We got a great deal on room price over Easter, so we were happy enough. The room was fine, althought the layout was a bit wierd & the sliding bathroom door was very noisy & only inches away from the bed - so it was impossible to not wake up my partner when I got up in the middle of... More

A nicely placed hotel across the bridge from Auckland. Stayed here to be near family. Room was comfortable with little kitchenette and great facilities in room except no safe. A bit shocked not to have a safe,which is nowadays a must so that you don't carry your passport and all your cash. So, this was difficult. Parking during the day... More

We had a great room with fantastic views, we stayed 3 nights with a baby and the one bedroom was perfect for our needs. The servicing by the cleaners was fantastic and they were always very considerate if our son was sleeping - coming back when they would not wake him etc. However the check in trainee was left on...

My husband left the hotel around 7am to go to work and approx. 1.2hrs later I heard the door opening thinking he was back. I looked up to see a male staff member standing at the bottom of the bed. Shocked was an understatement. He then walked back towards the door then turned around, came back and apologised! I rang... More

We stayed here in early April 2014. The hotel promises a lot. Good Facilities although the Gym and Pool doubles as a training center. Given that rates you are paying for accommodation you would think that you would have sole use, not that it bothered me that much. what bothered me more was the general cleanliness of the pool area...

I enjoyed my stay there. However, I objected to being over charged and having to correct the front desk staff of the correct rates by showing them my mail. It makes me feel there is an attempt to rip me off.

On 14/3/2014, we booked a Suite at your hotel for a relaxing weekend away to celebrate our son-in-laws 50th birthday. He lives in Takapuna. We arrived at the hotel and had no problem booking in but when my wife wanted WiFi we were told that it would cost $19.95 for 1 day, which we think is very OTT, however we... More
