Good location, near downtown to waterfront bars but not in the middle of it. Bed was very comfortable, loved the espresso machine in the room and even more we loved they provided fresh milk with it, we could make our own cappuccinos. Porters and receptionists were genuine and friendly, we felt welcomed. Swimming pool is tiny. Restaurant is nice, breakfast buffet was basic, service was friendly and efficient, same for the bar, small but friendly and efficient service.
A warm welcome greeted us at this hotel. All of the staff we came across did their best to ensure we had a peasant stay. Our room was very clean and very quiet with a lovely view over the marina. We did find the hotel was struggling to cope with the number of guests the weekend we stayed. We were also disappointed to find the cafe was not open this weekend and we were not informed of this when we made our reservation. Overall a pleasant night away in auckland and an ideal situation along the watervront with easy walking distance to other venues.
