Booked for one night as part of a business trip. While room wasn't ready on arrival they quickly arranged an alternative. Room was comfortable with all amenities clean and well presented. Reception was able to advise me on best ways to get around (Since I had no car) and offered to book airport shuttle for me. Deffinately will return.

Been here a couple times on business and it has been pretty good. Spacious, clean rooms and friendly staff. Having to use valet a little bit of a hassle, but the service is pretty good so wouldn't really complain there :)

Traveling for the ICC cricket world cup we stayed at this hotel was a truly wonderful experience. The hotel rooms are huge and give a sense of expansive living. It is very conveniently located and all the city attractions, eateries are at a close distance.In my experience Scenic country new zealand has a great chain of hotels in Scenic Hotels
