Our experience here was mixed - some good, some not so good during our four-night stay. I'll start with the good:
- Excellent location; near downtown, the harbor district and right across from Te Papa national museum.
- Free parking and free internet.
- Close to large supermarket.
- Nicely equipped kitchen and full laundry (washer and dryer) in the room.
- Big bedroom and closets with comfy bed.
- Large bathroom.
- Weekend manager, Rhys, was very welcoming, helpful and friendly.
- Don't move any of the furniture in the lounge, not even a little, because no vacuuming has gone on there for a long time.
- No tissues were provided and no extra toilet paper provided (problem when there are no tissues). No note paper, pens or pencils.
- Coffee/tea supplies not replenished, though great that milk was initially provided in the fridge.
- Layout and furniture placement in our room (Unit A), was peculiar as the main passageway between the living area and bedroom was blocked by the desk chair if another person is sitting at the desk. Also, husband hit head on TV mounted on the wall in the bedroom near doorway.
- Our room was never serviced on one of the nights of our stay.
On a long trip, this place is nice as it's not a typical hotel room. To have a kitchen, laundry and great location (note that some rooms provide no interesting views) are all huge bonuses. It lacked a few niceties that I would have expected for $205 USD per night.
