The hotel has a fabulous location, the staff are friendly, polite and so professional. Even when faced with some of the rudest guests I have ever had the misfortune of standing behind. As there was 4 of us we had a 2 bedroom apartment, we were blown away by the size of the rooms and living room...simply huge and very... More

Loved loved having kitchen facilities and a washing machine and drier. Only used everything a few times, mainly for breakfast but it was well worth it. Even had a plunger and coffee to get me going. There's a Countdown (Woolies) very close by so you can get whatever supplies you need. Close to the harbour and also not far from... More

I chose this Hotel as it was centrally located and perfect for shopping as one of the entrance/exits was onto the street front! I didn't need to pay for additional transport as I could walk everywhere, for central shopping, dining, or attractions such as Te Papa and just a wander along the beautiful sea front. The room was clean and... More

Our group of 3 stayed for 3 nights in a two bedroom which was located on the top floor (7th) in number 704. The lift from ground level only goes to the 6th floor where reception is located. We had to use a short flights of stairs to get to the 7th floor which didn’t bother us per say however... More

We stayed here first week of the school holidays - 2 adults & 2 teenagers. We got the 2 bedroom apartment as we wanted the space. On checking in we got upgraded to the 3 Bedroom, which had even more space! It's not a sparkling new building like some of the Heritage chain with flash fittings, but everything was clean,... More

Spacious and very central location, with lots of heating options. Great value for money, even if the rooms are getting a little tired. Unfortunately the elevator noise was rather distracting in our room.

The hotel is fine. It is clean. Not that modern. The kitchen and bathrooms could definitely use an update in the suites. The location is great though. I would also recommend skipping the breakfast. It is about 18 bucks for fruit and cereal. There are a ton of cafes just outside the hotel down the street. I recommend just popping... More
