Outstanding views from the rooms, across the harbor. Lovely room, spacious and inviting. Staff were super helpful, and best of all - a lovely personal touch - we found a complimentary bottle of bubbly in our room as we were celebrating our daughter's graduation, a wonderful gesture. Would happily stay here again and recommend this hotel.

Having wanted to visit Te Papa ever since the Peter Jackson War exhibition started we finally managed to get away in April and were delighted to discover that this hotel was immediately opposite the Museum. In fact it was the perfect central location. We stayed on the club floor as this was a long needed break but I have to...

Just had one night here, but loved it. Well looked after rooms, great service, great room service. This is at a price point of where you want to stay when you want more than "just a bed" but you don't want to spend luxury money.

The hotel is very comfortable and well equipped. We had a room overlooking the waterfront, and in spite of the busy road below it was very quiet. It is in a good position for restaurants and Te Papa museum is 5 minutes walk away. What really makes this hotel is the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, everyone talks to...

My husband and I were to meet here for a weekend, involving international flights, leave from work for both of us, child and house sitting. Flights and accomm booked months in advance. Amora hotel cancelled with 2weeks notice. Stunned at the flippancy of customer relations.

Hotel staff pleasant. Huge leak in ceiling above our bathroom. Apparently a dishwasher on floor above in their club room floods over. We were given a dessert for the leak rather than a price adjustment.

Instead of going home after Cyclone Cook disrupted our holiday flights down South, I booked an "Amora Affair" package as a treat for my partner. We arrived and got parking right outside the hotel as it was a public holiday the parking was free. We were greeted by a friendly staff member who booked us in, another asking if he...
