We had a great stay here. The hotel was conveniently located for Central Auckland. We used the free bikes twice and it was easy to get them both times. Our group had four rooms. The hotel arranged our rooms so that we were all together. Great spot to stay and nice to be able to self-cater.

Clean hotel, good location, once my I phone got me there. Parking a bit of a gamble, internet pretty lousy. Apart from that, OK. I didn't use the restaurant, quite pricey, and lots of other alternatives nearby.

Bed was really uncomfortable, it was supposed to be a queen bed and they were two singles put together. I had back pain the next day. The bathroom was unclean. There was someones hair left in the bed. The free wifi is only 500mb per day. Our room was in the first floor and we had to carry our suitcases...

Stayed one night. In the middle of the city close to everything. Great size room with the best 'kitchenette' I've seen. Large bathroom. Parking available at a reasonable rate. Big screen tv and a great price.

The bottom floor is a general area with a nicely equipped kitchen. An eating area , pool table, and sofas to watch TV from....

I stay at this hotel on a pretty regular basis as a business traveler. The staff are friendly and helpful and I have stayed in a range of rooms in both the old and new part of the hotel. The older room was quite small but very comfortable. I would love the addition of earl grey tea and a herbal...

We were very pleased with our stay at the hotel. The staff was very helpful and friendly. My only complaint was that there were overhead lights in the room. A table lamp would have been nice. Close to the Sky Tower and other venues. I would stay here again.

Nice and central with amenable staff. Room was clean and of a good size. The rooms do not have climate control so get very hot at night unless you have the noisy portable air conditioning unit on. There were not any little perks like a good array of tea flavours (only black tea available). Also the hotel book says that...
