Stayed 1 night. Good hotel with nice views of bay, close to attractions and 15mins to airport. Staff OK not totally warm and welcoming but helpful so OK I suppose. Stayed on a higher level in the rear building and was quiet.my room seems to have been recently upgraded. Dual buildings split in the middle so if you are on...

Located right on Oriental Parade key, this hotel is very convenient to the lively harbor walk, the Te Papa Museum, and a grocery store. The major shopping district is about a 10 minute walk. The layout is a bit strange, but manageable. The restaurant, bar and pool are on the 7th floor. If your room is above that, you must...

This hotel is perfectly located with wonderful views but is definitely in need of a makeover, especially the swimming pool. Walking distance to the city is a big bonus. Great service from staff who were extremely discerning the next morning as there had been an earthquake.

Well located hotel easy walk into the city and a short taxi drive from the airport. The hotel is in need of refurbishment both in public areas and bedroom, very 1980's. Staff pleasant and hotel offers all the services required at this level.

It's only a short walk into the main city area from the hotel. Reception were very helpful when checking in and especially the concierge team who ensured by calling the Interisland ferry that our booking...

OK, now this place is in need of a little makeover particularly the bar, restaurant and swimming pool area... basically all of level 7. But my family and I were very happy with the hotel and the room was clean, tidy and well equipped. The only complaint I would have about the room itself was the lack of water pressure...

Stayed there 3 nights. Nice and Handy location with friendly staff. Parking expensive but convenient. Good buffet breakfast. But be warned! Not the 5 star hotel as it used to be. The hotel is in need of a makeover. The pool area is very dated and not not whats to be expected from a 7th floor pool looking over the...

Very comfortable and high quality room with a great view of the harbour. It's also in an ideal location for visiting the sites, particularly the excellent Te Papa Museum. The restaurant is good although the views from the restaurant aren't as good as they are from the rooms at the front of the hotel. I would definitely stay here again...

We arrived late in the afternoon and left very early the next morning so my review is limited. Key things; the location is fabulous, there is a guest laundry, the views from floor 9 and above are exceptional, the rooms are a good size, it costs $30 per night to park but kudos to the staff on reception who told...
