I've stayed here a couple of times as I like to walk and can do this for meetings at Parliament and also walk down to the lake. It's nothing special but convenient and reasonably priced so is fine for quick business trips.

We also got a free room upgrade due to being priority guest members ( it's free to join and you get 20% off dining) our room was lovely and clean, great bed and great breakfast as usual but the food...

I've stayed here a couple of times on business due to the proximity to parliament house and Manuka (plenty of restaurants to choose from). Generally the service is good but on my last stay there was a long wait for front desk service as one staff member was trying to juggle check-in/out and phone inquiries. The entire hotel could really...

This is a good venue for me as it's close to the things I need to do, including taking a run down to the lake (2kms away). The hotel is advertised as having refurbished rooms but this is a bit of a stretch. They don't look that contemporary. But the bed was good, and the staff were helpful.

The hotel is in a good location. I found the front desk staff a little uncooperative. It is always annoying to see fitness facilities featured only to arrive and find that there is an extra charge for it, one not noted on the website.

Booked the flaming hot deal, it included room, parking and breakfast. Everything was lovely, staff friendly. Our room had a few plumbing issues. The cold water in the shower hammered terribly (other rooms on the same level had the same issue, as we could hear it from our room. Thank goodness no one had any really late or early showers!)....

Our friends stayed there recently and really enjoyed the experience. This hotel is not new but relatively well maintained. It's location near Manuka is a positive element. The restaurant is good with plenty of light and space.
