On first appearances this hotel seemed to have been recently refurbished as the the reception area is airy and new looking. However, this was misleading. Our room was on the small side and rather tired. More worrying was the fact that a power socket was coming away from the wall and a permanent notice announcing that we had to keep the bathroom door closed as steam sets off the fire alarm! All the electrical items in the room were overdue for testing too.
When it rained buckets appeared in all the public areas (reception, bar, restaurant)! The bar is dark and quite frankly some of the furniture was grubby.
Breakfast was not of the quality we had elsewhere in New Zealand (at comparable cost).
We had dinner in the restaurant and the food was good quality and value for money.
There is free wifi (albeit slow) and free parking. There is also a hotel cat!
