On arrival, reception staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was poor. Reasonably clean but shabby especially the bathroom which had definitely seen better days. Didn't eat at the hotel restaurant as there were lots of nicer and cheaper places to eat nearby. Had to pay extra for car parking and internet access.

Just a one night stay thankfully, prior to catching the Picton Inter Islander ferry at the opposite end of the city. A very dark dreary Hotel with a rundown feel and appearance. The bedroom furniture and particularly the CRT television had seen better days. For our stay the room was very hot, no aircon and with leaving the window open... More

Made the mistake of choosing two nights accomodation here with work. The rooms where so hot that I had to 'sleep' with my windows, curtains and even door to my room open. I also left the fridge door open and had to take a cold shower at 1am to try and cool down. Needless to say there was no real... More

We stayed here two weeks ago. The room was small, with a CRT old TV. Fuzzy picture. No heat on a chilly morning, and thin walls. Could hear all activity in adjacent rooms---flushing, showers, conversations, and ahem other activities that take place in a bedroom. Staff is okay. Thin blanket and a rundown look.

We stayed for two nights and appreciated a high floor. The hotel is old, bathroom is small, but everything was thankfully clean. Staff were nice. Parking is cheaper than some other hotels, but it is not undercover but is off-street. Easy, pleasant stroll along the waterfront into the CBD. Would certainly stay again.

Stayed one night with a friend. Lobby and entrance are nice. Rooms are tired and old though. Furniture was worn out. Location and the views are amazing though. Felt a bit expensive for the place. Can get better places for these prices elsewhere in city.

I have stayed at this hotel twice. The rooms are good. They have a good breakfast spread though that is not included in the fare. Wifi is available at extra cost. The location is very convenient and right opposite the harbor close to CBD. They have a good bar as well though you may have great choices in the near... More

Just spent 3 nights there - awaiting our accommodation coming available in Martinborough. Check-in went fine until the receptionist mentioned $18 per day for their parking area. The room was tidy but not very comfortable - and unfortunately we had a very noisy family opposite on day one and for the other two days we had several families with young... More

We booked this hotel because of it's location and was looking for a place to stay on New Years Eve that would be close to the Harbour fireworks (Which didnt end up happening).
