Stayed here 4 days early January, found the hotel to be in great location for cafes, bars and shopping. Also bus to/from airport is right outside the door. We were early for check in and our room wasn't ready so they promptly put us in a room that was ready, great work by the friendly receptionist. Parking looked a bit...

We arrived on an early flight and left on an evening plane. The staff did everything possible to get us into a room early and ensure our departure was a late as possible - thanks. This hotel is right in the middle of the shopping district. - Great location for shoppers

I would return to this hotel again and recommend it others. Our room was upgraded as the receptionist felt we would be more comfortable and no cost was added to our bill. The facilities were well maintained and clean. Loved the location as well. It was close to shops and bus services.

This place is ok but not quite up to my 4 star expectations. Service was average, nobody offered to help with my luggage, and while a car park was offered, I wasn't told this came at a cost until I was checking out. Room is fine but water pressure is terrible and some of the tap are loose. Would stay...

Good central location and the room was cleaned and well equipped. Not very light with few windows. Disappointing response when asking for help to book a pizza restaurant - " Everything will be fully booked would you like me to get a delivery from Domino's?" Not quite the same thing, especially when I had mentioned that it was my daughters...

We booked a one-bedroom apartment. After the palatial old European hotels we'd just been staying in, the stark unfussy modern interior was a bit of a shock to the system, but we warmed to the place, for a number of reasons. First, the location is perfect. Second, although initially we weren't sure about our windowless bedroom, we found it so...

Booked a room last minute on way from Auckland to Wellington. After 9 hours on the road, was looking forward to a nice sleep. Got to room. Was quite small and a bit dated. Noted no opening windows as it was quite hot. Went out and came back ready for bed. Turned on this antiquated looking air conditioning unit. Sounded...

I went for the weekend with 2 friends. The All blacks were playing that weekend so the city was buzzing. Hotel was older and in need of refurbishment. Location was very good, perhaps the only real attraction. Our one bedroom apartment was over priced and it felt like a simple serviced apartment. It was the second most expensive option for...

Comfortable room - was a bit disappointed that wifi would only work from parts of the room (room #507) - also curtains were not great at blacking out the room. Room size was generous and service friendly.
