Fantastic

My husband and I have stayed in many hotels in Auckland CBD and because of accommo overload we were unable to book anything in that location and Thank You for that...... this hotel was awesome, the views, space, amenities, quiteness the list goes on were perfect. If we had to pick on something it probably would have been the parking, not a lot of it within the hotel. Definitely will return.

Drive down to Devonport and get the ferry into the city. So handy and hassle-free if you need to travel on from there catch a train at Britomart. Great services that should be utilised.
