Stayed 4-nights. Check-in was fast and friendly Parking is good - parking in the general area can be limited, however plenty of room to pull into the hotel to offload bags etc., and they have a carpark under the hotel for guest parking - makes it very easy and all-weather. If staying for more than one night, suggest you get... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and the location is lovely, near to the beach. Takapuma is a nice area with some great restaurants nearby. The room or rooms were lovely, 16th floor with a fantastic view and brilliant amount of space and equipment, washing machine, dryer, dishwasher etc. Breakfast was good and overall a very nice stay

A grand lobby with a lovely book corner, shoebox rooms though. That's pretty standard in high-rise hotels, and this one is no exception. The room service is good, though, and the outside pool a real treat.

Great hotel, clean, neat and comfortable, great location in Takapuna, attentive staff. No complaints here! Free wi-fi would have been nice though, and you're better spending money elsewhere for breakfast.

I found this hotel to be clean, comfortable, quiet and convenient. My room had everything expected of a 4.5 star hotel room, with the added bonus of my own private balcony with a great view of the sea, and a small kitchenette which included crockery and cutlery, and a microwave. The other features of this hotel which I particularly liked... More

we stayed here for one night. We were on the 3rd Floor and had absolutely no view, unfortunately. Our room was opposite the elevator, so a bit noisy. The aircon was also noisy, even after switchend it off (!). Room was ok but you could notice that it is a bit outdated. Wifi is only free for the first hour.... More

i let this hotel feeling exhausted after 2 sleepless nights. The first night I thought I must have been sleeping near the laundry room as all I could hear the whole night was what I thought was a washing machine going all night long. After seeing reception the next morning and being told the duty manager would come speak to... More

We stayed here to be near our family. We hired a car from the airport. They provide complimentary parking which is great. I would recommend one has a car to stay here even though it is just around the corner from a lot of shops and great restaurants. The hotel itself was quiet and the rooms spacious. We had a... More

had a school leavers dinner here last night (30 Oct 2014). Grossly overpriced for what we had, completely average food and numerous people today effected from the appalling butter chicken. Why the school chose this venue is a complete mystery? They were even too tight to provide complentary Orange juice.
