We stayed at this hotel 20/21 November 2009. Check in was OK, but the staff were offhand and quite rude. We were offered a special deal on the Maori show in the hotel that evening, which we took up and it was very good. We were in the 200 block, which gave us a slight view of the lake, but a much better view of the roof of the main building! The hotel is cunningly designed to apparently ignore any possible views and instead show the other blocks in the hotel.
The room was a fairly standard hotel room. The beds were comfortable and we slept well. The bathroom was large, but as always not enough room to put out much personal gear. The shower was large, but relaxed! The water was not very powerful at all and when my friend in the next room took a shower at the same time we both experienced alternating hot and cold bursts, not nice.
Breakfast was OK, lots of choice, but it did get crowded with bus groups at times. The bar was OK and did at least stay open when the bar tender realised he had guests who wanted to drink after 10pm.More
