Rather than face the heavy traffic in Auckland we booked a 5 day stay at this hotel and we were quite pleased with the overall experience. Rooms were comfortable and spotlessly clean, bedding and towels equally so. Tea and coffee facilities were changed daily. In the room were a fan, radiator, iron and ironing board all of which made our stay more manageable. Staff were polite and friendly. They advised on a short drive to the train station to access Auckland itself and this was made easy with free local parking. This all added to a positive stay.
