We stayed at this hotel (in a 1br apartment) at the end of a 10 day holiday in South Island. We were weary from campervan travel and needed to place to relax prior to coming home. We found this hotel to be well located and great value for money, but we do warn travellers to expect a dated appearance, especially in the lounge suite. It was very old and we sunk into it because it had very little support under the seats.
Good proximity to the city centre
Very large rooms
Nice, friendly staff
Free internet access from a computer located near reception
Double glazed windows in bedroom
Value for money
Located on a busy corner that gets a fair amount of traffic noise, even through the double glazed bedroom windows
No bath - shower only
Dated appearance of rooms, furmiture and kitchen stove
Musty smell throughout room
Very small lift
I wouldn't let the minuses put you off booking this hotel. Overall, I think the bottom line is that you get very good value for money at this hotel.
