“Heritage Hotel with a warm feel”
Reviewed 22 April 2010

Yes, its noisy. Lets get that out of the way first. This is a Heritage Hotel that is unable BY NZ LAW to install double glazing or other noise prevention devices (its in the Hotel Handbook, if you care to read it). They also suggest you use 'good old fashioned earplugs', which is exactly what we did, and the whole family (including an 8 week old baby) slept like, well, babies. I've lived in the city much of my life, and don't mind traffic and human noise - it makes me feel alive. No hotel is perfect, and this one has noise to deal with being in the absolute heart of Auckland's 'fun' disctrict. I suggest you get used to that before you come, or definitely stay elswhere.

The hotel itelf is period, and beautiful, from Reception right through the corridors to your front room door. The rooms are fashionable, in keeping with the heritage theme, well fitted out, have excellent linen and coverings, a high quality finish with original (almost antique) furniture and offer excellent value. The location is absolutely superb (shopping at Smith & Caugheys or Queen Street strip, Civic Theatre for 'RENT', good eating all around, high-end bottleshops, dairys, Sky City Casino, a busy taxi rank, all 1-2 mins walk from your room) and the apartments have all mod-cons so you can comfortably cook a big meal right in your room and entertain guests, with the fully stocked kitchen and huge fridge at your service.

The service could do with a look - the front desk are efficient and helpful, and room service is fine, but perhaps some recognition of previous customers could be built into their computer systems? Coming in and being addressed as a stranger, when you have stayed before, is slightly off-putting. But otherwise, they do a fine job. We had no problems with room servicing, given we were out of the room 3-4 hours a day from 10am onwards.

Get an executive suite (ask for a discount at Reception) and live it up - superb.

Reviewed 3 December 2009

Checked in, no help with luggage because they couldn't be bothered and then on 2nd night, got broken in to (while I was asleep!) and handbag stolen! Everything gone, when reported to reception at 7.30am was told that staff that no one could access my floor and maybe I should search again! Turns out my bag turned up in a room 6 doors down minus everything - aparently master keys had been stolen but they didn't bother to change any locks. Inside job???? Management were not even sorry, a joke! The hotel is noisy and not a 4 star standard, the cleaning - I think the house keepers just look at the room and pretend - Never ever stay at the Elliott hotel
