We stayed two night having got off a long haul flight. Room was comfortable and reasonably equipped. Hotel facilities (bar/restaurant/coffee shop etc), while not made use of looked good quality. Location is fantastic for seeing what you want to see of Auckland.

This hotel has the very best staff, who are let down by a slightly aging building. Whilst the reception and restaurant seem new the rooms are a little tired with repairs needed to; the safe (constant locking problem), extractor fan in bathroom not working, bathroom sink and door needing repair. It must be pointed out that these "problems" were only...

We stayed here two nights after completing a cruise. Close to cruise terminal, although more of a taxi ride (9$) than a walk. Helpful reception staff and got a comfortable room on the 8th floor. Buffet breakfast was reasonable but the food could have been hotter. Free WiFi was very welcome. Good location for main shops and harbour restaurants.

The location of this hotel is excellent and one of the reasons that we choose this property. We were able to walk everywhere we needed within 10-15 minutes.

We stayed at this hotel when travelling with GoAhead tours. It was in a good location and the rooms were excellent as was the staff. Although we had good food at the hotel you had to watch where you sat as I found there were bugs on some of the tables, likely because the place mats were put down before...

Good hotel. Three of us stayed in one room so it was a little cramped but the facilities were excellent, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was great with wide choice including a chocolate fountain and all delicious. I would recommend this hotel for a short city break. Within easy walking distance of all the major attractions.
