Reviewed 13 December 2013

Spent there three night on my trip to NZ. Nice updated room, just the bathroom was rather old-fashioned. But very comfortably beds. Stunning views of downtown Auckland (I had room 509). Also rather nice was the restaurant. Better pastas than in a "real" italian restaurant in Parnell. Would stay there also on another trip to Auckland.

We have stayed in this hotel before and we enjoyed it every time. The motel side is bit dated but very clean and tidy. The hotel side has amazing views and also very spacious. Bed is comfortable. The hotel and motel is fully equipped with a kitchenette and has a microwave as well.
Parking could be a problem if you arrived late at night. We parked on the road a few times - not an issue unless it rains.
There is a restaurant attached to this hotel but we did not eat there. Hotel is close to Parnell Road and there are many great restaurants on there.

Room Tip: Pay extra to have room with a view to city lights - it is simply magical

"Wow, what a view!" We stayed two nights and were happy with the location. We did take the bus back to the hotel after doing the Lonely Planet Walking Tour but walked everywhere else. The location is very near the Auckland Rose Garden (2 blocks), Trinity Cathedral and the Auckland Domain/Auckland Museum. Discovered the restaurant the second day. We had three meals there...very good. I should have booked a room for our return to Auckland but wasn't sure we would stay the night before we flew back. When I later tried, they were booked. We stayed down the street but ate at the Quality Parnell Restaurant. All the staff were nice and very helpful.

Room Tip: Room with a water view is nice and that building has an elevator.

This is an older building and in places (if you look for it) it shows. However the staff are extremely helpful, it is close to the Parnell shopping district and about a 40 minute walk to the center of the city. Most of Auckland is either uphill or downhill and if walking is not your thing take a cab. There is a restaurant on site with a bar but if you want variety then Parnell village is nearby.
It is quiet and comfortable with ample parking if you have a hire car. A relaxing place with great views.
I think the staff make this hotel and would definitely stay here again when in Auckland.

Room Tip: Fourth and fifth floors have the best city views.

We stayed for 4 days and our daughter and her family for 7 days.
Everything was just great. We were on the 4th floor great view all the way from the city (just perfect at Night) to over the harbour to Rangiototo nice and quiet and just so suitable. Close to everything, Mission Bay, Kelly Taltons, eateries in Parnell, shopping in NewMarket.
Very helpful staff, great value and great for our families. Alhough we were on different floors even after booking over 6months before not a hassle transporting wee people between the floor staff always smiling and helpful. Hawve been busy singing your praises

Room Tip: Try and get on the 4th floor great views

We booked one of the self contained rooms with great views over the harbor from the balcony. Great neighborhood not to far from city center. Near Auckland Domains and salt water bath. Very clean and well functioning rooms. This is a good choice for families when staying in Auckland.

We stayed one night in two 2 bedroom apartments. However they were on opposite side on the building but on the same floor. The fourth floor had good views of the city especially room 416.
Beds were big , pillows plentiful , heater available. Showers were great with plenty of hot water. However one has to step into a tub, maybe a little bit of a problem for older folks.
The kitchen was smallish with microwave ,stove ,adequate for simple cooking. No dishwasher available though. Some apartments has washer and dryer (room 401) but others have to do the laundry in the common laundry room on the ground level at $3 each for washing and drying.Two small cartons of milk were provided in the fridge. Altogether a very clean spacious apartment just refurbished last year according to reception.

Location wise , you cannot fault it. It is in a quiet neighbourhood yet close enough to the shopping malls and plenty of eateries about 10 minutes walk, I would say. It is also about 10 minute drive to the skycity casino.

Internet is not free but we signed up as members and received 2GB free.

All in all , a value for money stay . Would stay here again .
