During my travels to Auckland this is where I stayed most often (or rather where the corporate travel agent booked me into most often), I assume this means the price is relatively low. This is a well-run hotel with a wide variety of rooms types from standard motel style rooms to multi-bed room self-contained flats with balconies. All the rooms... More

I stay a lot in Auckland and the facilities and warm welcome make it a real home away from home. The friendly staff are genuinely pleased to see you and the rooms are first class. The central location is also a real bonus.

I spent one night for a work event, and was very impressed with the efficient and friendly staff at the front desk/concierge, as well as the cleanliness and overall impression of the room itself. Spick and span room, very comfortable and spacious - I was also pleasantly surprised to have ended up with a suite (booked as part of a... More

More than happy with the efficient check in and swift passage to ones room. surprisingly my room turned out to be a suite so a nice surprise. Well set up room with kitchen and laundry facilities. More than comfortable for a nights stay. Very central location, is set back from central Queen street but accessible to it via a walkway.

One night. I have stayed there for business a lot. Got 2 bottles of wine as a present as it was our 45th wedding anniversary plus a small gift for 20th stay. Close to Sky City where we went to Sugar Club and a convenient location. Clean and presentable room as usual.

Fantastic stay. Room was not quite ready but offered to put us in another room. Was ready in 5 minutes anyway and gave us time for a cocktail. Cannot fault the experience in any way. Luggage taken to the room. Car brought to the door by smiling staff. Fantastic.

Stayed here in a Deluxe suite for 3 nights, the room was of good size and layout, including washing machine and dryer. The bed was comfy and been on the 21st floor had no problem with street noise, however you do get the usual city noise of air con units etc, which didn't affect our sleep. Must give mention to...

Great hotel in the middle of the city. Not much of a view but really, this city is about getting out! The room is very large with everything you need even dishwasher :) the nice touch the staff leaves behind is what really makes it's special like fresh milk in your fridge and nice soaps in the bathroom. Plus the... More

I would happily stay here again. Room was spacious and clean. They loaned me an adapter so I could charge my toys, and the price was right. Easy walking to the Maritime Museum and harbor. Lots of shopping & restaurants on Queen and the surrounding areas. You will be happy here.
