Hotel is located walking distance to local restaurants & bars - Really good location. Decent hotel, we got one of the recently refurbished rooms which was very nice. The corridors smelled of fresh paint, which I'm sure will wear off soon. Fantastic breakfast. The staff were very helpful & friendly, especially the young lady at breakfast who recommended local bars... More

The hotel is being refurbished, our room was yet to be done, a bit tired but still clean and comfortable. Conveniently located on Northbourne Avenue with bus stop @ the front door and 3 stops to Civic Centre. Breakfast was in a large dining room / restaurant with a buffet. The food was good with an large selection for breakfast.

This hotel is currently being refurbished. It is conveniently situated on North Bourne avenue, so close to everything including Civic. Due to the renovations, you may or many not get a new room, so I was lucky enough to get a new suite. The suite was 2 open plan rooms, with a good work area in the lounge and a... More

I have stayed here many times. On my last visit I was given a renovated room which was lovely. It is a great location and the price is right for what's you get. Price included a good hotel breakfast! I didn't have under cover parking which was a negative.

I stayed here for eight days back in January and had a great experience. I was double upgraded from a heritage room to a one-bed apartment (part of a new year's promotion) and I don’t have a bad thing to say about it. The apartment itself was modern, clean and spacious. There was free wifi that was super quick, a... More

Stayed 1 night at the Rex Hotel. We were in one of the old rooms. The hotel is currently undergoing renovations and the new rooms look nice, but we weren't lucky enough to get one. First impression is great, the lobby is very nice and staff were friendly. Elevator however is on par with the ones I've encountered in villages... More
