Auckland is a city with a true global appeal, a thriving metropolis where people from all over the world have come together to create a cultural centre like no other in New Zealand. With the Hotel Grand Windsor perfectly situated on the bustling Queen Street, you will be spoilt for opportunities to explore this iconic City during your stay. Guests choosing to stay within the perimeters of the city will find a wealth of attractions at their fingertips. Here, a historic legacy of timber weatherboard, corrugated iron rooves, gables, bays and decorative fretwork sit strikingly alongside the forward-looking architecture of the redeveloped waterfront and the 328-meter-high Sky Tower. Step out of Hotel Grand Windsor onto Queen Street, and soak up the atmosphere of a thriving café, restaurant and bar scene. Walk down to the Viaduct and Wynyard Quarter or take a trip further afield to the trendy Ponsonby. No trip to Auckland is complete without a visit to the lofty vantage point of Mount Eden, where a striking view of the city skyline will reward the hike up its green banks.For those looking to get out of the hustle and bustle of downtown Auckland, the Hauraki Gulf Islands across the harbour are some of the most idyllic in the world. Perfect as recreational retreats for the city, they are also protected sanctuaries of the native birds, trees and plants of the North Island. Here, the world-renowned Waiheke Island is the largest, a beautiful holiday spot of white sand beaches and coves, vineyards and olive groves. Catch the late ferry back to enjoy an amazing sunset over the city skyline. Another option to get out of the city is to journey the 40km to the Wild West Coast in search of the beaches of Piha, Muriwai or Bethells, where black volcanic sand stands between you and the excellent surf conditions of the South Pacific Ocean.
