We stayed here for 2 nights in March 2009 during our visit to New Zealand. The apartment was large and spacious and the washing machine was a huge bonus! It was very clean and well equipped. As with most places in New Zealand there is no air conditioning, however there are large windows/doors and fans are provided in each room.
The immediate area isn't great with views of dirty apartment blocks, however it is in an excellent location to get to the main sights. It's only a 5 minute walk from the Skytower and 10 minute walk from the bars and restaurants at the harbour. The closeness of the motorway is also an added bonus.
Parking is in a secure underground car park however, there is an extra charge for this.
My only criticism of this apartment is that on arrival we were given an apartment with two double beds despite specifically asking for 1 double bed and 2 single beds. When I queried this I was told they weren't informed about our request so there was nothing they could do. I looked at their printout of our booking and pointed out the request clearly written in the notes section. As soon as they realised it was their mistake and not ours, they were far more helpful and housekeeping were asked to change the room. If you require a specific bedding configuration I would recommend ensuring you add this onto your booking request and book direct through the Quest website.
Other than this initial mix up reception were very helpful and gave us lots of advice about where to go and what to do.
