Stayed here on a business trip as it was close to the airport and just overnight due to connection. Unfortunately, even with only being there less than 12 hours, it was not great. At a very pricey $299 per night for a very "average" (and that is being generous) hotel. Firstly to my horror the old sad lifeless towels in...

This hotel is located a short shuttle bus ride from Auckland Airport, the yellow bus runs every 30 minutes or so (NZD$6 one way). The hotel and grounds are quite expansive, but in a light industrial estate so not much to see or do. From check in to room service , to room cleanliness to the bar, the staff were...

I stayed here for a business trip. Checked in & advised I didn't have my IHG number with me. Advised to get it and bring it back later as they had no access to system - um okay. Would it be better to say - we'll allocate to your booking when system is back? Had the pad Thai for dinner...

We picked the Holiday Inn for our last night in New Zealand--we were flying in from the South Island a night and leaving the next morning, so we wanted something close to the hotel and with a shuttle. First of all, the shuttle is a general hotel shuttle, not just for the Holiday Inn, and it cost 6 dollars each...

I was somewhat bemused to read the previous review as I experienced a similarly appalling encounter with the same rude and extremely arrogant staff member!

So this was my first time at this Holiday Inn. Placed there through my work and included meals. Being a 'larger' lad, I do enjoy my buffets...until now. Tried the dinner bufffet ONCE.

An unfortunate experience after having previously spent some very good times here both for work & personal travel.

We stayed here for an overnight stay after a concert. We tried to call to say that we would be late checking in (The Traffic was gridlocked), but didn't get hold of them, so we just rocked on up anyway.
