We stayed for 4 nights here in February and absolutely loved this hotel. The decor is quirky - a brilliant and quite unique mix of different styles and eras which works perfectly. Our room was spacious and bright and and I would dearly have loved to have been able to take home the great white wrap-round leather chair in the corner. The bed was huge and very comfortable and the bathroom amazing. Breakfast was included, which was a bonus. We specially appreciated the evening drinks hour for guests in the library which enabled us to mix with other guests and swap travellers tales. The staff were charming and very helpful. They managed to get us a reservation for The French Cafe on our first night in Auckland - an experience not to be missed.
We were there on Valentine's night and booked for their special Valentine dinner. It was excellent with live music in the background.
The hotel is in a great location only 5/10 minutes walk from the waterfront and shops and other attractions such as the Auckland Tower.
It is no surprise that this is the Trip Adisor No 1 hotel in Auckland. It is a boutique hotel in the true sense and a million miles from the standard big chain offerings. If we return to Auckland we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. It was such a great start to our stay in New Zealand and set the tone for the rest of our trip.
