Stayed during Easter 2013 in a deluxe room on the 9th floor.

Room was a good size with balcony, separate table, good sized bench to put bags on, small but adequate cloths cabinet, 34cm flat screen tv with a few foxtel channels, and adequate bathroom with plenty of hot water with good pressure (although no exhaust fan).

Bathroom was equipped with the very basic shampoo, conditioner, bath gel, body moisturiser, soap but NO other extras like sewing kit, shaving cream, toothpaste, etc.

There was a washer/dryer in a small cabinet with one satchel of washing powder which could be useful, coffee/tea making facilities and supplies, mini kitchen with sink and various utensils.

Whatever you pay for this room be prepared to add for some basic extras - parking $20 per day (if they have space!), breakfast $27 or $20 on weekends, and wifi $15 per day - so that can add significantly to the cost. So that's and extra $62 before you start!. I'll add my usually rant about how charging for wifi is like charging for electricity and is stupid.

Bed was nice and comfy and the room was clean and not so outdated as other posts have commented on.

As others have posted, room has a strange set-up with the air conditioner. It is a separate floor mounted unit inside the room and ducted to the outside. Because of this it is a bit noisy and could be a problem if you are a light sleeper and needed some cooling or heating at night.

If you have a car then although convenient to park at the hotel, you can park on the street for free on Sundays, public holidays, and from 6pm to 8:30am each day. Saturday street parking is $1 per hour from 8:30 to 6pm. There is also a parking station down the road for $12 per day.

The hotel is located in a quiet street but quite close to Queen St where there are plenty of restaurants and just up from the Aotea Centre which could be convenient if you are coming to see a show.

Rooms at the rear overlook a small park. Check-in and out was easy although it was not very busy. I did not eat in so cannot comment on the food.

My wife and i managed to get a deal on Grabone for a night here in a spa room with a 2 course dinner for two. We arrived early and while the room was not ready, they did let us park the car in the basement garage early at no charge. the carpark is a tight fit, so if you have a big car, beware. we have a people mover and were glad the carpark at that particular time was not full.

The rooms are clean and tidy, but starting to get a little tired. They have kitchenettes so you can cook your own food in them. they also have washing machine/dryer so if you have an extended stay that would be useful. The bed is large and not split mattress, but i found it a bit soft. I would have liked to have seen some medium or large bed pillows (they were all small).

the shower was strong which i like, and the spa bath clean, although no instructions. each room has an airconditiioning unit, but it was noisy. also you could hear the next room if they have their spa bath on, but thankfully no other human noises :)

the pool area is tired, but has a nice outlook over myers park. However we did enjoy a nice reasonably priced cocktail sitting outside on the patio area.

The service was friendly and willing but far from 5 star. be aware that if you are expecting top notch experience with the service this is not he place for you, but they are trying hard.

the meals were not spectacular. more like a family restaurant quality. they did the trick, but if you are wanting a romantic or special dinner, i suggest booking a meal at a city restaurant. There wine and cocktail list was very basic. I am a caeliac so while they understood this meant no gluten, you could tell i would have to double check with each and every course.


I would have to say that if i had had to pay full price for the meals and accommodation i would have been disappointed, but with the deal i got which was 50% off the room plus the free meals, then it met the purpose well

Room Tip: rooms facing the park are nicer

Stayed here so could attend "Cantina", part of the Auckland Arts Festival. Very convenient location, clean, tidy and roomy twin hotel room. No complaints. Staff were approachable and friendly, knew what they were doing. Brief walk from hotel through Myers Park to the Aotea Centre on Queen St

Room Tip: All rooms have a balcony

The location is ok, just minutes from downtown Auckland. Nothing flash about the place but it has nice views if you are facing the park. The car park is a real squeeze so don’t try parking a larger vehicle.

The room was fine so long as you don’t want the air-conditioning unit on. The place was built without it and they have retrofitted an extremely noisy free standing unit in the room that was a real turn off when the room got hot.

Room Tip: Choose one with plently of opening windows so you don't have to turn the aircon unit on.

I stayed here for three nights while on a training course for work.

I was pleased to have a kitchenette which was a bonus and meant I could get a few groceries in and at least have breakfast in the room.

The room was comfortable with a king bed - and no split! Always good. I liked the balcony but the aircon unit sitting on the floor was so noisy, I couldn't relax and hear tv over it.

My biggest complaint was that the hotel does not offer wifi. Please...! The only internet you could access was in the lobby and they had two computer terminals down there. There's no way these days that anyone wants to do that. Most hotels offer wifi in your room at least and many free - even if it's a small amount.

Also, staffing of the reception area was light at check in and check out times.

Just a wee housekeeping note too. When cleaning the bath/shower, please look around the corner inside the bath and clean the mould off - it's not that hard to make that little effort surely? And if the hotel offers (as most do), to leave your towels for re-use then please do so. We're currently under drought conditions. I dutifully hung up my towel and bathmat in the morning to come back and find them replaced. What a waste of resources!

Overall, despite my comments on some small matters, I liked my room and the location of the hotel. Easy walking distance to some good restaurants.
