I stayed here for two nights on a recent business trip. The views were fantastic, i was on the 13th floor and could see the city, mount victoria and harbour all from my balcony. WIth such a great view I thought the glass would be clean inside and out. The glass that was easy to get to from the balcony was filthy... disgusting in fact. You would think they would keep it clean if it is that easy to access? Room servicing was done by a young man that did not seem to care too much about the outcome... he didnt do a very good job at all.
The hotel is tired and in desperate need of a refurb. The shower was in the bath, very old school motel like and the fittings and fixtures were very dated. The room was comfortable as was the bed, I had a suite that was only 10% more per night so the extra room was nice.
The staff were all helpful and friendly and the room service food was delicious... cudos to the chef! There is free parking on site for guests and the Takapuna shops are a short walk so there is plenty of cafe's and other stores if you need anything.
Overall, a decent place to stay if you want to be on the North Shore.
