Accommodation was cheap and you get what you pay for. We only stayed 2 nights so it wasn't too bad and we knew we wouldn't be in there much but I wouldn't stay there again if it was for a longer period. Needs better car parking and elevators were very slow. Had to keep windows closed at night to keep...

Stayed for 1 night, 2 adults and 3 children. No t.v in 3bedroom apartment. Cheapest hotel available. Very average looking rooms nothing flash, but price reflects that. I left my ring behind and the cleaners were honest enough to hand it in to reception. Im very greatful for that. I would advise for better parking. Also for the receptionist to...

20 mins walk from town centre, these rooms are well appointed with two rooms each with a double bed and bathroom and a shared kitchen. They are cheap: we paid £78 for two nights, not bad for New Zealand's biggest city. If you are only staying 2 or 3 nights, you could do a lot worse for significantly more money

I stayed at this place for 5 days and I am satisfied with the quality of it. It costs $NZ80 per twin room/ per night (private bathroom and kitchen). So it is just $40 per person and you have private space after a long day trip. Although the building is old but it does not matter. This place is close...

Chose this place so we could spend more money on other things. It was so cheap compared to anything else. We were hardly at the room as busy sightseeing and walking town. Pretty handy location just a wee walk to top end of Queen St. Bed comfy. Bit tired and a little more attention to cleaning would have made it...

This has to be one of the worst hotel rooms, if you can call it that!, we have ever stayed in. The room itself left a lot to be desired, the bed we might as well have been sleeping on concrete, the noise from the motorway made sleeping impossible. The apartment we booked was two bedroom and we ended up...

Apartment has two bedrooms with good size to fit a family 4 or 5. While the bathroom and kitchen are not in clean condition. Some teaspoon are not even cleaned. Bedding seem to be dirty as well. No wifi available for short stay customers.

After staying at this place for almost a month, I can say don't bother!. Staff are Asian and only one nice the receptionist!. The rest are horrible and stuck up even after paying good money!. Also, there where wonderful cleaners from the start. Towards my end of my stay in a 2bedroom apt, the cleaning staff where changed to Indians!....
