We stayed 3 nights mid October and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel which is in a very good location to access the various attractions in the Auckland CBD. Our apartment was very clean and comfortable and easily enough space for us with the kitchenette very well presented. We utilized the kitchenette for breakfast every morning and also lunch and dinner. It was nice to enjoy the comforts of home eating particularly breakfast.
Our bed was extremely comfortable and we enjoyed a very good night's sleep.We were on the 16th floor at the back of building and although no great views from the balcony as such, it was definitely quiet and relaxing for us.The hotel reception staff were all friendly and always assisted us with any queries and in fact gave us some great advice on a couple of instances which made out daily travels much more enjoyable and stress free.
The hotel is within very easy flat walking distance to the Viaduct Harbor and its many cafes and restaurants. It is also similar distance to Queen Street and surrounds with the various retail outlets and the many lovely cafes and eateries that are on offer around the CBD including Vulcan Lane. We enjoyed a lovely across-harbor ferry trip to Devonport which I would recommend and also enjoyed a ferry trip and walk at Mount Rangitoto. From the hotel it is also comfortable walking to the Auckland Tower and Mt Albert Gardens.
If you catch the airport shuttle into the CBD stay until the last stop which is at the Old Ferry Building and it is then a comfortable walk to the hotel.
