Perfect for what we wanted, loved the central location. Staff all surfer polite and helpful. Room was good and only suggestion for future maybe upgrade window to double glaze to reduce noise off Lambton Quay.

Customer service excellent. Parking was awkward but we managed (with a van). Situated in a great central spot. We stayed with friends in a 2 bdrm unit which was nice, however the rooms are starting to get a little dated. We would stay here again at the right price.

Great location and lovely attentive staff, but very tired and dated room. We had a 2 room apartment on the 7 th floor which was while a bit oddly shaped, comfortable and spacious, with a large balcony, dining area and sofa, very comfortable beds and relatively quiet. I have given an average rating because while we paid good money for...

The rooms are comfortable and spacious - I love having a full-size dining table on...

This hotel is very well located centrally and is quite nice. It is not a five star hotel but is certainly excellent and the service is beyond reproach. Any and every query we had was dealt with promptly and effectively. Top marks.
