We liked the place - way too long a walk with four heavy bags (month of travel) to our room, which was warm but had two doubles. Given that.... We switched rooms, and of course it was colder than cold and an even longer walk but OK. Every time we tried to use the restaurant it was either closed (8:00 PM) or had a tour group eating there with an incredibly long wait. My advice would be, either you have a restaurant that services your guest, or POST YOUR HOURS!. Went down the street a few blocks and found a serviceable place to eat, but it would have been nice after driving up from Auckland to have something on the premises. The room was OK but nothing special.
