“Excellent place to stay for those on budget”
Reviewed July 8, 2006

Stayed here in June 2006. Location is as good as you can get being right in the middle of the CDB and only minutes walk to the waterfront.

Our one-bedroom apartment (only cost NZ$10 more than a studio) was well-equipped with washing machine, stove, fridge, microwave, etc. More importantly, the apartment was very clean and, as a bonus, was also attactive.

Parking was somewhat inconvenient. If your room rate includes parking, please ensure that you know what you are paying for. Our room rate, which includes parking, does not allow for in and out privilages which mean that we have to incur additional parking charges during the day when we use the car. Parking is also inconvenient as it is located in a parkade that is not attached to the hotel and is located about one to two hundred metres from it.

As this is a "heritage building", the apartment sound -proofing is not that good and some of you may be affected by the street noices = sirens, cars, etc.

We stayed in these apartments in March 2006. First impression was not good. We arrived on international flight at 7pm and found hotel reception locked. Nearby businesses were no help in answering our queries. A short time later a staff menber arrived, she had been away for 15 mins. I suggested that if reception was to be unattended a notice to that effect should be displayed, with an approx time return. At least then we would have known what was what. Apartment was spacious with all amenities. The bedroom we had and I suspect most of them, was on the inside of the building, and hence no windows, a negative for us. Our first night a Friday, was so noisy from outside sirens, hoons, yelling etc, Auckland city not the place to be on a weekend we found as Sat was similar. We did not feel particulary safe walking. The premises and rooms were clean, and the outside problems are certainly not the apartments fault. Would not recommend though for children, and care should be taken at weekends.

Stayed in a studio apartment and was very impressed by the facilities and decor with beautiful heritage features, high ceilings, and very comfy sofa. A nice alternative to your usual CBD hotels. Fully equipped kitchen right down to a bottle opener and spare bin bags, and a massive fridge. Ideal for self-catering on a weekend stay. There is a supermarket within 20 mins walk to stock up. Great shower rooms, sky TV, and internet connection in rooms for laptops.

There is a little heater and fans provided but no central heating or air con.

Only a couple of negatives - one rather rude receptionist (but was countered by very helpful colleague) and on a Friday night, was very noisy - music blaring and car alarms. The original windows are charming but not very sound proof. Perhaps not one for young children at weekends!

Stayed here for two nights in March 2006. Found hotel quite easily as is on the corner of Wellesley St (well signposted off highway)and Elliott St.

Entrance literally on the corner of the block and reception up a flight of stairs. First impressions were a very nicely furnished hotel. Receptionist very friendly, too.

Apartment was unbelievable. For the rate we paid (£39 per night via wotif.com), I would never have expected such facilities. Apartment with full kitchen facilities (down to cheese grater!) and adjoining living area with leather sofa and TV & stereo. Separate bedroom with loads of storage space and safe, and separate bathroom with a washing machine and tumble dryer in it! All tastefully decorated.

Location brilliant too. A short walk to shops and to ferry building (15min) for tourist bus tours.

I would recommend this accommodation to anyone travelling to Auckland.

Rooms were fine and well furnished and clean. But had really bad expereince in dealing with the general manager (on the phone in the hotel) we had booked two rooms (two families with children) and one of the bunk beds had no safety bar on the top (it had been taken off) the one in our room was ok. Our friends had two small children and were worried about one of them falling out. We asked if bar could be put back on and were told no, asked if they could change rooms and again no, manager was very rude to us on the phone and them, and wouldn't even see us. Quite took us all by suprise I haven't encountered anyone as rude, unhelpfull, uncommunicatative as that working in a hotel ever, left us all very shocked and annoyed, reception staff were very good and very apologetic but were unable to do anything.
