I just spent 3 god awful days at the Wynyard.
The "continental" breakfast is an exaggeration and a half. Cereal, toast and milk are available in the kitchen area. There is absolutely no service. The room, toilets and bathroom are basic and there is no elevator. All this I could deal with.
What was horrible is that they have magnet keys that open the room doors. All the keys open the rooms. It is terrifying for a single female traveller to be sleeping and having 2 men opening the door to their room. They told me that their key opened every door. I was assured that they somehow had a master key, however, when I tried to unlock another door with my key, it opened the room.
This hotel is unsafe.
Also, it closes on Sunday so if you have a flight later in the day, they will not hold your bag for you.
I recommend paying the extra money to stay at an actual hotel.
