No problems with this hotel - the staff were charming, the room good and we had a lovely meal in the restaurant in the evening. It's also pretty handy for the airport, and is on a good bus route into town. Recommended.

We stayed here for two nights.Our room was adequately furnished and stocked and we slept well. Wifi was poor in the rooms but fine in the lobby area and free for twenty four hours. Staff were helpful and friendly. There are a number of shops for provisions nearby, as well as alternative places to eat in the evening. The bus stop is just outside and it cost $3.50 to get into the city centre.

Dear Iowstevie

Thank you for taking the time to review our Hotel. Feedback from our guests is very important to us and your input helps with our continuing efforts to provide excellent service and a great stay. In respect to our wifi I have contacted our provider regarding the speed. This is now being rectified as we speak as unlimited wifi use is one of many benefits we proudly offer our guests.

Thank you so much for your business and we look forward to seeing you in the future.

In short, it is small but clean. However, i think that it cannot be called hotel. This one can be labelled as a good motel between motel and inn. As a hotel, it cannot be lebelled as three star hotel, but as a motel, it could be a kind of well suited motel.

I feel the group meal was not at all satisfactory and the food overpriced and the servings way too small. I am glad I wasn't paying and if I was several of us would have sent the prawn cocktail back.. It was small sub standard and tasteless. They were hardly even shrimps. For the price the rest of the meal was uninspiring.

We have stayed twice in this hotel during a recent group trip to New Zealand.

It is the type of hotel you don't expect much of, located in the suburbs of the city, no fanfare or glitz..

However in spite of the hotel being renovated during stay everything functioned properly and efficiently, which we didn't see in other hotels of that chain in New Zealand.

Best part- practically unlimited use of WI FI, a far cry from other hotels which charge heavily for use or offer limited 20 minutes free. For a short stay- a good deal.

Room Tip: anything above first floor is fine

Very expensive and not good quality. Some work done to update rooms but small and bathrooms poorly equipped. Customer service wasn't very good. Needs to improve both quality of bathrooms and attitude of frontline staff
