Stayed here for a few days during a month-long trip in NZ. This was the most expensive hotel we stayed at during our trip and was expecting something fairly snazzy but unfortunately the place is a bit tired and run-down.
The "superior" room we had was clean but no better than a motel - basically a bed (albeit huge), cheap looking chipboard furniture, TV, safe, and an totally standard bathroom complete with mouldy silicon sealant and a lime-scale encrusted shower head. The pool was outside had a nice outlook but was unheated and dirty with various things floating around in it. The restaurant looked fairly dull so we didn't even try it.
Pretty disappointing compared to some of the cheaper places we stayed at in NZ.
One morning at about 9am there was a Maori sailing lesson - lots of shouting etc - being conducted right outside our room's window which woke us up. Not sure if this is a regular occurrence but its pretty stupid place and time to hold it.
Staff however were excellent and very helpful - full marks there. Also great if you are planing on visiting the Waitangi Treaty grounds as it is literally next door to it.
