Any hotel (especially a 'luxury' boutique hotel) that charges $29 per day for internet does not deserve any rating beyond "poor"... It's ridiculous and a shameless money grab... The worst part is thier misleading adverts where they tell you they give you a free 30MB or one hour of internet, which I thought was fine, but the hour runs from the moment you log on, so you'll need to pay up for the $29 per 24hours - a bit of a scam.
Beyond that, it's a nice hotel, though not worth the $250 per night website rate... Think Hoilday Inn across the street from the beach... I paid $160 p/n via booking.com and that's about the ceiling I'd recommend (for the standard queen studio)... There's no bells and whistles to really separate it from the nicer motels you find in NZ...
The food at Salt is quite good.
