Being in the centre of city was important to us, 24 hr attendent in office was good and very helpfull,
The bar and restaurant we found a bit casual. Not always asked what we wanted and found that we had to catch waiters eye or walk up to the bar and order. we waited 10 min to get a drink (gin tonic $10) and 25 min to get a few hot chips. Young girls walked in from the street got prompt service and full glasses of wine. (topped up) Otherwise fine.
Good location. Staff are nice.
Friendly staff who were very patient with me when I had botched my booking!
clean room, restaurant on site, very handy for my conference venue
a lot of road noise from my room
The location suited us perfectly, the parking at the hotel was essential to our stay, the room was spacious for the tarriff
The bar and resturant was closed, it was a Sunday evening & am not sure if that is normally the case.
Very convenient for non drivers,just a short walk to the Malls and Courteny Place.Not far to Te Papa etc and easy to catch a bus.
Because it was full the rooms were not ready and the poor staff seemed run off their feet.But everyone had a great attitude so we felt well looked after.
Its relative proximity to the CBD; politeness and willingness to assist of the sole member of staff I met.
Noisy; the room was overlooked by a multi-storey car park that was both open and illuminated throughout the night.
The hotel was totally adequate for the price and nice and central to where I had to go.
I was in room 711 and the thing I didnt like was the sound of a howling gale coming in through the window that didnt shut properly - sorry but I think that is a complaint!
service was brilliant - v noisy outside though
I found the room to be perfectly pleasant, clean and bright with cheerful decor.
The day was hot and there is no air con in the rooms. The service desk did offer us a fan though.
