          One of the heaters did not work! Place was uncomfortably cold. Imagine getting out of bed to visit the bathroom in a very cold room. And in the morning having to put on jackets and pants just to stay warm. It was not fun.

          You can take the train from downtown Auckland and not have to worry about driving. The hotel will arrange a shuttle from the train station. Enjoy!
