It has plenty of power points -yes, but i`m talking about where you plug your appliances in. Apart from this small plus, -we were lured here by the AA advertising travel guide book as to where to stay in New zealand. The cover photo of the hotel was pleasant-the desciption-enticing. The price was wonderful (59 to 79 dollars) and even accounting for an increase in not quite of-fpeak rate,it should have been reasonable.
However-we endevoured to find the place in town -(never easy when getting into CBD`s which i think they rely on)-We managed to fine queen street;once here, being tired after our travels we accepted the 20 dollar increase in tariff as we had no energy to argue.Ah, we were told the best rooms go to internet bookings-really,wow-ok, then don`t advertise any other way........We hauled our luggage up to the lift-which only went to the 2nd floor,at which time we had to transfer to another lift to get to the third floor-this is normal.
The room:-tiny-(no aircon)-a view of a courtyard(unlike what the advert promised)-single pillows on the bed-shower had to be discovered, and 10 useless channels on TV-Not even news). The noise i wont even mention from the hallways and adjacent rooms.
As for a not-smoking room-why the cigarette burns everywhere.
I`m not happy with this hotel. I will drink a half bottle of Glenfiddich to get myself to sleep and eject myself as soon as possible.(The sparrows won`t even be farting)
