We arrived at The Holiday Inn at Auckland Airport on 27th February 2014 after a flight fom Melbourne.We had booked for two nights before picking up our hire car to drive north to PAIHIA in the Bay of Islands. On arrival we knew there was a problem and it transpired that the hotel was overbooked. Following some discussion we were sent by taxi just down the road to the Sudima Hotel. Staff at the holiday Inn arranged for my wife and I to have a complimentary evening meal to compensate for the change. We enjoyed our stay at the Sudima even though we had to pay the taxi driver to take us there. It was obvious that the Holiday Inn staff were working under pressure and didn't just manage to cross all the T's .
Following our Bay of Islands holiday we checked back into The Holiday Inn for one night on 5th March 2014 before flying to Perth in Western Australia.
We were greeted by a very friendly male receptionist who made us feel very welcome. We had a pleasant room on the ground floor which opened into the garden. We enjoyed a delicious evening meal in the hotel bar and an excellent breakfast before departure the next morning. The hotel was busy but the service excellent.
We caught the airport shuttle which runs regularly at a nominal charge.
All in all we had a very good experience in The Holiday Inn and would stay again.
