Refurbished rooms

Since the Hotel had been taken over by Stay Well group, this is our first stay although we have stayed there as our favourite Hotel many times during the last 6 years when it was under Accor Group. Most rooms have been refurbished and our room had a new look with new paint and new shower cubicle and mini fridge. But the King size bed being two single beds put together was not that great as it sank in the middle. But the mattresses and the linen and towels appeared to be new and comfortable. The Lift shakes quite a bit and it was a bit scary. Great location on Queens St, near to Britomart and a number of Cafes, Banks and Money Changers and Westfield Shopping Mall and the Sky Tower and Cinemas are only less than a km away. Well connected to Airports with Airbus service. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms above 5th Floor are nice and quiet. Great stay for families.

Holiday and visit relative trip

The hotel is well located for our needs in visiting my relatives and for my holidays. It could hv been better if they provide free wifi in the room. This is now a standard everywhere. On the overall the hotel is well situated for exploring, tours, shopping n food.

Nothing out of the ordinary

Room was comfortable enough - nice views and sound proofed from the hustle and bustle of the city. Close to everything I needed in the city but unfortunately unforeseen costs like car parking and no parking out front when checking in was annoying.

Location.. location.. location

The room was clean and exceeded my expectations (I didn't know there would be cooking facilities)... the staff went out of their way with service ... the only down side is there was only one lift the other out of order. I would be happy to stay there again and recommend this Hotel to others the price is very affordable many thanks

Tiny Room almost zero facilities

This was a rip off - the samallest hotel room I have ever seen. When I asked why I was I put in it I was told it was because I was a "single" and this was a single room - why was I charged the full rate? When I asked if she had ever been in the room she said yes when asked if she would put her parents in the room she said no. You could not walk around the bed the room was so small. The bathroom was not much smaller than the actual sleeping area. I once slept at the top of the stairs in a bed sit house in London in the mid sixties and there was more room there. Appalling attitude to guest comfort - if you are single do not bother leaving your money here. The reception area at the front entrance waas filhty for the whole of my stay and if it was ever swept I did not notice.

Great central location in city centre, walking distance to trains, the quay.

Excellent stay - lovely large room in a comfortable stylish older restored/refurbished hotel at excellent price. Only complaint was the noise of laneway diners below the hotel (we were on the 6th floor and with the bedroom window open for air, were kept awake till 3am every night by noisy diners in the open laneway restaurant below. Also - not enough places to put things in the room and bathroom (like shelves and benches/tables) to put luggage and bathroom stuff. The small kitchenette was very useful over 3 days/nights. Staff terrific. Their internet too slow.
