The Hotel is located in Federal Street in Auckland, right next to the Casino. The check in is swift and friendly, the rooms are acceptable, however pricy like everything else in New Zealand is.

Most annoying is the trend in newer hotels to put a window between the bath and bedrooms. Here the window was translucent and partially covered by a louvre. If someone used the bathroom during the night the...

We choose to stay here as a night away in our own home city, so we were looking for a great central location, lots of food and drink options nearby, access to the spa, and a luxurious experience. The hotel has a lovely ambience, although not a supremely luxurious space, everything is clean and well appointed. Staff were always pleased...
