for it's amenities and location.

Review:   Fairly nice period hotel in central location. Good amenities like roof top pool, indoor lap pool and gym. We particularly liked that the room was specifically designed for 4 people with a room divider between the two double beds, and a small kitchen. Front desk staff were pretty friendly and happy to spend the time giving us tourist advice on things to do. On the negative front, it’s seems pretty antiquated, in the era of Netflix, to cap the free wifi at 2GB per room per 24 hours and then charge for extra. We also tried the room service one evening and found that two of our choices weren’t available, and the order took about 1 hour and 20 minutes to arrive (ordered at 8pm).

Review:   Historic (as the name heritage says) building. Former Farmers building but has been a hotel for long time. As you move through the hotel you can see the old flooring, beams etc. The hotel signature restaurant "Hectors" (named after long departed cockatoo) is located inside the alcove made by the surrounding rooms. Famously is the Grand Tearoom on the 7th floor. Nowadays used for elaborate functions and events. The hotel added an apartment style wing about 20 years ago.
