My wife and I stayed for two nights as part of a tour of NZ - the package booked the hotels for us. We were very happy with this place. It's a modern city centre hotel very conveniently located.
We didn't use the restaurant because we went out and found places very near at hand for breakfast and dinner. We ate at the Midnight Express Turkish restaurant just down the street - never eaten turkish before: all excellent.
Its location is very good with an easy walk to shopping and attractions.
The room was very large, very nicely equipped and decorated, good view over city - with an enormous bed. It must have been 7 foot across. The room was exceptionally bright and airy. Everything was very clean and fresh.
Bathroom was very nice in particular - very nice shower. Loo very pwerful too.!
Air con quiet and efficient.
Downsides - you only got 30 mins of free wifi in the lobby. Having just spent two weeks in the Philippines with free wifi everywhere, this was a disappointment.
And the other - that was the clock. It was very complex - clock, alarm, radio and CD player but no instructions on how to operate it. But the display was so bright that it lit up the room at night - wwe were making shadow animals on the ceiling!! In the end I think we either unplugged it or turned it face down: made us laugh though.
A good start to our NZ experience. No real complaints and lots of positives.
