4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

Stayed in this hotel en route to French Polynesia. Location is excellent, just across from the arrivals terminal of the Auckland International Airport.

Hotel is very new and modern with great decor.

Got a superior room on the top floor at 50% discount being a member of Accor Advantage Plus during their global 50% off sale. This included free internet which is always a bonus.

Food in restaurant for dinner was fine. Breakfast buffet was great. Again 50% discount on food using the Accor Advantage Plus membership

My only issue, I discovered an extra credit card charge of $23.85 after I had finalised my account. Upon enquiring to the hotel, they said it was for mini-bar use and listed the items I apparently consumed. I replied that I did not consume any items from the mini bar, it was either an account mix up or not properly stocked prior to my arrival. Also, I told them at the time of checkout, that I did not use the mini-bar.

I'm not sure why or how this happened and I'm not sure if this happens at this hotel often, or if it has happened to others - certainly I did not comsume the mini bar items.

I'm wondering to myself, each time you check in to a hotel, should you count each and every item in the mini bar when you get into your room, to make sure all items are there? How do you protect against an account mixup or an error on re-stock, when this occurs generally after you've already left the hotel? Should you get the room service to come and verify with you that all items are present, and then again just on departure get the room service to do a final check with you, to prevent items being incorrectly charged against your account? Up until now, because I don't use the mini bar period, I generally don't take much notice of what is in the mini-bar, but after this incident, well I'm more inclined to get the list out and make sure it's all present. (even though what is on the list may not reflect what is actually supposed to be in the mini-bar ... eg. if a certain item is not available etc)

Room Tip: join Accor Advantage Plus for up to 50% discounts on rooms and up to 50% discounts on food

Fantastic hotel. Stayed here for an early morning flight. Found it good value - especially compared to Melbourne Airport Hotels. Spotlessly clean and comfortable, could see the planes with a great view - but VERY quiet. Amazingly easy to walk over the road to the airport in the morning. Free internet in the lobby, and some great toys for the kids also. It was fine for us but older persons may have trouble with the shower as ours was over a bath with a very high side.
