Although the hotel is somewhat plain and basic, we were comfortable our two nights in this hotel and enjoyed our stay. The location is very good - close to the Octagon but up a steep hill - if you are walking impaired you need to think about using a taxi.
Our room was large and spacious, with one double bed and one single. Sliding doors led to a balcony which could badly use a coat of paint and freshening up. The furnishings were newish but not elegant or fancy. There was plenty of room for two suitcases on the luggage table. Although without a writing desk, there was a round table with two comfortable chairs. Nighttime lighting was dim - one reading light between the two beds and one floor lamp in the corner. Mattress on the small bed was medium hard but comfortable. The big mattress was soft - watch out if you are prone to lower back problems. Pillows were thin and on the hard side. Bedding was different but flexible - a light comfortable top sheet with two blankets - ready for any temperature.
Bathroom had a large counter with plenty of room for all your stuff. Taking a shower involved a continuous fight with the shower curtain - maybe soon NZ will discover the curved curtain rods now prevalent in American hotels. Room included a working hairdryer and a full length mirror. The Tv was old and received only 8 channels. No wireless in the room; 20 minutes free in the bar. The hotel offered 3 computer stations but they were quite expensive.
