This lodge / Hotel is a great place to stay. It has a central city location while staying out of the smoggy centre of the city. It is across the street the Auckland Domain and walking distance to Parnell (20 mins) and Newmarket (10mins). If you don't feel like walking, buses are only 1-2 mins walk away
Rooms are very clean, good size. No faults. A fridge, microwave and TV are in the standard rooms. There is access to a couple of shared kitchens which are great if you want to save a few dollars on having to always eat out but still want a hotel feel. Making it a great alternative to private rooms in a back packer dorms for low budget travelers. And there are coin operated laundries.
Also their is a wonderful private garden area which I have never come across in an inner-city hotel. And swipe card access car parking.
Very good, can't fault it. You can't book instantly online so have to wait for emails to be replied to, but they seem to always reply within 24 hours. I think the reason for this is they are associated with the Cancer Society so they need to keep rooms for people require the hospital services. Though by staying here proceeds go to a good cause.
Overall an excellent place to stay and amazing value for the price. As it is a place where people staying may be undergoing hospital treatment or visiting sick relatives, if you have young children you would want them to be on their best behaviour
