Stayed in Room 1801, with great harbour views. Room was located next to office building, so any relaxing on the sofa, with the curtains open, could result in you being viewed by bored staff at the ASB Tower next door.
Room was big, but cost $NZD240 a night, for 2 nights.
Initial booking was a bit rough, with booking details not e-mailed, as requested. A follow up from me two days later resulted in my message being left on voicemail, and an e-mail reply a minute later - with no covering note explaining the delay in sending my booking details.
Shower in bathroom was dirty - was cleaned on requested, but difficult to notice much difference, with the soap scum still remaining on the shower glass.
Cream-coloured carpet was dirty, with nail polish spills.
Checkout was challenging, as dispute over bar tab, and a challenge to pay by cash rather than credit card.
$5 flat white coffee in foyer was far too hot, used nasty beans, and served in too large a cup - terrible waste of the beautiful La Marzocco coffee machine being used so poorly.
Having said the above, I appreciated the follow up e-mail on my stay, the next day.
I would stay again, as a great view, and central location.More
