Stayed one night while in on business in Auckland. Check in was great. The women who was on reception was outstanding! Her attention to detail, service standards and ability to manage multiple people at once was outstanding. Ive stayed in 5 star hotels in large cities where the front desk staff weren't that good!
Check in was fast and effcient hower no bell hop to take bags up which was difficult. Normally this isnt a problem but as I had a car and the parking to the rear of the hotel was full I had to 'double park' in driveway next to hotel to check in and unload. Then drive to a Wilson public car park up the road (approx 80m) and then return to take my bags to the room.
Wasnt to happy about this, as my bags were left in reception and additionally I was charged by the hotel for a public car park that I had to walk up the road to !
The room was excellent however, I was on top floor overlooking the harbour and port of Auckland. Great balcony and view. Room was large, good size living room, bedroom and second room with fold out couch. Room would have sleep 4 and for the price / location I dont think you'll find better in CBD Auckland. Big soft bed, tidy and clean room. The room had a kitchen and therefore I was able to drive to the local supermarket (approx 2mins by car) and cook myself a home cook dinner. As all utensils / pots / pans etc are all available.
Even though there was a linkin park concert on the night of my stay the hotel was quiet and the concert attending patrons were very well managed.
Will stay again / recommend.
