Booked a 2 bedroom apartment for the night before our cruise. Payed $380 for it which doesn't include a carpark. Wouldn't pay more then that though as it does need a bit of a tidy up. Room was clean bt not much of a view even though i did request a higher floor. Only get 1 room key but they...

If I could put a minus one on this place I would. The pictures might look well but the hotel isn't. If there was 18 inches between the wall and the beds I would be surprised. The closets had radiator type heaters being stored and we only had room for our back packs. There was no air conditioning, and you...

Definitely not one for families. I think I should have had a choice in deciding if my kids should walk back and forth past the very obvious gentlemen's club, with huge pictures, directly opposite. I'm all for boobs but did not want to have the conversation as that being a career option with my 8 and 10 year old. So...

Booked through another site and later read the Tripadvisor reviews with increasing trepidation. Asked to view the room (21h) before checking in. Registration desk was polite and courteous. Rooms were just fine. clean, well laid out, and well appointed with great views.

We stayed for 3 nights prior to our cruise. On the plus side, the Oaks is very well located to the waterfront and downtown. And we had wonderful views over the water from the 36th Floor. On the downside, the reception staff were unhelpful. And all of our contact details on arrival were wrong. Wrong address, wrong phone number and...

What a terrible experience - city was crazy busy so work had to pay over $400 per night and l have stayed in better backpackers. Room was digusting - dirty, sticky, stains on couch, floors and walls. No aircon, soft beds. Owners need to either spend some money or knock it down and start again. Never again !

Check in was a major problem as 2 guests had the same name but they were only expecting 1 person and we had a 45 minute delay as rooms were juggled about to accommodate us.We were offered a late checkout but as we were leaving at 5 am for an early flight not a lot of use to us. The...

We spent two nights here at the beginning of our road trip around New Zealand. Didn't look bad from the outside and the location was great - ideal for city and waterfront. However - the room was very tatty and in serious need of a facelift. The bathroom had certainly seen better days. Very disappointed overall. Didn't really have much...

First the good, location and that's about it. Bads very very tired apartment, marks all over walls, grubby bathroom with mouldy grout in shower, had a 2 bedroom apartment, smaller bed was reasonable but larger bed in smaller room was pretty awful, no bed side tables or light, holes in bed head were they had been. Would probably stay again...

First night of our NZ trip. Booking.com indicated 4+ stars!! 'De-luxe' studio on 5th floor - stuffy room with no air conditioning and view out over a building site. Convenient for the Ferry Port and shops but in a rather sleazy area. Room adequately equipped but mattress soft, generally 'tired' look and access along very narrow corridors. Staff pleasant, generally...
