    Had been to a conference at this hotel the year previous and stayed elsewhere, this year got the complete package including meals. Our group also made the most of the bar... Porterhouse restaurant for one dinner - they specialise in meat. Not great quantities, but certainly very good cuts. Breakfasts were a step above other hotels I've stayed at. All... More

    I recently spent a night in this hotel and can recommend it highly. The room was spacious and warm (on a cold winter's night) with all the usual features. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was very clean and tidy. The restaurant is hidden away around the corner past the bar and was a surprising hit. I only... More

    I stayed a night here for my sisters 21st, seemed easier than getting a taxi home to our palace in Porirua. The room was great and really spacious. Had a usable deck area which was a nice surprise. The bathroom was really lovely. Room was clean and nice and had no complaints at all. Staff were helpful and friendly. If... More

    The upside: beautiful hotel, central location, nice staff, nice rooms. The downside: could not figure out how to operate the heating/ air conditioning sysytem. Had mangement twice come to room and set system for me. Still unable to figure system out. It's either too hot or freezing. Had to change rooms after first night due to construction noise next door.... More

    Hi John, Thank you for your review, though we are of course disappointed to hear that your experience was a negative one. In light of your review, we will reassess the in-room instruction manuals for the air conditioning units to see if they can be better worded. Also, please accept our apologies regarding the construction noise on the neigbouring site.... More

    I booked a double room by mistake but staff more than happy to move us to a queen room as soon as one was available. All staff extremely helpful and friendly.
