An overnight stay before heading North gave us a chance to kick back and relax for the night.
The Hotel is perfectly placed for a whistle stop tour of Auckland, the rooms are very comfortable and of course there is the benefit of the casino for the latter part of the evening (Yes we did come out ahead!)
My only disappointment this trip is that the absolutely fantastic Depot Eatery in Federal Street (right outside the Hotel entrance) was closed for the Xmas Holidays (as were a few others). It's Al Browns Place and is a good enough reason alone to visit! (Come on TA -get it on here)More
