We live in the far north of New Zealand and are down in Auckland fairly regularly so have stayed in rather a lot of hotels! This is the first time I have written a review of one so it shows how much we've liked it. When we arrived, there were fire engines, police and ambulances surrounding the place and there was no way of driving in. They had stationed the concierge in an obvious spot at the road so you could ask him for help. We managed to stop and find out where we could go, he radioed another member of staff who met us at a gate and took our car and let us in. Turned out their whole electricity 'thing' for the hotel had 'exploded' so it was all a bit chaotic for them, but they dealt with us perfectly, under fairly unusual circumstances.
Check in people were nice and friendly. We were on the 19th floor over looking the city. The room was beautiful. Very tastefully decorated, lovely crisp bed linen on a superbly comfortable bed and a beautiful bathroom, incredibly well stocked minibar and great artwork on the walls. We came on the "Glamour Package" through "wotif" this is very reasonable and includes 2 free yummy cocktails from the bar. The bar area is nice and funky.
We very much enjoyed our stay so will stay here again next time.
