“Great boutique hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights in January. We enjoyed everything about this hotel. The location in the CBD was perfect, the staff was friendly and helpful, the room was good, we liked the modern architecture, and breakfast was excellent. We also liked having a glass of wine in the sitting room each evening. It gave us a chance to meet the other guests. Definitely recommend this hotel.

Just spend Valentine night here. Very retro, funky, good service, magic bed linen, unbeatable location and quiet. Had a Boutique suite which was just perfect. Keep it simple and do the basics right and you cannot go wrong. Highly recommended.

We moved to this hotel from another after recommendations from friends and boy are we glad! So modern and funky. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Loved the room! Location is slap bang in the middle of the CBD. So glad to find a hotel that cares about its guests and has well deserved pride in itself. Thanks for turning around our Anniversary experience!

This place is smack in the middle of town. Well decorated and trendy styled rooms. I was able to walk to the main downtown area and Skytower multiple times.
The bathroom is comfortable and spacious. The beds are a bit too soft and mushy for me. Rooms are clean and quiet. The staff is helpful and accommodating. Breakfast area is very nice with a good selection.

We spent just one night in this wonderful Hotel. All the front of house staff are female and very attractive too. They park your car and help with the luggage and always have a smile. The owner invited us for pre dinner drinks in the library which gave us the opportunity to meet fellow guests which was very pleasant.
The room was very comfortable and quiet with excellent Wi Fi which is a must for us long distance travellers. The staff were all extremely helpful and eager to please, especially Monica.
Easy walking distance from main shops and the Sky Tower which a must visit. If we go back to Auckland we will definitely go back there.

Stayed Christmas Eve. If you are looking for an outstanding boutique hotel in Auckland, this is your spot. Staff were incredibly helpful, even offering to carry several 50+ pound bags (i didn't let them - haha!). The rooms are spacious with excellent internet. The hotel provided multiple converters for the laptop, phones, etc.

Breakfast was very nice!

We had a quick stay en route to Rotorua. My only gripe was checkout time of 10 maybe. A bit earlier than expected.

Strongly recommend this hotel...Excellent overall

Loved the room, service and location. Such a beautiful hotel, staff go above and beyond. Continental breakfast was amazing fresh delicious choices, the restaurant food was delicious. Very welcoming and comfortable, the beds are amazing and the room can be completely darkened.

Room Tip: Standard room was fantastic
