“good experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

Me and my Partner stayed here for 2 nights and had a lovely stay! Staff was right up to help you out , easy access to queen street and city center. Lovely food.We even asked for a early check in and we got that without any issues. Bathroom was huge as well. we had a quiet room as well.They had a special taxi service to the airport which was only $45 for which we paid $85 when we came. We would definitely stay here again upon our next visit to Auckland. Thanks heeps to staff and management for this lovely stay.

A self rated 3.5 Star hotel in the upper part of the city, not far from the infamous K Rd in Auckland.( id certainly say it was more 2 Star )
Paying what I did , my expecations were not set too high.
The King size rooms are clean with a large spacious bathroom.water pressure is far too low though on the shower, making it hard to get wet.
The room itself was an unusual shape , making it difficult to view the tv , fixed on the wall from the seat and lying on the bed.
Storage space is very poor in room offering a small wardobe
Nice big bed, crisp linen and new towels give this room a plus mark .
No air conditioning, made it impossible to sleep at night due to the heat of the summer.
Also the constant chattering and laughing of guests smoking in the street out side the hotel , didnt help the sleep process.
id like to add that i woke up with insect bites all over my body , not sure if this was a due to infestation of fleas in the room , but this was reported to management, who seemed unconcerend, and offered no recompence .
The restaraunt, has absoulotely no aptmosphere, very clinical , and the quality of breakfast ie : the Tropicana consisted of small portion of scrambled eggs, 1x hash brown , 1 x rash of bacon
and toast your self bread, very poor for $12.50
Finally there is one lift to serve the whole 80 bedroom hotel , painfully slow , and cramped when you finally get inside
Overall i doubt i will ever stay at this property again , but i suppose it has a place for the budget traveller, if you dont expect too much for your dollar

Thanks you so much for you time to write feedback. This is very important for us to improve.
Concerned departments are addressing issues raised in your feedback. TV angel is being changed for better view. Pest control contractor has assured there are no bugs and has treated
for fleas in hotel premises. Chef has been instructed to add value to the breakfast menu with
immediate effect. I am sure you will find us much improved during your next visit
