This hotel was by far the nicest hotel we stayed in during our New Zealand trip. The rooms are incredibly spacious with all of the modern amenities you'd expect at a 4 or 5 star hotel.

We had an enjoyable stay with a large room on the sixth floor. Plenty of space for myself and two teenagers. Free Wifi was a must for the teens and despite being on the main street it was quiet and restful. Short walk to the Art gallery, cafes and shopping! We had a very enjoyable stay.

The location of the hotel was fantastic, so close to the Octagon and train station. The facilities at the hotel could use a little upgrade but overall we had a great experience. The staff was helpful and friendly. Wi-fi was great.
