This place has not been touched for 30 years. It is dated, old, uncomfortable (Ironic really given the name), and over priced. I stayed in a "Corporate Studio" and frankly the room was worse than many camp ground facilities I have stayed in. This facility typifies the type of hotel that is happy to drag money out of its customers and invest none of it back into the business. For the Money there are many more facilities in Whangarei and I would highly recommend that you stay elsewhere. Dont waste your money here - and if you are considering staying here for the World Cup, please don't. If you have already paid or booked, be aware that this is not typical of a good hotel in NZ.
