Reviewed 25 May 2011

I booked this hotel for my parents. Had a special price as they were staying more than 7 days. Also got a 1 bedroom apartment for the price of a studio.
The apartment was spacious, had a TV in the lounge but only one couch.
Room was ok, clean sheet.
Batroom clean with towels.
Location is very good if you are not planning as driving as this is located in the central city, close to everything and the sky tower.
In average good price, staff friendly but NO parking around.

Afternoon staff were rude, night staff were pleasant.

The rooms had paper thin walls and everything inside and out could be heard, including the dumpsters in the back alley cleaning up, not to mention the "neighbours" next door.

If you are self driving (outside of a mini or motorbike), take another half star off your stay, as parking was fierce and few and far between.

I think Best Western should review this one.

Overall, I had a great experience and would definitely return to the hotel.
Value for money, great location, hot showers and rooms were clean and comfortable.
The bad part was the noise from the street at ungodly hours. My room was on the first floor but I guess this is out of bounds from the hote's end.
Also, I must say that I did not feel welcome at the reception. Service was not up to standard and staffs were unfriendly and not helpful.
Having said this, I would like to compliment the manager on duty, Bruce Macpherson. He’s the only one who is friendly, sincere and helpful with the guests.

We chose this hotel for its location primarily as we wanted to have a hotel in the centre of town, near the airport bus stop and near the car rental location to pick up our car the next day. The chap on check in was a bit odd and slightly abrupt but the check out staff were very helpful and stored our luggage for us. The room was incredibly small (in spite of us apparently having an upgrade with our BW rewards card). Some new furniture had been added to the room but it was too large for the size of room and made the room feel even smaller. The net curtains were absolutely filthy but the rest of the room was reasonably clean although there was a bit of a smell in the kitchen area (where the light didn’t work). The room was very warm even though the outside temperature was quite cool. The aircon did work but was so noisy it kept us awake. The buffet breakfast was good and we managed to get a package which included it in the rate. It is not obvious but this hotel has a back door which is great for picking up your luggage if you rent a car. I wouldn’t recommend this hotel.

Obviously a Best Western Hotel is not considered a 5-star hotel, but considering we paid around $500 for a 6 night stay and were rarely in our room, this hotel was perfect! The room was clean and the location couldn't have been better! You just turn the corner down Queen street, and you are minutes to the harbor. Great restaurants and tour operators are all nearby. This hotel does charge $14/night for Internet, but you can walk down Queen Street into the Bank of New Zealand and use their computers for free! We used the Super Shuttle at the airport to get to the hotel and that service was incredible! Only $16/pp and very friendly drivers. The restaurant is only open from 6:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m., but we preferred to walk and find a new place each day. Visit "The Stables" on Elliott Street. Great little restaurants and a VERY good wine shop! Kevin knows everything there is to know about New Zealand wine!

Stayed for 3 nights, 2 on eastern side (adjacent to next door buildings) - very quiet, comfortable and clean. 3rd night on south side (facing Victoria st) very noisy, traffic drone all night and lift noise in main bedroom. Some parking spaces are positioned such that very difficult to get into neatly (spaces 1a and 1b - neither of them should be provided as parking spaces). Otherwise good service and pleasant stay. Onsite restaurant only available for breakfast.
