This is a modernistic, well maintained boutique style hotel about ten minutes walk from the harbour front and restaurants. Our room was reasonably sized and comfortable, with a big bed, but sadly with a view to abandoned shops and offices just over the road.
The welcome was friendly and the staff were helpful. The hotel is small enough not to feel busy and to allow personal attention. Guests are invited for complimentary pre-dinner drinks in a private library each evening (whether eating in the hotel or not).
Our chip and pin credit card was rejected at check in. In fact this was simply reception staff error, but it caused us some concern on our first day in NZ until we successfully used it in a harbour front restaurant.
The continental breakfast included in our rate was good quality, but rather limited in choice. There is no on-site parking, other than for 5 minutes on the street for loading.
Overall this is an acceptable hotel for a couple of days in Auckland.
