“Great location, friendly staff”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

Staff knowledgable but there was nothing on website about $20 valet parking charge per night. Otherwise clean, tidy and great location. Would stay again. Centre Place across the road. Museum down the road and worth a visit.

A very nice hotel that either is new or recently remodeled. A typical Ibis style room that was very clean. The padded bench is okay for a short sit, the chair was a bit more comfortable but they are the only negatives. We ended up sitting on the bed with pillows behind our back. The supply of coffee, tea and hot chocolate was more than adequate. Did find as in all of New Zealand that breakfast and supper were a bit more than I wanted to pay. Luckily, there was a shopping mall within walking distance and we were able to pick up something there for considerably less. Just out the door and around the corner are stairs leading to a river walkway that was very enjoyable. We walked all the way to the Botanic Gardens, but opted for the bus back as it was a bit too far to go . The car rental where we picked up a car to travel to Rotorua was also within walking distance of the hotel so all in all a very convenient location. We returned for another stay after Rotorua to continue on by train to Wellington.

Stayed here for 1 night! Great service although not having a credit card is a pain :(. Very clean rooms, very basic but great for only 1 night. Such an awesome location especially for shopping - only pay $20 for valet parking and your sorted for the whole time your their but its an easy walk into centre place and all the main street restaraunts.

Room Tip: Not sure. You can get joining rooms if you wish!

This is a lovely hotel in a good location. Stayed for business for one night. Check in was efficient, room is lovely although I would have appreciated a bit more drawer and closet space. Very clean. Nicely appointed and well kept. Located along the river with a beautiful walkway. Cost for breakfast is a bit steep. Limited free wifi available in the lobby - but it wasn't very reliable.

My first room had very noisy air conditioning. I was moved promptly and helpfully to a new quieter room. The staff were happy to assist with my many questions. The dinner was good but rather expensive.
