Are you wanting Central Auckland Mrs F or elsewhere? We got a great deal at The Langham last December going through wotif. Has an open-air swimming pool & a wee spa area. It's not in the downtown area but has a shuttle bus to & from the Viaduct basin area.

The only other hotel I've stayed at in the City is the Hilton. This also had an outside lap pool (not as nice as at The Langham). But it was a great place to stay. Wotif.com do some great offers for Auckland hotels.

When are you coming? Just had a look at the Ramada Orewa @ The Nautilus. Approx 30mins north of Auckland, has some great views & Orewa Beach is lovely. Some great wineries Matakana way & there's the hot springs at Waiwera.

Lots of regional parks out this way - Shakespear, Wenderholm, Tawharanui & Mahurangi. I'm a bit biased to the Hibiscus Coast though.

There will be lots of family friendly places on the North Shore too but I haven't stayed there so I can't help. Sure others will be along who will be able to
