“Great hotel”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

Stayed here overnight and really enjoyed this hotel. Restaurant was great and breakfast included yummy. Our room was a little small, (we had our son with us) and the harbour view was a water view rather than full waterfront. Nevertheless we liked it - very good big bathroom and if we go again we would be sure to request a full harbour view. The whole experience was well worth it!

Stayed September 2013

Our family stayed here in a 2 bedroom apartment. No sea view though, but a balcony that overlooked the entrance and carpark. Across the road the train kept us amused as carriages were shunted by.
It was a huge apartment, and very nicely furnished, well maintained and clean.
Just a couple of things that may be useful to know... the shower was over the big spa bath - this might be an issue for someone with mobility problems, as you need to climb into the bath to use the shower,and there were not enough handrails. Also to note - only one mirror in the whole 2 bedroom apartment, which was in the bathroom. I would normally expect a full length mirror in the master bedroom. One mirror meant we had to wait our turn to do hair, makeup etc while others were showering.
We had a nice experience at this hotel and would stay again, next time perhaps requesting a sea view, as staying at the back of the hotel did not really give us the full appreciation of staying on the water.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view.

Lovely to hear you enjoyed your stay and will visit again. Yes our 2 Bedroom Harbour View Apartment may be the best option for a similar experience where you can enjoy the beautiful water views. We do look forward to seeing you again. Many thanks

This hotel is a wonderful showcase for experiencing the best NZ has to offer- the location is amazing but you do need a room with water view. We had Room 125 which was right over the sea. What better way to lunch than with room service of fish and chips, a glass of Sauvignon, sitting on your own balcony over the water. Reception staff are friendly and helpful, rooms lovely, dining experience is good too- again with stunning views over water and efficient staff. We enjoyed our meal, (except for disappointing bread and dips) but I do think the prices for main meals are too expensive and there are so many restaurants on the waterfront with equally good food but less expensive.
However, the convenience and pleasant experience of strolling down the corridor to enjoy your dinner is a persuasive reason to dine at Halo Restaurant.

Room Tip: Ask for water view

I stayed here for 2 night's while in town for work, and i asked for a room with a balcony, this was granted and i had a lovely room with a view to the harbour, location is great, and some great places to run
Bed was comfortable, bathroom was lovely with heated flooring, a great big shower and a bath.
air conditioning, good table set up for working at.
Like some other comments i also like a hot chocolate at night, and they had none.
I had room service both nights and both meals were very good, nice and warm and delivered quickly. One night the internet played up and was very slow but the reception staff were onto this quickly, no other problems with it. Room size is good.
Very quiet, I could only just hear doors closing, but no other noise which is great.

Room Tip: I was in Room 118 and that is great on the 1st floor so no stair or elevator to use.

We came here for my partners birthday and got a package which included breakfast. Overall, the package was great value for money. Our room was clean, modern and had a cute balcony with great view. We had an awesome time and can't wait to stay there again!

we had a wonderful stay. the food was really good at the restaurant and it had lovely views.
The room was a good size. only thing I would suggest is the bathroom doors could be changed as they are quite see through.

after checking in to our 'harbour view room' (room 101) we were disappointed to find that the room was actually only 'harbour glimpse'. the room led straight out onto the patio right by the pool and adjacent to the function room. after complaining to the reception staff they did kindly upgrade us which did make our stay very pleasant we were just a bit disappointed we had to complain.
On the plus side the shower was amazing! downside... the glass door was very heavy to slide and it did light up the bedroom during the night.
overall it is overpriced.

Room Tip: king rooms with a balcony facing the harbour (room 122) excellent. not much sun tho.

Thank you for your review, sorry to hear you found us overpriced and not happy with your Harbour View room. We would recommend if it is the view you are after to book one of the Premium Water View room categories. Many thanks again for taking the time send in your feedback
