“Fantastic dinner - expensive average breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Stayed at CityLife hotel. Had a fantastic dinner including appetizer - and good service. Breakfast, however, was way too expensive (NZ$ 35) and the quality was not that impressive.

“Delicious, Scrumptious Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

This is a quiet restaurant with delicious food catering for many tasts. We chose from the Mary Poppins menu which was $28 per person for a selection of breads and a main and complimentary drink. The desert was only $10 on to of this price so we had it too. Absolutely delicious cream

“Overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

I have rated this average due to the price - over 30$ for a breakfast buffet is far too much. The continental selection is poor for the price of $25

Did however eat poached eggs and bacon which I managed to acquire within my travel meal allowance - they were well cooked. Service as usual with the whole hotel was excellent
