The staff at the Grosvenor were very helpful right from our first phone enquiry.
Location is excellent and it was great for us to look at all the lovely buildings nearby. (Although I wouldn't want to be there in an earthquake! We're from Christchurch and we were somewhat nervous about the stability of the buildings).
Rooms were fine. Bathrooms very dated. Walls in need of a fresh coat of paint. Beds were super comfortable.
Dinner in the restaurant was excellent. Yummy food and great value. The restaurant also had a warm inviting atmosphere.
