Room 13 was very spacious , close to FMG stadium as it was a 10 min walk. Bed was very warm, showers were amazing , the pressure was great. Could do with a mirror or so in the bathroom and in the room. Bed was comfy also.

We stayed here for one night so that we could go to the rugby (All Blacks v Argentina). It was ideal. We were four blokes so we had a two-room apartment and they gave us an extra put-u-up bed (we didn't want to share a double bed!!) in the lounge. We arrived just after 4pm, checked in and then nipped... More

Stayed one night and asked for a good bed and shower, which I was extremely pleased with. Bed cover was stained, entire decor needs major update. Was happy with the price though. Lots of traffic noise.

Looked at some reviews thought it was OK, no. Dirty torn curtains. Bedspread on double bed had grease (I think) stains on it. Advertised a spa and no plug. My real score is -10 never stay here again. Feels dirty?

We booked a two bedroom unit for four adults. Very, very compact unit with a false wall obviously put up to create the second bedroom. There were holes in the ceilings and walls, the unit was very dated and in need of a total overall. Part of the wall behind the toilet was removed to expose pipes. Nowhere to cook,... More
