We stayed here for 2 nights before joining a cruise ship. It is not in the downtown area but rather in the pleasant leafy suburb of Parnell, yet within walking distance of the city if you like walking. It is also close to the Domain and the Auckland Museum, and Parnell Road has interesting little shops and cafes.
The staff were very pleasant and helpful...especially the restaurant manager who ran up the stairs with our 2 very heavy suitcases when we arrived.
We had dinner at the hotel's restaurant both nights and breakfast in the morning. The food was much better than i would have expected for a medium price hotel and I would certainly recommend you try it...even if you are not staying here.
We had booked into a lower price room in the older motel section but if we ever get there again, I think I would choose to stay in the newer hotel block where the rooms on the upper floors have views of the city and harbour.
