This hotel has really nice rooms there's a kitchen area with a mini bar and lots of space for your things there was one issue and that was that there is no air-conditioning the climate is very comfortable most of the time but the room can get a little stuffy

Stayed here for one night as part of a tour of NZ. Very clean, well appointed rooms and public areas. Excellent WiFi. Centrally located property easy walks to all major attractions. Don't bother with the Cadbury tour it's useless, just use the money to buy chocolate! Only downside at the hotel was severe congestion at checkout time, need more receptionists...

You cannot fault the location in the heart of the central city Rooms are well appointed and appear recently refurbished. Car parking is valet-only. And costs an extra $13 per day. Tea and coffee making facilities are provided along with the usual over-priced mini bar
