    We found it a very convenient overnight stop on our way from the Soiuth Island to Hamiltoin. Its central location was great for us.

  • Older travelers

    Service, staff, looked after us very well-no problems

    Very minor comment-soap bar very small, hard to grasp

  • Older travelers

    Your staff ! They were very friendly, helpful and efficient.

    The hash-browns served at breakfast were not nice. Too greasy and tasted as though they were out of a packet. Fresh hash-browns would be a lot nicer.

  • Group of friends

    Location and the bed. Closeness to the airport and Lanbton Quay shopping

    The cafe downstairs was not open Saturday morning

  • Older travelers

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    It was central and the staff were pleasant and helpful.The foyer with music late afternoon was a welcome touch .

    We were unaware we could not open the window for fresh air as we both are not keen on air con ! Also .....relaxing in the foyer it is a bit disconcerting to see so many people use it as a thoroughfare to go from one level to another at the end of the day !
