This is a straight forward modern build hotel. We had a "Premium Executive Room Double" which was as good as any Intercontinental and similarly priced. It had a bath which was a big plus. So far so good.
Food in the restaurant (the cheaper of the two) tries to be too pretentious by far [e.g. Cauliflower2 on the menu is intended to convery that the meal is accompanied by a tiny amount of cauiiflower prepared in two ways] but doesnt have the cuisine nor the service to deliver on it. The breakfast buffet was good though but your had to ask for your coffee cup to be refilled.
HOWEVER - my biggest gripe is that you pay for in room internet access. I havent seen that in a quality hotel for a long time. The initial 200Mb is free but only one computer can access it at a time (in our double room). Once you exceed that you are expected pay NZ$10 per 200Mb. Antedeluvian to say the least.
