          Great location overlooking Auckland city. Great food although we had made a booking for a specific table with a view and when we arrived another couple were seated there, the staff wouldn't move them. Very disappointing to say the least.More

          Only visited the location. Do not know what internal travel arrangements the hotel has. Suggest you contact the hotel directly. Could be well worth your while..
          As there is no a.c., would it be uncomfortable during the end of October?
