“Great Location”
Reviewed 14 April 2010

You can't ask for a better location - right in front of the harbour with beautiful views of the ferry. Price is excellent when you think about the location - near ferry, bus and train terminal. Also 2 mins to the shopping area. I read the other reviews and I must say that I have no complaints about the state of the room I was staying - and I stayed for two weeks for business & holiday.

Any suggestiions for improvement? Well probably complimentary 1 hr per day internet access in the room instead of just 20+ mins in the lobby. Other than that I would recommend this hotel to anyone who visits auckland and I will probably stay here again the next time I come.

This hotel had a good view of the bay but the hotel itself is in dire need of refurbishment.
Chipped mugs were left out for us in the bedroom, the bath mat was old and yellowing, dirty grout around the bath tiles and a rusty cover on the tissue box. The furniture was circa 1970 and cheap 1970's at that.

Great location, very nice views over the harbour & self parking.I have only ever stayed in the suites and found them very comfortable & quiet, on the top floors.

The hotel is really run down and definitely needs immediate refurbishment. The room we stayed in was shabby and the bathroom was just awful.
The hand wash basin was broken and around the bath was a seal applied with some hair stuck in it, ouch!
Nice view from the room was obstructed by a huge white building in front of it, so the sea was only visible on the far right and left side. The windows were also very dirty.
The air-conditioning system in room wouldn’t work. Yes, you can turn it on, but it gives you semi-cold air that during the summer night with all windows closed (there is no way you can sleep with open windows in this location) makes the room quite hot.
Also, the advertised two King Beds were two Single King Beds; take this into account when booking.
The cooked breakfast was not bad and we couldn’t complain, it was just a standard buffet breakfast.
To summarise I would recommend to stay there only if you get a really good deal because the location is excellent.

We stayed two nights here prior to picking up a cruise ship which docked directly across from our window in the early morning. The hotel is ideally located. It's a bit in need of an upgrade but you can't fault it for anything else and the price compared to another hotel also directly by the cruise dock is about 1/2. If you want a comfy bed for the night, close to all the harbour amenities, with excellent helpful staff you can't go wrong here. It does get a bit noisy at weekends, and the windows are not totally soundproof, but if the price suits you and you are a light sleeper - get earplugs. It was perfect for us, and we ate there for breakfast and dinner one night also. Thank you Martin and staff for all your help making our stay enjoyable.

We needed a place cheaply for a late arrival into Auckland. Simply wanting the bed. Reception was friendly and efficient. Room was spotless but it's a bit tired. We had a view out onto the street and the double glazed windows kept out all the noise. Ultimately.. can't beat the price.

Reception also happily organised a Bungy Jump for me and gave us great advice.
