“Excellent hotel for sightseeing”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

Arrived on a two day trip to get there at 7AM in the morning. We planned to drop off our luggage and go sightseeing for a while but our room was available. Desk staff was very helpful when anything was needed. Very professional staff.

Excellent location for sightseeing, shopping, restaurants, the ferries. Although I would avoid the Italian restaurant a few doors away.....got the most expensive smallest pizza ever.....and it tasted like it was precooked and frozen.

We stayed 1 night, went elsewhere then came back another night (prebooked). Accused by staff for damage which was preexisting in the room. Dirty rooms, kitchen appliances did not work, noisy. Staff were courteous but unhelpful. 2 stars given: 1 for laundry facility in-room; 1 for functioning wifi ($10/24hrs). We won't be back and won't be recommending.

The best part of this hotel has to be the location. It is directly in the city centre and has a car park. It's across the road from Sky City two doors from a supermarket. The hotel itself was good value, we had a twin room with private bathroom and kitchenette. Although the room was quite small it was adequate for the period of time you you likely to stay in it. The car park was difficult to find but staff directed us. Hotel staff were helpful and friendly. Wifi was reasonably priced and fast. We had breakfast in the hotel one day and it was pretty average. Overall, the hotel is a little tired and could use updating but good value of money considering the location.

We stayed on a Friday night it was very tidy and clean with a good view of the Sky Tower and only problem was that we could hear night club music all night even with the widows closed lucky we were tired. Nice basic breakfast with staff being helpful and friendly, found it hard to find parking when we went to book in best not to stay in central Auckland with a vehicle

Can't ask for a more central location than this for the price. Eith a supermarket no more than 50m down the road and the harbour a short walk away, you can head out in any direction. We had a one bedroom family room that was very spacious. If driving, be sure to pre-book one of their limited parking spaces prior to arrival (daily parking fee involved). Clean and uncomplicated with no mini bar to tempt the kids.

The hotel has the best possible location right across the Skytower and right next to the main Queen Street. It's very comfortable and clean for a good value.The staff was very helpful and when we arrived very early in the morning,they helped us a lot with an early check in already at 8 am without any extra charge! Just one thing we missed and it was free wifi. They should provide it.You have only 30 minutes free per day per one device for one room.
There's a great super shuttle cheap service to the airport. And I recommend you to take this opportunity just cross the street, make a few steps and do the Skyjump from Skytower. It was an amazing experience.

Good location central to main mall in town. Short walk to marina area. Handy to grocery store and a couple of great restaurants just a few steps away from entrance. Reception service average. Free wifi only in foyer. Room wifi a fee charged.
