This could a really great hotel....but right now there are a lot of details that need to be resolved....so it is kind of average.
Awesome views over the yachts, bay, shipping activity & Port Nicholson Yacht Club across the street....walking distance to the CBD. Direct access to the waterfront & all it has to offer, including a great farmers market on Sunday just a few 100 meters away.
The rooms are not that big, but more than adequate & despite the proximity to the road, very quiet.
The internet is a rip off at $20+ a day.....time NZ hotels joined the real work in this regard.
Our breakfast was included, & again very good but not outstanding.
Front office staff were happy enough but need to loosen up a bit.......when i was shocked to be asked to pay more $ to stay beyond the 'standard' 10am check out, there was no apparent flexibility (until i asked for the manager, who called soon after & was extremely helpful, thoughtful & considerate)
The big test is 'would i stay again' & i certainly would as it is excellent value & I'm hopeful they will work on the detail.
