I stayed here for just over a week on business. The hotel is very new and the rooms are very comfortable with modern of decor. If you are happy looking at aircraft at the airport, the view is fantastic. The selection on the TV was good and the Internet was fast.
Unfortunately, the place is definitely overpriced. Breakfast is NZ$32 for a pretty stock standard hot breakfast. Internet is NZ$29.95 for 24 hours which is pretty ridiculous and laundry for a standard business shirt is NZ$11.50!!
Lastly, while the staff were friendly, they often were unable to help or having to fix up their booking mistakes. Despite being told by my company of an extension to a stay, one of my colleagues kept being asked when he was going to check out. When I checked in, they said I was only booked for 2 nights despite me having booked for 8. Having said that, they fixed it very quickly once I showed proof of my booking. I also had random room service charges on my bill that weren't mine. Again it was fixed quickly though.
The place is very convenient for a short stay on the way to somewhere but I wouldn't recommend it for a stay of more than one night.
