We chose to stay here because it was the closest hotel to my sister's house (Christmas at her place this year!) We had two nights here and it was more than adequate for our needs. We had a standard room with a kingsize bed. There is plenty of room to move and the ensuite bathroom is also big and spacious... More

Thank you for your comments and yes the hotel is very spacious. Regarding the breakfast buffet, we checked all elements and heat lamps and isolated the problem of the air conditioning vent above the breakfast bain marie putting our cold air. This was being used to the extremel humid weather over the period of your stay. We now try to... More

Thank you for your kind comments. It is always positive for the Hotel staff to receive such comments as generally people are more likely to comment negatively rather than praise.

Large room which worked well sharing with a colleague. Uncomfortable bed. Good cooked breakfast included in room tarriff but lunch provised with the conference was mediocre, sparse ran out of food and not worth $25. Certainly is retro but not enough orange or purple to be really "cool'

We had a convention at this hotel and found the facilities excellent. Our room was clean and comfortable and the room servicing was top-class. However the old TV could certainly do with updating - you expect the modern style TVs these days. The Conference food (morning and afternoon tea and buffet dinner was superb). Breakfast was included in our room... More

I am pleased you enjoyed your conference with us. If you had had it a month later the new flast screen TV's would have been installed. An order has just been placed for 142 new TV's is response to comments like yours and in an effort to increase guest satisfaction. Thank you agin for your comments. Kind Regards Murray Cook More

I travel a lot so have a reasonable idea of what to expect for the price and standard rating of accommodation - this hotel was way below the minimum standard.

Thank you for your comments regarding the Hotel. I have received no comments regarding the ironing board so will have housekeeping check every room for the board. As is often the problem when something may fail and we are never informed of it. Regarding the smoke smell in the corridor,we have 2 smoking rooms out of the 147 rooms and... More

I have stayed at this hotel, for the New Zealand annual bridge championships, for many of the last 20 years and, to be honest, it hasn't changed much in this period. This month I did notice a bit of refurbishing of the lounge furniture and the installation throughout the hotel of one of the most hideous carpets ever seen. Nonetheless,... More
