I stayed for 4 nights. Spacious room, semi modern decor, good service and great location! There's only I choice of restaurant and their menu is limited.
I would recommend this if you want to stay in the heart of Auckland!
- Free Wifi
Just stayed at this hotel and we had a wonderful experience. The front desk staff were very professional and we even received a free upgrade to a beautiful, huge 2 bedroom suite.! Wish they had free wi-fi.......that's the reason for my 4 star rating. And the wired internet was very expensive. But this hotel has a great location and beautiful views.
The only positive thing I can say about this hotel is the view. The views are great if you get a room facing the right direction and high enough up. My praise ends there.
We had booked to stay 5 nights in Nov 2011 but ended up checking out after 1 night (we would have checked out earlier if we could have found another hotel nearby that had availability). The rooms are in desperate need of renovation, so much so that the whole apartment feels dirty. In fairness to the cleaning staff I am sure they do a good job every day but none of the fixtures and fittings have been replaced in so long that the dirt is just ingrained - stains on the chairs and curtains, an overall grubby feel to the kitchen, and dirt ingrained into the tiles in the bathrom that I was reluctant to have a shower without wearing flip-flops.
The "gym and pool" are a massive disappointment. I have seen bigger baths than the swimming pool they have and the gym, serving 28 floors, with a grand total of 4 pieces of kit in it!
This hotel will have been given 5 stars because of its view and because it has put 4 old bits of gym equipment in a converted bedroom so it qualifies as having a gym. The standards of the room would not look out of place in a 2 star establishment. A refurbishment is supposed to be coming soon but they are 10 years too late.
Good location, rooms need an upgrade.., looking a bit dated
Pool very nice and view from balcony really good
But this day and age.., wifi is needed in the room and not just a network cable.... Were able to use for "free" in cafe downstairs when purchasing something
We only stayed one night after the Rugby World Cup but we were impressed with this hotel.
The staff were helpful and friendly and the suite was very clean. The location was great, just a short stroll to the harbour and shops. I would highly recommend this hotel.
After staying many times at the Grand Quay in Sydney, I expected a similar experience. Unfortunately, the hotel and rooms needs to serious renovation. The first room was unacceptable with many stains on the carpet and furniture. To their credit, they gave me a better room. I relocated my breakfast meetings as I wouldn't bring a business guest to their "buffet". All that said, it is a terrific location and if you can get a room with a terrific view.
