We have stayed here twice in January, as the rooms are very big and spacious for the location. As other reviewers have said, the parking is very tight and not easy to drive down to. The rooms are also almost unbearably hot, and even with the window open we struggled to keep cool. The corridors were even worse.

The staff were helpful, and the rooms nice and clean.

The only other comment we had is that we were not happy about the duvets only being wrapped in two sheets, and not having a proper duvet cover, so after turning over a few times during the night, you find the sheets have disappeared and you are covered in a duvet that has been used by countless others. I find this a little unhygienic.

Thank you for your review of St Martins Hollie J. Please be assured Hollie that all bedding is changed and cleaned on every full service and on the check out of guests. When you book to stay with us again our superior rooms all have air conditioning/heat pumps in them. Thank you for your positive comments on the staff and our room cleanliness and I have passed these on.

5 of us were attending an event in Auckland and booked a 2 bed apartment with sofa bed on Wotif. The rate was very good and the pictures made the apartment look very spacious. The location was very convenient. We arrived early and thankfully were allowed an early check in which was was gratefully received. The check in girl was helpful but omitted to tell us we had to swipe our room key to use the elevator so we spent several trips going up and down before we figured it out! This was after managing to get in the elevator, which was problem number 1. There is obviously no service elevator and so during the day it is constantly in use with the staff and cleaners and you have to wait ages to get the lift. One of the staff (looked like the manager!)had it full of laundry bags and there was no apology or explanation. The room was very small, quite dark and dingy and stuffy and with a very musty damp smell. the kitchen not particularly clean - stains on the oven. There is no servicing which is fine but we did have fresh towels on one of the 3 days - we ran out of toilet paper and milk so a daily top up would be helpful. The room had no air con and was very stuffy especially at night. The breakfast is in a funny room - which felt like some kind of hospital or institution room!! But the self service breakfast was adequate enough. All in all it was OK for our needs - good location and helpful staff but the room was very small and stuffy and not as we had been led to believe on the picture on the website.

We stayed at St Martins with our grandchildren and found the 2 bedroom apartment just what we wanted. The grandchildren loved the pool and the pancakes and now want one of their own! We stayed in a superior room which was great as it had a washing machine and air conditioning. Fantastic view from the 17th floor. We found the staff all very helpful and answered all of our questions and requests. Would recommend.

We have stayed here several times we find the staff friendly and helpful It has proved an ideal location for attending the ASB classic and Heineken open involving a 20 minute walk over Grafton Bridge then down Grafton Road however coming up wasn't so easy! alright if you were younger We were 2 couples sharing the apartment on the 9th floor this time we had an internal bedroom and we prefer both bedrooms opening to outside The garage is difficult to access for larger cars the pool is just a small lap pool and is in the shade some parts of the day It is good value for money clean and we would definitely stay again

This hotel was our first stop in a 4 week holiday in New Zealand. We stayed 3 nights and were quite happy with it. Our 2 bedroom apartment was on the 13 th floor. It was not exactly spacious but there was enough room for the 4 of us and it was quite modern, there were no shabby furnishings here. It was good to have a washing machine in the apartment with detergent provided (a very rare occurrence in all the apartments we stayed at). Although there was no dryer we managed by draping clothes around the bathroom, we didn't have much washing as it was early in our holiday. As someone else mentioned, there wasn't a lot of cutlery and crockery, just enough to go around for 1 meal. The apartment was very clean, and we had a good view to the Museum. The only negatives were the lack of parking and the fact that the rooms were very hot (and they were a bit noisy due to the nearby freeway, but that didn't bother us too much). Would definitely stay here again. A bonus is that it is across the road from an old cemetery where many of historic Auckland's notable people are buried ( good if you are interested in history, which we are).

We found this 2 b/r apartment good value for money. Within walking distance of the piers, Queen St and other attractions. Plenty of dining options within walking distance. Clean, affordable accommodation which met most of our needs.
2 things to mention - wifi cost us $20 for 5-6 days ($10 per GB) and we only used internet for basic needs, not sure how this was worked out?
Also, it states in the apartment guide book that ALL apartments have heater - air conditioning with remote control. This isn't the case! Only the superior rooms had this feature apparently. I found our room a little chilly in the evenings and had to use a tiny (about 30cm in length) portable oil-filled heater to heat the apartment.
But, overall a good stay.

Caros76. Thank you for your review. When you next visit us please do not hesitate to contact our reception staff as we have someone on duty 24/7 to help with any requests - like extra heating/cooling - or questions that you may have. You are correct in saying that our superior rooms all have air conditioning/heating. We do also have various internet plans and charges for WIFI.
