Good hotel, central to everything (easy walk) and easy to access by car.
Decor is conventional and still current.
Bathroom is good. No noticeable noise transfer from rooms/hallways. Twin beds were doubles, so a little on short side, but otherwise no complaints.
Staff are friendly and helpful. (aren't all Kiwis?)
Access to good eateries is great - they're everywhere around the block that hotel sits on. There's also a really good little whisky shop hiding under its shadow.
Nice stroll to the waterfront. Almost next door to the Sky Tower.
