Great hotel in Auckland, mainly due to location/proximity in town and the double spa bath offering (which is fantastic and RARE) and always experience friendly check in. However, I am disappointed that in the five or so years we have been going there (previously The Duxton), the King spa rooms have never been made over.
The King Spa rooms are very tired looking which is a bit disappointing as other standard non spa rooms are gorgeous. You pay a premium to have that bath, sure, but I would have thought the premium price was worthy of a modernised room particulary when these rooms are used for romantic packages. Was also disappointed to find they still charge $20 EXTRA for parking your car!
On our recent visit (25th), the freestanding air conditioner was broken and we were met with a "sorry" response from the rude check out woman (such a shame as the check in man who is always there is always so friendly) but no one showed to fix it. The room furniture was very shabby and the shower curtain around the bath had not been cleaned. Clearly the person prior had somehow managed to overflow the bath and there was water damage to the carpet right by the bed which was still wet. The toiletries in such an intended romance/spa room were stock standard motel cheap. A shame as we have had Molten Brown and NZ organic ones in the past which made the stay special.
We will go back there as the spa is great but I hope they renovate the room.
