Excellent service and friendly team. Rooms are clean, modern and comfortable. Stunning views from some of the rooms. Breakfast buffet is super. A great place for business people, couples and families.

This hotel was ok for one night, rooms were nice but bathroom was extremely dated as were corridors etc. We certainly didn't receive the warm hospitality from the lady on reception as we have all over New Zealand which was disappointing. Not much more to add, but sure there's better in the area.

We spent just one night at the Amora. It is a short walk from the great Te Papa Museum with fantastic exhibits on Maori culture and a powerful exhibit on the Galipoli campaign in Turkey during World War I in which many Kiwis and Aussies gave their lives fighting against a German ally. The Hotel is immaculate. Reception was warm,...

Had a very comfortable stay here. The king bed was very comfortable and the room was exceptionally clean. The bathroom was a credit to the hotel.
