My standards when it comes to hotels are very low. But I am lying in my room now and have just signed up to trip advisor to express the disgust I have in this hotel. I have now had 2 disappointing dinners in a row. The first was a "decent stack of ribs" where I got served 4 very small ribs. Tonight I was served a ham and pineapple pizza that smelt and tasted so sweet I couldn't even finish it. I didn't know it was possible to mess up a ham and pineapple pizza. When I sent back the pizza I was told by the chef there was nothing wrong with the quality of the pizza. The service in the restaurant and bar is terrible and invasive at first then drops off to nothing. The rooms smell and seriously lack ventilation. The two good things about this place are the aioli and the tuatara beer. This is an overpriced and dated hotel with an absolutely terrible restaurant. It's do far away from anything you can't even go eat anywhere else.
