    Superb

    The hotel is very centrally located close to the Auckland CBD. It is competitively priced and a good location if you were travelling to Auckland for business. Its facilities are clean - and simple. I found the staff very friendly and helpful. I'd stay there again.

    The gym is basic - only a weights machine. No running or other cardio machines.

    Superb

    It was clean and comfortable. The location was great and it was easy to find and be able to get around to different parts of the city. Staff were friendly as well. They also had the portacot all ready to use. Thanx.

    Just I guess the noise early hours of the morning of people not wanting to go to sleep, but, in saying that it had no effect on my children that were fast asleep,so it didnt really bother me.

    Good

    Good size room. Good location.

    The continental breakfast was not very healthy or substantial. No healthy cereals were on offer, and the only thing for the toast was a choice of 2 jams & butter. By the way, I didn't notice many people eating there. Gym was very sparse for equipment.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    Walking distance to most areas in the city area especially the wharf, harbour, bus terminals, sky tower, markets, K'road and Queen Street.

    There were some moulds between the tiles in the bathroom which could easily be removed if the cleaning had been more thorough. A copy of newspaper was found behind the air cooler, left behind by previous guests.

    Fabulous

    The staff were very friendly whenever anything was required of them (prompt to answer, clear on responses, abundant smiles...). The hotel itself was clean, good value for money, not grand but but above par. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend it. More of a solo traveller type of hotel.

    A bit cold, they had two tiny oil heaters (not efficient enough) where a larger one twice the size would have been far more efficient (I know this from experience). It wasn't providing quite enough heat for the room so I still had to dress rather warmly

    Superb

    The location was excellent - close proximity and within walking distance to the Auckland cbd, Sky city and the viaduct plus we needed a hotel close to Oaks on Hobson where our friends were staying and Glen Lynn. The room was pleasant with views and was very reasonably priced.

    Superb

    Good central location, close to CBD, within walking distance to main shopping strip and attractions. There are many good restaurants within 5 minute walking distance, there are also 24/7 shops nearby if you do not wish to go out. Our room was well lit and quite spacious, our king room has cooking facilities and a good comfy king sized [2 conjoined single beds] bed. Everything was neat and tidy and CLEAN. We found the price very reasonable too and 24 hour check in was a bonus for people with early/late flights. Staff were eager to help, hotel arrange airport transfer easily arranged and affordable.

    Just a couple of minuses. The plumbing vent on the bathroom floor emits rather interesting smells! The shower cabinet will be too small for some so if you have kids that needs washing up might be a bit hard. The pillows provided were unsupportive. Overall though, it was a pleasant stay and recommended.

    Very good

    Very close to where we needed to go - e.g., Civic Theatre, SkyCity etc

    The fact that I made the full amount of the one night stay of $180.00 when checking in and they took another $100.00 deposit off me and then refunded it the next day. The other two we were travelling with did not have to pay the $100 deposit. Unsure why this happened.

    Good

    Good, friendly service. Tidy, comfortable room. Handy location.

    The drain in our bathroom (room 312) was extremely foul smelling. Bathroom could be cleaner - check behind the toilet, Yuck. Room itself was comfortable and clean but the bathroom needs attending to.

    Facade of the hotel was very dirty ... cigarette butts on the front steps did not create a good first impression.
