Hotel is a single-level motel style setup and is a little bit out of the town. Walk to town took about 15 minutes.

Room was very spacious and comfortable as was the bathroom. Bedroom window opened directly onto car spot which meant curtains had to be completely closed for privacy from other patrons and hotel staff walking past. However despite this we didn't experience any privacy issues because of this.

Hotel fitness room was ok, the restaurant was pleasant if not a little disorganised. Reception staff were ok. Complex felt relaxed and extra services like free inroom movies (which unfortunately we didn't utilise) were an added bonus.

We enjoyed our stay at the Pavilions and would recommend it if you're happy to be on the outskirts of town.

If you must stay there when it's cold plan on a room with access from an interior hallway. The 2 bedroom we stayed in had exterior access. The door offered no real barrier from the cold and all there really was as a visual barrier to the door and the cold was a "pull curtain". There was one small wall mounted heater in the lounge or main room area. The bedrooms never warmed up. We complained and received several space heaters. Those may have been adequate other than the fact that when plugged in and turned on they tripped the breaker. The next option was a upgraded heater, but it took several hours to heat up and never adequately heated up all the rooms. The manager on duty that night was dismissive of our complaints. We ended up checking out the next morning for a hotel right off Latimer square. If you are planning a summer stay then one could consider this location as our main issue was with the heat, but I would ensure you are getting a good price. Do not overpay if you do decide to stay there.

Service - Was ok. Staff were friendly but not overly interested.

Room - The room was ok, nothing special but for the price you can't expect too much. It did it's job of providing a place to sleep for the night.

Location - Great location if you have a car. About 5mins drive into the centre of the city. Really easy to get to and from.

Amenities - Free wireless internet and parking.

Liked:
Best - The location and price
Least - The dated furniture

We stayed 2 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment and straight up they upgraded us to a larger room as we were a group of 4, so happy about that.
Located about a 10 - 15 walk into the city centre which wasn't an issue, we had a great walk in and also around the nearby park.
Carlton Hotel is just across the road and great for a beer and good meal.
We weren't made aware of the free pick up from the airport which would have been nice but apart from that have no complaints. Great value.

Friendly staff, good, clean, well maintained room. Good breakfast. Just what we needed for our first night in New Zealand. Decor a bit simple but then we wanted to see New Zealand not the inside of a hotel room so it didn't bother us. The first things I mentioned were much more important!

We had a very enjoyable stay, the room was warmed for our late evening arrival and very cozy. Handy to city center. We were not aware the All Blacks v Australia (Tri Nations) at time of booking. So the town was buzing.

We were very happy with the hospitality of the family run Pavilions Hotel.My partner & I had so much fun with management & even had a karoke night after the rugby.The hotel is perfectly situated within walking distance to Resturants & Cathedrel Square.The room we had was very nice although the bathroom was a little small and we couldn't get over the fact that they had no exhaust fan in there nevertheless we enjoyed our stay of 5 nights.Plenty of parking and very comfortable. I have no problem recommending this hotel to my friends.Debbie & Ryan .... FANTASTIC & thankyou.
